Cool idea and concept and it is also possible to happen but for me it is overstating. I know technology can make things possible but I hope not this kind of level that we will be surrounded with technologies that sometimes people might forget other important things in their life.

The most interesting part is the variety of personal interfaces going on throughout, inlcuding voice, touch, keyboard, gesture, etc., each of which has several biometric characteristics that will be necessary for the system to identify the various people interacting with it simultaneously and over time.  These provide opportunities for authentication schemes, using many types of data, that could be very powerful.

Good point Guy. I like the natural way people interact with the visualizations. I worry about the security of the future, however.

Cool isn't it? Now imagine if every piece of tech there is penetrated and can't be trusted.
