This year, IBM’s "5 in 5" focuses on cognitive computing which the company believes to the new era of computing. By focusing on the five basic human senses; touch, sight, hearing, taste and smell, the highlighted innovations will change the way we interact with computers as they mimic our basic human senses in their own ways.

One of the more futuristic innovations is the ability to extend our touch vicariously through our smartphones and touch-enabled devices. IBM believes that future implementations may allow consumers to feel fabric from a piece of clothing, turning our touch-enabled devices "...into tools for natural and intuitive interaction with the world around us.". For more information on the rest of the innovations of IBM's "5 in 5", do head over to this link.
