2. Waveface Light – An interface to the cloud that features a touch-sensitive screen and backed by a soft, flexible material it can be used in a conventional screen-keyboard configuration or as a flat single-screen tablet.

3. Waveface Ultra - A highly portable device that can be strapped to the wrist – it provides access to information and services anywhere, anytime.
