This is what being a designer is about.

Having worked at Target before, I'm not surprised by this. They're one of the few companies that have embraced good design or just "design" in general.  It's also great to see how designers can change the way companies do business and even how people live their lives. Computers and phones are one thing and I think those objects draw us into the world of design, but the real meat of what needs good design isn't chairs or washers or clocks - it's these objects, commonly used everyday things.

Multi touch on two planes = Want.

My questions is, how is this not mass produced yet? It seems pretty doable, right? Maybe I'm just biased by the amount of want I have for it. It even picks up touch at the bend of the screen! Speaking of which, I like how they use the bend as a sort of dock, I can think of any other use for that part of the screen since it would distort the image. But, whatever, major coolness. Click through and watch the video. I'd say it only needs a little more power - there's a big lag at the video game bit.

Ikea Fira: WHYYY????

I searched the Ikea site for the Fira and couldn't find them. Found out they discontinued them. I'm in shock. Good bye little Fira's. I'll miss you.
