2085 milestone: Talking without speaking is state-of-the-art (the shush net)

The virtual telepathy emerging from the convergence of many different communication technologies and breakthroughs in brain science over past decades has made great strides in reliability and robustness by now. It even boasts a slew of fancy new acronyms and agreed upon standards world-wide.
