The inFORM, a "dynamic shape display," essentially acts as a pinscreen platform with variable height properties. As you'll see in the video above, a Microsoft Kinect tracks the hands of the user in empty space and represents those movements remotely through the pinscreen. When the user's hands move vertically, the relevant segments of the board ride up. This allows for a duller reproduction of the user's appendages in real time, but nevertheless a reproduction precise enough to pick up and move objects (like a red ball).
