Groundbreaking new technology is eliminating the need for bulky computers and gadgets.

Imagine using your hands to manipulate a computer screen you simply drew on a wall with your fingertips, or using the palm of your hand to make a phone call, and capturing a photo by merely using your fingers to frame your desired shot. All this sounds far-fetched, and quite frankly impossible, but TEDIndia‘s, Pranav Mistry is making all of this a reality, and he’s sharing it for the world to use.

Mistry’s revolutionary software will likely change the way we interact with computers forever.

In this video Mistry demos several tools that help the physical world interact with the world of data – including a look at his SixthSense device and a new, paradigm-shifting paper “laptop”. And in an onstage interview, Mistry reveals that he will open-source the software behind SixthSense, to open its amazing possibilities to all.

What do you think about this amazing technology, it’s benefits and the problems it poses for industry giants such as Microsoft and Apple. Let us know your thoughts by commenting below.
