advancements are proceeding at an alarming rate, and these days, there are
countless conveniences available to use at the click of a button. Ordering food
is as easy as grabbing your phone and contacting your restaurant of choice,
shopping is done through computers and digital payments, and transport services
can even arrive at your doorstep with nothing more than a tap of a screen.
has made our lives incredibly convenient, and it’s interesting to think about
what developers, scientists, and researchers might come up with next.
Currently, there are four big up and comers that people are waiting for and all
it will take is the one perfect eurekamoment
for these wonders to materialize.
Virtual reality – Virtual reality is
starting to gain a bigger following among people because of the great potential
it holds. This feature of the future allows people to travel to and from
different realities without leaving the comfort of their homes. Imaging
travelling to Italy, France, or a remote tropical island without even having to
stand up from your living room sofa. Virtual reality developers have created
numerous devices that make use of this technology in the field of gaming. The
Oculus Rift, probably the most popular VR device in present times, allows users
to experience their games first hand by immersing them in the game, complete
with surround sound and high-quality visuals. Nowadays, however, developers are
looking into creating virtual reality training courses for medical
professionals to enhance the learning process and hopefully come up with better
3D Printing – 3D printers aren’t that
uncommon these days, however the technology is still rather new. 3D printers have
been used to create everything from cars, to furniture, and shows a lot of
promise in the fields of design and innovation. People have even imagined 3D
printers to be able to create food from nothing but protein molecules and
vitamins, so users can enjoy literally making food from the comfort of their
Artificial Intelligence – Think Siri,
but way smarter. Artificial intelligence is becoming the focus of major
research because of its potential to become a replacement for several jobs and
occupations that could be better performed by artificial intelligence bots.
Imagine a world where call center agents and receptionists are all AI – there
would be zero room for error and higher customer satisfaction.
Robotic prosthetics – Gone are the days
when amputees are seen as people with disability. Robotic prosthesis promise a
bright future for individuals who are currently seen as handicapped. This
future invention could allow people who have suffered from injury or disease
and lost a limb or two to have a second lease on life with added benefits.
Robotic prosthesis could not only improve the lives of disabled individuals,
but also enhance the performance of athletes and military servants for improved
physical capacity. Now, all we need to figure out is how to get these things to
conform with each individual person’s unique body, build, and abilities to come
up with an army of super humans.
