An Amazing, Innovative Way to Collaboratively Manipulate 3D Objects and Data – The (T)ether from MIT
Posted by Plish on June 20, 2012
I’ll let this video of the (T)ether from the MIT Media Lab speak for itself
From their website:
T(ether) is a novel spatially aware display that supports intuitive interaction with volumetric data. The display acts as a window affording users a perspective view of three- dimensional data through tracking of head position and orientation. T(ether) creates a 1:1 mapping between real and virtual coordinate space allowing immersive exploration of the joint domain. Our system creates a shared workspace in which co-located or remote users can collaborate in both the real and virtual worlds. The system allows input through capacitive touch on the display and a motion-tracked glove. When placed behind the display, the user’s hand extends into the virtual world, enabling the user to interact with objects directly.
