Posted by: Emily McManus

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.

    Top Futurist Speaks On: Sixth Sense Technology

    Aahhh…

    Finally sixth sense technology meets TRON… the worlds of the digital and the physical finding themselves in a cosmic mixture of magnetic fields, electrons, and memory signals, quarks, and the potential of thought and reality- as we create it; minute by minute, hour by hour, and day by day to infinity. The double slit experiment explained yet still very widely misunderstood for we know not that we are but signals ourselves. Our residual self-images, our signals may now collide and burst into a perfect medley of beautiful colours, where ideas that were once only dreams; have now come to meet us on our doorsteps of reality.

    Lest we open our eyes in the digital world only to find that we are and always have been standing at the edge of the universe, which would justify our infinite imagination by which we travel- thus creating the landscape of our reality on a pay as you go plan. If Carl Sagan could see us now!

    We will all ascend to a much higher level of consciousness as we ourselves find a way to integrate our very own bodies with that of the digital world, thus learning in the end- that we are all one and always have been. But we as a collective are mere signals in the vast network of the entire universe.

    Pranav is really amazing. His attitude to spread his innovation speak about his greatness and working for mankind.I saw his clip it brought tears of pride and moved me to tears. He with so much ease explains everything , i only hope his innovations are NOT used by geedy to make money but by people to HELP others.That’s what are the intentions of Pranav.GOD bless children like Pranav,they are truly assests to man kind.
