You can download the font-files for free but always check the included readme-file for further information regarding the use of the font. Otherwise ask the font-authors for permission if you want to use their fonts for commercial projects.
Simtrix, a company based in New Zealand, has designed two innovative input devices (human-computer) called Swiftpoint Triped and Swiftpoint Slider. These ergonomic devices look interesting and can be seen as a replacement for tablets and digital pens.

The Swiftpoint-products aren’t available yet but you can sign up for a newsletter to get informed when they can be purchased.
Defence Mechanism has developed an online color-sheme-generator called ColorToy. This small flash-tool generates complementary colors which depend on the color values you’ve entered before. The color values can be submitted as HEX-value or RGB-value.
