inFORM is a shape display that gives physical form to digital information. Motorized pins extend from a tabletop to form a physical sculpture that users can view, touch and deform. inFORM can also interact with the world around it, by accurately moving and manipulating objects placed on its surface. Remote participants in a videoconference can be rendered physically, allowing for a strong sense of presence and the ability to manipulate distant objects.
