I’m impressed how Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt replied to a woman who feared technology would move so fast to a point technology will dehumanize humans by holding up his cellphone and saying it has an off button.  According to Physorg, Eric Schmidt isn’t shying away from saying the future we have imagined all along is coming sooner than we think.  He implied people might be able to visit places without being there — even if people want to go places, they don’t really have to necessary to manually do so as driverless cars will drive them places.  How about the ability to send robots to events and so you might be able to enjoy such events without being there?  Hologram technology to be widely used?  You can see, Eric Schmidt is confirming the idea of having such future might be here sooner than we think!  Hopefully though, just like Eric Schmidt defiantly answered the woman, we all will have an off button for such technologies in the future so the humans will be able to take a break from all things digital and rekindle with mother nature from time to time.
