Chat With The Inventors Of MIT's Remarkable, Shapeshifting inFORM Interface

The Tangible Media Group at MIT's Media Lab has unveiled a futuristic display made of atoms, not pixels. Join our Q&A with inFORM's inventors on Thursday, November 21st at 3pm Eastern.

"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."

In the future, you're going to be able to Skype someone a high-five...at least, that's what Sean Follmer and Daniel Leithinger at MIT's Tangible Media Lab think. 

Guided by Professor Hiroshi Ishii, Follmer and Leithinger have created the inFORM, a futuristic shapeshifting display that allows you to not only physically interact with digital content, but hold hands with another person from hundreds of miles away. 

On Thursday, November 21st at 3pm (ET), the maverick minds who brought the inFORM to life will be joining us to discuss the future of computer interaction. Moderated by Co.Deisgn writer John Brownlee, the group will discuss the invention of the inFORM, the future of interfaces, and gadgets that can transform themselves into anything we need them to be.
