Put Nano- in front of any science and you get a whole new field!

This is the inFORM Dynamic Shape Display from MIT. And it may be gypsy magic.

There’s a Kinect camera watching the demonstrator, tracking his movements, when are then transferred to a computer, which sends to an array of pillars, which move up and down accordingly using actuators.

You can use it to transfer the actual movements of your hands, so you could remotely handle objects, like in the first 2 gifs, or you can use it for 3-D modelling like in the other two, like how he uses gestures to pull a cube of the table.

Basically it’s the crazy map from the first X-Men, or the first generation of Fitz and Simmons holotable in Agents of SHIELD. Imagine what you could with this, remote handling of hazardous materials, actually 3-D movies, conference calls that could actually project what you’re doing.

The future is awesome.
