Highlight

Meerkat is a robotic-like object with three small displays which pop up unexpectedly, catching your attention by presenting personal digital content from the cloud as well as your own hard drives. Unlike digital picture frames, screensavers, and other static screens, it exhibits eccentric, fun and novel behaviours and interactions.
