I also saw a show that had a segment on the xbox kinect(LEAP not out yet) and they were basically showing all of these new uses that people were developing for it. I didn't see anyone with my idea...hehe..not yet. Someone's probably already read this and is dev'ing it now! :)
I like the idea so much I almost can't stop thinking about it! You would have tools like Photoshop. A knife, a hand, a smudge......I can just imagine it. Give me a couple million, I'll make it happen...lol
I know it isn't feasible now. I was just thinking how cool that would be. All of this new 3d tech maybe in 10 years? I just really liked the idea of opening up a program like Photoshop, but instead you get a clay piece to play with....I just like that idea.
I think you're envisioning a definite possibility, perhaps not now, but definitely somewhere soon in the future. I don't think technology is the barrier--it's more getting people comfortable working within these kinds of new paradigms.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
