Some of you may have already seen this but I just now stumbled across it.  Pattie Maes demos the Sixth Sense at TED.  Sixth Sense is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world around you with digital information and lets you use natural hand gestures to interact with that information.  Something you sorta have to see to fully understand how it works.  It’s like Microsoft Surface but fully mobile and works on any wall or flat surface.  My dream is to have a computer with full keyboard interface without actually having to hold a keyboard ..or even screen… this takes us one step closer.
