WireFree WireFree The Birth of the Borg

"Next step, surely, must be sensors under our skins?"

From sensors under the skin we will move on to GPS receivers and cellphones under the skin. Social Network Technologies will provide the communication medium with the Collective. Before you know it we will have witnessed the Birth and Evolution of "The Borg" -

Neil Jacobsohn Super shoes measure your performance

Some times the future happens faster than you anticipate! We wrote our MindBullet about super digital shoes in 2014...and Nike has beaten us to the punch.
