Sketch Furniture
Is it possible to let a first sketch become an object, to design directly onto space?

The four FRONT members have developed a method to materialise free hand sketches. They make it possible by using a unique method where two advanced techniques are combined.
Pen strokes made in the air are recorded with Motion Capture and become 3D digital files; these are then materialised through Rapid Prototyping into real pieces of furniture.
Very cool. Yeah, that makes it feel a little like we're actually living in the 21st century. (Via BoingBoing)

Hi there! This tutorial looks like it's a nice one, but it does not work for a deaf ividnidual. Written tutorials are better suited, but no one wants to take the time to do that. Oh well!
