My husband called me last night all a-twitter and once I got him
talking slow enough to understand that he wasn't going on about "six
pennies", I could sympathize with the high level of enthusiasm. Earlier
this year, "Sixth Sense Technology" from MIT---basically, a visual
interface system that allows you and the computer in your cell phone to
communicate in some truly astounding ways---was a big hit at TED. This
week, at TED India, inventor Pranav Mistry announced that the
technology will be released as open source...in a matter of months.

"Rather than waiting for that time to come, I want people to make their
own system. Why not?," Mistry says in an article on Rediff
Business. "People will be able to make their own hardware. I will give
them instructions how to make it. And also provide them key
software...give them basic key software layers...they will be able to
build their own applications. They will be able to modify base level
and do anything".

Makers, start your engines.
