Scientists at Trinity College, Dublin have apparently developed a couch which can tell who’s sitting on it by determining their weight.

‘So far, the sofa can only deliver a personalized greeting to the person who plops down on it, but researcher Mads Haahr says students in his distributed-systems group envision a day when it will do a lot more: switch on household appliances, set the temperature in a room based on an individual’s comfort level or even prompt the stereo to play the style of music that whomever is sitting prefers.’

Insert large mother-in-law joke here.
