Fri, Nov 15th, 2013 12:00 by capnasty NEWS

Created by MIT's Tangible Media, the inFORM is a three-dimensional surface that, by changing shape in real-time, allows for someone to interact with objects remotely.

inFORM is a Dynamic Shape Display that can render 3D content physically, so users can interact with digital information in a tangible way. inFORM can also interact with the physical world around it, for example moving objects on the table’s surface. Remote participants in a video conference can be displayed physically, allowing for a strong sense of presence and the ability to interact physically at a distance.
