The Mighty Micro

“At what stage will fully automatic, accident-proof road vehicles come on the market? When will children’s dolls or mechanical toys respond to their spoken commands? When will the average wristwatch include a personal identifier chip and memory capable of storing all personal correspondence? How long will it be before the average doctor carries a pocket-size diagnostic aid containing all relevant medical records? When will two-way wrist communicators, with or without video display, be as common as the telephone? At what period will the average child own a portable teaching computer of great power, more knowledgeable, and in certain areas, more intelligent than any human teacher?”
