Here’s a 0:50 clip of an 8-month-old deaf baby reacting to having his cochlear implants turned on for the first time, and hearing his mother’s voice:

Cool, right?  Imagine every childhood disease, and every form of birth defect, we have in today’s world.  And imagine that all of them – all of them – are gone in 25-30 years.  Cancer, diabetes, leukemia, deafness, blindness… you name it, it’ll be easily curable.  That’s the power of the nanotechnology and related biotechnology that’s coming.

P.S. Yes, yes, I know, it’s “differently-abled.”  Whatever.  Either way, it won’t be around anymore.
