Latest SixthSense demo features paper "laptop"!


It's here, the thinnest laptop ever, as thin as a piece of paper. Made by SixthSense technology. Well, sort of, it's actually just a projection, kinda cool though.


We’ve already seen MIT researcher Pranav Mistry’s SixthSense projector-based augmented-reality system in some cool demos, but he just gave a TED talk and his latest ideas are the wildest yet. Forget simple projections, he’s moved on to taking photos by just making a box with your fingers, identifying books and products on store shelves and projecting reviews and other information on them, projecting flight schedules on boarding passes, and even a new paper “laptop” concept that works by using a microphone on the paper to sense when you’re touching it. It’s pretty amazing stuff. 

Check out their video with lots of amazing refreshing technology here

    We're really making amazing advances in science.

  9. Seems like sixth sense has developed extremely well. If I remember correctly they've made a small projector you carry around your neck and it acts as a small computer.
    It was super handy, they showed that you can walk in a store, hold a product in front of you, then the computer detects it and projects you even more information. Awesome future here we come!

  19. Wow that is awesome. Maybe these will replace textbooks in universities and grade school some day. It would save a lot of resources. One could simply update their laptop to the newest edition of textbooks.
