At TEDIndia, Pranav Mistry, a Ph.D. student in the Fluid Interfaces Group at MIT’s Media Lab, demoed SixthSense, a device that allows interactions between the physical world and the world of data. Take a moment and watch Mistry’s talk — great stuff.

  1. I linked to the video at my personal site, this morning, Om – giving credit to a certain Mr. Malik.

    The bloody piece is so interesting, my wife was late getting out the door to her own IS gig – we got so involved discussing these uses of technology.

    Thanks much.

  2. I had the distinct pleasure of seeing SixthSense showcased at this year’s MIT EmTech conference. Probably the most inspired (and inspiring) effort that I’ve seen toward taking the web out of devices and into the world at large.

    If anyone is interested, we actually posted our thoughts on SixthSense last night, at Latitude Research’s Life-Connected blog: http://ff.im/-cc0gM

    Thanks, Om, for showcasing a really wonderful technology.

  3. Om,
    First of all , Thanks.
    Its was indeed great stuff.
    The guy is smart and humble.
    Which is the formula for success. I hope the open source will help improvise the technology.
    Please share similar interesting tech videos.

    This is truly the future of portable information, getting away from the device and focusing in on the content, it looks simple (but of course it is not) Thank you Om for the post, Steve.
