What If EVERYTHING In Your Life Was Connected to the Internet?

(Click picture for Large view) You're at home, in the kitchen, cutting vegetables. But what if the cutting board was connected to the internet and it could show you recipes for delicious meals? Plus calorie information?

A child is in a classroom, seeing another child from some distant country in a virtual monitor and actively playing a game with him. Yes, this is science fiction right now. But, if South Korea-based tech giant Samsung has its way, it's what everyone's future will look like.
