Sixth Sense

Earlier this week, a friend’s status questioned how far away we are from having artificial devices think for us. I’m wondering if he had just seen the Sixth Sense demo by Pattie Maes at TED.com.

I can most certainly see myself using a device like this once they hit the mass market. Short of the heads up display, the iPhone serves many of the same purposes for me already. I’ve always been an information sponge and often incredulous towards people who settle for ignorance when answers and information are easily accessible. While there will always be unknowns in life, why settle for not-knowing when the answers are often right in front of us?
