New ideas and technologies are constantly being launched but none, in my opinion, are as interesting as MIT‘s new inFORM.

To the average person looking down at the display it could simply be perceived as 3D pinart, but the technology behind the product is much more advanced.

The inFORM can be used to interact with someone across the globe as well as manipulate physical objects at a distance.  In essence, it’s a self-aware computer that can display light and shapes and is a step towards MIT’s vision to give dynamic physical form to digital information.

But the question remains, how long until this type of technology becomes common place in our homes and offices?  The tech geek in me hopes it’s sooner rather than later!
