You probably have a smartphone. You can call with it. Talk in it. Send messages and pictures. Check you bank account. Pay with it. Listen to music, radio and watch TV. Very smart right. But what if you can order your pizza with your shoes?
Pizza Hut just released the shoes called Pie Tops which include a button that connects to a mobile app to order the pizza. Sounds pretty cool right, but the shoes are designed to coincide with March Madness, and are limited edition. Only 64 pairs which is the same number of teams in the basketball tournament.
If you can grab one of these shoes, you are very smart if you use these shoes with your Netflix socks which pause shows when you fall asleep. The streaming giant unveiled a do-it-yourself project called Netflix Socks, footwear with built-in sensors detecting when doze off and making sure you don`t sleep through the rest of your stream.
You think I
m kidding right? Im not. This is just the beginning. Robots will be smarter than us all by 2029 warns Google futurologist. Computers will be able to understand our language, learn from experience and outsmart even the most intelligent humans, according to Google`s director of engineering Ray Kurzweil.
Mr Kurzweil is not radical anymore. Now, we have Google self-driving cars, and Apple`s Siri (voice recognition software). Within 15 years robots will have overtaken us, having fulfilled the so-called Turning test where computers can exhibit intelligent behavior equal to that of the human.
It may sound scary, but even more scary is that humans are going to be artificially intelligent. Not only that. According to Ray Kurzweil, humans will be hybrids by 2030!
“Our brains will be able to connect directly to the cloud, where there will be thousands of computers, and those computers will augment our existing intelligence. He said the brain will connect via nanobots – tiny robots made from DNA strands.”
Do you really know what that means? It means you finally have the chance to beat the World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen.
