Like I said, every so often my mom sends me stuff that is pretty darn interesting/cool and this is one of them. No idea where she heard it from, but I was captivated for Pranav Mistry's entire 13 minute video demonstration of his cool new product that looks like it's going to revolutionize our very lives.
It's a "wearable gestural interface" that involves "a pocket projector, a mirror and a camera" and allow a user to interact with physical objects and data associated with them in ways never seen before. Like recognizing your boarding pass and letting you know your flight will be 20 minutes delayed. Looking at a map of the US in your newspaper and seeing weather forecasts superimposed on every part of the country. Snapping a picture just by making the "I'm going to Disneyland!" gesture.
I'm pretty intrigued, though it'd be even better if Mistry found a way for people to use the product without looking like big dorks with tiny projectors hanging from their necks. Check out the full demo below:
