'SixthSense' is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world around us with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information.      

Slavoj Žižek’s advice to you: ‘Learn, learn, & learn’ –

Embedding, unfortunately, is currently disabled for this clip; but see here for a Question & Answer session with Slavoj Žižek, held at the University of Vermont in November of 2009. The topic of his lecture had been “Ideology in Hollywood Today”, and the Q&A began by focusing on the relevance of learning how to be smart critics of ideology.
Early in the session Žižek claims that ‘there are so many things happening today that undermine … our basic perception of what it means to be a human being.’ He then goes on to share his enthusiasm for SixthSense, a technology that could be ubiquitous in the developed world within a matter of years. And there are dozens – if not hundreds or thousands! – of ‘breakthrough’ technologies looming on the horizon. The iPad, for all its faults, will inspire all sorts of competition in a market that’s been woefully moribund. Or, for the home entertainment enthusiast, there’s 3D theatre equipment. The technology is still in its infancy and the initial offerings are unlikely to make much market penetration, but with additional development it could take home media into fully-immersed virtual reality. But that’s hypothetical and contingent on future development, whereas SixthSense is currently beginning production. ...
