Technology as our 6th Sense

Pattie Maes from MIT, talks about a technology that can act as our Sixth Sense.

“It’s a wearable device with a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. Imagine “Minority Report” and then some.

I loved the technology in “Minority Report” and seeing it come to life in the near future is quite amazing. Watch the video to see what may be in our lives in the near future.

Original Video is from Ted Talks.

Tech BooksThese are some of my archaic technology books that I bought. Now I just read everything at safari.oreilly.com!

You can also read Safari books on your iphone/ipod touch using the new Safari Bookbag app. I have yet to try it out. I’ll be sure to review it once I do!

Currently, I’m reading The iPhoneâ„¢ Developer’s Cookbook: Building Applications with the iPhone SDK. You can view a list of my tech books at goodreads. I’ll be updating this list soon!

What old tech books do you have lying around?

Augmented Reality is such an amazing technology! I’ve never heard of it before until Cali Lewis did a qik episode on it. Seeing Second Life integrated with physical space just boggles my mind!

Check out this video of Cali where Second Life is overlayed with real physical space.

Many thanks to GeekBrief.TV! :)
