Graphics, User Interfaces Within the last few days we read the news about Apple's Siri AI personal assistant, and about a brain implant that lets monkeys control virtual limps & feel virtual objects. I believe that if someone is to also combine a few more technologies (e.g. high-res eyeware, appropriate operating system changes), we will be looking at the next user interface revolution, after the inventions of the computer mouse and touch interfaces.

Humans already have a spectacularly efficient brain/machine interface. It is called the hand. The hand provides spatial (proprioception) and tactile feedback, It is semi-autonomous with training.

Aviation has avoided using voice control because it is extremely inefficient, imprecise and slow compared with using the hand.

Music players, phones and tablets are already causing significantly higher rates of vehicular accidents and pedestrian deaths. This is because the human brain has virtually no ability to multi-task.
