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.

The same way the technology currently exists where people can control UI using such an interface. Follow the links, watch the video.

I've seen those videos and countless more like them. They just highlight my point that these kits need to be pre-populated with a map of the users pathways, which is something that can only be done on a command by command process. This is very time consuming and significantly reduces the power of these devices to far below what your expectations are.

So your reply doesn't address my criticisms in the slightest.
