Caption: SixthSense wearable computer. Pranav Mistry, electronic engineer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, operating his invention, the SixthSense wearable computer. This system allows the wearer to project digital information onto any surface and navigate the screen using hand gestures. It consists of a webcam and LED projector that hangs as a pendant from the neck and a smart mobile phone worn on the hip. Colour coded tags on the fingers allow the webcam to track hand and finger movements. It then sends wireless signals to the smartphone, which contains the SixthSense software, and translates the hand gestures into computer commands. Photographed in 2009.
