Abstract: The Sixth Sense is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information. The sixth sense technology was introduced to bridge the gap between physical world and the digital world. This paper provides an analytical approach towards the Sixth Sense technology wherein the cursor movements and click events of the mouse are controlled by simple hand gestures. A Web Cam is used as a sensing element to detect the gestures. The gestures sensed by the camera are converted into digital form using image processing to develop a virtual human computer interaction (HCI).
Keywords: Sixth Sense technology, human computer interaction (HCI), image processing, hand gestures.
