MIT develops 3D interaction technology

2014 at 01:50 pm by admin


The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, or MIT for short, is always making leaps and bounds in the development and practical application of technology in our daily lives. Now, researchers at MIT have developed a new application for utilizing depth-sensing cameras and 3D technology to create real world 3D environments. Titled inFORM, this technology picks up objects in front of the depth-sensing cameras and sends signals to a motorized pin screen. The pin screen will then replicate the object in 3D space, rendering both shape and motion in real-time. This technology can also be used to project images onto the pins, as well as recreate digital objects like graphs and shapes. Researchers hope that this technology will eventually be utilized in the real world by architects, doctors, engineers, and more!
