Tom Cruise's use of virtual gestures in Minority Report is closer than you think . . . Pranav Mistry showcases one of the best technologies we've ever seen on a TED talk. The potential of SixthSense technology is very cost effective and will change the world we live in - Seemless access to all the information we use from our device filled pockets.
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.
