Working in conjunction with the in-house design team at Microsoft, Ciro's involvement with the Tablet PC project was the creation of an aesthetic that reinforced the new, compelling technology surrounding the new Tablet technology, as well as developing working units with manufacturer Flextronics. The tablet was introduced by Bill Gates during his keynote address at COMDEX 2000, ushering in the new age of stylus based PC.
Ciro was approached to design a elegant business solution around a technology concept for multi-user conferencing device. Imagine a scenario with several business people sitting around a conference table on a conference call. With an array of cameras at the top, and a radial series of microphones in the base, the unit triangulates the source of sound [the one speaking], and simply turns on the camera facing that direction.
