Imagine a piece of furniture you can remotely reconfigure with an app. Imagine a sofa that reacts and autonomously adjust its shape when you get close to it. Imagine a seating system that can change form in infinite numbers of ways -- and seamlessly turn into a bed, a chaise longue, a group of armchairs, or a playground for kids.

All of this is Lift-Bit, a project designed by Carlo Ratti Associati together with Opendot fab lab.

Lift-Bit is currently available for pre-order.
