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.

First of all, voice was only mentioned as an alternative to brainwaves, so I don't see why you are mentioning just that. Secondly, many things require lots of clicks to do by using a hand, but it can be done instantly with a thought. Because the thought doesn't ask the computer to "click an icon", as the finger would do, but it actually carries out full actions. So if I want to incorporate a bicycle in my CGI scene or 2D pic, I simply think it. I transmit the mind picture to the app and the app figures out how to create it and display it. Using the hand to actually design such a thing in 3D, it can take about 3 days if it's to be done properly.
