When we encounter something, someone or some place, we use our five natural senses which include eye, ear, nose, tongue mind and body to perceive information about it; that information helps us make decisions and choose the right actions to take. But arguably the most useful information that can help us make the right decision is not naturally perceivable with our five senses, namely the data, information and knowledge that mankind has accumulated about everything and which is increasingly available online.

Although the miniaturization of computing devices allows us to carry computers in our pockets, keeping us continually connected to the digital world, there is no link between

It was developed by Pranav Mistry, a PhD student in the Fluid Interfaces Group at the MIT Media Lab. A grad student with the Fluid Interfaces Group at MIT, he caused a storm with his creation of SixthSense. Right now we use our “devices” (computers, mobile phones, tablets, etc.) to go into the internet and get information that we want. With SixthSense we will use a device no bigger than current cell phones and probably eventually as small as a button on our shirts to bring the internet to us in order to interact with out…show more content…
The name of this device is Telepointer. It is hands-free, headwear-free-device that allows the wearer to experience a visual collaborative telepresence, with text, graphics, and a shared cursor, displayed directly on real world objects. Mann has referred this device as “Synthetic Synesthesia of Sixth Sense”. It is a real-time groupware interface feature for indicating where other users are pointing which can also act as a communication channel by conveying gestural messages.

It has been tested in telemedicine, and has potential to become a great influence in improving quality of health care. The other reason of its great possibility is its capability of effective communication, precise diagnosis which helps to take a better decision by means of discussion and consultation between the expert and the junior doctors. Since it has large potential for wider acceptance in real life applications, more improvement in real time positioning accuracy is
