Futuristic Morphing Table! Say it with me. This is what you will be talking about today. I can see the future unfolding when I look at this wondrous table. The morphing table was created by professor Hiroshi Ishii and his students at the MIT Media Lab.
The table replicates anything that is placed under the attached scanner in real time. Imagine the future potential of this technology. Designing and displaying 3D architectural ideas, product design and educational use are just a few ideas that are obvious.
However, imagine a block of a thousand tiny moving squares. You could create entire objects with fine detail with this technology. You could download or scan a chair from a showroom and have it replicated in seconds in your home. Bored with the design? Just download a modern design and presto change-o, you have a different chair. Welcome to our magic future!
