T(ether) – AR Interface from MIT

T(ether) is an experimental interface from the MIT Media Lab, which its creators call ‘a tool for spatial expression’. It basically allows users to create objects that exist in a virtual space, which can be interacted with by multiple users.

There’s two things I like about this project, firstly the idea of creating and manipulating 3D objects using your hands, like a sculptor. It reminds me of the short film ‘World Builder’. Secondly, I like the thought of a shared virtual space, I can imagine all these virtual things existing in a real space but you can only see them through a pair of glasses or in this case a virtual window.
