Vision based input system

“The new technology doesn’t seem to have an official name yet other than being called a vision-based Input Interface. What it allows for is five-finger gesture input on a device like a phone just by using the embedded single-lens camera. Not only that, but it is able to register depth as well as standard 2D movement therefore making it capable of detecting 3D motion input.”


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.”

Basically, Sixth Sense is a mini-projector coupled with a camera and a cellphone—which acts as the computer and your connection to the Cloud, all the information stored on the web. Sixth Sense can also obey hand gestures, like in the infamous Minority Report.
