Here's MIT Media Lab's new floating point system to talk to machines. Man, the future is upon us. The ZeroN system is designed to provide a lasting, kinetic memory of your interaction with it and utilizes a moving stack of powerful computer controlled magnets to levitate a steel sphere as well as an optical tracking system and a projector.
The user and the computer can communicate by moving a steel ball within a three dimensional space, and the system will track the ball as the user moves it within the space. The projecter is used to display images onto the the floating sphere.
