After the cellphones that match your mood, here comes the one that promises to catch your moves.
Now cellphones will turn into smart personal assistants. A cellphone is on the way that learns its owner's day-to-day doings, allowing it to come up with all sorts of intelligent advice.
If you thought predictive testing was impressive, you ain't seen nothing yet. A cellphone is on the way that can predict what you are about to do.
Some cellphones already come with built-in calendar that warns you of events you have stored in its memory. The new cellphone is far smarter: it lerans about the things you do from day-to-day, when you do them, who you do them with and where. Its software is able to absorb the magnetic fields of the environment. This will one day allow it to come up with all sorts of intelligent advice, its inventor says. And this could range from what to do to what not. But its inventors point out this could also preempt certain accidents like when you are driving your car at breakneck speed.
For instance, the phone might learn that whenever you phone at least three friends after 5 pm, you will leave the office within half an hour and meet them in a particular bar. If you have a big presentation at work the following day, the phone could be programmed to warn you not to drink too much.
