Khronos Projector

This is one of the finest and most original ideas for an installation I've seen. Check out the Khronos Projector created for siggraph by some Japanese academics. Its an installation that turns a sequence of video frames into a three-dimensional space-time volume, and allows the user to create ripples through the space by interacting with their hands. I can't say I've ever seen anything like it... its such a natural idea and so beautifully executed, and provides a great parallel to the way that 3 dimensional space and time co-exist in a way that is far easier for the human mind to understand..... genius. Theres even a little processing demo applet here (oh and thanks to nick c for the link)
