Augmented Reality for Autism

I have very little experience with people on the Autistic spectrum, but designer Timothy Byrne of Western Washington University has a brother with an autistic disorder, a fact the propelled him to invent "Sixthsense for Autism". Building upon MIT's Pranav Mistry's SixthSense technology, this conceptual project tries to provide its user social cues for everyday situations. Here's for example standing in line while using the device:

In the following video Byrne explains the motivations behind his design and show some other uses:

Visit the West Washington University's channel on Youtube for more possible uses of Sixthsense, such as aiding those with impaired memory, in the classroom, for construction, and while driving or traveling.

This is a great invention for Autistic kids. I'm glad more and more people are designing tools to help cope in our ever fast moving world. Keep up the good work! I wish I was talented enough to contribute. :)

I don't have much knowledge concerning autistic disorder either but this device looks like an extremely helpful thing for elders who get lost often, you know. In the top websites for essay writing office there worked a houseman having sclerosis. Should he have it, everything would be OK. But how exactly does it work?
