Wacky Tech

I DON’T get to do this often, so bear with me on this. I just need to let out a few sentiments in my head. This may not even be tech related, or it may be.

I'm writing this on my iPhone at a coffee shop in a mall while charging it with a powerbank. Why can't we have "though-connectors" to our smart phones? I think it will be just so cool is we can somehow "tether" brain to our smartphones or devices and start "writing" something without thoughts and seeing things get put down on screen without so much touchin’ the screen. We could churn up so many writings for sure.

And not just with the writing. The calendar will be so great with this! Imagine not having to fumble with your device to check for the next appointment. Your device will communicate with your brain directly and remind your about the your next appointment.

Here's something else - powering up your device. What if there was a way that we can connect wirelessly our bodies to our devices and have our bodies power up our devices? No more powerbanks. No more "battery empty" episodes. The only time you run out of power is the time your body needs to physically shut down; or something like that. Think hybrid cars. Devices have standby battery while being constantly fueled by our physical bodies.

If that were in place, I think it will encourage everyone to better take care of their bodies. The better your body converts food into fuel and burns it, the better or longer your body can fuel your devices. It sounds so mecha, yeah?

But, of course, we all have the option to not do these things. Let's just say it's some sort of a meta-human enhancement. Rise of the machines? Utopian? It sounds so mutant-y, noh?

Well, in the end, one person comes to mind while I was writing this – Tony Stark.

I'll explain next week.
