“Life, generally, will be smoother and easier. Skooks Pong from Synapse painted the most comprehensive vision of this new life in his address on the Future of Biometrics. According to Pong, we’ll be woken by our beds when we’re ready, the shower will reset itself to the right temperature for each member of the household, the heating will adjust downwards as we leave the house and the car will open automatically because it recognises us. It might even recommend some music for us.”
