Editorial Reviews

Mobile phones that read your mind? Video games that can cure cancer? Wearable robots that give you the strength of Ironman? David Pogue predicts which technologies will transform our daily lives. These advancements are already taking shape in laboratories around the world - and gadgets that once were purely science fiction are on the verge of becoming as common as the iPhones and Androids Pogue reviews every day.

This is a 60 minute DVD that has English subtitles and video descriptions as its extras. PBS host David Pogue explores 4 subjects; humanoid robots, mind-reading machines, augmented reality and the possibility that gamers, working together could help cure disease.

The main section - robots shows what a robot can do, how they are built to overcome obstacles and how they help people today and in the future. We see paraplegics walking and firefighters supported to carry heavy loads. Also explored are machines that read your brain's impulses and what Goggle has already brought out... a small computer in eyeglasses and how gamers can combine together to solve problems.

Many of these ideas already exist and are being used and are not the fanciful ideas of the future such as a helicopter in every driveway.
Still this is an interesting exploration into developing technology.

David Pogue does his usual great job of narration - witty and informative. I was especially impressed by the segments involving robots - robots that can autonomously walk, right themselves, and even play soccer, along with other robots that can help one carry heavy loads and help the severely disabled walk. The robots actually can learn from experience - eg. to resist being pushed over, and to imitate the movements of someone in front. Also demonstrated - a limited ability to read one's mind, as well as for a human to issue commands merely by thinking them (wearing 14 electrodes).
