Pranav Mistry and Sixth Sense

Some days back when i was surfing through The Hindu website... I came to know about this whizkid... by the moment he admired me...

Pranav Mistry, he is the inventor of SixthSense, a wearable device that enables new interactions between the real world and the world of data.
The Indian genius doing PhD in Fluid Interface Group at MIT's Media Lab.
Worked as a UX Reasearcher with Microsoft, did his Masters in Media Arts and Science from MIT, Master of Design from IIT Bombay, Bachelor degree in Computer science and Engineering

He was passionate about integrating the digital informational experience with our real-world interactions. His latest invention is awesome, a revolutionary path breaking technology which make us addict in future. And u know he announced that he would open source his project in less than a month...

In future it could read books for blind people,
Deaf people having subtitles in front of them,
Generated from speech-to-text and face recognition
Fascinating! to think of how this technology could open the possibilities for those with communication challenges

Just check out the video below, he is explaining about his technology at TED (Technology, Entertainment and Development)conference in India and you too fall for his invention
