Agenda Introduction Why sixth sense The basic 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. 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

The basics…:

The basics… Sixth Sense allows people to use the internet without a screen or a keyboard It can turn any surface into a touch screen It is made with store-bought components

PowerPoint Presentation:

Camera Projector Mirror Mobile components Color markers Components


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 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.

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

PowerPoint Presentation:

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

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. Working


Applications Call up a map Check the time Drawing App Multimedia Reading Make a call Student Info

PowerPoint Presentation:

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

PowerPoint Presentation:

CHECK THE TIME Draw a circle on your wrist to get a virtual watch that gives you the correct time WATCH VIDEOS Sixth Sense can be programmed to project related videos onto newspaper articles you are reading

PowerPoint Presentation:

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

PowerPoint Presentation:

GET FLIGHT UPDATE S The system will recognize your boarding pass and let you know whether your flight is on time and if the gate has changed. PEOPLE INFORMATION The system will project relevant information about a person such as what they do, where they work, and so on.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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 intuitive hand movements.

PowerPoint Presentation:

TAKE PICTURES If you fashion your index fingers and thumbs into a square ("framing" gesture) , the system will snap a photo. ORGANIZE PHOTOS 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.


Advantages SixthSense is an user friendly interface which integrates digital information into the physical world and its objects, making the entire world your computer . It uses hand gestures to interact with digital information. Supports multi-touch and multi-user interaction.

Cost of Sixth Sense:

Cost of Sixth Sense $350 dollars The interesting thing here is that Sixth Sense can never really be more expensive than its individual components

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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

CONCLUSION 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
