I was perusing the May 2007 AARP Bulletin addressed to me (I’ll pause while you recover from your astonishment) and found the following predictions: “We won’t have laptops or cell phones. We’ll wear a communications center/intelligent assistant as a headband. Instead of a screen, it will have direct coupling into the right side of the brain.” Stuart Wolf, physicist and techno scout, University of Virginia.
“Computing power will be everywhere. Sensors in your car will monitor your health while you drive. Task-based learning will enable you to reinvent yourself, your career every few years.” Joe Coughlin, director, MIT AgeLab
I wonder what periodicals aimed at people in their teens and twenties are telling them!?
