At TED|India the genius that is Pranav Mistry
revisits his sixth sense device, shares other human interface devices
he’s worked on in the past and shows us a possible future of ubiquitous
information and gesture based digital interaction. He also
reveals that the software behind sixth sense technology is to be
released as open source.

could be separated by half a world.
Is the combined DNA of these products a likely future tool of
interactive education? Or will schools, as we know them, have ceased to
exist by then?
