Collapsible Input / Interface & 3D Design Tool

Collapsible Input
Collapsible Input

What would it be like to reach into a screen and manipulate virtual objects as in real world. Beyond is a novel collapsible input device for direct 3D interaction with digital objects. When pressed against a screen, Beyond collapses in the physical world and extends into the digital space of the screen, such that users can have an illusion that they are inserting the tool into the virtual space.

A magnetic-resonance sensor, potentiometer and IR cameras detect the accurate position and tilt of the device.
Users can select, draw, and sculpt in 3D virtual space with Beyond device.
