Today, with the aid of countless charts tracking the exponential growth of technology over the past 150 years, Kurzweil explained gaming in the year 2029. And no, we're not "drinking the Kool-Aid." Instead we've opted to siphon gallons of the stuff intravenously into our bloodstream.

According to Kurzweil's estimates, in 2029 a $1,000 computer will be 1,000 times more powerful than the human brain. But instead of these systems mocking us atonomously, they will be miniaturized (via nanotechnology) and fused directly to the neural connections in your brain. We will no longer be limited by polygons or advanced lighting techniques because the resolution you see will be the maximum resolution your brain is capable of seeing. Think of it less as "SkyNet is coming to get you" than "you are SkyNet."

But if 2029 is a few years too far away, try 2010 on for size. At this time, Kurzweil explains, "computers disappear." Where did they go? Into things like clothing and glasses. Images won't be viewed from screens, but written directly onto our retinas for full A/V immersion "early" in the next decade. The boundaries between reality and "virtual" reality will blur as we're always connected to the internet at high speeds. And until we develop clear system to designate each level of interaction, ""real reality's going to continue to be a little irksome."

Damn that irksome reality.


That soon?

but i like my computer. and personally, i don't like the idea of the human equivalent of the blue screen of infinite doom which makes us reboot the system from scratch. who knows, we could be reduced to gibbering vegetables

We could go and live on the moon now, the question is this. Who is going to shell out all the money to get all the stuff we need there to do it there (goddamn economics).

No way that'll happen in 2 years. We may develop the technology that will eventually eliminate computers, but economically, there's no way the prices will be anywhere near low enough to fit the consumer's demand in 2010.

i highly doubt that a comp is going to be 1000 times better than our brains, because aren't we only using like 10 percent of our brains. So if we can't even harness our own brains, no way we could create a computer that can harness 1000 times what we can.

theres my 2 cents
