Imagine a journey in which you can travel to destinations while asleep behind the steering wheel because your self-driving car can "talk" to other such vehicles to maintain a safe distance.
Without using any devices, you can send an e-mail to a friend in no time simply through brain-to-brain communication.
This is not science fiction — this is the future predicted by China's technology giants, and it is closer to reality than you think.
Senior executives at the tech companies said on Thursday that the Internet of Things — a network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity — will further change lives in China.
They were discussing future technology trends at the 2nd World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province.
