  • Philips FreeStreet – a lighting system that eliminates traditional street light poles, instead connecting a string of LEDs along narrow cables which are virtually invisible during the day.
  • The Nest Learning Thermostat – a thermostat that programs itself by learning about you, your lifestyle and home environment to develop a customized and efficient temperature schedule.
  • Channel of Mindfulness – a project inspired by the Tibetan Prayer Wheel that works to bring mindfulness or present, purposeful non judgmental thought to bear in our everyday life.

  • Future Visions for Synthetic Biology – two concepts that explore the creation of living designs through science; personal microbial culture and packaging that creates its own contents.
  • Blush Lamp – an ambient lamp that is set within drywall and painted over to make it invisible. When turned on, the lamp pulsates slowly with a pink light that glows through the surface of the wall.
  • Airship Sunrise – a thermal airship that generates lift and thrust only by solar irradiance, designed to accomplish aerial missions based on low speeds and long flight duration such as patrolling, filming, and observations.
