What if you could take a photo of a physical object with your smart phone and control how it behaves? That’s the basic principle of MIT’s Reality Editor: it’s a tool to connect and manipulate objects around you. Theoretically, you could build connections between anything you want and draw virtual maps everywhere to make those things interact. We’re already thinking about a 909 poster that’s actually a playable machine. God bless virtual reality! If this sounds a little out there, watch the video here and get the full rundown on the Reality Editor website. And, if you like your circuits bent, check out these circuit board tattoos we featured recently.
