Transcript of "Sixth Sense Technology"

  1. 1. Sixth Sense Technology
  2. 2. CONTENTS • • • • • • INTRODUCTION REQUIREMENTS WORKING APPLICATIONS ADVANTAGES & LIMITATIONS CONCLUSION
  3. 3. SIXTHSENSE TECHNOLOGY • 'SixthSense' is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world around us with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information.
  4. 4. INTRODUCTION •This technology was developed by Pranav Mistry. •Sixth sense is a wearable gestural interface device. •It is named sixth sense as it recognizes objects around us and give information about them.
  5. 5. Sixth Sense technology is the science of tomorrow with the aim of connecting the digital world with the physical world seamlessly, eliminating hardware devices The 5 senses Here comes the sixth sense
  6. 6. About Pranav Mistry • Born in 14 May 1981 at Palanpur, Gujarat, India • Now is the head of Think Tank Team(TTT) and Vice president of Research at Samsung • He is best known for his work on SixthSense and Samsung Galaxy Gear.
  7. 7. REQUIREMENTS • • • • • Mirror Wearable Camera Pocket Projector Internet enabled Smart phone Colored markers
  8. 8. Wearable camera •It captures an object in view and tracks the user’s hand gestures. •It acts like a digital eye, connecting you to the world of digital information. Pocket projector •It Projects visual information & enables surfaces, walls and physical objects to be used as interfaces. •It displays data sent from smart phone on any surface in view.
  9. 9. Smart phone • As the smart phone is open sourced. • The software searches the web and interprets the hand gestures. Color markers • They help the camera to recognize the hand gestures. • The movements and arrangements of these markers are interpreted and they act as instructions for the projected application interfaces.
  10. 10. Working Capture Images Gestures To process the video sequence Send info Vision Project image Info on surface
  11. 11. Vision based gesture recognition • Involves hand shape, position, and movement. • Software's used in processing are Java,.net,SYMBIAN. • It is done through following steps: • Image capturing • Finger tip detection • Feature extraction • tracking
  12. 12. Fingertip detection Threshold image Detecting finger tips
  13. 13. Feature extraction 1)Circles and ellipses extracted from an image of a hand. 2) Selected image features corresponding to the palm, the fingers and the finger tips of a hand. 3) The selected image features capture the essential structure of a hand.
  14. 14. Tracking hand Size variations rotations State change
  15. 15. Interaction based direct manipulation and symbolic gestures No of fingers Operating mode selector Operating mode location Tracking result Application controller for direct manipulation Application Gesture mode selector Size & location of the gesture trajectory Application controller for symbolic gesture Kind of gesture Symbolic gesture recognizer
  16. 16. APPLICATIONS
  17. 17. Call making • You can use the Sixth Sense to project a keypad onto your hand, then use that virtual keypad to make a call.
  18. 18. Maps • With the map application we can call up the map of our choice and then use thumbs and index fingers to navigate the map
  19. 19. Check the time • Draw a circle on your wrist to get a virtual watch that gives you the correct time
  20. 20. Enhanced news reading • Sixth Sense can be programmed to project related videos onto newspaper articles you are reading
  21. 21. Drawing application • The drawing application lets the user draw on any surface by tracking the fingertip movements of the user’s index finger
  22. 22. Zooming features • The user can zoom in or zoom out using hand movements
  23. 23. Get product information • Sixth Sense uses image recognition or marker technology to recognize products we pick up, then feeds us information on those products
  24. 24. Get book information • The system can project Amazon ratings on that book, as well as reviews and other relevant information
  25. 25. Take pictures If you fashion your index fingers and thumbs into a square ("framing" gesture), the system will snap a photo. After taking the desired number of photos, we can project them onto a surface, and use gestures to sort through the photos, and organize and resize them.
