vB has a sort of version of that, so I would assume it could be a MOD

I have it on good authority that some of the current plans for phpBB 21 are:

- voice recognition system. You say your post, and it's automatically written on screen.

- touch screen to select smilies and bbcode

- a new texture bbcode, where you can input a texture, and when you touch the screen, you'll be able to feel it. So, if someone uses say the water texture bbcode, when you touch the screen it will feel like water.

- a new censor system for previous mentioned texture bbcode, because I'm pretty sure some of you were getting dirty ideas at the thought of such a feature.

- all new beer system. Ok, Acyd Burn and the rest of the developers haven't clued me in on what exactly that will do, but I like the sound of it so far.


and, to help our unfortunetly physically disabled members, support for the deaf, where you can have a voice read the post to you, however not just any voice, but your choice of 106 different celebrity voices. And for the blind, a new brail feature, sort of a take on the texture bbcode, where the post will instead become brail on the monitor that the blind can then feel and read.

I think there's a MOD for that for 2.0.x already. The nice thing about MODs like this is that they are usually very unobtrusive.

Who cares about AJAX when there's telepatic reply.

Still, it'd be a lot more efficient if you would only receive back the changed data through telepathy than for the entire page to be transmitted into your brain. So AJAX will be useful even then.

I wonder how I could get Quick Reply into the telepathic reply function.... I don't care if you can use your brain to reply, if there isn't a quick reply function I'm going to moan for months and months and month about it for no good reason.

Maybe the quick reply could guess what you're going to think based on your previous posts.... now if only there was a way to incorporate AJAX into this somehow :? I'll think about it and get back to you....

The censor options better be very good. Otherwise, well, it's kinda like goatse to a whole new level.
