    The technology in 20 years?

    What do you guys think the technology would be 20 years from now? I think that everybody will have a computer and robots will replace humans in many fields.

    Hmm I guess we'll have a space-ship powerful enough to lead a human crew to Mars. Also the way technology exchange is progressing more countries will be able to send their people in space.

    No fossil fuels? Maybe then it will be necessary to utilise electric cars or motors which run on water.

    Holographic software? oO

    Aquatic probes which will reach and explore the highest depths of the world ocean.

    Solar plants and geothermal energy gatherers are leading in harvesting electricity.

    A few positive predictions.

    Probably just better versions of what we have now. ):

    At this rate, we'll never have flying cars.

    I know in 20 years from now, it will be harder to find blank VHS tapes to be able to record on.

    All I know is someone better make a Hoverboard.
    But yeah I agree the predictions above, and also I think there might be some personalized robots for home stuff.

    I'm guessing they'll be some pretty realistic video games out by then..like in a simulation capsule or something.

    And computers...that will be interesting to see.

    I think by then computers will be embedded in everything around us up to and including the furniture and the whole house will be linked together.
    Imagery may be projected on walls or maybe holographically.
    For everything we use today there will be something better made out of nano but I dont believe nano manufacturing will be possible in 20 years yet.
    Lower grade non-manual labour will become obsolete. Thats stuff like secretarial work, administration, filling in tax return forms etc.
    Cars may very well be driving themselves, at least on regulated roads in busy areas. That will seriously reduce the number of traffic jams.

    Not sure, but if we stay on the road that we are on I feel there will not be much different, other than the ability to implant iphones into us. At the moment nothing seems to be changing and wont anytime soon. For what ever reason, we have not had any major technology break throughs that are of any significance in the last decade or so. It seems as if people have lost the motivation to create something that actually leaves a positive affect on us. We seem to be caught all up into hand held devices at the moment, until the novelty of that wears off there will not be much progress, but there will probably be another type of distraction to entertain us.

    When we get to the point where the "human element" has been removed will we really begin to see the problems with the technology path that we are on.

    Has anyone here have heard of 2057? It came out in 2007 by the Discovery Network to show what the next fifty years will be like. This mini-series was only three episodes, but it showed the evolution of fifty years of technology inside the body, in the city, and all around the world. Great mini-series, but the acting was about C-.

    What about the mapping of the human genome? Portable Gps, things like you tube and google search engines? These are amazing things that have completely changed the way of life across the planet. We have wi-fi on airplanes now, laptops have become smaller and cheaper and are now more commonplace than ever.

    We have humans combining with machines,

    "Cyborgs are becoming reality. In the last decade, much progress has been made with brains controlling robotic limbs and computers.
    In 2000, researchers at Duke University Medical Center implanted electrodes in monkeys’ brains and then trained them to reach for food using a robotic arm. Such a neurochip could one day restore motor function in paralyzed patients.
    A team from the MIT Media Lab Europe developed a non-invasive method for picking up brain waves and, in 2004, used those signals for the first time to control the movements of a video game character. "


    They've found stem cells in a new source from skin, we've created new synthetics in all types of fields including bacterium..


    Moore's law is being applied to many different fields, not just transistors anymore. People are absorbing technology at such rapid intervals they forget just how amazing some of these things are. you go back 10 years and things were quite a lot different then they are now. granted we are not coming out with truly original ideas but the improvements made on existing technology is astounding. It's these improvements that will allow for the next stage of technological evolution to take place. The rapid progression of the technological curve will be very subtle and yet completely life altering.



    Some things I think we will be seeing is much more integration in biometrics. We'll have synthetic enhancements on a biological level as well as genetic manipulation. 20 years is a very long time considering the rapid pace that technology continues to accelerate excel.


    A lot of the technology will appear to be like magic to anyone who isn't familiar with it. Trying to predict which way technology will advance is very hard. I encourage people to look into the technological singularity.
