a workplace where engineers, artists, musicians, and an astronaut work together to develop ideas

"Remixing toys" -- take sections of different toys (ray gun, helicopter, and a car) to make something new

GIS maps that emulate the experience of spreading a paper map out on a table. Including a 3D table that will not only emulate spreading the map out on a table, but add in topographic features in 3D
