MIT’s Pattie Maes Talks ‘Sixth Sense’

SixthSenseWe only need four syllables to describe the technology demonstrated by Pattie Maes, associate professor in MIT’s Program in Media Arts and Sciences, at last week’s TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference: IN-CRED-I-BLE!

Maes introduced a yet-unnamed product that, since its demo last week, has created a lot of buzz in the tech world for its far-reaching capabilities.

This wearable device, which Maes refers to as a “sixth sense,” contains a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. When we saw it, we immediately thought “Minority Report.” You remember the futuristic Tom Cruise/Colin Farrell sci-fi thriller where they never touched the computer, but rather manipulated the screens by simply moving their fingers in the air. Well, it’s here – and it’s beyond exciting!

(We can’t even do this invention justice in our description of it, so be sure to watch the video after the jump.)

Website Design: It's not the Mona Lisa

This is something we deal with a lot: getting a design just right for both the client and the objective for the site. Well, we just wanted to take a moment and give you our design advice in a nutshell:

  1. Hire someone you trust, and trust them.
  2. It’s not the Mona Lisa so don’t stare at it (no one else will)
  3. Make sure it matches your other marketing and branding (and if it’s your first branding, then make sure the elements – color, theme, logo – translate well to print.)
  4. Make sure it’s all about visitors to your site and getting them to react the way you plan (contact you, join a newsletter, buy something)
  5. Keep it flexible so you can add content, sections, and change its message to match your marketing.
  6. Do a Marilyn Monroe: Ms. Monroe used to get dressed, put on her jewelry, and then take off the first thing that caught her eye in the mirror. Do this with your website. When the design is done, take away the flashiest design element. Then make sure the most prominent thing left is your call to action.

Websites are the core of today’s business strategy, and they should be looked at with an eye for business and marketing. You will get better results over a longer term.
