sixthsense overview
SixthSense Overview
  • Developed by Pranav Mistry
    • Research assistant/PhD candidate MIT
  • Portable device that is worn around neck
  • Consists of:
    • Camera
    • Colored Markers
    • Projector
    • *a smart phone
components
Components
  • Camera: tracks the movement of the colored markers using movement algorithms.
  • Colored Markers: Red, blue, green, and yellow tape worn on the users fingertips for tracking purposes.
  • Projector: Projects stored data onto most any surface.
  • Smart phone: needed for internet connection and computing power
capabilities
Capabilities
  • Recognizes hand movements
  • Examples from online demonstrations:
    • Make frame with hands: camera takes picture
    • Google map onto wall
    • Draw circle on wrist: projects digital clock
    • Movement of text book/web info onto page
    • Airline ticket updates
    • Draw @ symbol: check email for you
    • Many more capabilities (it’s on youtube or TED website)
benefits
Benefits
  • Cost: ~300$
    • Software will be open source
  • Many possible medical applications using the technology
    • Surgical procedures (using tracking capabilities)
    • Rehabilitation techniques
