Bibliography for: "Five innovations in the next five years" FIVE MORE INNOVATIONS that have the potential to change the way people work, live and play over the next five years were formally unveiled at the IBM's fifth annual "Next Five in Five" list recently. The Next Five in Five is based on market and societal trends expected to transform our lives, as well as emerging technologies from IBM's Labs around the world that can make these innovations possible. In the next five years, IBM predicts that technology innovations will change people's lives in the following ways: 1. YOU'LL BEAM UP YOUR FRIENDS IN 3-D In the next five years, 3-D interfaces - like those in the movies - will let you interact with 3- D holograms of your friends in real time. Movies and TVs are already moving to 3-D, and as 3-D and holographic cameras get more sophisticated and miniaturised to fit into cell phones, you will be able to interact with photos, browse the Web and chat with your friends in entirely new ways. Scientists are working to improve video chat to become holography chat - or `3-D telepresence.' The technique uses light beams scattered from objects and reconstructs them a picture of that object, a similar technique to the one human eyes use to visualise our surroundings. Just as a flat map of the earth has distortion at the poles that makes flight patterns look indirect, there is also distortion of data - which is becoming greater as digital information becomes `smarter' - like your digital photo album. Photos are now geo- tagged, the Web is capable of synching information across devices and computer interfaces are becoming more natural. Already, scientists at IBM Research are working on new ways to visualise 3-D data, working on technology that would allow engineers to step inside of a designs of everything from

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
