The PalmGrip for Sony NEX6 and NEX7 cameras

"The Sony NEX6 and NEX7 camera has many menus, dials and buttons, mostly controlled by the right hand. The short height of the camera can cause a problem when holding it, as changing one's grip is needed in order to position the thumb and index finger to operate the controls. While looking through the EVF, this re–positioning can require pulling the camera away from the eye in order to see and operate the controls and put additional demands on the left hand to secure the camera.

The PalmGrip can maximize control of the camera functions by positioning the camera high in the right hand, where the thumb and index fingers operate the controls, and the middle and 4th ring finger hold the camera grip securely against the palm."

Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History: Memory Board (Lukasa)

"Lukasa, or memory boards, are hand–held wooden objects that present a conceptual map of fundamental aspects of Luba culture. They are at once illustrations of the Luba political system, historical chronicles of the Luba state, and territorial diagrams of local chiefdoms. Each board's design is unique and represents the divine revelations of a spirit medium expressed in sculptural form. While many lukasa utilize a system of denotation based on masses of shells and beads affixed to their wooden surfaces, this example communicates its content through incised designs and images carved in relief."

(The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

Instructable web-based documentation platform

"Instructables is a web–based documentation platform where passionate people share what they do and how they do it, and learn from and collaborate with others. The seeds of Instructables germinated at the MIT Media Lab as the future founders of Squid Labs built places to share their projects and help others."
