You can imagine government education ministers sitting with calculators working out the savings of schooling children at home with one teacher, rather than thousands. Turning a classroom of one into a classroom of a million – all with one teacher!

When the great day that Nano-Tech does get involved, we are likely to see advancements on the existing tech to include contact lenses that can receive television and computer games.

It isn’t cheap, but cloned versions of yourself are now available for selection, so that you can transfer your memories and intelligence to a whole new you.
Of course, this is the stuff of science fiction isn’t it?
Well, actually, no. If you have a look at the video you can get all the detail you need on what almost all futurists expect to be coming our way this century.

To maintain their market leader status they may have to venture into the restricted lab areas, pass the umpteen security doors, tap in the secret code and collect that secret technology they were hoping to release into the public domain, earlier than they had anticipated.
We wait with baited breath.
