Sixth Sense Technologies

I just got a glimpse of technology still being developed that have the potential to change everything. You must see this.

The iPhone and other so-called smart phones let you take internet access with you, but that doesn’t fundamentally change your interaction with your environment. Microsoft’s Surface computers have a new type of interface and interesting applications, but of course those applications are limited to the device. What if you were to move the interface off of the device entirely and into the real world?

Sixth Sense is built out of a webcam and a projector, and it tracks your fingers and your environment on the fly. It’s difficult to explain, but watch this video to the end and just imagine how this could change the way people interact with one another and their environments.
