I was excited for two reasons. Firstly, the technology is out of this world, within the next ten years will completely revolutionize how people interact with the environment around them. Secondly, Pranav’s aim isn’t to make money on this but instead to see the 6SD reaches its true potential and indeed change our lives, this is now looking like it could soon be a reality with the release of the open source code and step by step guide of how to make your own for around the $350 mark. This can all be seen and downloaded here.
Everyone seems to be talking about the next generation of smartphones and how they will change and adapt, but I just cant see them competing with the likes of this. As the tech for the 6SD becomes smaller, the images become crisper and in HD and they are kitted out with 4G these things will dominate the consumer marketplace because there is little barriers to what can be done with these devices.
I’m sure the likes of Apple, Nokia etc. have already jumped all over the open source code for the 6SD and it will be interesting to see when they will hit the marketplace and for how much! With there being no patent issues in the way of this they could be knocked out by both the smallest tech developers and the biggest, the price could vary from $400 to $2000 (if you want a little silver apple logo on it…) which is very exciting stuff!
Either way this goes I’m loving the philosophy of getting these devices out to the masses within the next few years and I cant wait to get my hands on one.
