“At the pace at which technology changes, it’s not inconceivable to think that in a 20-year time frame everything in a cell phone could be put into a grain of rice. That could be put into your head in a minimally invasive way, and would be able to perform the computations necessary to be a really effective brain-computer interface.” MIT Tech Review describes the possible future of a more technological you with some help from a neurosurgeon who wants to connect you to the internet with a brain implant (which would give a whole new meaning to brain freeze). That might seem far-fetched. But consider that your mind (with a little help from social media and phone notifications) is basically already connected to the internet. At least having something the size of grain of rice inserted into your brain is an improvement on the future envisioned by my old NextDraft logo
