focus / data storage

focus

Focus is a data storage that enables user to establish direct interaction with data. User can receive, send, share and manipulate data directly. It is a kind of "data-visible" USB stick.
Usage: User targets on the folder that he wants to transfer to his device. When he pushes the button, receiving/sending data process starts.
Technology: Photodiode technology, which was early used in the game of Duck Hunt, is suggested while targeting on the screen. It uses light as the method of detecting where on the screen you are targeting. By using radio frequency, focus sends commands to the compute. It gets data from computer by using Bluetooth.
