20 years ago Intel stated that people would be carrying around computer around present day, they said we wouldn't need to, they were wrong. Now people are saying that in less then a decade we won't have to carry around computers, but where will they be if this is the case? In your brain. Today you control the computer and it obeys to every command it receives. Tomorrow, you are the computer, looking up information with just the power of your mind surfing the web with just the shire thought of anything, but, what are the consequences of a media lifestyle like this. So recently some scientists have been spending millions of dollars on neural implant testing mostly on rats, apes, etc. Now a lot of corporations have been following their work to see where it would go from the progress they have made so far. They say they this implant can be used to by thought, design almost anything and have it become projected in reality on a computer screen. Of course this tech is years away but it will soon be a reality, but of course it's bound to be buggy right off the bat and that may lead to issues. Issues that may cause the brain to malfunction and lead to motor issues, vocal problems, etc. and maybe even death. Then theirs the other side of the story, the public use of a implant like this. Google believes that with their own version of a brain implant, people can look up anything with just the sheer thought of something. “You’ll be able to download every history book ever written. We’ll put it on the chip and you will instantly be smarter than every history professor in the country.” (Eric Schmidt para 4) This including science, math, art, english, anything, all at the power of your mind. Now this says two things, one their is going to b... ... middle of paper ... ...r about myself if I didn't have a small chip surgically places in my head that could very well cause issues that are irreversible.
