Drones dropping books, interactive TV, Banksy's $60 art and more in our weekly look at the web

Any look into the brilliance that’s happening day-to-day at MIT’s Media Lab is a welcome one, and their latest offering is an exciting video about the researchers making the next wave of technology that will allow us to remotely manipulate information. At face value, expert user interface designer Hiroshi Ishii’s new 3D motion sensor project is nothing short of amazing. The motions and spacial differential of an object are represented in real time by a 3D model: Wave your hands across the sensor, and a real wave crosses the 3D space.
