How about an all-in-one device that can be used as a laptop, desktop or digital picture frame? Meet FRAME. If you’re not familiar with this technology, OLED displays can be manufactured on flexible plastic substrates, which leads to the possibility of fabrication of flexible organic light-emitting diodes for other new applications, such as roll-up displays embedded in fabrics or clothing. If a substrate like polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is used, they may be produced inexpensively, while still maintaining their durability, as plastic substrates are shatter-resistant, unlike the glass displays used in LCD devices.

Manta rays are sea creatures characterized by triangular pectoral fins, horn-shaped cephalic fins and large, forward-facing mouths. If you were to transform one of them into a functional computer mouse, it would probably look something like the “Manta Mouse” by industrial designer Alberto Aguado Baudil. There are no fancy LEDs, but this computer accessory was designed for the ultimate in comfort. Read more for additional pictures and information.

Technically speaking, a computer mouse is essentially a handheld pointing device that detects two-dimensional motion relative to a surface, which is translated into the motion of a pointer on a display to allow for smooth control of the graphical user interface. Did you know that computer engineer Bill English helped inventor Douglas Engelbart build the first mouse prototype in 1964? We’ve come a long way since then, and have seen countless versions of this device over the years, and the latest is “The Hemisphere” by industrial designer Deokhee Jeong.
