Caption: SixthSense wearable computer display. Digital image of a number pad projected onto the palm of a hand from the SixthSense wearable computer. This system, invented by electronic engineer Pranav Mistry, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, 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.
