    I know I am usually behind all you so I appologize if this is old news.

    Don't try and reach for your device to check something, have the device check the item for you.

    It is an interesting implementation, it still looks like it has a way to go.

    A few thoughts:

    1. The gaming companies are already working on technology to follow player's motions without the markers. So in a few years I imagine you'll put on the sixthsense device, do a few hand exercises to calibrate it and that'll be all you need.

    2. I still think he's focusing too much on video data displays. Audio through an ear piece is a lot more private and non-intrusive.

    3. One interesting way to interact between the physical and virtual worlds would be to create a wiki tied to GPS co-ordinates so people can input information about any physical point on the planet. so, for example, your GPS/phone notes your location and can tell you the nearest coffee shop etc - and also bring up third party comments about the coffee shop.
