What is sixth sense?? Sixth sense is a wearable gestural interface that enhances The physical world around us With digital information and Lets us use natural hand Gestures to interact with that information.

Slide 6:

It is based on the concept of augmented reality and has well implemented the perceptions of it.


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. SixthSense bridges the gap by bringing intangible, digital information out into the tangible world, and allowing us to interact with this information via natural hand SixthSense comprises a pocket projector, a mirror and a camera. The hardware components are coupled in a pendant like mobile wearable device

Camera M irror Smart Phone Colored Markers Projector COMPONENTS The hardware components are coupled in a pendant like mobile wearable device.

Slide 11:

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

Slide 12:

Projector The projector projects visual information enabling surfaces and physical objects to be used as interfaces The projector 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.

Smart phone :

Smart phone A Web-enabled smart phone in the user’s pocket processes the video data Other software searches the Web and interprets the hand gestures

Mirror :

Mirror The usage of the mirror is significant as the projector hang loosely pointing downwards from the neck.

Slide 15:

Color 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 markers are interpreted into gestures that act as interaction instructions for the projected application interfaces.

Slide 16:

HOW IT WORKS? Images Pictures Gestures Info on surface capture Send for processing Reflect on desired surface Project image Send Info

Slide 17:

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 Cont…

Slide 19:

Take pictures If you fashion your index fingers and thumbs into a square ("framing" gesture), the system will snap a photo. After taking the desired number of photos, we can project them onto a surface, and use gestures to sort through the photos, and organize and resize them.

Slide 20:

Get flight updates The system will recognize your boarding pass and let you know whether your flight is on time and if the gate has changed. Feed information on people The system will project relevant information about a person such as what they do, where they work, and so on.

Slide 21:

Make a call You can use the Sixth Sense to project a keypad onto your hand, then use that virtual keypad to make a call . Call up a map With the map application we can call up the map of our choice and then use thumbs and index fingers to navigate the map

Slide 22:

Check the time Draw a circle on your wrist to get a virtual watch that gives you the correct time Create multimedia reading experiences Sixth Sense can be programmed to project related videos onto newspaper articles you are reading

Slide 23:

Drawing application The drawing application lets the user draw on any surface by tracking the fingertip movements of the user’s index finger. Zooming features The user can zoom in or zoom out using hand movements.

Slide 24:

Get product information Sixth Sense uses image recognition or marker technology to recognize products we pick up, then feeds us information on those products Get book information The system can project Amazon ratings on that book, as well as reviews and other relevant information

Slide 25:

ADVANTAGES Portable .. Connectedness between world and information. Cost effective. Data access directly from machine in r real time. Mind map the idea anywhere. It is an open source . Supports multi-touch and multi-user interaction .

Limitations :

Limitations Hardware limitations of the devices, that we currently carry around with us. M any phones will not allow the external camera feed to be manipulated in real time. Post processing can occur however.

Slide 27:

Sixth Sense recognizes the objects around us, displaying information automatically and letting us to access it in any way we need The Sixth Sense prototype implements several applications that demonstrate the usefulness, viability and flexibility of the system Allowing us to interact with this information via natural hand gestures The potential of becoming the ultimate "transparent" user interface for accessing information about everything around us CONCLUSION
