Interactive Fabrications is a pair of applications that lets you sculpt applicationsmodeling-clay with your fingers, thanks to the iPad’s multi-touch capabilities.
Each finger is used to control a single touch point in the model, with multiple layers working to build up 3D volume. As the controller is connected over the wireless network, it can be moved freely to change the viewing angle of the model.
The model itself is presented on the main display rather than on the controller itself; this prevents occlusion of the model when sculpting with the whole hand. the controller can be rotated or flipped to sculpt from a range of angles.
While it isn’t that precise as other hardware-based offerings out there, at least it does help you experience a more tangible effort. Too bad the app cannot be found on the App Store just yet, and there isn’t even any word on whether it will be arriving there at all either.
