PowerPoint Presentation: Shravanthi by SIXTH SENSE TECHNOLOGY Wear Your World Agenda: Agenda Introduction History Components Working Advantages Applications Conclusion PowerPoint Presentation: Introduction Sixth Sense is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world around us with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information. It was developed by Pranav Mistry, a PhD student in the Fluid Interfaces Group at the MIT Media Lab. Sixth Sense bridges the gap by bringing intangible, digital information out into the tangible world, and allowing us to interact with this information via natural hand Sixth Sense comprises a pocket projector, a mirror and a camera. The hardware components are coupled in a pendant like mobile wearable device PowerPoint Presentation: Camera Projector Mirror Mobile components Colour markers Components Camera: Camera Captures an object in view and tracks the user’s hand gestures It sends the data to smart phone It acts as a digital eye, connecting you to the world of digital information Projector: Projector The projector projects visual information enabling surfaces and physical objects to be used as interfaces The project itself contains a battery inside, with 3 hours of battery life. A tiny LED projector displays data sent from the smart phone on any surface in view–object, wall, or person. PowerPoint Presentation: The usage of the mirror is significant as the projector dangles pointing downwards from the neck. A Web-enabled smart phone in the user’s pocket processes the video data Other software searches the Web and interprets the hand gestures Smart Phone Mirror Colored Markers: Colored Markers It is at the tip of the user’s fingers . Marking the user’s fingers with red, yellow, green, and blue tape helps the webcam recognize gestures The movements and arrangements of these makers are interpreted into gestures that act as interaction instructions for the projected application interfaces . How does it work?: How does it work? : The hardware that makes Sixth Sense work is a pendant like mobile wearable interface. It has a camera, a mirror and a projector and is connected wirelessly to a bluetooth smart phone that can slip comfortably into one’s pocket. The camera recognizes individuals, images, pictures, gestures one makes with their hands. Information is sent to the Smartphone for processing. The downward-facing projector projects the output image on to the mirror. Mirror reflects image on to the desired surface. Thus , digital information is freed from its confines and placed in the physical world.

Advantages: Advantages SixthSense is an user friendly interface which integrates digital information into the physical world and its objects, making the entire world your computer. SixthSense does not change human habits but causes computer and other machines to adapt to human needs. It uses hand gestures to interact with digital information. Supports multi-touch and multi-user interaction Data access directly from machine in real time It is an open source and cost effective and we can mind map the idea anywhere It is gesture-controlled wearable computing device that feeds our relevant information and turns any surface into an interactive display. It is portable and easy to carry as we can wear it in our neck. The device could be used by anyone without even a basic knowledge of a keyboard or mouse. There is no need to carry a camera anymore. If we are going for a holiday, then from now on wards it will be easy to capture photos by using mere fingers Future Enhancements: Future Enhancements To get rid of color markers To incorporate camera and projector inside mobile computing device. Applying this technology in various interest like gaming, education systems, army field etc. To have 3D gesture tracking. To make sixth sense work as fifth sense for disabled person. Conclusion: Conclusion The key here is that Sixth Sense recognizes the objects around you, displaying information automatically and letting you access it in any way you want, in the simplest way possible . If they can get rid of the colored finger caps and it ever goes beyond the initial development phase. Sixth sense prototype implements several applications that demonstrate usefulness, viability and flexibility of the system. In simple, it is almost like installing a digital system (computer) into our body and further making it as sixth sense of our body References: References www.blendernation.com/sixth-sense-technology/ http :// boingboing.net/2009/11/12/sixth-sense-technolo.html http :// gizmodo.com/5167790/sixth-sense-technology-may-change-how-we-lookat-the-world-forever/ http ://theviewspaper.net/sixth-sense-technology-will-revolutionize-the-world / http :// lucasrichter.wordpress.com/2009/03/13/pattie-maes-sixth-sensetechnology-whats-stopping-this/ www.pranavmistry.com/ PowerPoint Presentation: Queries ?
