  1. west godavari institute of science and engineering Department of ELECTONICS & COMMUNICATION SEMINAR ON :- SIXTH SENSE TECHNOLOGY Presented by Ch.Sivambica S.L.D.Deepti
  2. INTRODUCTION Sixth sense is a gesture based wearable computer system developed at MIT media lab by Stevemann in 1994 and 1997 developed the headworn gestural interface. In 1998 neckworn version was further developed by pranav mistry and in 2009 both of whom developed both hardware and software for both neckworn and headworn versions of it.Sixth sense is a name for extra information supplied by a wearable computer, such as the device called Eyetap (mann), Telepointer(mann) and “WuW” by pranav mistry.
  3. What is sixth sense?  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.  Subsequently, other inventors have used the term sixth sense technology to describe new capabilities that augment the traditional five human senses.  In 2012-20013 patent applications, timo platt refer to their new communications invention as creating a new social and personal sense, i.e., a “Metaphorical sixth sense”, enabling users to sense and share the “stories” and other attributes and information of those around them.
  5. WORKING The sixth sense technology contains a pocket projector, and a camera contained in a head mounted, hand held or pendant –like, wearable device. Both the projector and the camera are connected to a mobile computing device in users pocket. The projector projects visual information enabling surfaces, walls and physical objects around us to be used as interfaces.  The camera recognizes and tracks users hand gestures and physical objects using computer-vision based techniques.
  6. COLOUR MARKERS  It is at the tip of the user’s fingers.  Marking the user’s fingers with red, yellow, green, blue tape help the web cam recognize the gestures  The movement and arrangement of these makers are interpreted into gestures that act as interaction instructions for the projected application interfaces
  7. WORKING The camera tracks the location of the colour markers at the tips of the users fingers. The movements and arrangements of these fiducials are interpreted into gestures that act as interaction instructions for the projected application interfaces. The user attaches coloured tape to his or her finger tips, of a colour distinct from the background, the software can track the position of those fingers.
  8. APPLICATIONS In 2009 TED talk given by Pattie Maes was included some applications on sixth sense technology, those applications include:  Taking pictures  Gets book information  Get flight updates  Make a call  Drawing application  Check the time
  9. ADVANTAGES Portable Cost effective Data access directly from the machines in real time Open source software
  10. DISADVANTAGES The product is not yet released into the market. There are no legal obligations as of now, because there are some modifications still being made on the product itself. There are some security concerns about this product. This is invading others privacy which can be a huge problem.
