Natural Keyboard is a wireless computer keyboard designed to be sustainable and is built of organic materials. The body and keys are 100% wood and the frame is covered in imitation moss. The textures serve as a tactile sensation while visually defying the standard aesthetic for modern technology products.

Music is a very powerful medium that many people use as a spiritual beacon that helps to guide, motivate, relax, and feel something greater than oneself. For such a powerful form of media we often see very bland modes to control it (mp3 players, home stereo systems, etc.), but why not give this medium the altar it deserves. In collaboration with Christie Leece and Katie Tibbetts – we created a physical computing piece called The Altar. This wooden structure uses candle light to control music.
Using webGL I created a 3D data visualization to represent the world's carbon emissions. As a user clicks and drags to rotate the globe - one can view the emissions each country generates in relation to each other. The globe hopes bring awareness to the massive amount of pollution we generate and encourages us as a global society to start proactively acting to reduce our environmental impact.
Ever wonder what it would be like to see sound? This physical installation allows a viewer to see the sound in a room through glowing typography. Each letter is equipped with its own circuit that allows for it to light up from within based on the audio levels it receives. The typography serves as a blank slate where users can pick and choose which letters they want to place on the wall to create their own phrases.
