There’s a great new user interface technology that literally lets you dance to make a 3D design.  The technology is called Shape-It-Up and uses a Kinect camera to allow the user to interact with 3D objects.  It was created by the Purdue C Design Lab.  They’re now collaborating with the company ZeroUI to look at commercial applications.  ZeroUI specializes in gesture-based interfaces.  Here’s a great video of Shape-It-Up in action.
