ZeroN project, Computer-controlled magic levitation created by MIT student

What if materials could defy gravity, so that we could leave them suspended in mid-air?

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.

ZeroN is a new physical/digital interaction element that can be levitated and moved freely by computer in a three dimensional space. Both the computer and people can move the ZeroN simultaneously. In doing so, people and computers can physically interact with one another in 3D space.

It can even remember how it was moved, then repeat the movement automatically.

I really want to experience it live …!!
