Interested in knowing your sixth sense?
28-year-old Pranav Mistry has developed a digital prototype called the “sixth sense“, a wearable hi-tech device that can turn anything into a touchscreen. The wrist can become a watch and palm as a phone. The device is a combination of a wearable camera, a projector and a mirror where the camera recognizes the movements of the fingers of your hand and translates those into commands. For instance, when you pick up a product at a grocery store, the device can wirelessly search for comparative prices, degrees of recyclability, etc. You pick up a book at a store and the device can search and display reader reviews and ratings. You can make the familiar gesture that cinematographers and photographers do-of making a frame with both your hands—and click a photograph. Mistry (and his mentor Pattie Maes of the MIT Media Lab) demonstrated the “sixth sense” last month at T.E.D. Watch the video to see just how amazing this new technology is. Courtesy -
