Most if techie people know sixth sense technology and Pranav Mistry, right? Here’s a TED video almost all people viewed and suddenly became crazy about it. But if you listened this video carefully, you might be knowing that :

While demonstrating the interface at TEDIndia Conference, Mistry told Rediff, “I don’t want this to comply with some corporate policy. I want people to make their own system. Why not?” See this video carefully.
There was a time a few years ago when Pranav Mistry had become everyone’s favourite engineer-scientist. As part of the team that unveiled The Sixth Sense technology, Mistry mesmerized us. The coloured finger caps, the small and sleep projector-cum-camera, and the necessary theatrics of any tech launch led us to believe that the Sixth Sense was the future, and Mistry was the charioteer.
But then, we were like, what happened? Mistry disappeared from public view for a while, and we’ve all been asking ourselves – so what happened to the guy? What happened to Sixth Sense code and prototypes? Well, as promised Pranav and his team have open-sourced the code for anyone to use and contribute. You can see full details at this google developers link click here.
Mistry has written on the SixthSense blog: “The prototype system runs on Windows platform and majority of the code is written in C++ and C#. We will be uploading newer versions as it is being developed; this will also include a mobile version.”
