You culs certainly pair haptic devices with one of the thought-controlled headsets (http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1309114) floating around and win at poker.

That would essentially be selective mind reading. Outside of the gambling hall, you could use something along those lines anywhere non-complex silent communication is required.

Making VR even more real

The visual and audio cues of virtual reality are here. Now, the physical cues are also coming. Here is a description of a haptic body suit (alas, not yet available) that provides you with sensations corresponding to what's happening in the VR world. So, if something is crawling on your arm, you feel the tingle. You get shot, you feel an impact (not fatal, of course).

How long before full-body suits allow you to experience a full range of sensations in a form of telepresence?

There is an Asimov story in the I, Robot series about a robot that, due to a factory accident, becomes a mind reader. It eventually went insane trying to resolve the comflicts that came up when it had to lie to prevent hurting people with truths they did not want to hear.

@betajet: I once read a story about a man who discovered he could read minds.

I think it woudl be terrible to be able to read other people's minds -- I might discover that their light-hearted quips about my sense of dress aren't intended as jokes at all LOL

I once read a story about a man who discovered he could read minds.  At first it was a lot of fun, but then it got to be quite depressing because he could tell what people really though of him.  After a while it got so bad couldn't sleep any more, and he started wandering the streets late at night.

One night as he walked past a dark alley, a mugger jumped out at him with a gun and demanded his money.  Our friend said "I'm not afraid of you" and reached for the gun.  The gun went off, killing our friend instantly.

When the police arrived, the mugger was still there holding the gun in a daze, trembling.  When he saw the police, he looked at them and stammered "I thought the gun was empty".

What do you think the future holds? Are there any other things that were once regarded as science fiction that you feel are heading our way?

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
