As a concept, It will fail to be marketed. In a way it is a lot like a concept car. Amazing to look at, but only the door handle will be used on anything you actually see .
Intellectually, its very interesting, and does have practical applications. It would have to be miniturised and beta tested like a mofo before it could be designed as a single salable unit. As always, the final retail unit will have almost all of the interesting features removed.
I think she's going along the lines of GHOST IN THE SHELL (manga movie) type's of interface technology that is eventually possible. It's possible because they have crude and in testing still "eye implant interfaces".
But it is nothing to do with a sixth sense it is just an implanted computer interface/information unit and will not as far as I can see, become anything more. She said it will probably take ten years or so but that is likely to be a similar non-implant unit.
It will probably take 30 years or so for a viable implant unit that is non-interfering with the human mind/corrosive properties/fluids static charge etc before you can have a lifetime implant unit.
Also it has to be extremely small and molecule computer systems haven't been invented yet. They are still in theory/tests etc.
You would also need some sort of eye and finger implants to recognise/project etc and interact. Microtechnology implants are 20-50 years away for the working jo public.
I am always interested to see how real tech tries to follow sci-fi (and has lost so much ground over the last 30 years).
But what "worries" me is that there does not seem to be any block between the thought and the action.
Now this was covered brilliantly by Forbidden Planet years ago. But even without the rampaging mind monster, how does the system distinguish between seeing an ad on TV and thinking:-
Oh she's attractive, and that email being sent - oh oh! I'd like to buy that - Eh? My accounts been debited for an ice-cream? That's a nice setting - OMG I didn't want to book a trip there Shut down Shut Down ---- Oh B*gger I can't move my body.
I have enough trouble controlling my thoughts and words as it is, last thing I need is something to bring them in to existence before I've even had chance to reconsider.
Be affable, but have Occam's Razor in your back pocket.
