Current 3D modeling tools do not provide any physical means of interaction for creating hybrid design forms. This project is focused on extending and transforming the physical world in a digital space by bringing everyday objects into the virtual world using a 3D scanner. Vmorph creates 3D metamorphosed version of objects with different shapes and affordances having the physical distance among the objects as the weight to metamorphosis.

Below is a quick demo video of Vmorph. Physically changing the position of the object relative to another one triggers metamorphosis of the two differently shaped object. Distance between them determine the amount morphed.
