Ray Kurzweil is shaking up our idea of what will be with his amazing predictions about the future of computing – a future he thinks will soon lead to the emergence of computers so small and powerful they’ll drive our own thinking processes from within. Speaking to the gaming conference today Kurzweil noted that the accelerating advances in computer technology will soon allow fully immersive virtual reality experiences which will be coming to a body near you. Cool.
Wow. Nanotube researchers have created a microscopic, functional radio. Science Daily reports. I had no idea how far this research has progressed and it seems like it won’t be long before we see a lot of practical applications for this amazing technology. Initially this will probably be in commercial applications like phones and computers, but nanotechnology, combined with conscious computing, is likely to lie at the heart of the most provocative changes humankind will ever see – where technology will enhance our feeble human capabilities in many ways. It’s going to be amazing, and it’s already starting to happen.
