There’s an interesting discussion on Slashdot about this article, Laser vision offers new insights. This technology could revolutionize how we use computers. From what I read, it makes wearable computers much more of a reality. You can see the computer screen (or any other display) hanging in the air in front of you. There are a LOT of science fiction stories that use that technology.
Speaking of wearable technology, I think Peter Hamilton is one of the best science fiction authors when it comes to imagining how biotech might change our lives. There’s a quote from one of the reviewers on Amazon that says I “wish I lived in Hamilton’s imagination.” Sometimes you really feel that when you are reading his books.
