Watch this TED Talk by Jinha Lee, showing us how innovations in digital technologies are changing our future. The border between our physical world and the digital information surrounding us has been getting thinner and thinner. Designer and engineer Jinha Lee wants to dissolve it altogether. As he demonstrates in this short, gasp-inducing talk, his ideas include a pen that penetrates into a screen to draw 3D models and SpaceTop, a computer desktop prototype that lets you reach through the screen to manipulate digital objects. The question to ask ourselves as educators is : How are we going to help our students develop the skills and knowledge to think along these lines?
