Tim Sweeney: To answer your question, "no".VE: What do you see happening to the gaming industry in the 21st century? What is one gadget, gizmo, or technology that you'd like to see in the future?
TS: If you back up and look at the big picture of computing in general, extrapolating the 21st century's progress from where we stand today, January 1, 2000, using just Moore's law, then the curve goes off all the charts. By the end of the century, a single wristwatch will possess more computing power than the combined brains of the entire human race. (Do this yourself: raise two to the sixty-sixth power--Moore's law, and divide the result by ten billion--the human population). So, clearly, many very interesting and scary things will happen in this century. I keep thinking of that badge from The Truman Show, asking "how does it end?" What happens when computers become monumentally more intelligent than us? Ascension or armageddon?
