Are You Ready for The Sixth Sense?

The future is most definitely here. If you can spare 8 minutes, you gotta see this to believe it! A Sixth Sense is "a sense that would give us seamless access and easy access to meta information or information that exists somewhere that may be relevant to help us make the right decision about whatever it is that we are coming across". Like shopping, needing to take a picture, checking the time - all anywhere anytime.

This demo -- from Pattie Maes' lab at MIT, spearheaded by Pranav Mistry -- was the buzz of TED. It's a wearable device with a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. Imagine "Minority Report" and then some.
