MIT develops technology to digitally program water droplets

Researchers from MIT are developing a technology that transforms water droplets into programmable, interactive tools for entertainment and communication.

The new Programmable Droplets technology is designed to enable users to digitally program water droplets, taken from our everyday environment, and manipulate them via a computer interface.

The project is being led by researcher Udayan Umapathi and professor Hiroshi Ishii from the university’s Tangible Media Group.

They hope the new technology will demonstrate the potential for water as an interactive medium for creativity, art, entertainment and communication, to better connect people to their physical environment.
