Wearable computing’s next step – gestures only, no handheld device

6thsenseImagine walking around with a mobile computing device embedded in your clothes or hanging around your neck that lets you compute, take photos and more without needing to actually handle a device. Instead you use gestures and your fingers to ‘perform’ the computer commands.

SixthSense is a project run out of the MIT Media Lab
that takes wearable computing a step further.

The SixthSense prototype cost only $350 to build and can do things like take photos, freehand draw, multi-touch gesturing to zoom in/out and pan, check e-mail and more.

A picture tells a thousand words and a video probably tells a million:
