ENLIGHTEN / Smart Desk Lamp


Our workspaces have changed. With emerging digitized tools, we control our work apps and other tools like calendar on the same screen. We repeat Alt+Tab to switch apps to find information, which interrupts workflow. Enlighten is a smart desk lamp, consisting of two projectors covering the wall and the desk separately and a depth camera that trace users’ movements. By turning any surface into a smart surface, users are able to display contents around the desk and control apps, memo, and click actions with fingers. Enlighten enables users to improve work efficiency and enhance privacy when turned off, all while keeping the desk clean and neat.
