Gravity Sketch

The Gravity Sketch, from London, UK. Sketch in space with …

* A transparent tablet with an embedded Arduino chip
* An infrared stylus
* Augmented reality glasses

Wear the AR glasses, draw 3d designs. See them hover in the air above the tablet. Rotate them with the stylus, as if they were a 3d model.
