While sitting on a panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland recently, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt told everyone that the Internet will soon “disappear.” What he meant is not what it sounds like he meant, however.

During a webcast of the panel discussion, Schmidt was asked for a prediction about what he believes is the future of the Internet. “I will answer simply that the Internet will disappear,” he replied.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

“There will be so many IP addresses… so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with that you won’t even sense it,” he explained. “It will be part of your presence all the time. Imagine you walk into a room, and the room is dynamic. And with your permission and all of that, you are interacting with the things going on in the room.”

The Internet will be so ubiquitous — become such a part of our everyday existence and even our physical being — that it will cease to exist to us as a separate entity and simply melt into us.

We will merge.

We will be the Internet and the Internet will be us.

When Schmidt says this, he isn’t speaking figuratively either. He literally means a world where we have merged with ‘the machine.’

This is where the lure of all of our electronic eye candy meets the singularly, where we officially become part of the Internet of Things. It has already begun.
