Dynamic Shape Display
The MIT Media Lab is developing a new tool which will allow for tangible interactions through the use of a typical computer. InForm from the MIT Tangible Media Group looks at integrating tangible interactions in a much more dynamic manner. After reviewing this, I am wondering if this could be a better way to make connections with students who may need to be at home for long periods of time due to illness. It would be more than a video presence. There could be some level of interaction with materials to enhance distance learning. Students could feel and be more connected with their classroom. There is a lot of room for creativity here in making the experience quite unique.
