Students Turn Internet Into a Sixth Human Sense
LONG BEACH, California -- Students at the MIT Media Lab have developed a wearable computing system that turns any surface into an interactive display screen. The wearer can summon virtual gadgets and internet data at will, then dispel them like smoke when they're done. Pattie Maes of the lab's Fluid Interfaces group said the research is aimed at creating a new digital "sixth sense" for humans. In the tactile world, we use our five senses to take in information about our environment and respond to it, Maes explained. But a lot of the information that helps us understand and respond to the world doesn't come from these senses. Instead, it comes from computers and the internet. Maes' goal is to harness computers to feed us information in an organic fashion, like our existing senses.

:P :D
Dangit! I'm stuck! Don't know what to say really!
But I can only imagine the TV commercials for this rig......
Hey Kids!!! Don't let school fool you! With our new 6th Sense, you may never have to worry about using that brain of yours again! why waste time trying to enjoy life.....When there is so MUCH more to enjoy on the Internet!!!.............

My God, what have we come too? And the practical uses are?????? Yeah, thats what I thought. No, wait a minute..Actually,
Should be handy as hell as equipment in different investigation scenarios, like crime scenes, and actually anywhere there might be a lot of info to catalog at once, like an archeology dig. Easier on site comparison data. But will they use for that? Or another toy?

Thanx for another GOOD one Dirtyrabbit!

Combine this with the new carbon nanomaterial(graphine transitor.) and also the new thin-film micro-ECoG device and theres the interface and composition materials, for a fully thought operated device.
Kill em all and let god sort them out!

whats freaky is a few months I came up with an invention in my head of T shirt design and it looked like a video could be watched you would just plug it into your pc USB download a video and show it to anyone and every one
while out and it would have sound and you could wash the shirt

why not make use of them..
