Brave New Digital World



Computer genius Pranav Mistry is trying to bridge the "digital divide" between the real world and the digital world by turning pretty much any ordinary object into a computer.

Imagine taking pictures with your hands. Touching a picture on your regular old newsprint newspaper and having a video play. Playing a video game on a regular sheet of paper. Mistry makes it happen.

It's been a long time since I've seen any new tech gadget that truly fascinated me. Or scared me. Or made me think about what a strange world I'll be living in by the time I'm an old lady. But this did it.

Prepare to be amazed and terrified. Welcome to Mistry's magical world:
