Once the concept is available then only improvements are needed.
Best statement of ideas and the human race ever. We truly are becoming like the fictional race of the Borg. Someone shoots an idea into the ether,
the net is the latest version, a worker who knows how to implement the idea puts it together. Then the improvements come from the rest of the race
unless it is deemed to be useless...in which case it is then stripped of all useful parts, which are returned to the collective to be used in
Regarding this tech and all other tech I believe that if you see it and you can see the government benefit to using it, then it has been around for a
looong time and is only now being trickled out to us. I proved to myself that the government keeps us (the general public) years behind in the
knowledge of where we truly are technically. I wish I could remember the book that I read when I was 13 so I could list it here. It was a book on
how lasers worked. It was published in 1963. In it, it described a black box that would be available to the general consumer in 1964 that you could
hook up to your television and produce 2d holograms in your living room.
I never saw that device until I was walking through six flags in 1990 and they had a table top game on display that produced 2d holograms on the
surface and were saying that it was "new technology". So the government is the ultimate producer of diminished reality.
