Sixth Sense Technology

Working Of Sixth Sense Technology

The hardware components are coupled in a pendant like mobile wearable device. Camera - Projector - Mirror - Mobile Component - Color Markers

A webcam captures and recognizes an object in view and tracks the user’s hand gestures using computer-vision based techniques. It sends the data to the smart phone. The camera, in a sense, acts as a digital eye, seeing what the user sees. It also tracks the movements of the thumbs and index fingers of both of the user's hands. The camera recognizes objects around you instantly, with the micro projector overlaying the information on any surface, including the object itself or your hand.

Also, a projector opens up interaction and sharing. The project itself contains a battery inside, with 3 hours of battery life. The projector projects visual information enabling surfaces, walls and physical objects around us to be used as interfaces. We want this thing to merge with the physical world in a real physical sense. You are touching that object and projecting info onto that object. The information will look like it is part of the object. A tiny LED projector displays data sent from the smart phone on any surface in view object, wall, or person.

Working Of Sixth Sense Technology

  Mirror

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

Mobile Component

The mobile devices like Smartphone in our pockets transmit and receive voice and data anywhere and to anyone via the mobile internet. An accompanying Smartphone runs the SixthSense software, and handles the connection to the internet. A Web-enabled smart phone in the user’s pocket processes the video data. Other software searches the Web and interprets the hand gestures.
