What's Happening In Your World
Get ready for a brave (and admittedly scary) new world.  Scientists at IBM have announced that, within five years, computers will be able to experience the world like a human.  They will be able to see, hear, taste and even smell the world around them.  They say that one day soon, you’ll be able to order your wedding dress by simply touching the screen. Scientists also say that one day, smart phones will be smarter, with vibrators strong enough to match the vibrations that your fingers feel when you touch something.  That means that, when you touch cloth on the screen of your phone, it will feel like cloth. “We’re not talking about fuzzy screens,” said Bernie Meyerson, IBM’s vice president of innovation. “You’re not going to have to dry clean your Samsung.” The recent advances in this area mostly consist of video games where the controllers vibrate in response to what happens on the screen.   But they say that in the next few years, the experience is going to be a lot more realistic. It’s only a matter of time before someone tries to make a computer think that it’s a human being.  Then, our greatest nightmares from old school science fiction movies might start to come to life.  Is technology always a good thing?  It depends on who you ask.
