The chip in your arm. Projects the content direct into your brain.
Sounds scary today, but oh man that will be a thing one day. A microchip implanted directly into your arm or brain, sounds fun. Imagine being hacked lol

I'm actually serious, that will be there one day. With the current development? 10 - 20 years and it's there. Implantable Microchips. Not sure if i want that.

That would be terrifying. But awesome. Short of surgery how would they interact with the brain?
Or are we talking about interfacing with nerves, the same way some prosthetics work?

P.S. If we figure out how to send visual signals to the brain, I think Netflix series instead of dreaming would be cool. Wake up having caught up on Disney's fourth reboot of Star Wars and feel refreshed.

Whatever the next big thing is, I predict it will come in seven colors: blue, purple, green, orange, white, violet, and velvety black with blood-red highlights.

Only the last will offer the option of an ebony clock.

Chiplets and vertical stacking for computers. It is the next big thing now for consumers. The biggest draw right now is the issue of heat generation and adequate dissipation.

It will be the AI stuff, but we don’t even do a moderate job with IOT. I have no hope for our understanding of true AI.
