Cool Stuff: SixthSense

This is cool. Its called SixthSense and its a kind of a "roving, interactive internet-equipped interface that gives instant, nearly unlimited information about our surroundings while letting us manipulate information like never before". More after the jump including videos ...

Although it looks annoying when putting it on, its still very cool to have it. Any surface is a screen, and it can sense everything you pick eg. if you pick up a book, it will screen the reviews and further info right on the cover. Here watch the video so I don't have to explain it.

I like it big time but I wouldn't want to wear it around, might get a lot of attention and then get beat up and robbed. Here is another video showing the creators Pattie Maes and Pranav Mistry of MIT’s Media Lab. Enjoy!
