Was listening to a podcast with Elon musk where he is hopeful by version 10 of neuralink we will be symbiotic with AI sounds absolutely class sign me up.The microchip thing is the most mental theory and it seems to be building attention rather than dying. If someone had invented a power source, processor, 5G transmitter, GPS locator or a ‘live lab’ able to do real time chemical analysis of your blood and make any one of these things so microscopic they could not be seen, it would be nobel prize or some other major award time. To have invented all of these, each area representing a quantum leap in technology and put them together in a single package, would be incredible, especially as they have kept it and any build up research quiet.
I’ve said for years that the next major personal tech breakthrough for first world countries, would be something that does that instant analysis. Get a beep saying your potassium or salt levels are low, graph cholesterol rising etc. It would be a huge benefit to general health, and likely stop annoying headaches, those days you feel a bit crappy etc.
For the third word, there has been research into micro labs. In many remote locations (or refugee camps), you dont have the benefit of loads of consultants and big hospital lab. They want to be able to stick some blood or spit into a machine and screen for major diseases. Some countries have shown an interest in having this at borders for disease control (talked about long before covid).
If you could make something like this, even at the size of a tin of beans, you would make an absolute fortune.
How anyone can look at tech trends and think such an amazing microscopic device has been constructed and then we needed to fake a global pandemic to sneak it into people, is beyond me. Invent it, win major awards, then sell it for a fortune, Shops will struggle to keep it in stock. No need to trick people.
Loonies, the lot of them.
Puts a great argument that we already are symbiotic with our phones the draw back being our thumbs limiting the input data rate.
