Among the sensory technologies IBM's R&D labs expects to have a big impact over the next 5 years: haptic capabilities that deliver a real-life sense of touch (IMMR is a player here); image-recognition capabilities for billions of photo/video uploads (Facebook and Google are both investing here); sensor networks for analyzing audio activity; and smell sensors embedded into mobile devices. Should these technologies take off, IBM could benefit via IP licensing and from providing analytics solutions to process the data they create. (PR)
