  3. 3. INTRODUCTION Sixth Sense 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. Sixth Sense bridges the gap by bringing intangible, digital information out into the tangible world, and allowing us to interact with this information via natural hand SixthSense comprises a pocket projector, a mirror and a camera. The hardware components are coupled in a pendant like mobile wearable device Page 3
  4. 4. WHY SIXTH SENSE? Page 4
  5. 5. COMPONENTSThe hardware components are coupled in a pendant like mobile wearabledevice. Camera Projector Mirror Mobile Component Color Markers Page 5
  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 Page 6
  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. Page 7
  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 Page 8
  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 tape helps the webcam recognize gestures The movements and arrangements of these makers are interpreted into gestures that act as interaction instructions for the projected application interfaces.

  11. 11. APPLICATIONS Page 11
  12. 12. Make a callYou can use the Sixth Sense to project akeypad onto your hand, then use that virtualkeypad to make a call. Call up a map With the map application we can call upthe map of our choice and then use thumbsand index fingers to navigate the map Page 12
  13. 13. Check the time Draw a circle on your wrist to geta virtual watch that gives you thecorrect timeCreate multimedia reading experiencesSixth Sense can be programmed to projectrelated videos onto newspaper articles youare reading Page 13
  14. 14. Drawing applicationThe drawing application lets the user drawon any surface by tracking the fingertipmovements of the user’s index finger Zooming features The user can zoom in or zoom out using intuitive hand movements Page 14
  15. 15. Get product information Sixth Sense uses image recognition ormarker technology to recognize productswe pick up, then feeds us information onthose products Get book information The system can project Amazon ratings on that book, as well as reviews and other relevant information Page 15
  16. 16. Get flight updates The system will recognize your boarding pass and let you know whether your flight is on time and if the gate has changed. Feed information on people The system will project relevant informationabout a person such as what they do, wherethey work, and so on. Page 16
  17. 17. Take pictures If you fashion your index fingersand thumbs into a square("framing" gesture), the systemwill snap a photo.After taking the desired number ofphotos, we can project them ontoa surface, and use gestures to sortthrough the photos, and organizeand resize them. Page 17
  18. 18. ADVANTAGES Page 18
  19. 19. CONCLUSIONSixth Sense recognizes the objects around us, displaying informationautomatically and letting us to access it in any way we needThe Sixth Sense prototype implements several applications that demonstrate theusefulness, viability and flexibility of the systemAllowing us to interact with this information via natural hand gesturesThe potential of becoming the ultimate "transparent" user interface foraccessing information about everything around us Page 19
