Hulger
Hulger is a British company that designs electronic equipment. It was formed from Pokia after a trademark dispute with Nokia by Nicolas Roope and Michael-George Hemus. The company founded on the idea of old telephone handsets plugged into cellphones but soon diversified, adding voice over IP applications. Whilst Pokia handsets were modded existing designs, Hulger handsets are newly commissioned products, created specially for use. In late 2005 two Bluetooth models allowed wireless use with both cellphones and PCs/Macs. The company founded in London, England

Fairey sold 290 of the posters on the street immediately after printing them. It was then more widely distributed—both as a digital image and other paraphernalia—during the 2008 election season, initially independently but with the approval of the official Obama campaign

One Laptop Per Child
One Laptop
Laptop
per Child (OLPC) is a non-profit initiative established with the goal of transforming education for children around the world; this goal was to be achieved by creating and distributing educational devices for the developing world, and by creating software and content for those devices. Its primary goal continues to be to transform education, by enabling children in low-income countries to have access to content, media and computer-programming environments. At the time that the program launched, the typical retail price for a laptop was considerably in excess of $1,000 (US), so it was infeasible to achieve this objective without also bringing a low-cost machine to production. This became the OLPC XO
OLPC XO

Hyperbolic Paraboloid
In geometry, a paraboloid is a quadric surface that has (exactly) one axis of symmetry and no center of symmetry. The term "paraboloid" is derived from parabola, which refers to a conic section that has the same property of symmetry. There are two kinds of paraboloids, elliptic and hyperbolic, depending on the nature of the planar cross sections: A paraboloid is elliptic if almost all cross sections are ellipses; it is hyperbolic if almost all cross sections are hyperbolas. Equivalently, a paraboloid may be defined as a quadric surface that is not a cylinder, and has an implicit equation whose part of degree two may be factored over the complex numbers into two different linear factors. The paraboloid is hyperbolic if the factors are real and elliptic if the factors are complex conjugate. An elliptic paraboloid is shaped like an oval cup and has a maximum or minimum point when its axis is vertical
