Interacting with a Shape-Changing Display Prototype

Dhairya Dand, an inventor at MIT's Media Lab, created a shape-changing 2.5D display with the help of wireframes and linear actuators, a depth camera, a projector, and a silicone rubber screen. The working prototype is called Obake, named after a mythical Japanese creature that shapeshifts, and it imagines how users would interact with an elastic display. Pinch-able and pull-able, data could come to life.
