Re: Time for some truly revolutionary GUIs?

July 10, 2013 the Navy completed Aircraft Carrier Qualifications on the X47B autonomous attack aircraft. The parameters of the qualifications were to give the X47B mission instructions. The X47B was launched and than the experimental attack aircraft autonomously carried out the mission and returned to the George HW Bush Aircraft Carrier and landed autonomously, which ushered in a huge advance in robotics controlled exclusively by the on board computer. What this suggests is that computers and robotic devices have advanced to a level much greater then we are aware, making it very likely that we are close to having access to a computer that can carry on a conversation with us and at that point the user interface is going to be completely different.
