It's all good

All technology has a downside and people have been afraid of it all through the years, hand wringing about the potential abuse of the technology. Everything from Caller ID to Nuclear Power.

But overall, the upsides from these technologies far outweigh the downside and that will be the case with inSyte.

What other sorts of things could we do with inSyte? (3)

Of course, hacking happens today, every day. But it’s your computer or smart phone that’s getting hacked. Not your mind.

You have to have a way to turn it all off.

Skype with avatars – so now someone virtually flirts with you and they look like Marilyn Monroe and you look like Clint Eastwood. Who knows what you both really look like.

Who cares?

Think of a hydraulic suit, the kind used in the military. You slim it down so that being paralyzed is not something you would necessarily notice.

So man is melded with machine.

And inSyte does the same for the mind. Blindness? A thing of the past. People can see through a camera smaller than a button in resolution that exceeds natural sight because it includes infrared, a larger spectrum of light becomes visible.

So long flashlights.

This is all possible in 10 to 20 years. What about within 50 years? 100 years?

At what point does the machine take over?
