Intel guru says 3-D Internet will arrive within five years.
A technology guru at Intel Corp. predict that the internet will look significantly different in five to 10 years, when much of it will be three dimensional, or 3D.
Sean Koehl, a technology evangelist with Intel Labs, said technology is emerging
that will one day change the way we interact with electronic devices and with each other. That could come as soon as five years from now when, he predicted, there will be realistic-looking three-dimensional applications.
"I think our lives will be a lot different," said Koehl. "Look at the trends of the last decade or two. Think about computers becoming widespread, and the Internet and these mobile devices. With the availability of all this computing power, we're only beginning to exploit it. Now we're adding more intelligence and more capability. Add that to 3-D worlds
and it could be very different than the sort of experiences that we have today."
