This is an example of life copying virtual life which originally copied real life. Let me explain. What we have here is an external memory storage device. It resembles a trashcan and for good reason. The Tempo automatically stores deleted files from your computer. As the trashcan "fills up," LED lights on the outside display the "garbage." Franco Cagnina designed this gizmo for Intech.

Implications - Technologically savvy devices are growing astronomically in popularity on a daily basis, as consumers are ever-so enthralled by a product or service's technical capacities. Both small and larger businesses that can create products that incorporate interesting technical designs will continue to remain cutting-edge according to consumers.
