I am starting my Christmas list today. At the top: the inForm morphing table from MIT’s Media Lab. It uses a huge grid of tiny square pins in real time that replicate the movements of your own hands or other items picked up by a Kinect motion detector. And it looks incredibly fun to play with.  (h/t Gizmodo)
