Handy devices, those complants. Don’t need a screen, the implant sends images directly to the brain’s visual cortex. Don’t need speakers or earphones, sound is sent directly to the brain’s auditory cortex. Speaking? The complant taps directly into the brain’s speech and language centers to interpret and broadcast what you want to say (makes it a handy Universal Translator too). This device renders other portable comm devices obsolete, but it’s not universally accepted. Some bionts simply don’t like having a device implanted in their heads.

I’ll post more on complants in a blog post under the The Vanguard Universe blog category soon.
