I Digg these games

I especially like the swarm - it almost seems like news is coming in organically.

A special request to Rahul D and karan to check it out, if they already haven't - that is.

Design Concept: Illume Display Shelf - Gizmodo

I realy like this concept for 3 reasons:

2. Has the potential to be scaled for various purposes.
3. the design student is from my pal's univ.
