Mind-powered PCs and phones come closer to reality

Melbourne, Dec 20 (ANI): Technology giant IBM has just unveiled its top five predictions for new technologies to emerge or advance in the next five years, including mind controlled phones and computers.

Hoverboards remain suspiciously absent, but the ability to dial someone just by thinking of them has been flagged as a way to take current technologies like Siri a step further.

IBM scientists are also working on ways to hook people's brains to their computers, allowing for navigation by thought, the Herald Sun reported.

In data released in the US, predictions have also warned of the end of junk mail, replaced with spam advertising so sophisticated and tailored you won't think it's junk anymore.

Turning peddle power and the kinetic energy of water running through your pipes into electricity is also on the cards. It also suggests potential downfall of passwords with the advent of voice and facial recognition.

Advances in smartphone technology have also been predicted to end the digital supremacy of high-income earners, with powerful, hand-held computers expected to be in the hands of 80 per cent of the world's population within five years. (ANI)
