PEGA: new projects

PEGA design and engineering has sent us an exclusive look at some of their new projects including a translucent laptop and inflatable lamp. PEGA is perhaps best known has the design department of pegatron, a division of asus. they create interactive products that explore new directions in the relationship between people and technology. ‘pumplight’ is a small desk lamp that uses a pump instead of a switch to adjust the light. the user squeezes the pump which increases the light while also inflating the balloon. to turn off the light, open the air valve and let all the air out. their other new product is ‘hyaline’ a translucent laptop that aims to integrate elements of relaxation. the screen of the computer appears to float and allows let to shine through. the design also has a number of technical features that help reduce stress including the ability to detect wireless networks without having to turn the machine on.
