Here is all you need to know about the Sixth Sense Technology

SixthSense Technology

similar device in 2012, which
he and Maes and Chang
named "WUW", for Wear yoUr
World.

1998, which he used as one node of the
collaborative Telepointer system

SixthSense is a gesture-based wearable computer system developed at MIT
Media Lab by Steve Mann in 1994 and 1997 (headworn gestural interface), and
1998 (neckworn version), and further developed by Pranav Mistry (also at MIT
Media Lab), in 2009, both of whom developed both hardware and software for
both headworn and neckworn versions of it. It comprises a headworn or neck-
worn pendant that contains both a data projector and camera. Headworn
versions were built at MIT Media Lab in 1997 (by Mann) that combined cameras
and illumination systems for interactive photographic art, and also included
gesture recognition (e.g. finger-tracking using colored tape on the fingers).



1994 prototype of headworn SixthSense gesture-based wearable computing
apparatus invented, designed, built, and worn by Steve Mann, MIT Media Lab.

SixthSense is a name for extra information supplied by a wearable computer,
such as the device called EyeTap (Mann), Telepointer (Mann), and "WuW" (Wear
yoUr World) by Pranav Mistry.

Origin of the name

Sixth Sense technology (a camera combined with a light source) was developed
in 1997 as a headworn device, and in 1998 as a neckworn object, but the Sixth
Sense name for this work was not coined and published until 2001, when Mann
coined the term "Sixth Sense" to describe such devices.

Mann referred to this wearable computing technology as affording a "Synthetic
Synesthesia of the Sixth Sense", believing that wearable computing and digital
information could act in addition to the five traditional senses .Ten years
later, Pattie Maes, also with MIT Media Lab, used the term "Sixth Sense" in this
same context, in a TED talk .
Similarly, other inventors have used the term sixth-sense technology to describe
new capabilities that augment the traditional five human senses. For example, in
U.S. patent no. 9,374,397 , timo platt et als, refer to their new communications
invention as creating a new social and personal sense, i.e., a "metaphorical sixth
sense", enabling users (while retaining their privacy and anonymity) to sense
and share the "stories" and other attributes and information of those around
them.

was that intresting?
