inFORM – Interacting With a Dynamic Shape Display

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. inFORM is a step toward our vision of Radical Atoms: tangible.media.mit.edu/vision/

I took a screenshot of the environment where you can create your models (see below). You have to explore the other things yourself 😉

Let’s make some 3D! 😉
