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


Protection

The advancement of technology is also empowering humans to better protect themselves, Rose said, sharing a half-astounding, half-frightening fact that a Google search for "teddy bear cameras" came back with 1.8 million results.

But, less obvious -- and perhaps less intrusive -- means of protections are emerging because of technology, Rose said, citing Google Glass as an example. Google's new internet-connected eyewear allows users to record every moment of their day, meaning they can perfectly recall conversations, what was going on around them and who was around them, if they ever needed to glimpse back in time for security-related or really any other reason.
