What was in the near past and what is the present condition of the science and technology? The difference we can notice and at the same time we have seen the develop of the technology. What will be in the near future and what are waiting for us? The things we will see next must be wonderful. These days, many of us use Skype or Facetime to communicate with our friends and family which is great, especially if you're long distance.
However, wouldn't it be great if you could reach out and touch the loved ones you're missing? Thanks to a group of students at MIT, in the future, you will be able to do just that! By their amazing innovation you will be able to communicate with your long distance friends and family through touch!
Follmer and fellow PhD candidate Daniel Leithinger unveiled project InForm, which allows video conferencegoers to interact physically. Using InForm, one can copy the shape of his hand and its movements into a 3-D rendering that exists on a remote workspace. The prototype consists of identical work-spaces with depth-sensing cameras and sensor-based pegs that move up and down in reaction to one’s movements. This is really fantastic!
