MIT genius Jinha Lee has created an incredible computer-controlled system for levitating objects. The project, called ZeroN, uses magnets, a Kinect visual system, plus special software that enables either the computer to move a steel ball around in space, or a human to just grab it and move it, essentially telling the computer where it should go.
It can even remember how it was moved, then repeat the movement automatically.
Jinha is an interaction designer and computer scientist working at MIT Media Lab. He is crazy about levitation, media arts, physics, linguistics, italian films, piano, mythologies, kimchi and natto.
