Pranav Mistry in TED India (Video) – Genius behind 6’th Sense Technology

pranav_mistryTED India Conference held in Infosys Campus, Mysore between 4 – 7’th Nov 2009. There were lot many sessions over here on different subjects. One of them was on 6’th Sense Technology mixing physical world with digital world taken by Pranav Mistry – a well known MIT engineer. He talked about the technology he developed where your gestures can interact with computing world and let you do the stuff without any other input device than your gestures.

As shown in the demo of Sixth Sense technology, you can see how Pranav is making calls using screen on his palm which is a virtual screen. He is drawing pictures, checking videos on newspapers and playing with camera and pictures. This whole presentation shows that new ideas can comes thru your daily work.

According to Pranav,


He is gong to release the open source software for using this platform with some of the well known hardware.

I think this innovation has the potential to change the way we use computers today. It has the potential to make your life more digital without even using too many geeky hardware.
