Do you have a hard time finding the remote control to the TV? Engineers are working to solve that problem.
In the future, a webcam will make the process easier. By moving your hand, you can control the volume or change the channel.
Dr. Bjorn Stenger created 'Gesture Interface Technology.' He is now working to make sure the webcam can tell the different between you intended command or an unintended movement such as sneezing.
This technology may even help teachers in the future to control their SmartBoard.
Do you ever wish that you were invisible like when you have to clean your room or eat your vegetables? There is a new technology that is being tested with the military. Using technology, a Canadian company is designing textiles that will blend into environments so that you can go undetected. They claim to have created an invisibility cloak but it is top secret right now. Take a look at the video below to learn more.

Thirteen year old Hibiki Kono had dreams of scaling walls like Spiderman. So he turned to technology to make that dream a reality. Watch the video to see how he did it.
What can you create with technology?
While engineers are creating better cars and computers, they are also looking to enhance your education. One tool they are working on is an interactive desk.
Teachers can upload an assignment, test, or project. Students can complete the work by sliding their answers in the correct place.
These desks are very expensive. It may take years to get these in every classroom. However, it's a great resource that teachers and students will love to have in the future.
