We are living in a world where Technology is defining our lives. This Technology is improving at an exponential rate that nobody can estimate. This exponential growth would eventually make Science Fiction into Science reality.
We have already laid the foundations for the smart future. Whether it be AI or it be VR or any magic with IoT. These were just the pillars of future innovations. Here some predictions of Future Technologies that may soon be the reality.
By scanning brain activity it’s already possible to decode what someone is watching. By 2050 it might be possible to actively monitor or download dreams, which makes one wonder whether it might one day also be possible to upload false memories.
Space tourism has taken off and we are promised low-cost moon tourism. The next logical step would surely be a moon hotel, probably 3D printed from lunar dust.
3.Civil Partnerships: People Marrying Robotic Companions.
Human-Robot relationships are just entering the ‘first date’ stage. We are already seeing individuals in Japan preferring avatar girlfriends to the real thing, so how long before people start having legal marriages with robots or have intercourse with robots.
4.150 Year Human Life Spans.
200 years ago or thereabouts the average lifespan in developed regions was about 40-45. Today it’s around 75-80, so why wouldn’t it hit 150? (unless of course, poor diet and sedentary lifestyles reverses the trend)
5.First Child Born in Space.
A child conceived in space seems fairly certain. Would anyone on a long distance mission go the whole way and chance having a child born in space?
6.First Cloned Human.
We had cloned mammals as far back as 1996, so someone, somewhere, will be curious enough to try with people.
7.Crop Pollination Robotic Insects.
If bees and other pollinators would disappear would we invent robotic alternatives? A even likely outcome might be insect sized surveillance drones.
No, not spray on skinny jeans (they have already been invented but skin that’s made on a 3D printer or sprayed out of an aerosol.
9.Electronic Display Tattoos.
Tattoos are Fashion trends ever since the beginning . How about programmable LED tattoos or even animated tattoos? Check out Ray Bradbury’s 1951 sci-fi classic The Illustrated Man for a bit of inky inspiration.
10.Active Contact Lenses.
Think Google Glass, but in with a contact lens.
So are you ready to witness the future then get ready to be in a world where Technology defines the Human Life. Tell us your opinion about these predictions, and also comment the likelihood estimation percentage of them being the reality.
