Another genius of India

By Prachiti Dhopatkar

Pranav Mistry

Technology has no limit to grow. After looking at Pranav Mistry I agree to this that gadget over load will soon disappear in few years. He has bridged the gap between the digital world and the physical world. Your day to day gestures will connect you to the digital world. His view is integrating these two worlds will help us to stay human to be more connected to our physical world and it will help us not being machine by sitting in front of machine. India is soon going to have this available at a mass scale.

Pranav Mistry currently, he is Research Assistant and PhD candidate at the MIT Media Lab. Before joining MIT he has worked as a UX Researcher with Microsoft. Received his Master in Media Arts and Sciences from MIT and Master of Design from IIT Bombay, completed my bachelors degree in Computer Science and Engineering. Palanpur is his hometown, which is situated in northern Gujarat in India.

He has developed a ‘Sixth Sense’. Some previous projects from Mistry’s work at MIT includes intelligent sticky notes, Quickies, that can be searched and can send reminders; a pen that draws in 3D; and TaPuMa, a tangible public map that can act as Google of physical world. His research interests also include Gestural and Tangible Interaction, Ubiquitous Computing, AI, Machine Vision, Collective Intelligence and Robotics. I won’t say much but his inventions are worth a salute an Indian behind whom I am crazy. He is one of the few master minds from India who is well known in the field of technology globally. For his work please watch this video its a 15 min video but its worth watching.
