A little dose of technological optimism

By 2015, your mobile phone will project a 3-D image of anyone who calls and your laptop will be powered by kinetic energy. Also, computer programs will tell you when and where traffic jams will take place, sensors in cars and phones will generate environmental information, and cities will be powered by the heat thrown off by computer servers.

“In an era when pessimism is the new black, a little dose of technological optimism is not a bad thing”
A must read article from Bloomberg.
