I heard of Pranav Mistry, 28 in September 09 MIT Technology Review magazine, when his innovation ‘Sixth Sense’ was rated among the ‘Top 35 innovations under 35’ by MIT. The device ‘Sixth Sense’ allows user to retrieve information in real time, on move. It easy to understand the concept behind it. While you are on move and want to access the information, say emails, what you do is just draw symbol ‘@’ in air, which will be first captured by a camera (Powered by Gesture Recognition Software). This captured image by a webcam will be then interpreted by Web enabled Smartphone in user’s pocket using vision algorithm to identify the symbol. Mistry also uses a LED projector, to display the data sent by Smartphone on any surface in view.
