In the article “We have the Technology” by Karl Fisch, explains how far technology has come and how far it can be taken through the single new “bionic eye iPhone application” because this is an application on an iPod that can do a bionic eye. First Karl explained where the software is today on the application compared to where we can take the software to improve a device like this. Next, he inferred that this technology could be kind of odd to use if a person could walk up to someone that is not known to the person and know almost everything about them through cross referencing online. Last, this software could be turned into a “GPS” that is always on the owner so that they can locate some place even on foot. Most people only carry “GPS” in the car but what happens when a persons on foot and still is lost and needs to find a certain place. Clearly this is a big deal to be able to use considering all that it can do for a person.

  1. Hi, I'm one of your mentors, Danielle. What are your thoughts on this? Is it creepy that a stranger can walk up to you and know almost everything about you? Is that safe, or could it be dangerous? How is that affecting the trust people have for others? The person could have used technology, or the person could be a stalker. You would never know the difference. It could be dangerous.
