Sixth Sense

Watch this whole video. At about the 6 minute mark, you will see the implications for libraries. I would like it if the device would tell me if the book is available at my local library and if it's checked in or not! Very interesting technology!

  1. I showed this to some 8th graders when it fist came out--and they were at first dismissive and bored and then suddenly KEENLY interested and in tune with it. All they could talk about was how they wanted it--begging me to find out when and where they could get one. Our discussion of the implications was quite interesting too. Before I showed it to them, they had to make a list of where they thought tech would be in five, ten, twenty, and fifty years. Some of their predictions were not too far off the mark.
