CNN is a little off with their vision here, 75 years is a wide birth for this kind of a “predicition” this type of technology already exists, just not in a mass production capacity, and mind control programs involving this technology are already happening.
A new CNN article predicts that within 75 years people will have embedded microchips within their brain that will allow their behavior to be controlled by a third party. The story, entitled Smartphone of the future will be in your brain, offers a semi-satirical look at transhumanism and the idea of humans becoming part cyborg by having communications devices implanted in their body.
Predicting first the widespread popularity of wearable smartphones, already in production by Google, the article goes on to forecast how humans will communicate by the end of the century.
“Technology takes a huge leap in 75 years. Microchip can be installed directly in the user’s brain. Apple, along with a handful of companies, makes these chips. Thoughts connect instantly when people dial to “call” each other”. “But there’s one downside: “Advertisements” can occasionally control the user’s behavior because of an impossible-to-resolve glitch. If a user encounters this glitch — a 1 in a billion probability — every piece of data that his brain delivers is uploaded to companies’ servers so that they may “serve customers better.”
People like inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil don’t think we’ll have to wait 75 years to see smartphones implanted in the brain. He sees this coming to pass within just 20 years.By 2019, Kurzweil forecasts that wearable smartphones will be all the rage and that by 2029, computers and cellphones will now be implanted in people’s eyes and ears, creating a “human underclass” that is viewed as backwards and unproductive because it refuses to acquiesce to the singularity.
