Sixth sense from MIT labs

leave a comment »


I was totally amazed by watching this super cool video about the latest technological invention by a PhD candidate from MIT. Pranav Mistry [1] is the genius behind Sixth Sense, a wearable device that enables new interactions between the real world and the world of data.

This demo — from Pattie Maes’ lab at MIT, spearheaded by Pranav Mistry — was the buzz of TED [2]. It’s a wearable device with a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. Imagine “Minority Report” [3] and then some.
