Well there is plenty of depressing news out there, two recent tech articles did catch my attention:
- ‘Green Brain’ project to create an autonomous flying robot with a honey bee brain: It looks like the very first step on the path to uploading is being researched and hopefully will be undertaken soon. Pretty exciting stuff if it pans out at all. Hopefully this puts/keeps us on track for some 2020 Lobster uploads and humans not terribly long after.
- Microsoft’s Digits hand-gesture sensor bracelet detailed: Might be the input answer to Google Glass’s new display. Hopefully with some work we can be silent messeging each other all the time anywhere with out cool hip new Google Glasses and Microsoft bracelts.
So yeah, a little more sci-fi touching down in 2012. The future marches on, or we march on into it.
