Skinput vs. Sixth Sense



Skinput:
Seems silly to define inputs based on the sound and vibrations caused by tapping specific parts of your arm. People are fat, skinny, muscular, flabby, and so on; it seems like the variety would quickly overwhelm this system, or at least severely limit it. And from a usability standpoint, it would be extra frustrating if a button didn't give you the desired result and you knew it was your fault because you made the wrong noise with your chubby arm.



Sixth Sense:
Some of the usage examples are kind of silly, but wow. I'm not too excited about all of the new augmented reality stuff happening, but sometimes I'll see something that I think might look like the future. I love TED.
