Advantages and Disadvantages
Sixth Sense is a tool that connects the physical world with
the world of data.
The Sixth Sense covers the phenomenon of:
3. Retro Cognition
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.
The hardware components are coupled in a pendant like
mobile wearable device.
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
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
• The usage of the mirror is significant as the projector dangles pointing downwards
from the neck
• A web-enabled Smart phone in the user’s pocket processes the video data
• Other software searches the web and interprets the hand gestures
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
