Hakanai is an interactive installation like no other, as the images are on-stage animations that move in physical patterns according to the rhythm of the live sounds that they follow. In the Japanese language, Hakanai refers to that which is temporary / fragile, evanescent / transient, and in this case, something set between dreams as well as reality.

SnapPower USB Wall Charger

At first glance, this looks like any other standard wall outlet, but on the right side of SnapPower, there's a USB charging port. That's right, there's no need to plug in any power adapters when charging your gadgets; simply plug the USB cable directly into SnapPower. It uses power prong technology in the replacement cover plate, which draws power using a pair of metal prongs that reach around the existing outlet and make contact with the screws holding its electrical wiring in place.

Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak

Scientists at the University of Rochester have discovered a way to hide large objects from sight using readily available lenses. The Rochester Cloak may looks something an optometrist would use, but it appears to be hidden when placed behind layers of lenses. Joseph Choi, a graduate student who contributed to the project, says: "From what we know, this is the first cloaking device that provides three-dimensional, continuously multi-directional cloaking. I imagine this could be used to cloak a trailer on the back of a semi-truck so the driver can see directly behind him. It can be used for surgery, in the military, in interior design, art."
