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)


Pictures
