IBM Next 5 in 5 — 2010 (via IBMLabs)
IBM’s at it again, predicting the future. Their next 5 in 5 is out and it’s got some interesting predictions.
My favorite is the one about the 3D holograms. I would love my own hologram. For example, this would solve an interesting work at home vs. work at work conundrum I’ve had. I could have my hologram sit inside the flourescent lit cube zones while I enjoy my cozy, quiet, hyper-productive home office. Or, if you have kids jumping all over you at home and use the office cube as an escape, you could have your hologram hang out at home during the day. Lots of possibilities there.
Check out the video they’ve put together to illustrate their predictions and let me know which one is your favorite. Or, do you have a prediction of your own you would like to share? If so, please do.
Also, Bloomberg has a good article on the 5 in 5 that you should take a look at: IBM Expects to See Holographic Phone Calls, Air-Powered Batteries by 2015.
