Well, do you all remember that particle accelerator that is about to be finished in Europe? Well, a new Internet was created to process all the information it will start gathering… it’s called the grid. It’s 10,000 times faster than broadband and it will enable users to download movies in a matter of 4 or 5 seconds. We will be able to communicate and use holographic imaging once the technology is finalized. The web will be obsolete. The web will be worse than dial-up!
Are you ready??? 🙂
Here is an excerpt from the article:
THE internet could soon be made obsolete. The scientists who pioneered it have now built a lightning-fast replacement capable of downloading entire feature films within seconds.
At speeds about 10,000 times faster than a typical broadband connection, â€œthe gridâ€ will be able to send the entire Rolling Stones back catalogue from Britain to Japan in less than two seconds.
The latest spin-off from Cern, the particle physics centre that created the web, the grid could also provide the kind of power needed to transmit holographic images; allow instant online gaming with hundreds of thousands of players; and offer high-definition video telephony for the price of a local call.
David Britton, professor of physics at Glasgow University and a leading figure in the grid project, believes grid technologies could â€œrevolutioniseâ€ society. â€œWith this kind of computing power, future generations will have the ability to collaborate and communicate in ways older people like me cannot even imagine,â€ he said.
