The Shape-Shifting Phone of the Future

Posted in Telecommunications

I recently came across this article discussing Intel’s plans for a phone that may within 3-5 years change shapes according to the users needs.

Wrap Your Brain Around This Future iPhone

Posted in Telecommunications

A Canadian movie firm has put together a short 50-second movie clip spoofing the future of “iPhone Everything” by suggesting it will have a neural interface and be able to control things by thought.

Late yesterday, Google released a very cool new mobile application which employs voice recognition technology. The question is not so much what the technology can do today, the question is what will the technology be able to do in the near future—and how might it require professionals in the education, health care, and a host of other…

Dear Readers: I’m now in the process of trying to incorporate more short videos into my website. Below is my first attempt.

Sometimes it is hard to forget how much change we have experienced in the recent past. To better help illustrate the point, I’d like to show you two photos.
