To a mall near you.
The advent of the 802.11n card for wireless communication from your laptop gave me pause for thought one day.
I was listening to Rush Limbaugh describe his coclear implant (without it he's quite deaf) and it hit me. We have the ability to create neuronic interfaces with computer chips and very small communication devices that are capable of carrying audio and video in a streaming format for hundreds of yards. We have software capable of voice recognition. We have software capable of translation between languages. This will be where we will create for ourselves the dream of telepathic communication. I predict that the first crude telepathic devices will hit the market within 10 years of my posting this blog.
