Sixth Sense!

November 23, 2009 at 6:16 pm 9 comments

Yet another Genius emerged in the world of Technology from India. His name is Pranav Mistry – The inventor of Sixth-sense device, a wearable device that enables new interactions between the real world and the world of data, a device that is worn like a pendant and super­imposes digital information on the physical world.

Unlike previous “augmented reality” systems, it’s in­expensive, off-the-shelf hardware. Two cables connect an LED projector and web-cam to a Web-enabled mobile phone, but the system can easily be made wireless.

1. Camera: A webcam captures an object in view and tracks the user’s hand gestures. It sends the data to the smart phone.

2. Colored Markers: Marking the user’s fingers with red, yellow, green, and blue tape helps the webcam recognize gestures. Mistry is working on gesture-recognition algorithms that could eliminate the need for the markers.

3. Projector: A tiny LED projector displays data sent from the smart phone on any surface in view–object, wall, or person. Mistry hopes to start using laser projectors to increase the brightness.

4. Smart Phone: A Web-enabled smart phone in the user’s pocket processes the video data, using vision algorithms to identify the object. Other software searches the Web and interprets the hand gestures.

Here is a video which explores this technology:

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
