Pattie Maes demos the Sixth Sense

Pattie Maes demos the Sixth Sense | Video on TED.com

I love hearing and reading about what goes on at the yearly TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) conference — it’s like a big symposium where people demo new technologies and products. You’ll see stuff demonstrated here 5 years or more before it possibly comes to the market (which it nearly always does). This is where I saw a technology strangely similiar to “Microsoft Surface” demonstrated years before Microsoft announced it (I still think they either stole it or bought the technology).

The video I linked here, while just a prototype, is what I keep telling people to look for in the next “big thing” — ubiquitous, nearly omnipotent meta-information, though more than likely in its end form, only the user will be able to see what he/she is manipulating (think video glasses).
