The Dynamic Shape Display
You’re definitely going to watch the video on this one. The Dynamic Shape Display from MIT is exactly like those toys you had when you were a kid that had hundreds of little plastic needles suspended in a tray, and when you put your hand or any object under it the pins would assume its shape. Except MIT’s version of the toy makes it so that a person need not be in the room to make their hands rise in the needles.
The Dynamic Shape display allows a person to manipulate objects through the internet. A computer interprets your movements and sends them along.
This idea is creative because it takes a childhood toy and combines it with modern technology to achieve an astonishing result in a very easy to implement way. I’m going to put this idea in the holycrapthisisamazing file.
That makes post number five.
See you next week folks!
