Obsessed by the improvements of StarTrek and the fourth millennium, while feeling restricted by the limits of today's technology or that boring second law of thermodynamics? Just let your imagination flow - you needn't be Scotty to beam your thoughts in here!

Back in 1996 I devised the concept of a physic calculation card, though I got no way to prove it. Anyway, here my 2 cents about what cards you can plug into your pc in the future.

Time to beat

2012: A chemical processing unit card. That means all games will have real chemical reactions in it. You can get any more realstic or can you! This will be a great boon for chemists. Imagine you can do all your chemical testing on the computer.

2015: An artifical intelligence processing card. One that will emulate the processing of virtual agents and virtual animals. Whether the animal or agent may have existed in real life is not important. Of course it will have some sort of sematic proccessing.

2025: DNA processing card. Forget about building pologons models or using laser scanned models. Forget about boneing, or hair and skin effects... All we do is have a DNA, and the human or animal, whether it ever existed, is created from scratch in virtual reality, simply from a complete DNA sequence or a randomly generated one.

The model is grown from its embroynic stage to the nesecessary timeframe, add in abit of chaos theory, and you can skip through years at a time. Add in blemishes, scars, tattoos, till the human or animal is of the right age for software use.

For inanimate objects they might also have a DNA for them, based on their circuitry or interworkings. Imagine the intricate level of realism down the atomic level. Working in conjuction with the artificial intelligence processing card, they will form the ulitimate thinking virtual opponents, guides, assistances etc.

You can also use this technology for medical purposes... Of course, supported by the physics card and chemical card... You have the ultimate computer simulation. And don't forget your general GPU, which would be called HPU then hologram processing unit.

Of course, by this time holigrams should have become common... And it will be easy to store several petrabyte of data for each DNA sample that is to be used.

Anyway, I consider my physic engine card a phrophet invention back in 1996. So this is really possible. I guess anything can happen in 10 years.

Sleep tight - the future is here in 20 years or so.

Reward: I'd like too see beat the timeline and a free product.
