Humans will one day render as useless walking bones, because machines will take over all the chores and whatever else that humans don’t feel like doing.  We can already take a peek at the future by seeing car manufacturers going the route of driverless car.  The video right after the break talks about how Toyota, Audi, and other well known car brands are working and researching on driverless cars.  So far, their prototypes seem to drive themselves alright.  So, I guess they got the driverless down, but how safe will their driverless vehicles be?  This is why I think we might not see this type of cars at least for few years on.  Nonetheless, I hope they can work out the safety issues for these driverless cars soon, because I’m itching to read, blog, eat, snore, and scratch my itchy back whenever I’m on the road outing.

A year back or two, I don’t remember the time exactly, South Korea had employed few robots to be school teacher and a prison somewhere (I forgot where) had employed robots to be prison guards.  Perhaps, more of these machines will even do more stuffs for us humans soon.  Imagine, army of robots/machines go to a piece of land, build bunch of more specialized machines on spot, and from the ground up these machines together build a building or house that can, in time, expand, contract, remodel, and whatever else that the owner of this futuristic house wants to do.  Let just hope, more machines/robots don’t mean more bad things.  Exciting about the future?

Samsung Goes Futuristic, Showcasing Samsung Smart Transparent Window At CES 2012

Samsung Smart Transparent Window is definitely something we had seen in Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible 4 and other movies.  Say what?  Remember Tom Cruise and his female coworker/agent had to chase the bad guys in his cool electric car?  I think it was an electric Audi, but I might be wrong.  His female coworker/agent had to pull up an interactive map or something like that through the car’s front windshield, and the front windshield was transparent enough which allowed her to peek through the front windshield and yet keep the interactive content visible on the front windshield.  Well, Samsung Smart Transparent Window has the same concept, except that it allows users to check weather and other contents on real window (i.e., a window inside a house).

Samsung Smart Transparent Window can also allow users to use a virtual blind to close the window.  In regarding to virtual blind, I think it’s cool, but I’m just worrying that some really bizarre, embarrassing situations might occur if Samsung Smart Transparent Window crashes, disengages the virtual blind and allowing strangers to peek inside whatever compartment which it supposes to shut out.

Anyhow, I like the idea of this technology!  Perhaps someday in the future when Samsung Smart Transparent Window is popular and cheap enough, I might install it inside my house.  Check out the video right after the break to see Samsung Smart Transparent Window in action at CES 2012.
