The brilliantly simple (if perhaps poorly named) pCubee from The University of British Columbia’s Human Communications Technology Lab is exactly what it appears to be–a box with flat screens on 5 sides. Both the user’s position and the orientation of the box are tracked to provide a real-time, perspective-corrected illusion of 3D forms “inside” the box. I want one with an impossible pet inside, like a baby Totoro or something. [via Geekologie]
