The idea behind this university project was to take the concept of a desktop computer and make it literal. As such the computer is built into the surface of the desk and can be raised for easy use, kept flat or turned off so that it becomes a part of the desk. This means that none of the desk space need be sacrificed when a larger amount of space is needed. The shape of the desk is such that four can be combined into a 'Node'. These nodes can then be further linked to other nodes to create networks. The Nodes were created with the idea of creative teamwork in mind. Each user of a Node Terminal can work independantly but can then 'flick' images, files or web pages at the other members of the Node allowing them to quickly and easily share data. The idea behind the 'flick' is as simple as it sounds, the user literally flicks the file across the screen in the direction of the user the file is intended for and it arrives on the other person's screen, preferably as an invitation so as not to distract the other user if they are in the middle of a task.
