1. Ototo – Make synth music from literally anything.
Our jaws dropped when we watched this video. The Ototo is a simple soundboard with a built in speaker (AUX as well) that plugs directly into anything to make music. Literally anything – fruits, vegetables, cardboard, you name it. You can also use slides and rotation sensors to change pitch. Project runs through March 2nd.

4. SeeSpace InAir – The closest your television can get to “Minority Report”.
The InAir creates an incredible augmented television experience, placing content related to your program in layers on top of the screen. While the device can work with any television, things start getting crazy with 3-D TVs. Like a scene out of “Minority Report”, you can control ‘floating’ content using either your smartphone or hand gestures (if a Kinect is attached). Project runs through March 8th.

5. Kegbot – Smart beer kegerator.
Kegbot will take your beer keg to the next level. Using a tablet powered system, Kegbot tracks the amount of beer being poured across your set of kegs. It also supports user accounts and sharing, to see exactly what beer, and how much, is being consumed by who. It’s like analytics for your beer! Project runs through February 24th.
