Because We Can is a design firm in West Oakland that makes really cool furniture! They had a little room to showcase their stuff at IDEO, and I got to play with their cool LED light coffee tables. You wave your hand over it and it triggers the lights where it detects movement.

See it in action:

They also make really neat stuff carved with a CNC routing machine.

They make incredible furniture, and they’re also super nice people.
Viva Because We Can!
