Finder

Finder is a cool little device for those of you that are a little bit forgetful and misplace essentials, like your phone or your keys. Technically, Finder is a two-part RFID Locator comprising of main transparent terminal and a series of small tab stickers. Basically you are supposed to stick the tracking stickers to objects that you tend to misplace often, like keys, phone, wallet etc.

Illumishare – Microsoft’s Latest Concept Of Shared Spaces

Imagine a that you’re desk is a shared space where people can interact with you as if they were sitting across from you. This is Microsoft’s vision of shared space in its latest iteration. Though admittedly extremely simple in terms of tech (hardly more than a projector and camera), the product is simple and effective. It can be used to play games together on pen and paper, play cards, get help from remote tutors with math and other homework, and just about any other interaction where another person’s presence can be overlaid onto an augmented shared space. More in the video.
