This article features some of the new technologies to look forward to in the coming years. These advancements in technology that you can expect in the future may actually change your life.
Advancement in Space Tourism
At present, the cost of the space tourism is around $20 to $30 million to blast off and have fun at the International Space Station, or around $200,000 for a sub-orbital spaceflight. Within five years, companies such as Orbital Technologies, Space Island and Galactic Suite may offer an orbiting hotel suite that may range from $10,000 for overnight stay and up to $1 million for five-night stay.
The Sunscreen Pill
A new pill will be introduced to protect your skin and your eyes from Ultraviolet rays. Scientists use reverse-engineering, the same process the coral reefs protect themselves from the sun. This may cause dismay to some sunscreen manufacturers worldwide.
Portable Laser Pens
These laser pens can actually seal wounds. Imagine you are riding a bike and accidentally you fall causing a big cut on your knee and blood overflows. This can cause serious blood loss, but in less than ten years, you may be carrying with you a portable laser pen that can seal wound in an instant.
Light Peak Technology
This technology is a method of super-high-data-transfer that will let more than 100 G/s and eventually the whole T/s within everyday consumer electronics. This will let you copy the entire hard drive within a matter of seconds, although, by this time, the hard drive is approximately over 2TB.
Smallest Robot Spies
The insect sized robot spies are close to reality, with the military working so hard to create the smallest robot spies to the espionage playground. This new technology is actually immune to bug spray.
PC with the Power of the Human Brain
This PC will have a greater amount of computing power compared to the past. Your PC will think and react like a human brain.
Energy from a Fusion Reactor
This new technology seemed impossible but it’s not. It is the process of generating infinite energy from a tiny amount of resources, but it needs a machine that can contain a reaction that comes at over 125,000,000 degrees. However, at present in Southern France, the reactor of the future is being manufactured to power up by 2019 that may be at full-scale fusion power by 2030.
Crash Proof Cars
Volvo has promised to manufacture cars that make use of sonar, radar and driver alert systems. Cases involving automobile crashes kill around 30,000 individuals in the US every year; this is surely a welcome technology.
The next ten years will be an era of exceptional connectivity. It will build upon the social networks, both virtual and real that people will play a role in manufacturing, putting together ideas from strangers. Definitely, the biggest changes we will encounter will not come from the visible technology. The important changes will take place on areas we know best but we cannot see: our own minds and hearts.
