Amazing Technology Invented By MIT - Tangible Media. 1 Video

    At the MIT Media Lab, the Tangible Media
    Group believes the future of computing is tactile.
    Unveiled today, the inFORM is MIT's new scrying
    pool for imagining the interfaces of tomorrow.
    Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a
    surface that three-dimensionally changes shape
    allowing users to not only interact with digital
    content in meatspace, but even hold hands
    with a person hundreds of miles away.
    And that's only the beginning.
    Created by Daniel Leithinger and Sean Follmer and
    overseen by Professor Hiroshi Ishii, the technology
    behind the inFORM isn't that hard to understand.
    It's basically a fancy Pinscreen, one of those executive
    desk toys that allows you to create a rough 3-D model
    of an object by pressing it into a bed of flattened pins.
    With inFORM, each of those "pins" is connected to a
    motor controlled by a nearby laptop, which can not
    only move the pins to render digital content physically
    but can also register real-life objects interacting with
    its surface thanks to the sensors of a hacked
    Microsoft Kinect.
