'Beautiful Modeler’: Multi-Touch Virtual 3D Clay for iPad

Wired: “Beautiful Modeler” is a pair of applications that lets you sculpt virtual modeling-clay with your fingers, thanks to the iPad’s multi-touch capabilities.

The iPad itself is the controller, and displays nothing but five dots that represent your fingertips. A companion app, running on a nearby Mac on the same Wi-Fi network, shows the actual model on-screen. By moving your fingers around, you can squish and shape the malleable chunk of virtual Play Doh in real time, pushing and pulling it until you have the shape you want.

The story is too old to be commented.
