As a Physics ignoramus, I'm curious. This guy was recently on The Daily Show: http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-february-25-2014/michio-kaku. Talks about how we'll be able to upload (download?) memories to our brain. If you type his name into Youtube, you'll see that he has tons of highly viewed videos where he talks about science-fictiony topics. However I can't find any where he talks with much scientific or mathematical rigor. I wondered whether he might be some sort of pretend-Physicist, but I can't argue with the fact that he apparently graduated at the top of his class at Harvard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michio_Kaku#Early_life_and_education). Is he one of those overrated intellectuals like Richard Dawkins, i.e. a scientist who has an impressive resume but at some point decided to sell out to a mainstream audience by delivering soundbites that young people can regurgitate to pretend like they understand evolutionary biology and philosophy and theoretical physics?
