Shape-shifting tech will change work as we know it | Sean Follmer | TED


curated by | March 5, 2016

“What will the world look like when we move beyond the keyboard and mouse? Interaction designer Sean Follmer is building a future with machines that bring information to life under your fingers as you work with it. In this talk, check out prototypes for a 3D shape-shifting table, a phone that turns into a wristband, a deformable game controller and more that may change the way we live and work.”

John Payne’s insight:
These active surfaces are made possible through the use of linear actuators.
