A Message from the Future
In this must-read article, MIS, from Australia, asserts than in 10 to 15 years, we'll be unable to use today's technologies to build electronic devices always smaller and more powerful. Instead, three disruptive technologies will converge and deeply change our lives: nanotechnology, sensors and wireless technology.

The author explains how this will influence molecular computing or quantum information processing. She also describes future advances in robotics, including nanobots. And the transportation industry will welcome the arrival of skycars, which are under development today. But will we travel anymore when holographic videoconferencing tools are available?

Please take a moment to check this fascinating article or read this summary for selected excerpts and to discover where you can buy a skycar today.

IIII dunno about all that. I've paid attention for most of my life to issues relating to aircars and holography and robotics, and believe me I'd love to see them, if only to create a world like that in Neal Stephenson's THE DIAMOND AGE. But the real world has a knack for making sure these sorts of things either never come into being or do in far less potent forms than are imagined. I really hope I'm proven wrong about this, but I don't expect to be.
