(Newser) – The folks at MIT have unveiled a new invention that allows you to reach through a screen and interact with real objects. It sounds unbelievable, but it isn't. The invention turns 3-D data from the user into physical representations in real time, and all from a remote location. The device, which was created by MIT researchers and students, is called inFORM.

Think of the implications for porn. You could "reach" through the screen and have a 3d "experience". I see $$$$ potential here.
