Intel: Future pills may contain information that is transported to your brain
  
Future-thinking Nicholas Negroponte predicts people will be able to 'ingest' information in his latest glimpse of what's in store 
 
Pills will replace eyes in the future as the main provider of new information to our brains, it has been predicted.

Famed futurist Nicholas Negroponte says ingesting pills into the bloodstream will be the best way of learning in the future.

And it could happen within the next 30 years, says the founder of MIT Media Lab.

The acclaimed innovator made his ground-breaking prediction in his latest TED Talk, seen here at the end of this YouTube clip. 
 
"You're going to swallow a pill and know English. You're going to swallow a pill and know Shakespeare," he told the audience.

"And the way to do it is through the bloodstream. So once it's in your bloodstream, it basically goes through and gets into the brain…and the different pieces get deposited in the right places."

Mr Negroponte has been providing useful insights into the future for the last 30 years, predicting everything from changes in video and television to the development of wireless and digital technology.
 
His latest talk celebrated many of his previous predictions, which seemed ridiculous at the time but were spot on.
