Michio Kaku speaks with FOX News about University of Reading researcher Mark Gasson becoming the first human known to be infected by a computer virus. The virus, infecting a chip implanted in Gasson’s hand, passed into a laboratory computer. From there, the infection could have spread into other computer chips found in building access cards.
Kaku has the rare ability to take complicated scientific theories and turn them into readable tales about what our lives will be like in the future. Fun… fascinating… and just a little bit spooky.
Compelling… Kaku thinks with great breadth, and the vistas he presents us are worth the trip.
