A couple discuss their disintegrating relationship using nanotechnology.

London: the year 2070. Q-topia, a drug designed to provide immunisation against cancer has been a catastrophic failure. The drug's widespread use has left 39 percent of the world's population permanently blind, deaf and unable to speak. The process of nanotransmissional neurocognition, known commercially as NanoTran, has recently been integrated into vehicle design. Victims use their neurological impulses to control vehicles on designated roads, or 'pathways'. NanoTran also allows sufferers to 'speak' with each other via the direct use of fluent everyday speech, transmitted as text into the brain.
