1. Wireless power transmission
Devices and technologies each year consume more and more energy, so we need to ensure its uninterrupted supply. Wireless charging for the phone is just the beginning.
Israel has already tested a road that will charge an electric car while driving. This year Apple patented a technology that will allow you to charge your smartphone via Wi-Fi. If engineers are not able to create sufficiently capacious batteries, then you have to make sure that they are not discharged at all.
2. Biofuels and renewable energy
Almost certainly in the next 30 years, we will completely move from fossil to renewable energy sources. Oil and gas will ever run out, but solar and wind energy is not. In addition, solar panels are much more environmentally friendly.
Robotics over the past 10 years has stepped far forward. Of course, before the advent of the terminators, it will take more than a dozen years, but machines capable of taking heavy and monotonous work on their titanium shoulders will appear in the near future. For example, thanks to the company Boston Dynamics.
4. Digital distribution
The world is changing rapidly. Some 15 years ago we couldn’t imagine that we would no longer have to keep a pile of discs with music, movies and games at home. Steam and online cinemas have replaced our trip to the store. Instead of the new album of your favorite group, it is easier to buy a subscription to a music service at a similar price and get access to the entire discography.
Of course, digital distribution has not reached its apogee, and many continue to use physical media, but such people are becoming less and less.
The similarity of the neural interface has long existed and has been successfully used in medicine. Quadrilegics — people with complete paralysis of the body — talk using a neural interface using a computer.
Of course, technology is far from perfect. However, with the development of neurotechnologies, a paralyzed person will be able to return to society and live a full life.
6. Holographic images
Remember the holographic interfaces in “Star Wars” and “Minority Report”? Now this technology does not seem to be something fantastic.
The scope of holographic projections is limited not only to games and media. Imagine contact lenses that project an image on the retina. People with vision problems can see better without surgery.
7. Virtual reality
Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR are a completely new gaming experience. Of course, science fiction writers have long been playing around with the theme of virtual reality, but who thought about it seriously?
Game publishers and developers spend multimillion-dollar budgets to give us new impressions of virtual reality.Event managers successfully train your employees on new technology like VR devices to have room to grow: they are bulky and with a bunch of wires, but a start has been made. Soon we will be able to go to any part of the planet without leaving home.
8. Smart home
This technology has already become a reality. Refrigerators report, which products are running out, and the oven can be controlled using your smartphone.
In the future, the oven will learn to reheat food while you are driving home, and the refrigerator will order food itself. You at this time will be able to focus on more important matters like new windows Calgary.
9. Wearable electronics
Smart glasses and watches are devices that connect us to the outside world. But there are technologies that connect us with our body. Their development are engaged in large scientific institutions, corporations and small companies. We are talking about headphones that measure heart rate, lenses that monitor blood sugar levels, and tattoos with NFC technology.
As soon as developers can make such gadgets available, the market will be filled with various implants that will read important information in real time and display it on the same smart glasses.
