Snowcorn: Another Sixth Sense Device Concept

It took a few days to render these images and while I was rendering them, I was surprised to see this demo at TED. The concept is almost identical! How nice!

Mine’s a bracelet like flexible device with a camera, a projector and Wifi installed. You can also put it on anywhere on your cloth around your chest or neck.

The transparent part is a screen to show basic function or the time. Customize it with the colors and style you like.
Complicated controls can be done in the projected UI.

Translate a word/phrase you’re not familiar with in a book.

Look for a way to get to a station on a train map.

There could be a lot more ways to use this device, so I’ll make the posts later.

  20. Well, this is interesting, and the idea is quite similar to the MIT’s sixth sense. I wish these ideas would be open source and let the wide range of smart people contribute and break the limitation to what these kind of inventions can do. But good work, and I love the idea…let me wait and see.
