Future Scope of Sixth Sense Technology
Sixth Sense Technology is an interface by gesture that connects the physical world around us by the help of digital information. The Sixth Sense Technology works by projecting the information onto surfaces, walls and physical objects around us by grasping our arm movements, hand gestures and our interaction with the object. The device searches the relevant information to the situation in the internet. The projector will display the related information or content on anything like a wall or a paper or a newspaper.
Pranav Mistry, an Indian computer scientist, was awarded for his research on sixth sense. He was awarded the 2009 Invention Award. For his research he honoured a lot. Let us see some of the Advantages of Sixth Sense Technology:
THE DEVICE IS PORTABLE:
Now-a-days most of the devices are arriving considering to the human comforts. In the same way the Sixth Sense Technology Devices also includes the comfortless.
- It is portable, it is small in size and it is easy to carry and also it very less weight. In giving importance to portability, the prototype is designed. The user can carry the smart phone with their pocket itself.
This is one of the main advantages of the Sixth Sense Devices.
MULTI TOUCH AND MULTI USER INTERACTION:
In general Multi touch means Multi sensing technique. This technique allows the user to interact with the device by using more than one finger at a time. This is additional feature of the sixth sense devices.
- It is also useful for the interactive table tops and walls – large interaction scenarios.
The construction cost of the sixth sense prototype is quiet low. Since the parts of the devices are made by collecting the parts the common devices we are using.
The cost is estimated upto $300.Moreover, the device is not only made for the commercial purpose. Eventhough if it happens means the device will cost low comparing to the current price.
FORMING CONNECTION BETWEEN REALWORLD AND DIGITAL WORLD
The main aim of the sixth sense technology is maintaining the connection between the realworld and the digital world. It maintains the connection by keeping interaction with the user.
REAL TIME DATA ACCESS DIRECTLY FROM THE MACHINES
Using the sixth sense technology the user can access the data from any machine at real time speed.
It is very user friendly; the user can access the data without including any interfaces.
We need not require a keyboard or a mouse for text user interface or graphical user interface.
- The device can simply access the data by recognition of hand gestures.
The sixth sense technology reduces the use of platform or a screen to analyze. Just it it works with the human gestures. With the help of projector (Cigarette box size) we can interact with the device. It projects the information or content in any surface as mentioned.
- To check the emails just draw in air with your fingers.
- To click a photograph just makes a frame with your fingers.
SOFTWARE IS MADE OPEN SOURCE
The software used to interact with the device is made open source. It is available to the public at free of cost. Anybody can use the software to develop and enhance.
By this advantage, any other developers can contribute to the development of the system.
- The prototype used for the device demonstrates the usefukness, viability and flexibility of the system.
