As reported, "of the 147 predictions that Kurzweil has made since the 1990s, fully 115 of them have turned out to be correct, and another 12 have turned out to be "essentially correct" (off by a year or two), giving his predictions a stunning 86% accuracy rate."
"In the 2030s," said Ray, "we are going to send nano-robots into the brain (via capillaries) that will provide full immersion virtual reality from within the nervous system and will connect our neocortex to the cloud. Just like how we can wirelessly expand the power of our smartphones 10,000-fold in the cloud today, we'll be able to expand our neocortex in the cloud."

~ Google on the Brain: the ability to "know" anything you desire, at the moment you want to know it.
~ Scalable Intelligence: you'll be able to scale up the computational power of your brain on demand, 10x or 1,000x
~ Living in the Virtual World: If our brains can truly connect at high bandwidth, you will be able to bypass our current sensory organs (eyes, ears, touch) to the point where brain's perception of reality can be driven completely by a gaming engine — a virtual world.
~ Extended Immune System: nanorobots will be able to communicate wirelessly, download software when new pathogens arrives, and attack cancer, cancer stem cells, bacteria, viruses, and all the disease agents.
~ Downloadable Expertise: Think "The Matrix".... need I say more?

Kurzweil always tactically brushes over the question of ethics when pressed. I don't know if he's so blinded in his mission or if he simply doesn't care enough to fully consider the potential dangers of the things he wants to see come to fruition. He's pretty much a mad scientist with a blank cheque working for a corporation that supersedes government. Science without ethics is insanity.
