Sixth Sense : Invetion that Might Change the world

I can Proudly say that here is an Indian Student at MIT describing his invention of the “Sixth Sense” its worth watching and i can see that our future is Bright and its not far from us using a Wall as a computer and browsing on a piece of paper or playing NFS..

Pranav Mistry is the inventor of SixthSense, a wearable device that enables new interactions between the real world and the world of data.

At TEDIndia, he demos several tools that help the physical world interact with the world of data — including a deep look at his SixthSense device and a new, paradigm-shifting paper “laptop.” In an onstage Q&A, Mistry says he’ll open-source the software behind SixthSense, to open its possibilities to all.

Pranav Mistry is a PhD student in the Fluid Interfaces Group at MIT’s Media Lab. Before his studies at MIT, he worked with Microsoft as a UX researcher; he’s a graduate of IIT. Mistry is passionate about integrating the digital informational experience with our real-world interactions.

Some previous projects from Mistry’s work at MIT includes intelligent sticky notes, Quickies, that can be searched and can send reminders; a pen that draws in 3D; and TaPuMa, a tangible public map that can act as Google of physical world. His research interests also include Gestural and Tangible Interaction, Ubiquitous Computing, AI, Machine Vision, Collective Intelligence and Robotics.
