Incredible video of the magic morphing table that lets you touch things

Remember the morphing table that can replicate your body and movements in real time? It's name is inForm. Daniel Leithinger—from the Tangible Group at MIT Medialab—just told Sploid about their first official video. This thing is so damn awesome.


They added a screen in portrait mode so you can see the person who is remotely manipulating the objects thanks to the morphing table. Cameras on the remote location read the hands movements in 3D, scanning the body parts and moving the table elements to reproduce them.

I imagine the day in which remote presence systems are completely indistinguishable from reality and I just can't wait.


They also have other functions, including some kind of nagging mode to tell you someone is calling you. So neat!
