wear ur world: MIT's sixthsense wearable multitouch interface

have the entire world as your computer by turning any flat surface — or your hand — into a multitouch display. wuw consists of yourself wearing a webcam capturing your gestures of color marked fingers and the tangible world around you [any surface, walls or objects], to which a tiny projector [mounted on a hat] projects the intangible information.

  1. Unbelieveable! If they get rid of the backpack it is really cool 🙂 Do they wear the computer in the backpack? I wonder if this would work with a smart phone, too.
