20 Future technology articles

                  Technologies are developing at breakneck speed. The things that impressed us 20 years ago, seem trivial by today's standards. Thus, people in 2034 (unless, of course, Zombie Apocalypse 2017 will not destroy human civilization) will appear to take for granted 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 we can not fully comprehend today. Most of these technologies already exist in any form; they are simply waiting for the right scientist or entrepreneur to change the world

Graphene over the past few years has become a sort of buzzword in the technical community. Essentially it - a layer of carbon 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 ...

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 are constantly recharged kinetic and solar energy to driven by sugar, which are up to 15 times longer than today's lithium-ion. A promising future battery technology virtually guarantees that we will never find ourselves in a ridiculous situation, because "the village of the battery." But so far nothing concrete, scientists can not offer. As they say, they are one step ahead.

Google Glass. Although this product will never be as popular as smartphones or tablets today, Google Glass is actually showed some real opportunities in the medical industry, enabling doctors to quickly get access to relevant information, to confirm the diagnosis, and even helping in complex operations.

Energy. As the world's population is growing rapidly, and the oil reserves are depleted, 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 provide themselves with 100% solar energy and wind energy, and coastal communities will be able to draw its energy from the water, and nuclear fusion could provide the energy our biggest city, and it will be safer and more effective than it is today.

Large Hadron Collider. The LHC - a gigantic particle accelerator, built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) underground on the Swiss-French border. Its aim is to carry out large-scale experiments to test various theories of particles and high-energy physics. In 2013 he 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 the LHC in the coming years will play a key role in our understanding of the fundamentals of the universe. 

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

Genetically modified food. Genetically modified foods (GMOs) have become quite 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 hundreds of millions of people around the world, is already a fact. You can not ignore the results, and that is why products with GMOs will play a big role in the next few decades, we have become more and we consume more and more.

Exoskeleton. The 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 US armed forces. They created an early precursor of the Internet in the late 1960s. Today the agency absorbed the work on developing modern military technologies, including military exoskeletons style Iron Man.

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 all manufacturers of mobile devices. After Apple released the iPhone 5S in September of 2013, other manufacturers have picked up the idea. Soon people will demand that the entire consumer electronics has been equipped with some form of biometric security, whether it is a fingerprint scan, retinal identification or voice recognition (and, possibly, all three).

  Apple iWatch. As for Apple's, the insiders hinted at for a couple of years, the company from Cupertino will launch one smart watch, iWatch. Their competitor overtook them, but Apple's all still waiting for them iWatch. MP3-players and phones in the form factor of hours already doing the same Chinese, but it 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...

 Brain-computer interface. Imagine the ability to control your computer using your brain. For most of our 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 paralysis patients, together 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.

The holographic interface. As can be seen in any film that wants to make the main interaction with the computer seem high-tech holographic interface shows a very intuitive way of interacting with a computer, and a great way to meet the budget of the special effects in the film. Unfortunately for the dreamers of all, this technology is still in the bud.

Cloud technologies. Cloud technology is already widespread. Services like Dropbox, G.Drive, iCloud there for many years and have tens of millions of users. But in the future, all absolutely all be 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 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, which is not your home, and mega-corporations in the server. 

 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. 

Desalination and water treatment. Water scarcity is becoming a real problem. But we know that the sea water can be desalinated. While it is expensive. It is also used for the desalination of substances that eventually dumped into the ocean. These wastes are harmful to the environment. New methods of wastewater treatment and conversion of sea into drinking are already yielding good results. It remains quite a bit, as the scientists say.

 Virtual reality. We are waiting for the computer system of virtual reality in the 1980s. With the Oculus Rift it seems that the wait is finally over. Oculus Rift, which was recently acquired by Facebook, provides a stunningly realistic experience, which will soon be the dream of every gamer.

 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 fantasies. 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.

 Aerogels. It's really cool. Aerogels are gels that have removed them and replaced the liquid portion of the air through a process known as supercritical drying, leaving only part of the firm. In the resulting product, known in common as "frozen smoke", has great insulation properties. Aerogels are silica were even proposed for use in future deep space research.

  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. The minds behind this idea, plan to follow every second of the astronauts and to make it a reality show. But they never felt, what it's like to be the stars, in fact, because they will never return to Earth. It - trip one-way! 

 Self-cars. This is what we all really look forward to. And our favorite Google closest to the fulfillment of our dreams. Many automakers from Audi to Nissan, is also thinking about the idea. Government security forces transporting several countries now support the concept avtopilotiruemyh cars and reflect on how best to prepare the people, who all his life alone drove the car.
