LED Matrix Coffee Table
David Afolabi
With the help of an Arduino and nearly 400 LEDs, an ordinary coffee table becomes an entertainment piece and an interactive experience. It uses a 15x25 pixel display embedded in the tabletop to show patterns and images and even play games.
Gecko Gloves
Rory Beyer
Gecko Gloves are a pair of gloves and shoes that a person can wear in order to allow them to climb up any type of surface, from glass skyscrapers to granite cliffs, just like a gecko can. Because of the microstructure of the material, the gloves adhere very strongly to a surface when there is a weight.
