The Sixth Sense is a device that will give us the power to do things that we could have never imagined would be possible. Its main purpose is to connect our physical interactions with the digital world. Gestures made by your fingertips are used to connect with anything and everything on the internet. The Sixth Sense has a small projector, a camera, and a mirror that hang around your neck. The caps worn around your fingertips allow interaction with all of the components and the digital world. It costs about $350 to make one of these incredible devices. I wonder just how much it will cost to purchase one. This product is still in production but it is already getting a lot of publicity. Fox news even featured a story about it.
To list each and every capability of The Sixth Sense would take quite a while so I will just share some of them. You can take pictures, watch videos, play games, check ratings and reviews of books, determine which brand of a certain product would be the best purchase, use it as a phone on any surface, and even draw a circle where a watch would be on your wrist and see the time appear. Basically, anything you can imagine can be done with The Sixth Sense. Imagine being able to look at someone and have details about them projected onto their body. The camera picks up the image of the person and retrieves information about them from the internet. Think about this next time you meet someone new. On your way to the airport you can easily check the status of your flight. The camera picks up the image of your boarding pass and the projector tells you whether or not your flight is delayed or if the gate has changed. With this device the possibilities are truly endless!
