Have you ever pondered why Information Technology has arrived at this point in world history?? Yes, it’s all part of the advancements in scientific fields that have accelerated over the past few hundred years. Yet I suspect that there is more to it than the inexorable progress of human endeavour.
My contention, in part, is that the present and pending technologies will eventually remind us of what we have always been able to do ourselves.
For example, some rudimentary BrainCaps can already be used to move the cursor on your computer screen; or to turn your TV on. Within five years, they will become the latest form of mobile phone. You will simply transmit your thoughts (and only the ones that you choose to send, hopefully) to another BrainCap.
Around 2025, someone will wake up to the reality that they’ll be able to transmit their thoughts to someone else… without using their braincap.
Farfetched? Hardly. Have a look at the 8-min video that I’ve pasted up the top. It’s an early version of what this US technology group calls ‘The Sixth Sense’. My bind moggles as I ponder the exponential possibilities with these applications.
