#2 on the mixtape (CD) is Nas’: Slave and the Master. He was to title his album the same; although now I have heard that he has to change it to something else.

‘Fuwapica Furniture’ puts on chameleon show

(weight sensors make colors darker)

Fuwapica Furniture uses sensors embedded in the table-top to work out the colour of items placed upon it.

An Apple Mac buried in the table then sends wireless messages to the four stools, which project light through their translucent shells to match, as closely as possible, the colour of the object on the table top.

Placing many objects on the table-top makes the system mix and merge colours to match the shades seen in the collection of artefacts.

The designers suggest that people can change the colour of the chairs to match their mood.
