I think the most uncanny product that would be very disruptive and I think will never be implemented because it's too disruptive and it's not a humane technology is the Twitter Implant, because the Twitter Implant is an implant that you get for free from your health insurance, so your health insurance pays you to get this Twitter Implant. It's a little tooth, it replaces a wisdom tooth that's taken out and the implant is put in, and it twitters everything that happens in your body. So when my heart rate goes up, it gets twittered. This could be a good thing, because then my doctor could see, oh, there's something happening there, you should pay me a visit. But also, when I smoke a cigarette, then it also gets twittered. And of course my health insurance will get more expensive then. That's the business model, that’s how it's presented. And that's an example of a technology that will be disruptive. Some people will like it, because they'll say: I have a healthy lifestyle and I don't want to pay for people who don’t have a healthy lifestyle. But in the end I think it's too intimate. It's too much breaching the borders of your personal body that you share everything that happens in your body with your health insurance. So I think that's a technology and an example of a product that we have here in the supermarket, and it's interesting as a scenario, to think about and to discuss, but I think it will not be implemented. I hope not. At least not in this way.
