Kinect-Driven Interface Turns 3D Shapes and Movements Into Reality

With the advent of touchscreens and increasingly powerful mobile computers, digital interface innovation has become one of the most exciting areas of research. Now a new project called inFORM, crafted at the MIT Media Lab, offers a peek at an even richer interface dynamic for future devices. Combining 900 actuators connected to square rods with the Microsoft Kinect, the team, which included Sean Follmer, Daniel Leithinger, Alex Olwal, Akimitsu Hogge and Hiroshi Ishii, was able to create an interface that brings computer generated 3D objects and motions to life via real world shapes and movements. “We are using two Kinects — one Kinect is mounted
