Tails of the City Mouse 2.0

Tails of the City Mouse 2.0

Every year, the Microsoft store in San Francisco throws an AIDS benefit entitled Tails of the City. They give artists and designers a Microsoft basic mouse to be made into sculptures that are auctioned. My mouse this year was a translucent rubber casting with an embedded $5,000 microarray from Incyte Genomics that contains the entire mouse genome on it.

The 737 cart is modeled after these unusual, but oddly familiar, porportions, creating a rolling file that efficiently uses space, doubles as a counter-top, and is reminiscent of airline travel. Some of the features of this design include the following: Mobility Dual-access from front or back See-thru visibility Light-weight Locking doors Easily connected banks of carts Flexible configurations (solid shelves and hanging file shelves of different sizes) Optional top surfaces Optional...
