Flying pixels create self-levitating displays

A team of researchers at Queen's University's Human Media Lab have unveiled a system of flying 'BitDrones' that let users explore virtual information by interacting with levitating voxels. The system, called BitDrones, allows users to explore virtual 3D information by interacting with physical self-levitating building blocks. BitDrones is the first step towards creating interactive self-levitating programmable matter, materials capable of changing their 3D shape in a programmable fashion using s...
