A new interface gives viewers more interactive control over images on screen.

The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology of Japan has developed a touchable 3D system that provides a feeling of touching and manipulating objects on screen. The “i3Space” requires the viewer to attach a device to their fingertips and then uses the movement of the fingers to calculate the virtual force applied to a 3D image and modify it accordingly. Scientists say that their real time virtual reality system could be used in game interfaces and medicine.
