Okabe 2.5D Interaction Device

This is an interesting interface designed by Dhairya Dand and Rob Hemsley of MIT Media Lab.  The device is based on a stretched silicon skin and and linear actuators (although the use of the linear actuators is not clear in the video).  Whilst similar to several other devices, Okabe appears to have a good feel, although perhaps not as deep as it might be – there is no history, no marks left…..
