This is the inFORM Dynamic Shape Display from MIT. And it may be gypsy magic.
There’s a Kinect camera watching the demonstrator, tracking his movements, when are then transferred to a computer, which sends to an array of pillars, which move up and down accordingly using actuators.
You can use it to transfer the actual movements of your hands, so you could remotely handle objects, like in the first 2 gifs, or you can use it for 3-D modelling like in the other two, like how he uses gestures to pull a cube of the table.
Basically it’s the crazy map from the first X-Men, or the first generation of Fitz and Simmons holotable in Agents of SHIELD. Imagine what you could with this, remote handling of hazardous materials, actually 3-D movies, conference calls that could actually project what you’re doing.
The future is awesome.
Sequel PL vs PW where Layton gets framed for a murder (which Maya got accused of first
because she always does), but he gets bored from the lack of puzzles in jail and breaks out to solve the crime with Pheonix and then comedic manhunt hijinks ensue and it’s stupid and shut up I can dream
on a side note I absolutely did not have the time to do these.
I am a smelly American who doesn’t even have the game in my hands yet (August 29th can’t come soon enough!) but this sequel idea is BOSS and so is your amazingly gestural art and goodness this is grand :D
