Hand-Tech, Concept for a new kind of device
A technological device wearable like a glove, that uses gestures as interface.
The fabric is woven with special sensors and mini projectors that read the hand’s movements and translate them into practical functions.
Using a sequence of gestures it is possible to take pictures, make videos and display information.
The glove can also translate the sign language used by deaf people (manual communication) into sound pattern (spoken language).
Hand-tech expands the communicative power of the sign language converting an iconic gesture into a concrete action.

Under the Moonlight House in Australia, Mount Hotham, Australia
Partially camouflages in a lovely natural setting, Under the Moonlight house is a project developed by Giovanni D’Ambrosio and located in Mount Hotham, Australia. The shape of the residence is highly modern, yet its inspiration derives from its local historical background, animated by cowboys and country-men. An interesting mix of stone, glass, wood and metal was used to create a home that would shelter the owners, during summer and winter. According to the architects, “Under the Moonligh House has been designed with care in order to prevent damage to local vegetation and trees. Roof is made out of insulated metal and accomplishes with functionality of any climate“.
