I’m interested in organizational systems and my first idea is to design ‘intelligent pushpins.’ It would have some knowledge of the thing it was holding and would help organize thoughts/data on a wall. If you wanted to find a document on a busy wall, the pushpin holding it up would light up or something would move, drawing your attention to it. The pushpins would change (through light or actuation) in order to group similar things or find patterns in the data. By rearranging the pushpins, you would be rearranging data.

Other ideas would be a book that responds to your senses or a bookshelf or a faucet.
