Wish there was a gadget able to transform your boring office uniform into a party outfit, or even a device that guides you straight to new friends?A researcher with Fluid Interfaces at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab, Coelho works at the cutting edge of wearable devices that may be smarter than the person wearing them.Coelho, 35, was speaking at MIT's 2015 EmTech conference Wednesday in Rio de Janeiro, where for two days leaders in emerging technology give glimpses of the future.The answer to that, says another MIT scientist, Skylar Tibbits, is self assembly.Tibbits means self assembly as in the thing – the bed, or whatever it may be – assembling itself.If that doesn't sound creepy enough, consider what Coelho says is the next-next frontier: not wearable technology, but chips and WiFi devices brought right into the human body.
