It's a simple enough premise:
CW&T exists to create the things we want to see in the world.
And it is also easy enough to forget that design can be kept this, well, simple. CW&T is the small design practice of Che-Wei Wang and Taylor Levy, who mix backgrounds in Architecture, Film and Computer Science and work across typically discrete categories including software, products, and projects that merge the two. They call their design approach “medium-agnostic”: 
Our practice centers around an iterative process of sketching, prototyping, testing, writing code, machining parts, and building each edition ourselves to assess our intuitions around improving our everyday experiences. Projects range from devices that alter our perception of time, an electronics curriculum for artists, an astrological compass for space travelers, to objects engineered to last multiple generations. Whether by changing expectations around how long products could last, challenging conventional timekeeping or reconsidering simple routines, we design each project with analogous guiding principles that have been ingrained into our home and work. 
Their projects range from the directly useful like this pen which merges writing and measuring [↓]: 

to projects that are distinctly less useful, such as this single bit, 1 Hz CPU (really just a blinking light) which they call the world's slowest computer [↓]: 

More than one project merges the form and/or function of more than one product in one object, a physical mash-up of sorts. For example, the TV Barrow [↓] is a television and a wheelbarrow which arrives from CW & T’s specific experience:
We love watching movies in bed, but we also love watching stuff in the living room. To fulfill both loves, we built a wheelbarrow for our screen so we could easily move it around and maneuver up and down small steps.

The Orange Dot [↓] is very much as advertised. 

We can ask them about this last one when they visit class today.
