Touch and voice controls are passé. The latest temptation is communicating with your gadgets through your thoughts. And that’s possible with a process called internal vocalisation or subvocalisation. Researchers at the MIT Media Lab have created a prototype (AlterEgo) that you wear on your face. It is capable of detecting tiny shifts that occur when you subvocalise, while saying words to yourself in your head. The wearable can detect and translate it into a meaningful command for a computer.

The ‘made-to-order’ chair is designed by David Hugh, who spent 10 years developing a secret equation that defines how posture is affected by gravitational forces.
