MIT stories

MIT's "Copenhagen Wheel," designed by the university's SENSEable City Lab, is designed to be a simple addition to any bike that will give it some electric assistant. The benefits are obvious, and it's scored MIT's design an award from James Dyson, the vacuum king.
This is MIT student Natan Linder's LuminAR robotic lamp, and it makes for a pretty awesome office companion. That's because it's able to beam information around your office from a pico projector, and even recognize how you interact with the image, allowing you perform actions such as tapping and typing.
