inFORM is a dynamic shape display that allows users to interact with digital information by rendering it in three dimensions. The display is equipped with a grid of “pins,” long square-topped rods, that can be rapidly moved up and down to form 3D shapes. A remote user’s hands can be rendered by the display, allowing the user to manipulate an physical object from a distance. The display can also be used to create 3D data visualizations and models. inFORM is a research project by the Tangible Media Group of the MIT Media Lab. We previously posted about the display earlier in November.
