Gentle Linkers,

This is well worth a 13 minute view (from TED) on a hot and lazy Friday. The
inventor is a budding (or perhaps mature) genius.




Pranav Mistry: The thrilling potential of 'SixthSense' technology

  "At TEDIndia, Pranav Mistry demos several tools that help the physical
   world interact with the world of data -- including a deep look at his
   SixthSense device and a new, paradigm-shifting paper "laptop".

   In an onstage Q&A, Mistry says he'll open-source the software behind
   SixthSense, to open its possibilities to all."

It appears that Mistry might be snatching surface computing from Mickeysoft,
giving it a major makeover and taking us to the next level in HCI.

Before you ask "where's the camera?", it is hanging around his neck.
