Paul Somerson: "How would you like to avoid waiting in lines for
the rest of your life? Breeze through everywhere like you owned the place.
Watch lights snap on, doors open automatically, money pop out of ATMs
as you approach. Never have to show an ID, buy a ticket, carry keys, remember
a password. You would leave stores loaded with packages and waltz right
past the cashiers. You wouldn't have to carry a wallet. Ever. Family and
friends could find you instantly in any crowd."
