Using nanotechnology or simple BCI's to provide non-invasive interfacing with an external network enhancing your awareness of your surroundings, your logical effectiveness, your memory, and reducing or eliminating disabilities. This technology, once accepted and proven safe, will reduce conflict, prevent health problems, provide information needed for possible gene therapy requirements(in future), reduce or eliminate transport costs, help with availability of "food" and end malnutrition, reduce energy needs(or eliminate energy dependancy depending on how it's implemented), improve education, reduce superstition, improve cooperative goal achievement, eliminate communication barrier, and allow us to interact safely in a virtual world without real-world consequence.

Update/Edit:
I notice looking back at this video that I made a few errors/oversights with how I explained my thoughts, which would likely cause some misunderstandings as to my intentions/ideas. For example. When I said eliminate transportation needs completely I intended to say that humans/drivers/people would no longer need to transport those products and through future development we may find ways to reduce the need to transport most things through localized fabrication technologies(but that part was clipped out).
Also I'm not really advocating relocating human-kind to a perpetual existence in a virtual-world - I'm just referring to us using it as a more common approach to long-distance interfacing (which we are already doing) - but with, for example, total tactile feedback, true hemispherical stereoscopic vision, and true immersive body interaction(without actual presence). This could be very useful in dealing with dangerous types of jobs for example.
