An excellent example of crowd funding revolutionising technological advancement. No longer is new technology limited to those wealthy enough.
The courts once again let the public down on right to die, saying the matter should be decided by Parliament. Of course, with Parliament including a bunch of unelected peers who can’t even manage to drag themselves out of the 18th century over equal marriage, it’s completely ridiculous to throw this issue, clearly supported by the public, back to the unrepresentative legislature.
This article really speaks to my excitement at what technology can bring to our everyday lives. People know the Star Trek concept of saying "computer" and having it complete a task. The Moto X does exactly that. Obviously it’s nowhere near those sci-fi heights but remember for a second the state of technology ten years ago. Compare that to the advancements now, including Moto X. Now extrapolate that to ten years into the future and the scenarios this article suggests seem like a doddle. "OK Google Now, transport me to the pub."
