20 TECHNOLOGIES THAT WILL SHAPE THE NEXT 20 YEARS

Technologies are developing at breakneck speed. Things that struck us 20 years ago, seem banal by today's standards. Thus, people in 2034 (unless, of course, Zombie Apocalypse 2017 will not destroy human civilization) will seem self-evident things that seem magical to us today.
Over the next two decades many of the technologies in this list will shape the world in ways that we can not fully comprehend today. Most of these technologies already exist in any form; they are just waiting for the right scientist or entrepreneur to change the world.
 


20. graphene.

Graphene over the past few years has become a kind of buzzword in the technical community.Essentially it - a layer of carbon just one atom thick, super strong, conductive and flexible material, which has a great future in various fields of biomedical devices for desalination to a much improved battery technology. Speaking of batteries ...




19. The new battery technology.

Besides the already known to us graphene, researchers have experimented with countless other materials, chemical formulas and compositions to improve the technology of batteries. From tiny flexible batteries that are recharged constantly kinetic and solar energy to powered sugar, which are up to 15 times longer than today's lithium-ion. Promising future battery technology virtually guarantees that we will never find ourselves in a ridiculous situation, because "the battery has." But so far nothing concrete scientists can not offer. As they say, they are in one step.




18. Google Glass.

Although this product will never be as popular as a smartphone or tablet today, Google Glass actually showed some real opportunities in the medical industry, enabling doctors to quickly access the information you need to confirm the diagnosis and even helping in complex operations.




17. Energy.

As the world's population is growing rapidly, and the oil becomes scarce, cheap, efficient and renewable energy sources are becoming more important than ever before. Scientists are making progress all the time in this area. Over the next 20 years, the building will learn to support themselves 100% solar and wind energy, and coastal communities will be able to draw their energy from the water, and nuclear fusion could provide the energy our biggest city and it will be safer and more efficient than today.




16. Large Hadron Collider.

LHC - a gigantic particle accelerator built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) underground on the Swiss-French border. His goal is to perform large-scale experiments to test various theories of particles and high-energy physics. In 2013 conducted an experiment that proved the existence of the Higgs boson (the so-called "God particle"). With a large number of planned experiments possible that in the coming years, the LHC will play a key role in our understanding of the fundamentals of the universe.




15. 3D printing.

3D printing is not new. In fact, it has existed since the 1980s. But only in the last few years, the technology finally achieved recognition. Over the next 20 years, 3D printers become as common as jet today. Think about the possibilities: You came back from Ikea and realized that you forgot to bolt for the beautiful new bookcase Fjorkltünde, which you have spent $ 300? There is no need to curse our Swedish masters of furniture. Just go to their website, download and print yourself a bolt!




14. Genetically modified food.

Genetically modified foods (GMOs) have become quite an urgent problem in recent years. People hear the words "genetic modification", and their brains process them as "dangerous mutants Godzilla." You can be for or against, but the fact that genetic modification spared such crops as corn and wheat from disease, drought and pests, allowing you to feed the hundreds of millions of people around the world, this is a fact. You can not ignore these results, and that's why GMO products will play a big role in the next few decades, we have become more and we consume more and more.




13. The exoskeleton.

DARPA decidedly boring acronym for the Agency's Defense Advanced Research Projects, a division of the US Department of Defense, which is tasked with the creation of the incredible technology for the American armed forces. It was they who created the earliest predecessor of the Internet in the late 1960s. Today the agency at work on developing modern military technologies, including military exoskeletons in the style of Iron Man.




12. Biometrics.

Biometrics is the next wave of mobile security. In fact, nothing new, but its implementation in Apple made ​​us think about the security of mobile device manufacturers. After Apple released the iPhone 5S in September 2013, other manufacturers have picked up the idea. Soon people will demand that all consumer electronics has been equipped with some form of biometric security, whether it is scanning a fingerprint, retina identification or voice recognition (and possibly all three).




11. Apple iWatch.

As for Apple, some insiders have hinted at for a couple of years, the company from Cupertino will release once smart watches, iWatch. They outscored their rival, but Apple's all still waiting for their iWatch.MP3-players and phones in the form factor of hours already doing the same Chinese, but there is non-trending. If Apple decides to leave the market of smart watches, the more likely they will create a device that will give impetus to a new era.




10. Brain-computer interface.

Imagine the ability to control your computer using your brain. For most of us, Brain-computer interface would serve only to increase our dependence on computers and even more to isolate us from the outside world. But for people with disabilities and patients palsy, with biomechanical prostheses Brain-computer interface can provide a return to normal life. This technology is in its infancy, but she has a huge potential.




9. The holographic interface.

As can be seen in any film that wants to make basic interactions with a computer with high-tech sound, holographic interface shows a very intuitive way to interact with your computer, and a great way to meet budget special effects in the film. Unfortunately for all dreamers, this technology is still in the bud.




8. Cloud technologies.

Cloud technology is already widespread. Services such as Dropbox, G.Drive, iCloud there for many years and have tens of millions of users. But in the future, everything, absolutely everything, is in the cloud.Hard drives and flash cards become a thing of the past. All your documents, music and photos will be stored in the cloud and available on all of your devices at any time when you want. But do not be fooled, though it is popular, but it's still the same flash drive or hard drive that does not cost you at home, and in the server megacorporations.




7. nanobots.

nanorobots or nanobots are still in the research phase. Mainly developed in the medical field, nanorobots, in fact, are microscopic machines capable of detecting and destroying pathogens and work at the cellular level. But in the future they will be used in all industries. Although, given the complex manufacturing process and the real extent required for efficacy, something concrete is still far away.




6. desalination and water treatment.

Water scarcity is becoming a real problem. But we know that seawater can be desalinated. While it is expensive. Also used for desalination of substances that eventually dumped into the ocean. These wastes are harmful to the environment. New methods of wastewater and convert sea into drinking already give good results. There are very few, as scientists say.




5. Virtual Reality.

We waited a computer virtual reality systems since the 1980s. With the Oculus Rift seems that waiting was finally over. Oculus Rift, which was recently acquired by Facebook, provides a stunningly realistic experience that will soon be the dream of every gamer.




4. The advanced robotics.

We were promised robots, and useful, and just terrible. Most of the progress has been slow, but this is mainly because the technology required to build these marvels of technology, a bit not up to our imaginations. Over the next two decades, the field of artificial intelligence and machine to speed up and slowly but surely, our servant robots finally become a reality.




3. Aerogels.

It's really cool. Aerogels are gels in which the liquid part removed of air and replaced by the process known as supercritical drying, leaving only the solid portion. In the resulting product, known in the common people as "frozen smoke", there are great insulation properties. Aerogels quartz were even proposed for use in future deep space exploration.




2. Galactic Colonization.

The Dutch non-profit organization Mars One recently announced plans to colonize Mars by 2025. They are currently in the initial stage of determining who will be the first people to colonize the red planet.There are many other obstacles that stand in the way of success, the largest of which - the financing of this project. Answer: reality TV. Minds behind this idea, plan to follow every second of the astronauts and make this a reality show. But they never felt, what it is to be stars, in fact, because they will never return to Earth. This is - a trip to one end!




1. Self-cars.

This is something that we really are all waiting for. And our favorite Google closest to the fulfillment of our dreams. Many automakers, from Audi to Nissan also thinking about this idea. Govt safe transportation of several countries now support the concept avtopilotiruemyh cars and reflect on how best to prepare people who all his life alone drove the car. And some of these technologies are you most expect? Prepared GusenaLapchataya - Muz4in.Net
