It's hard to believe that the Cybertecture Mirror by Hong Kong-based founder James Law is actually real.
ARMONK, N.Y., - 18 Aug 2011: Today, IBM (NYSE: IBM ) researchers unveiled a new generation of experimental computer chips designed to emulate the brain’s abilities for perception, action and cognition. The technology could yield many orders of magnitude less power consumption and space than used in today’s computers. In a sharp departure from traditional concepts in designing and building computers, IBM’s first neurosynaptic computing chips recreate the phenomena between spiking neurons and synapses in biological systems, such as the brain, through advanced algorithms and silicon circuitry.
In 2020 We Can Wear Sony Computers On Our Wrist Our present need for internet connectivity is so profound that secondary devices like the Nextep Computer are bound to happen. Developed to be worn as a bracelet, this computer concept is constructed out of a flexible OLED touchscreen. Earmarked for the year 2020, features like a holographic projector (for screen), pull-out extra keyboard panels and social networking compatibility, make the concept plausible. Ten years from now is not too far away, so how many of you think we’d be buying such gadgets?
I think some of the stuff is lovely - like the solar system coming out of the TV, but most of it just creeps me out. I don't want everything to be on glass, it just makes everything less tangible and less personal, almost cold. I like having curtains up to my windows, I like cooking on a gas hob, I like reading from a real book, and I like shopping for clothes by looking around the shop and browsing, not by watching them all move about on a screen. Moreover, where will it go from here - there are advances in technology which are, in my opinion, unnecessary, almost making life too easy and teaching us to be lazy. Next thing you know it will be okay not to turn up to work in a morning because you can just video in; if you're ill then fair enough, but really, just because you can't be bothered? This is wrong.
