Glasses Overlay Ghost Hands To Teach New Skills [Video]
Learn new skills through the teacher's eyes.
Back in the 19th century, Charles Caleb Colton coined the phrase ‘Imitation is the highest form of flattery,’ but he never touched on what is actually gained by the imitator. Presumably, the person being copied achieved something worth knowing. But with Ghost Glasses, you get to avoid misinterpretations and ensure that whatever it is you are trying to learn is being taught by a pro.
Created by Winyu Chinthammit and a group of researchers at the University of Tasmania in Australia, Ghost Glasses are a pair of glasses worn by both a teacher and a student, allowing the student to learn a new skill. The glasses contain tiny cameras that track the teacher’s hand movements as they complete a task, then the feed is sent to the student.The student sees the teacher’s movements in a projected image, and can place his hands right on top of his teacher’s, making sure his technique is perfected.
