Incredible Video of the Magic Morphing Table That Lets You Touch Things

By Jesus Diaz on at

Remember the morphing table that can replicate your body and movements in real time? Its name is inForm. Daniel Leithinger, from the Tangible Group at MIT Medialab, showed us their first official video.

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.

Imagine a day in which remote presence systems are completely indistinguishable from reality -- I just can't wait.

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