Everyone’s talking about the “Internet of Things,” but what exactly does that mean for our future? In this thoughtful talk, economist Marco Annunziata looks at how technology is transforming the industrial sector, creating machines that can see, feel, sense and react — so they can be operated far more efficiently. Think: airplane parts that send an alert when they need to be serviced, or wind turbines that communicate with one another to generate more electricity. It’s a future with exciting implications for us all.

inFORM is a Dynamic Shape Display that can render 3D content physically. Users can physically interact with digital information. inFORM can also interact with the physical world around us, for example moving objects on the table’s surface. In addition remote participants in a video conference can be displayed physically, allowing for a strong sense of presence and the ability to interact physically at a distance. This work is towards our vision of Radical Atoms, where we can manipulate the physical world as easily as pixels on a screen. From Tangible Media Group
