What's going to replace the internet?

Postby Crazyirishman on Sun Dec 09, 2012 8:38 pm

As I've been reading various books and articles, I've noticed that one things replaces another as the paradigm for communicating thoughts and ideas to a vast group of people in a quick manner. Books were replaced by newspapers, newspapers by the radio, radio by television, and TV to some extent by the internet and social media. So the question I have is what looks like it'll be the next step in communication?

The internet is here to stay. The only thing now is what will replace how we use it. From tabletop computers to laptops to phones to tablets. All of the things listed as being replaced are now on the internet. The next logical step though is to have better internet and easier ways to access it.
3D and holographic televisions with super HD will be the norm in a few years so the internet and the information we gather will have to keep up with that.

also I doubt any of us plebs could even fathom what could replace the internet. Probably some wireless chip that gets implanted into our brain that lets us communicate with one another/acquire information without any gadgets.

A chip in the brain is a gadget. :mrgreen: But what happens when apple brings out the next chip 6 months later?

My penis will replace the internet. Not only in breadth, but in relevance also.

"Smart Eyglasses"

Postby premio53 on Mon Dec 10, 2012 8:27 am

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/n ... -lens.html

Excerpt:

"Ghent University's centre of microsystems technology has developed a spherical curved LCD display which can be embedded in contact lenses and handle projected images using wireless technology. Unlike previous contact lens displays, which are limited to a few small pixels to make up an image, the new technology allows the whole curved surface of the lens to be used."

One caveat. The greatest danger is governments taking full control of the internet. The idea of taxing internet use is just one way Big Brother can limit its use and don't believe they haven't made plans for that.

Glasses that tap into another dimension?
Interdimensional Communication is the only thing I can fathom would come next.

I, for one, feel that inter-dimensional telepathic pornography glasses would be hilarious.
