MIT "Sixth Sense"

The genius students at MIT Media Lab have created a wearable computer that can turn almost any object into an interactive display. Dubbed the “Sixth Sense” this prototype machine uses a cell phone to connect it to the internet which is attached to a webcam and a battery powered 3M projector and a mirror. The video shows how the student Pranav Mistry uses color coded finger tips to control the computer via hand gestures. Watch as he draws a clock on his wrist to bring up the time, check the flight status on his plane ticket, and even see star ratings on books he picks up. The possibilities of this amazing technology are endless. Being able to interact with tangible objects is going to change the way we use and think about computers in the future.
