|Physical Remote Collaboration
| Physical Telepresence uses shape capture and display to physically enhance interactions with remote people and environments.
inFORM dynamically changes material and form to continuously adapt the physical and virtual interface to user interactions.
Sublimate explores rapid and fluid transitions between physical and visual representations of dynamic digital content.
Jamming User Interfaces enable programmable stiffness, haptic feedback and deformation, for new types of flexible and shape-changing interactions.
