Some tech for 2020

In between watching the bushfire catastrophe unfold in real time, fire proofing my own block as much as possible, and translating one of my how-to books into blog posts, I don’t have the energy for anything creative so…

Here’s a future focused video clip that looks at ten of the most interesting tech breakthroughs likely to become mainstream in the near future:

If you’re in the cold, stay warm. If you’re suffering from the heat and smoke and ash…stay safe.

Is this the precursor to Innerscape?

I know you’re not supposed to blow your own trumpet but read this:

“…a private company called Paradromics is developing a cortical interface that uses arrays of microwire electrodes to record and stimulate clusters of neurons…”

“..A Columbia University team aims to develop a non-penetrating bioelectric interface that can transmit stimuli directly into the visual cortex…”

Those are just two projects being funded by DARPA which stands for ‘The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’. DARPA is an …’agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military’.

‘DARPA-funded projects have provided significant technologies that influenced many non-military fields, such as computer networking and the basis for the modern Internet, and graphical user interfaces in information technology.’

No one’s come up with Kenneth’s ’embalming fluid’ interface yet, so for once I’m ahead of the game. God I love science fiction!
