I'd been sitting down for about fifteen minutes listening to a presentation. It was the first morning of Computex proper, and it was about the Internet of Things and the power of The Internet of Things. Intel was telling attendees about the power of IoT devices, with small low-power chips, that can change the way we do everyday things.

I'm a hardcore gamer, and so it's not a topic that I get naturally excited about. But then the presentation ended and we were given the chance to talk to some of the inventors, entrepreneurs and students trying to create real world solutions. And then I saw a pouch.

To kick off the first day of Computex, Intel held a "Meet the Makers" event showing off some prototypes and proof of concepts showing some of the ways their chips are being used in devices that could one day improve society.

At this event, there was a pillow. And it scares the shit out of me.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
