May 7 - Day 3: Research & Futures

While researchers and select vendors may have access to some of tomorrow's technology, for the most part, the next generation is in the wings. Modern processor densities, performance levels, and communications links allow high-level distributed processing environments to surround us each within our own little electromagnetic bubble. These Personal Area Networks will continue to interface and graft as we become electro-bionoids, providing us with ever-increasing levels of control and information.
