MIT Researcher: 6 Ways Technology Will Make Us Immortal, Telepathic And More


Telepathy

Rose said the emerging Internet of Things trend will also enable people to be telepathic, or know what those around them are thinking and doing.

The MIT-developed LumiTouch, for instance, is a picture frame that allows users to know when their loved ones are thinking about them. LumiTouch users can squeeze the frame surrounding a photo of a family member, and then that family member's framed picture of them (assuming it’s also a LumiTouch) will light up as a result, sending the signal that they're on somebody's mind.

Rose also noted other new, Jetson-like gadgets for the home that arm users with a telepathic-like skill. Internet-connected doorbells, for instance, can be programmed to send a specific ring tone to family member's smartphone when another member is approaching the door.
