video was pretty enjoyable, its been added to my library. some of the stuff i would love to see, some of it has been seen(tesla motors already has a similar dash setup, and are implementing a holographic HUD for the driver).
but there are most certainly a few flaws in their idea of the future.
the scale they are talking about is massive. when you take new tech to a small area and implement it into something useful it flourashes, not every part of the world will react to such a massive change in their work, home, or educational environment. look at Korea for instance, almost everything networking is done through fibre optics, and the change happened in no time at all. in the states, cat-5 is the norm and does not look like its moving very quickly away from it.
the educational tablet is pretty awesome, but i for one am against the smartphone in schools. to easy to cheat yourself from actually learning a subject and quickly finding the short answer. knowledge shouldn't be given to you in your pocket. however, if its a device that simply collects lessons, tasks, etc it would be very useful, would also make the device itself cheaper. seeing as it wouldn't be an ipad, it would be a digital planner programmed to acknowledge the lessons(just had a thought of seniors throwing tablets instead of their hats at graduation). it would have to be strictly enforced as a educational device and not just be something you pick up at bestbuy.
the software would have to be very, very thoroughly tested to the point where it would almost be obsolete. its one thing for a phone to start acting up, and doing stupid things, but when your talking about patients and education, thats immediate grounds for lawsuits. im not sure you could really pull that man power to ensure the stability of such things on such a massive scale. not to mention filters/networks, server population would multiply quite rapidly.
the above is one thing, but something else that you have to consider, is that if this was truly implemented it would have to start from the ground up. not the other way around. the generation that is using touchscreen displays in their doctors office should have been among those that grew up in the classroom with tablets and everything else "made of glass." this means that you have to test and prove the capabilities of the usefulness of the implementations, not saying that is impossible or even hard for that matter. give 20 kids tablets synced to their teachers lessons, and another 20 kids a normal classroom and see what the difference in learning experience is. im sure that the kids with tablets will receive a much more fulfilling learning experience.
paper should go away for the most part, only thing we really need a hard copy of is important documents that need to be kept stored in a safe, i know i have a few. even prescriptions could be sent and validated via email from doctor to pharmacy. not even sure the point of photo id is, wondered it last time i picked up my grandfather's prescriptions for him after a 12 hour shift, looking a little suspect.
and solar panels, well, just get over it. its going to happen whether you like how they look or not. its a very useful and reasonable investment. once you start making the power bill dwindle, its only a few more installments until the power company is paying you for what you've devoted to them(at least in VA, changed last year, if your putting power back into the company they have to give you a check for it).
