I hope that a billion times more people know about the TED Talks than know about JimOnLight.com.
The TED people have some of the most unbelievably intelligent people gravitating around them – or perhaps more accurately, they are revolving around a body of smarts to massive that I have not yet to this day been disappointed with. So much, in fact, that I ended that sentence with a preposition just thinking about it’s awesomeness.
Okay, I’m not gonna say too much about what the subject in the video below is, but I want you all to just imagine having a small device on your person that could do everything you could think of, including making calls. Oh wait, you’re thinking – I have an iPhone for that. So do I, and I love it. But imagine that, instead of interacting with your iPhone on it’s terms, the device interacted with your daily existence on your turf.
A few weeks ago one of my former Sweden colleagues (thanks, Kunal!) sent around a TED video on something called “SixthSense” – a technology that basically takes the idea behind carrying around a display and turns it upside down and several angles of the meridian towards ridiculously awesome. That all make sense? The guy behind the mystery, Pranav Mistry, has created a device that has a high level of intellect, and projects data with light onto the surfaces in your life.
This idea is mindblowing. I am turned upside down with this idea. Thank you, Pranav. Can I buy you a beer?
