The future of computing is tactile. But researchers at the MIT Media Lab – Tangible Media Group – are trying to go beyond and have invented the inFORM surface, which three-dimensionally changes shape. In other terms, it allows users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. Amazing!

As you might have understood it, it’s basically a fancy Pinscreen that allows you to create a rough 3-D model of an object by pressing it into a bed of flattened pins. With inFORM you can not only move the pins to render digital content physically, but can also register real-life objects interacting with its surface.

And that’s only the beginning. WOW!
