Don't want to carry your heavy laptop around? Think it doesn't really make sense to have a mobile phone and a tablet? How about putting it all into a sheet of paper? Any sheet of paper.
This project, built at the MIT Media Lab Design Innovation week, aims to turn any sheet of paper of any size into an interactive, flexible display. You can use it to watch movies, play games, or have an intuitive look at CT scans and browse through floors of a building.
Applications and scope:
Depth tracking allows for:
- Zooming in and out of maps (such as Google Maps)
- Intuitively viewing CT and MRI scans
- Browsing through floor by floor of a building, for security purposes
- Depth based gameplay
Accelerometer-like tilt tracking enables use in:
- Gameplay such as that of "Labyrinth."
- Controlling motion via tilt-sensing (similar to controlling an RC car, or even a real life one)
