Cooper Hewitt Museum, New York

Imagine handling objects virtually and physically in real time, from thousands of miles away. The Tangible Media Group, led by MIT Media Lab’s Hiroshi Ishii, is working on such a user interaction, transforming how we may communicate and work in the future. One current project is inFORM, a dynamic-shape display that gives physical form to digital information: physical “pixels” on a table surface move in real time, in accordance with data from a motion-sensing input device.

Host/Chair:
Camera Culture

Ioannis Gkioulekas presents a computational imaging system, inspired by the optical coherence tomography (OCT) framework, that uses interferometry to produce decompositions of light transport in small scenes or volumes. The system decomposes transport according to various attributes of the paths that photons travel through the scene, including where on the source the paths originate, their pathlengths from source to camera through the scene, their wavelength, and their polarization.
