Lookin forward to this tech in a decade or 2. Luckily im young enough that i probably wont be dead by then.

Now find an article about cars that drive themselves because between cell phones and eyeball computers, the drivers of the future aren't ever going to be looking at the road. I love these techno-gizmos but they worry me sometimes.
It used to be that when I walked through the park and saw someone gesticulating and talking to thin air, I knew they were a little off kilter but now I don't know if they are borderline psychotic or just using their bluetooth cellphone earpiece. What will it mean in the future when you see someone sitting with a blank stare sort of nodding and shaking their head? Quietly going crazy or reading their email on their contact lens screen?
