Sixth Sense -The Next Step In Communications

I saw this device on the TED website recently and felt as technologists we should be aware of it. For those of you not familiar with TED, TED is a small nonprofit organization devoted to ideas worth spreading. It started in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.

Take a look at the TED website for further details about the organization. http://www.ted.com

The Sixth Sense was demoed by the  Pattie Maes’ lab at MIT, spearheaded by Pranav Mistry.  The Sixth Sense is  a wearable device with a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. Imagine “Minority Report” and then some. In the next few years this might be the next big wave in personal communication technology. Take a look at this video to see the device in action. Pretty amazing…
