I cant think of the next fresh new thing but I know something that will be the next thing many many moons from now. Has anyone ever seen the matrix?..........That would be the final new. No one would EVER leave that virtual world, at least I know I wouldn't. I say the final new because society would crumble after this technology comes about. The idea of ditching your possibly sad, pitiful, imperfect life for one that you can script yourself, live how you want to live and even look how you want to look. Why would anyone want to disconnect!! Especially if you can defy the law of physics...........because in a virtual world gravity is nothing but a code. It may sound like i'm kidding but I am seriously sure that someone some where is currently researching this. Just need a large enough server to load this virtual world into and a giant transmitter to ur brain/spine to make the experience feel real.
