[Engadget] New MIT tech lets you mess with objects in pre-recorded video

Despite everything going on within the frame, videos are still a passive experience to observe. You can't reach in and mess with the objects you're watching — until now. An MIT researcher has pioneered new technology that lets you "touch" recorded things, which are simulated to respond like you'd fiddled with them in the real world.

So when will this combine with VR to make interact-able "scenes" for us all to enjoy?....

Was watching a a deep space movie with a ship that had an "Earth Room" where the walls were TV's and played scenes for them to relax, Imagine them being able to pop on a headset, and "Go home" and almost nearly be there.


VR, Hoverboards, Drones, Jetpacks and more!!!
We will be going to Mars (Dec. SpaceX: Red Dragon, look it up, and realize the 2nd space race is gonna start at Xmass) soon folks, the Future is pretty much here as soon as the flying cars take off!!!

That honestly looks like an April Fools' Day joke.

Just another gimmick like 3D Touch.

This looks very interesting for game developers.

This isnt new and requires a lot of work to do right. For those who didnt watch, they basically apply a force (in this case vibration) to an object, record it, and then allow you to move,jiggle, etc the object. It's really hard to apply to real objects and make them look good because of stretching, and digital objects, you might as well use a bunch of canned animations based on force types for better results. It also doesnt account for breaking points and other issues. TLDR; it's like a moving blur effect, but not very good for actual use.

I just finished Statics for Mechanical Engineering and I can see this being applied to cantilever beams and the understanding of moments on simple beams/trusses/pipes/various rigid bodies/etc and when the technology is more mature, carried over into Dynamics of rigid bodies.
