Unveiling the “Sixth Sense,” game-changing wearable tech

It makes me happy to know people like them are out there, being smart and creative, and bringing technology and people together. Obviously this is still a work in progress- I am sure they don't mean to always project information out in the open and ignore privacy concerns- but it's a taste of what may be coming, hopefully this decade.

This demo — from Pattie Maes' lab at MIT, spearheaded by Pranav Mistry — was the buzz of TED. It's a wearable device with a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. Imagine "Minority Report" and then some. At the MIT Media Lab's new Fluid Interfaces Group, Pattie Maes researches the tools we use to work with information and connect with one another. Pranav Mistry is the genius behind Sixth Sense, a wearable device that enables new interactions between the real world and the world of data.
