November 29, 2012, 10:19 AM — If you could never draw a perfect circle without the help of a compass, a new table developed by Japanese researchers may be able to help out.
In the latest video news report from DigInfo News, we see a demonstration of this table, which uses a computer to "control the XY position of a magnet under the surface of the table."
While it still doesn't look as precise as something you'd get with a compass or ruler, the implications for usage with other digital technology is kind of fascinating.
