If you want to see the company (and the 11 other finalists) pitch its product as part of next week's Harvard President's Innovation Challenge Award Ceremony, you still get tickets at www.i-lab.harvard.edu.

    Dino Rodriguez, Chase Davis and Christian Ondaatje thought they could build a way to get around some of the gaming and graphics deficiencies of Mac computers. As undergrads at Harvard, they built a device called The Wolfe, an external GPU that speeds up graphical applications such as those that use VR.

    The company definitely serves a need and is rushing to get its product to market with a little help from Intel.

    Harvard Innovation Labs Stories: Ben Pleat - Doorbell

    With his company Doorbell, Pleat is trying to build more connected communities for people who live in apartments and other similar complexes. Currently, Doorbell is testing its product in Downtown Worcester’s Grid District, trying to bring the up-and-coming urban area together through shared experiences rather than other means.
