Where do you think the world is headed in 2015? Seems to be a key year which keeps coming up. Everything by 2015. This video was made in 2011 and so the person who made it had a vision and it’s pretty impressive. How far have we come? What have we yet to achieve and what will the world really look like in 2015? The world won’t be flat, not if Tactus technology has its way. They are working on screens with dynamic touch where there is more tactile feedback and texture. Great improvement for assistive technology and may well free us from the scourge of misspelt texts and documents. People need that digital fingertip feedback for the hand – eye co ordination. Others are working on flexible screens so that things can be rolled and twisted . The planet is also determined to connect and so languages , MOOCs for languages, translators and anything which facilitates understanding is making headway right now. The language barriers are coming down so we can improve learning and communication. It’s why I particularly like the beginning of this video where the children are communicating across the screens with tools to help them understand each other.
