Sixth Sense Technology


Published on

It’s the beginning of a new era of technology where engineering will reach new milestones. Just like in the science fiction movies where display of computer screen appears on walls, commands are given by gestures, the smart digital environment which talks to us to do our work and so on, these all will be possible very soon.

  2. 2. Introduction  SixthSense is a wearable gestural interface that enhances the physical world around us with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information.  SixthSense technology has integrated the real world objects with digital world.  It associates technologies like hand gesture recognition, image capturing, processing, and manipulation, etc.  It superimposes the digital world on the real world.
  3. 3. Pranav Mistry  Pranav Mistry is an Indian computer scientist and inventor of SixthSense Technology. Alma mater  Nirma Institute of Technology(B.Tech.)  IIT Bombay(M.Des.)  MIT Media Lab(PhD) Doctoral advisor  Pattie Maes Known for Inventor of  SixthSense  Mouseless  SPARSH  TeleTouch  Samsung Galaxy GEAR

  7. 7. Camera  It tracks the movement of the colored markers using movement algorithms.  The camera recognizes individuals, images, pictures, gestures that user makes with his hand.  The camera then sends this data to a smart phone for processing
  8. 8. Colored Marker  Placed at the tip of users fingers  Red, yellow, green and blue colored tapes  Helps the webcam to recognize the hand gestures  Act as an interaction instruction for the projected application interfaces
  9. 9. Mobile Component  Web enabled smartphone  Process the data send by the camera  Smartphone searches the web and interprets the hand gestures with the help of the colored markers.
  10. 10. Projector  The information that is interpreted through the smartphone can be projected into any surface.  Projects the visual information enabling surfaces and physical objects to be used as interfaces  Consists of batteries which have 3 hours of battery life  The downward facing projector projects the image on to a mirror.
  11. 11. Mirror  The mirror reflects the image on to a desire surface  The downward-facing projector projects the output image on to the mirror  And the mirror reflects this image on to the desired surface.
  12. 12. Working  The object in view in captured by the camera and sends it to webcam for processing.  With the help of the markers, the gestures are identified.  The software program analyses the video data caught by the camera  Tracks down the locations of the colored markers by utilizing single computer vision techniques.  The software recognizes 3 kinds of gestures:  Multitouch gestures  Freehand gestures  Iconic gestures  Then the processed information is projected by the projector onto the mirror which in turn reflects it on the desired surface.

  21. 21. Conclusion  The sixth sense technology provides us with the freedom of interacting with the digital world with hand gestures.  The technology has a wide application in the field of artificial intelligence. This methodology can aid in synthesis of bots that will be able to interact with humans.
