I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and wanted to get the general idea written down. It’s very rough.
One of the next major revolutions in technology will be brain machine interfaces. Specifically an interface with instant thought-access to things like spreadsheets and notepads.
Computers make humans much more productive by providing very rapid access to powerful data-storage and manipulation tools. Those are things our brains just aren’t very good at.
But the keyboard, mouse, and screen are the current bottlenecks for accessing a computer’s tools. A bottleneck that exists even for very fast typists and savvy computer users.
What if you could access a spreadsheet and manipulate data at the speed of thought?
