Manipulate and Tug On a 3D Interactive Display With Your Hands

from PSFK

Technologies like Ultrahaptics have used ultrasound to miraculously recreate the sensation of touching something. There's something even cooler afoot, though: Ultrahaptics is an outgrowth of a larger, EU-supported research project called GHOST (Generic, Highly-Organic Shape-Changing Interfaces) that intends to add a 3D interactive display aspect to these phantom experiences. The project, spearheaded by English, Dutch and Danish researchers at various universities, aims to create deformable displays and build on the ultrasound technology to make those displays feel-able and even squishable. "Emerge," for example, allows data in bar charts to be pulled out of a screen by your fingertips. You can then use this method of interaction to rearrange data and break it down differently. The team is also studying the devices as a way of modulating and playing music, displaying information and allowing for interaction at the same time. more
