I see dead people...

This years CES was a cornucopia of little gadgets that are not only taking small steps for robotics, but giant leaps for AI kind.  Every company was doing what it could to out-do each other to give technology more power, more intelligence, and more control over our lives.  Almost every tool in our home will soon be able to "Sense" what a human is wanting and able to act accordingly.  Smart-phones currently have over 18 specialized sensors that help detect movement, direction, and facial recognition.  These sensors are usually dormant until the user asks an app for help.  But soon, the phone will decide when a tool is needed and automatically activate when desired.  This new ability is being termed "Context-Awareness" and will switch on automatically and exchange data with other devices in a handset, such as cameras, microphones, GPS and other machines. 

Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs this year in a crazy hodgepodge of chaos and AI worship introduced many concepts that brought a chill to ones soul.  Cameras that could read text... Robots have moved beyond 1's and 0's.  Cars that can be charged wirelessly using "Halo" technology... Robots aren't tied to the plug anymore.  Everything connected to the internet... Robots are already using subliminal messaging to inform us that we are worthless and can't do anything without them.
