In this modern era with sophisticated technology, a lot of hardware and software have been developed. The most innovative invention is the genius hardware and software of the sixth sense technology by Pranav Mistry from India. This technology makes us fascinated.
Sixth Sense Technology
The sixth sense technology is created by an Indian genius man. He is well known as an engineer at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Pranav has created a device that combines gesture with the world of digital computing. With this technology, we can do anything without using different devices and without in front of the computer.
The first idea of the invention of this technology is how we can still easily doing daily activities without bringing digital devices. The digital devices are such as cameras, mobile phones, or laptops. Sixth sense technology connects online to receive and seek the information continuously. The demonstration by Pranav of the use of the sixth sense technology is such as:
- Making a call only with the palm of the hand without using a mobile phone
- Taking a picture with the fingertips without a camera
- Looking at the book reviews
- Seeing the flight delay on the ticket on a paper
- opening internet access or Google on a piece of paper
- Reading the newspaper with online animations
- Transferring data or texting just by grazing and putting it on a computer monitor
How Sixth Sense Technology Works
Patty Maes, the lecture of Pranav Mistry explained about the way of the device work. It works based on image and character recognition. The main devices that are used by hanging on the chest consist of a webcam, mini projector, mirror, and smartphone. On the tip of the fingertips and thumb of both hands is using colored cap (colored mark) which consists of four different colors (red, green, yellow, and blue).
The camera function is to recognize the images, faces, or text, and the movement of both fingertips and thumbs. The projector is used to display the interface (instead of the monitor) while displaying certain data. The data will be projected onto any media such as the wall, paper, or palm. The smartphone is used for voice communications and data access with the web.
The logo of the sixth sense according to Patty is still a prototype and the cost of manufacture is not more than $ 350. If the mass production’s plan is materialized, so the cost is much cheaper with more simple and futuristic design. This technology is named the sixth sense technology because this device is controlled based on our body movements as if to complete the other five senses.
Recently, the most innovative invention is the genius hardware and software of the sixth sense technology. It is created by Pranav Mistry from India. Therefore with this technology, we can do anything without using different devices and without in front of the computer.
