Cyberarium Knowledge Fountain

Knowledge Fountain is an opportunity:

  • To demonstrate socially responsible applications of communication technology.
  • To provide a social exchange in which multiple communities can explore unconventional applications of advanced technological concepts.
  • To identify key areas where information technologies can be effectively applied to improve quality of life.
  • To encourage young minds to explore science and think about how to make the world a better place.

The design is the innovation. The lightweight table, veiled wires, and collapsible frame eliminate the costs that usually accompany nomadic computing. The interface is the innovation. Hit it, twist it, tie it, roll it, click it. You decide. It listens.

As modular, swappable, interchangeable, wearable interfaces, knowledge-fusion tools make collection and dissemination of critical data and information multi-sensory, creative, and accurate. Whether on the battlefield, in a refugee camp, in the classroom, in a science museum, a rehabilitation lab, or a natural disaster site, knowledge fusion tools will enable its users to interact with critical information.
