Thanks to Pentagon funding, the next age of computing is getting a kick-start. How long till this trickles down to consumer-grade computers? Possibly within 10 years? What's your best guess?

    Complete waste of money in my opinion, computing is going touch and portable. We'll have a big computer in the den for the foreseeable future, but all members of the house will also have portable touch-screen computers.

    Other governments are also funding this kind of research, and it will trickle down to consumer electronics eventually.
