SixthSense bridges digital and physical world

Pranav Mistry, a PhD student in the Fluid Interfaces Group at MIT’s Media Lab, shows different tools that will help us connect the physical world with the digital world. The premise of this technology is quite simple but bringing it to reality and daily usage will take some time.

According to Mistry, the main challenge is “how our knowledge about everyday objects and gestures, and how we use these objects, can be leveraged to our interactions with the digital world. Rather than using a keyboard and mouse, why can I not use my computer in the same way that I interact in the physical world?”

Imagine…life will be really interesting if we can marry these two worlds.
