It’s the year 2090, and you just woke up. You tap your left temple to stop the alarm buzzing in your head. You roll out of bed and think, What’s the weather? Instantly, the forecast appears in front of your eyes.
Then a notification pops up in the corner of your vision. You blink to open it. It’s a text from your mom: “Breakfast is ready.” “K,” you text back, using only your thoughts.
At breakfast, you wonder what your bestie is up to; suddenly, her social media feed floats before you. You blink twice to like a video of her robot dog, Gigabyte.
How are you doing all this?
Like everyone in the future, you’ve had your smartphone, in the form of a tiny computer chip, implanted in your brain.
