Dental hygiene would improve. I came up with an idea of with a mouth guard or some other type of application of a paste that grows onto the tooth a harder enamel & very quickly.
I saw the dentist the other day and it came up subliminally with all the staff asking about it. Worried about people changing and needing less supply and demand with dentists, peoples costs of educating, but I assured them people would still need a checkup and fixing.

Let's assume that this monstrosity really will hit the market next year (because in all probability it won't). What immediate, practical applications are there for having such advanced hardware/software on a mobile device? These guys are gonna be hard-pressed to prove to consumers that their AI-driven operating system is anything more than a slightly more intelligent, much more obnoxious Siri. They'll also have to explain why the ridiculous specs (and implicit price tag) required to run said software are more than premature incremental upgrades that will be industry-standard in a few years' time anyway, but that they will make a pronounced difference in how the user interacts with their device.

I know all of that is Sales Training Talk 101, but with an outlandish product like this, such typically mundane considerations suddenly become relevant and intriguing, not least because this phone potentially offers a glimpse of what's waiting for us further down the line, and foments debate on the direction consumer device evolution is taking (i.e. hardware upgrades vs. new features).

The phone and the who ever is makin it and the OS can be shit all it wants. If enough phones go for this power level eventually some one will multithread a game on it. To say an octo core is useless becasue no one multi threads that much is stupid. Bet the same was said about quad cores when dual cores were around. But guess what, that shit wasn't multithread city either.

And ten years later, games still have one major thread with a few smaller ones offloaded on to other cores with diminishing returns for every core you add.

Back then they said quad core would be good for specific things where they can be multi threaded they were and are to this day. But it's been 9 years since the core 2 quad first came out and I'm still running 4 physical cores on my system. Had 6 with hyperthreading once, good for hosting 10 person servers and playing games at the same time but not much else really.

The phone in OP probably will be a thing, for perspective the samsung S7 runs an 8 core snapdragon 820 (the current version of this phone) with 4 gig of RAM.

This thing will be about $4k worth of hardware on release. And within a year it'll be more like $400. It's not space age tech, it's just the next generation top end consumer phone with a bit more RAM and storage space.

We sorta of have lightsaber fighting already in the form of tournament kendo, though they treat them like real swords with a single cutting edge. Lightsaber fighting can be different as it's basically a long baton that insta kills. so a shinai fits the bill for practise lightsaber fighting sans the unknown balance of a beam sword.

Why redesign the wheel? Brain emulation is always talked about in terms of making computers fast enough to do the job. Why not go with the design nature has already had such success with?

We've talked about replacing the brain one neuron at a time with artificial neurons that wont degenerate over time. The easier (and more controversial) way to use an artificial neuron technology though is to instead make a reconstruction of the subjects brain. The incredible sophistication levels needed for nanobots to replace neurons in a living subject is a long way off, if in fact that kind of control will ever be possible. The technology to put together a microscopic replication of a 1:1 resolution brain scan however is well within reach.

A subject could wear a high precision portable EECG device for whatever period turns out to be appropriate, plus get sessions of brain MRIs. After the patients death their brain can be scanned to generate an exact map of every brain cell and it's place in the connectome. This model then serves as the blueprint for the construction of a brain out of artificially created cells. These cells are connected in an exact copy of the connectome and also directly to a Brain Computer Interface. The data from the brain scanning is used to tune each neurons firing rate and tolerances as it is put into place.

The scanning and construction technology to do this is within sight now. This is the obvious solution to whole brain emulation; to emulate the whole brain. Those who go through the process will become beings with nearly unlimited potential. Constructed with artificial materials and carefully encased the brains would be effectively immortal. Encased with them a computer could be directly connected. This will allow emulated people to be connect with artificial bodies or to virtual/augmented reality environments. These bodies can be anything from replicas of people and animals, to machinery and spacecraft. Machinery or highly unusual body types can be controlled by using a virtual reality environment where the person has a simulated human body and uses simulated controls around them,

The use of artificial connections will increase the speed of communication between neurons to almost the speed of light. Emulated people will perceive, think and act at greater speeds than the current biological hardware is physically capable of.

We will surely learn to create new additions to the brain as well. Combinations of artificial neurons and miniature computers can be used to create new brain regions with new abilities.

The speed of travel between the stars could be increased to the speed of light for emulated people. All the needed data can easily be collected by the BCI and transmitted to the destination where another brain is constructed, exactly the same.
The person might decide to shutdown the original brain and leave it in storage on the planet they are leaving. Alternatively the original brain could remain active, with two copies of the person active at once, potentially merging back together again later.

No doubt this idea will be controversial. Many people are concerned with the fact that a whole brain emulation will be a copy rather than a direct continuation of them. Personally I'm not sure if it matters. What does matter is our freedom to choose our own way. Whatever peoples positions are on this technology, they should respect other peoples right to make their own decision about embracing it.

Game streaming is something you can do today. Valve, Sony and Microsoft all have popular solutions for it, and Google is working on a new one. It's not that great, latency is pretty rough so you can forget about anything multiplayer/action based. Putting everything into the cloud is fashionable nowadays, but when latency is a factor nothing will ever beat on-site processing.

There's been a proliferation of cyberpunk content and discussion lately, possibly a response to Internet 2.0 and the erosion of privacy and anonymity, and personal rights. I thought I'd drop a bunch of links for anyone who wants to get their cyber on. Mirrorshades obligatory from this point on.

>>Researchers have found a way to convert nanoparticle-coated microscopic beads into lasers smaller than red blood cells. These microlasers, which convert infrared light into light at higher frequencies, are among the smallest continuously emitting lasers of their kind ever reported and can constantly and stably emit light for hours at a time, even when submerged in biological fluids such as blood serum.

Small enough to excite individual neurons, which is one of the main use cases. This is actually a huge breakthrough and I'm surprised it's not getting more coverage in the science press. The ability to electrically measure or excite an individual cell is a game changer.

In other miniaturization news, did you know there is now a desktop sized particle accelerator in operation? Think of the possibilities hand-held particle accelerators would unlock. Who will win the race to emit the most micronized beams of radiation directly into your soft fleshy "human" tissues?

Chargin mah lazer part 2: now with more lazer
So this is a pretty old article, but it got me to thinking. So there's this NASA award out now for a system that can be sent to mars and produce rocket fuel automatically without any other input.

At first, I was thinking about that thing I mentioned in the other thread, about sequestering carbon by turning it into sugar batteries. In model rocketry there are these things called sugar rockets, so I was thinking that could be a fuel, but the problem is the propellant isn't very efficient for its weight and is prone to uneven burns (meaning, explosions.) And you would also need the probe or whatever to mechanically adept enough to manage storing a solid propellant. So, big problems.

But then I thought about this laser. All you would need would be a probe with a solar collector, UV laser, a heat exchanger, and a collapsible fuel bladder. I would think you would choose a polar landing site to mitigate the energy costs of cryogenic storage. You siphon in Martian CO2, UV laser it to free O2, and cool it to form liquid oxygen, which while primarily used as an oxidizer in rocket fuel, as far as I know could also be used as the primary propellant, especially since Mars surface G is about 40% of earth.

The biggest problem I think is keeping the fuel tank cold enough long enough to keep oxygen liquid. I was thinking it would be easier to keep it cool underground, but then you'd have to bring in something that could drill out a million liters worth of Martian soil, hoping to create an air-tight chasm. If it could even work, I think it would blow up the weight budget. What do you guys think?

Reading current trends, this is what I see as most likely for the future of Energy production in the world:

It is possible to turn solar energy into either jet fuel or liquid ammonia. The former captures carbon from the atmosphere in the process but puts it back once it is burned so it is carbon neutral. The latter process produces a fuel which does not contain any carbon and therefore is also carbon neutral. Both fuels can be used to power fuel cells and jet fuel can also be burned to power generators. Both fuels already have the infrastructure designed to transport them and can be scaled up easily.

Certain areas on the planet are exposed to more solar irradiance than others (deserts mostly) and they are ideal locations for solar plants. The problem with that is that it would be very expensive to run power transmission lines from places with high solar irradiance to places that need the power, and you would also lose some power because it's inefficient to transfer power over long distances using electrical wire. Converting the solar energy into liquid fuel on site that can be shipped anywhere solves this problem. Areas that have lots of cheap land with high solar irradiance that is near traditional shipping lanes will become major hubs to produce carbon neutral liquid fuels to power fuel cells. What's really cool is that many of the major fossil fuel producing countries in the Middle East actually fit these criteria perfectly. They will be perfectly situated to move into this industry once it opens up and becomes commonplace.

I think that the solar plants themselves will adopt concentrated solar rather than photovoltaic because the materials will be cheaper as it just uses mirrors which can be cheaply mass produced. Systems using molten salts would probably not be needed as they could just churn out as much fuel as possible during the daylight hours and ignore dark hours meaning that the technology for this already exists today and can simply be scaled up.

The only thing that could kill this is intellectual property rights. I have a suspicion that some of the companies funding the research into fuel cell breakthroughs actually get their money from fossil fuels and they're funding the research in order to get the patents so they can stop them from ever being used. I've seen big breakthroughs go nowhere. This is the same thing they do in the pharmaceutical industry. Promising research is funded only so that it can be locked in a drawer never to see the light of day. Scientists go in thinking they're going to make a difference only to find no one cares about their breakthrough because it could potentially actually cure diseases that they want to just "treat". Oh well, at the moment I remain optimistic that this will be implemented within the next two decades at the very latest. Our days of relying on oil are over because we realize it's starting to fuck with the climate.

nigga, do you even know what batteries are made out of? Not only are they highly combustible they're also pressurized and have exploded many times before. We also use gasoline to power our cars and appliances and you don't see people freaking out because it can be combusted, in fact that's kind of the whole point. Fuel cells also don't combust it so you can just build them in a sturdy enclosure to make sure the fuel doesn't leak out.

>>pulling weight about fucking batteries

>>fuel cells don't combust
>>"make sure" the fuel doesn't leak out
You know what place they really, really "make sure" fuel doesn't leak out? Rocket fuel tanks. You know the number of times rocket fuel tanks have failed? Not zero.
Look, no one is denying jet fuel is more energy dense than batteries or sugar, by about 2000x. And while I admit it is pretty cool we can find ways to get energy out of hydrocarbons without combusting them, that doesn't change the fact that they are volatile, toxic fossil fuels that are infinitely more dangerous when an inevitable failure does happen than even highly explosive lithium batteries (like lithium itself is anything but stone-age by the standard of cutting edge battery tech.)

I mean, I guess its good to have the option to use fossil fuels in a slightly less destructive way, but is that the direction we really want to go? Why don't we use gasoline to power robots right now, then?

Due to the KKK, it is illegal to wear a mask in public or anything that intentionally hides your identity. At least it almost every state in the US. Elsewhere it may be different.

Also, good luck convincing the American public to accept it. The Left sees the KKK as cowards too afraid to show their face and the Right sees Antifa as cowards too afraid to show their face. Many people I've spoken with say that if you have to hide your face for your cause, you're up to no good.

It is the basic equivalent of, "If you've got nothing to hide, You've nothing to fear." But since we're here on 420chan, we're all scumbags pretty high on the list for persecution and all. Kirtaner is a shill and whatnot, working for big hentai and the dea.

It was the first art style I think I really fell in love with as a teen. I was actually fairly obsessive with it, not because I agree with any of its normative claims, but because I thought the pieces were beautiful, and I found the ideology fascinating.

It's worth considering how the futurists were really sort of taking the nature focus of the romantics, and inverting, or at least refocusing/distorting, it. The romantics thought that the enlightenment had put too much focus on science/reason transcending natural boundaries; instead, they saw people as part of nature. In that way, the perspective of the romantics was almost sort of a precursor to deep ecology. The gothic romantics focused on showing the horrors of trying to break away from nature, through demonstrating perversions like Frankenstein's monster.

The futurists had this same focus on their environment. The difference was, they reasoned that their environment wasn't forests or valleys; it was cities, factories, and technology. This artificial environment favored innovation like the enlightenment, but they celebrated the extremities of the environment those technological innovations were creating - the extreme speeds, increased violence, bright lights... all quite overwhelming.

This was reflected in the political ideologies that the futurists adopted, for better and worse. Early on they liked the idea of revolution and progress, so most were socialists, and a few were anarchists. However, most of the futurists were patriotically Italian, so when Mussolini rose to prominence, most flipped and became devout fascists. A few did remain left wing and staunchly anti-fascist, though.

The paintings the movement produced are gorgeous. The cubist influence is obvious, with colors acting like refracted light. It's all pretty dazzling. The focus on movement is quite taking as well.

To perhaps point out the obvious, futurism's most notable descendants are cyberpunk literature and industrial music. However, they completely reject the romanticism of the original movement, as well they should. Instead, they point the decay and depravity that our obsession with tech leads to. Cyberpunk almost always emphasizes the loss of humanity in futuristic urban settings, as with things like Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell. Some early industrial groups emphasized urban decay, like Einstürzende Neubauten and Test Dept, while others focused on the sheer horrors that tech had caused in the 20th century, like Throbbing Gristle.

So these brilliant motherfuckers have actually tested the first successful use of a nanomachine used medically in vivo. Oh, and it's also a cancer treatment that is able to release devascularizing drug (or theoretically any drug payload) directly into tumors the nanomachines distinguish from healthy tissue on their own.

They're basically sheets of DNA that have been arranged into tubes, that fold up to hold the drug and open under certain conditions. With other recent advances in nanomachines like the 'gold walker' nanoscale chicken-bot that can walk on gold sheets, and others, it seems like the age of (Gen 1) nanotech is finally upon us!

What's the first drug *you* would put into a DNA nanotube and blast into your tissues? (one possible application of such bots could be assisting drugs which normally can't cross the BBB cross it, so the possibilities are endless)

We definitely need those artificial neurons if we want immortality to be within reach. Biological things are just so entropic. Futuristic though, we'd need to include things like organelle function, indirect signalling and so many other "background" and esoteric processes it would be restricted to the most straightforward and isolated cells types at first. A massive undertaking for a lazy guy like myself

Wait a minute you could literally just put dopamine in those things couldn't you? What are the authorities going to do, raid my stash of nu-meth?
