Amazing 3D Remote Interface System By Professor Hiroshi Ishii Replicates Objects In Realtime (VIDEO)

This is very, very cool.

Professor Hiroshi Ishii and his students at the MIT Media Lab have created an interface that can remotely replicate in real-time objects placed under its sensors.

The video demonstrates how a ball can be "carried" with the operators hands or a bowl.

The basic premise behind the technology is quite simple - a camera traces movement in 3D, this is processed by a computer and the motion is replicated by rods.

Obviously the technology is still in it's infancy but the potential is huge.
