SixthSense technology

As mentioned in previous postings, the video presentations on the TED website are a great resource for ideas and inspiration. The presentations are given by the world’s leading thinkers and doers at the TED conference each year. The presentation by Pranav Mistry, the inventor of SixthSense technology, is definitely worth checking out. Mistry has developed a wearable device that enables interactions between the real world and the world of data. When the device is worn and a user interacts with a physical object, the device will project information about the object onto it. For example, live video can be projected onto a paper newspaper or book reviews can appear on a paper book. The technology even enables a “paper laptop.” You really have to watch the video to believe it!
