Abstract: All of us are aware of the five basic senses – seeing, feeling, smelling, tasting and hearing. But there is also another sense called the sixth sense. It is basically a connection to something greater than what their physical senses are able to perceive. It would be something super natural. Some might just consider it to be a superstition or something psychological. But the invention of sixth sense technology has completely shocked the world. Although it is not widely known as of now but the time is not far when this technology will change our perception of the world. History: Steve Mann is the father of sixth sense who made a wearable computer in 1990. The Sixth Sense technology was first implemented as the neck worn projector+ camera system. He was a media lab student at that time. There after it was used and implemented by an Indian who is the man has become very famous in the recent pranav mistry. There will be a long future rather than the short period of history for the sixth sense technology. Introduction: Sixth sense is a wearable gestural interface device that augments the physical world with digital information & lets people use natural hand gestures to interact with that information. it was developed by pranav mistry. Components:

A pocket projector,
A mirror,
A camera.
Mobile component

The hardware components are coupled in a pendant-like mobile wearable device. Both the projector and the camera are connected to the mobile computing device in the user’s pocket. The Projector: Projects visual information, enabling surfaces, walls and physical objects around the wearer to be used as interfaces. Mobile component sends information for displaying on surface. The Camera And Hands: Recognizes and tracks the user's hand gestures and physical objects using computer-vision based techniques. The Software Program: Processes the video stream data took by the camera and tracks the locations of the colored...
