Close on the heels of my last post The phone becomes a magic wand to the cloud services: Mobile sensor based interface to the cloud to jump start the Internet of things ..

see this cool development from MIT called sixth sense

My best bit is: Newspapers have a future :) and the ‘phone call from hand’

As crunchgear says ..

describing it as a “sixth sense” device doesn’t quite capture what it’s all about. It’s really more of an organic computer than anything else, you yourself being the “organic” half. Whip your hand out and draw the “@” on it, you’re able to check your e-mail. A stranger approaches you at a party, then the projector projects all their pertinent info: name, Web site, blog address, what they like and dislike, etc. “Wait a minute, you actually like Lost? Well, I know we’ll never be friends, so let’s not waste each other’s time.”
