A couple of near-future ideas

1. Use the creation of Electrostatic Buckytube memory as a sub-neuron computer interface.

Create buckytubes with chemical receptors and emiters, so that the entry of a neurochemical “flips” the bucky-RAM state, before emiting another of the particular neurochemical to be on it’s way. Could be read by additional artificial Glial cells.

Pro’s: Would allow reading and potential manipulation of neural chemistry, and perhaps connection to external devices.

Cons: The additional step of flipping the memory state and releasing fresh neuro-chemicals could slow down brain chemistry.

2. RFID cards such as the Oyster use induction-coils for power and data transmission. As electro-magnetic pulse devices can be tuned to select bands, it seems plausible that you could create a localised EMP device running at 13.56Mhz that could overload and burn-out all RFID devices of that type within the local vicinity.

Seafood BBQ anyone?
