The device itself comprises of a pocket project, a mirror, and a camera, all in a pendant like, wearable device. The device itself will track user's hand gestures and transfer that information into the computer which the user will also be wearing. Using different colored markers on the user's fingertips, software will recognize the gestures and relay that information to the pocket projector to display desired actions. SixthSense will also support multi-touch and multi-user intereaction.

or pan map images with just simple hand gestures. It will give users the ability to draw on any given surfaces simply by having the camera track the user's index finger.
