Unveiling the "Sixth Sense," game-changing wearable tech

Interesting to say the least, could be good in some uses but you'd never see me in one of those get ups, not even if it was implanted. It's bad enough the way things are going with this current 'interconnected society' as it is.

It's just my opinion, but I thought it looked kinda lame.

Pong was better :lol:

Serioiusly, what got me was her comparing it to the special effects in Minority Report, it looked nothing like that, it was closer in resemblance of an etch a sketch, by comparison

Of course it does look lame ATM but you can see the potential, right?:)

I can see the potential, but it is down the road a bit, not years and years, but a bit, and it will more than likely cost a small fortune to be anyway near as cool as she implied it will be, and as small. :yesnod:

I think once developed and refined, this can be extremely useful to all of us let's face it. It is also able to be massively abused though with "every day" decisions we make being manipulated.

Exactly Graham, I wish I could have said it better myself!
