GPS navigation devices are dime a dozen these days, so it is no surprise to see yet another model, albeit in a concept form factor, make headlines. We’re talking about the SixthSense navigation device by Benjamin Peterson, a senior pursuing B.S Industrial Design & Minor in Sustainable Design at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA. Basically, this gizmo will incorporate Pranav Mistry’s SixthSense gestural recognition technology and components to help one reach their destination safely. It is worn like a pendant in front of the user, where other hardware specifications include a built-in projector, camera and processor to make it all possible. We do hope that battery technology by then would have improved by quantum leaps and bounds, since its built-in battery might have some heavy duty lifting ahead of it considering the kinds of functionalities crammed in.
