Turn: A Virtual Pottery by Real Spinning Wheel

Los Angeles Convention Center, Concourse Foyer

There are many desktop modeling tools and techniques for 3D design, but their complex control procedures make them difficult for non-experts to use. Novices must learn 2D mouse functions and unfamiliar keyboard controls to create organic shapes. Turn is a natural user interface that fluently connects users' real-world sculpting experience with virtual pottery making. It suggests new 3D modeling tools and a new approach to 3D digital art and prototyping.
