- Pranav Mistry who could revolutionize the way we interact with digital information... and best of all he's offering the code - open & free.
A student of the famed MIT, USA where only the very very best reach, Mistry has come up with 'SixthSense', 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.
By using a camera and a tiny projector mounted in a pendant like wearable device, 'SixthSense' sees what you see and visually augments any surfaces or objects we are interacting with. It projects information onto surfaces, walls, and physical objects around us, and lets us interact with the projected information through natural hand gestures, arm movements, or our interaction with the object itself.
You really need to see this to believe !
Pranav then did Masters in Design from Industrial Design Center, IIT Mumbai.
before pursuing his career as a PhD scholar in the Fluid Interfaces Group at MIT's Media Lab,
and was in fact associated and worked with Microsoft as a UX researcher.
We all salute you Pranav !!!
