Sixth sense technology

  1. 1. Presented by: A.AKHIL
  2. 2. Contents Introduction  Origin Components Working Applications Cost and availability Advantages and Disadvantages Conclusion
  3. 3. Introduction:- Sixth Sense is a tool that connects the physical world with the world of data. The Sixth Sense covers the phenomenon of: 1. Telepathy 2. Precognition 3. Retro Cognition 4. psychometric
  4. 4. Origin:-  The sixth sense technology was developed by Pranav Mistry at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  He has been awarded 2009 invention award by Popular science.  They created a device that can turn any surface into a touch-screen for computer, controlled by simple hand gestures.
  5. 5. Components:- The hardware components are coupled in a pendant like mobile wearable device. Camera Projector Mirror Mobile components Colored Markers
  6. 6. CAMERA  Captures an object in view and tracks the user’s hand gestures It sends the data to Smart Phone It acts as a digital eye, connecting you to the world of digital information
  7. 7. PROJECTOR The projector projects visual information enabling surfaces and physical objects to be used as interfaces  The project itself contains a battery inside, with 3 hours of battery life  A tiny LED projector displays data sent from the smart phone on any surface in view-object,wall or person
  8. 8. MIRROR MIRROR • The usage of the mirror is significant as the projector dangles pointing downwards from the neck SMART PHONE • A web-enabled Smart phone in the user’s pocket processes the video data • Other software searches the web and interprets the hand gestures
  9. 9. COLOR MARKERS  It is at the tip of the user’s fingers Marking the user’s fingers with red,yellow,green and blue taps helps the webcam recognize gestures  The movements and arrangements of these makers are interpreted into gestures that acts a interaction instructions for the projected application interface
  10. 10. Images Pictures gestures captureSend for process Send information Project image Reflect on desired surface Info on surface HOW IT WORKS?
  11. 11. Applications:- The Software recognises some kinds of gestures like:  Freehand gestures  Framing gestures  Iconic gestures
  12. 12. Cost and Availability oThe device can be made in current prototype system costs approximately $350 to build. oIn Indian currency 17000Rs o Sixth sense hardware and software at present works with semaphores o The software’s source code will be available on an open source model. AS THE STATEMENT OF ITS MAKER
  13. 13. Advantages:- It is so light ,small and simple to use  We can accesses our work from any place.  We can take photos and organize them on any floor.  Read books easily
  14. 14. Disadvantages:-  The projector runs on batteries for power where regularly have to replace.  we have to give correct instructions .
  15. 15. Conclusion  Sixth Sense is a wearable hi-tech device.  The Sixth sense prototype implements several applications that demonstrates the usefulness, valiability and flexibility of the system  This technology makes the world @ your fingertips. It is your third eye, your digital eye, connecting you to the world of digital information.
