IBM has revealed its predictions for the computer..all 5 human senses by 2018






If you’ve only just got used to talking to your phone, get ready for a major change.

IBM has revealed its predictions for the computer we will all be using in 2018 – and it believes they will have all five senses, and will communicate with us in radically different ways.

‘Infrared and haptic technologies will enable a smart phone’s touchscreen technology and vibration capabilities to simulate the physical sensation of touching something,’ the firm said.

‘So you could experience the silkiness of that catalog’s Egyptian cotton sheets instead of just relying on some copywriter to convince you.

‘It’s amazing when you look back over the 60+ years of the computing revolution and see how far we have come in such a relatively short time,’ said IBM’s Bernard Meyerso.

‘The first electronic programmable computers, built in the 1940s, were essentially really fast electronic calculators.

Then came the mainframe, the PC, the Internet and social networking.

Today, we’re entering the era of cognitive computing–machines that help us think.’

‘One of the most intriguing aspects of this shift is our ability to give machines some of the capabilities of the right side of the human brain.

‘New technologies make it possible for machines to mimic and augment the senses. ‘

Today, we see the beginnings of sensing machines in self-parking cars and biometric security–and the future is wide open.


well isnt that just great?

we really wont be needed in 20-30 years..except for purely hard labour..labour a robot wouldn’t even do!

  1. These predictions creep me out though I’m not suprised at all..

  2. Reblogged this on RD Revilo.

  3. This is exactly what is wrong with society today. We are disconnecting ourselves from reality and replacing it with virtual realities through computers. Before anyone gets pissed off, the internet does have some great values and I’m not saying we need to burn it. I’m saying that you don’t need a computer to think for you, nor do you need it to smell for you, nor do you need this bullshit like Facebook. “In 5 years a computer will know what you like to eat better than you do” so you trust a computer to make decisions for you? What a joke.

    They are just trying to replace us with machines. Man’s creation, it’s not going to work either. They don’t see that though. It’s an endless race to ‘perfection’ when it don’t exist.
