Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have invented a device that allows people to remotely manipulate objects using a camera that sees in three dimensions and what they call a motorized “pin screen.”
The technology has been named inFORM by MIT’s Tangible Media Group.
The device works when a person puts an object or moves in front of the depth-sensing camera.
The movements registered by the camera then occur on the pin screen in a different location.
This technology has so many different possible applications however first thoughts lean towards task completion in the urban development sector or perhaps even the medical field.
