inFORM: Interact physically from a distance

Another great example of the digital and physical worlds intersecting.

This is a really fun device. You can see the many adaptations it could have, especially as the resolution becomes finer. Imagine placing an elastic textile over smaller fingers. What could be done with a counter top? A couch? Automobile headrest? What type of educational games might come out of this? Geography lessons? 

The idea of a shared digital space has been around for a while, but imagine a shared physical space. Something with resistance/feedback that creates a shared sense of presence while being 1,000 miles away.
