The digital world 'in the real world'


SixthSense is a wearable technology that allows users to interact with the digital world in the real world. It can project interfaces on on to real world objects, such as a wall or your hand and call up relevant information from the internet - such as e-mails, timetables, reviews etc.

The technology is being developed at the Massachussetts Institute of Technology. Pranav Mistry, from MIT, demonstrates the technology in real world environments.
