Rendering real-world 3D content in real time
MIT is making pure magic:

inFORM is a Dynamic Shape Display that can render 3D content physically, so users can interact with digital information in a tangible way. inFORM can also interact with the physical world around it, for example moving objects on the table’s surface. Remote participants in a video conference can be displayed physically, allowing for a strong sense of presence and the ability to interact physically at a distance. inFORM is a step toward our vision of Radical Atoms.

Designer James White spent a decade working for other agencies before he founded Signalnoise, a one-man design studio in Nova Scotia. He was determined to explore his own aesthetic: “Fascination, wonder, and imagination made visual.”
The move was creatively productive and financially lucrative. But when he decided to dedicate a year to his passion project—taking his own bright, pop approach to iconic movie posters like Jaws and Indiana Jones—he ran into licensing roadblocks.
In this Creative Spark, James explains how he dealt with the setbacks and found new opportunities for Signalnoise.
