  • Boing Boing: 'In Accelerando Charles Stross writes about a lot of interesting concepts we are just starting to work on... My favorite feature is "superplonk." It remixes the environment and filters annoying persons, objects and sounds. That’s an augmented reality version of what I practice today with special earplugs. But soon that should be possible with modified hearing devices and slim head-mounted displays.'
