Creating Desktop Applications With node-webkit
The node-webkit project, which was created at Intel and open sourced in 2011, is an attempt to take the pain out of offline single-page application development.

The project provides a WebKit browser that has been extended with the the ability to control user interface elements normally off-limits to web developers. The browser’s security configuration is relaxed, assuming that the application code you’re runnning is trusted. And, most interestingly, the browser integrates Node.js, allowing node-webkit applications to leverage a wide array of functionality other than what HTML5 APIs provide.

Eye Catcher on Vimeo
Using a combination of industrial robotics and high power magnets, a seemingly inconspicuous frame on a wall, magically comes to life. Through a series of experimental films, photography and physical prototypes, the primitive effects of eye (and eye-like) stimuli have been investigated. The Eye Catcher project in its conclusion has developed a novel expressive interface where emotion recognition algorithms read audience faces and in-turn trigger the animation of a face formed of ferrofluid.
