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


Making The Impossible Possible

Technology has already helped humans achieve some pretty remarkable things -- but that phenomenon is not over yet.

That was the message delivered by David Rose, a product designer and researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab, during his session Monday at XChange Solution Provider 2013. Rose specifically honed in on the emerging "Internet of Things" trend -- or the movement by which embedded sensors are allowing everyday objects to "speak" to one another and connect to the internet -- while providing a glimpse into our technology-driven future.

Rose touched on six unique capabilities the "Internet of Things" and technology in general will allow humans to do -- many of which have only been dreamed of in movies, books and fairy tales.

Take a look to see what the future holds.
