ViewLite Plus

The ViewLite Plus dynamic monitor arm is a unique product.

It provides enough friction to prevent the screen from sagging, and almost no friction at all when the user is moving the monitor upwards. This method completely eliminates the necessity for springs or gas struts.

i.Dummy

The i.Dummy project was conceived 5 years ago by Dr. Allan C.K.Chan of the Institute of Textiles & Clothing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. This was done as dummies are vitally used in the fashion industry for design and fitting and they are often available in single size and shape. Even when they are billed as a certain size, their shape and physical profiles can be variedly different.
