Sixth Sense computer/world interface


This has been recognized as a totally mind-blowing breakthrough idea by websites, magazines, and other technology people. Sixth Sense is a technology made and developed by Pranav Mistry at MIT, with help from his professor Pattie Maes.

It is a camera/projector combination that projects images on objects in the world and senses finger positions and gestures. Currently the fingers are sensed with colored tape or marker tips. This allows for interesting interaction with the digital and physical world. The best way to find out more is to watch the videos.

Demonstration of what Sixth Sense can do.

A more detailed video of Pranav Mistry and his work on interfaces, specifically building up to Sixth Sense.
