Reading in 100 years

July 21, 2009

Google Books are running a competition which asked for a fifty word entry describing how we will read in one hundred years. The question prompted this response.

Reading will be a fully immersive experience. There will be no printed word or computer screen. We will be directly connected to the internet through our neural interfaces. The words will pass before our mind’s eye still allowing our imaginations to render the people and places about which we read.
