It is never easy to predict what will happen in the future, especially the quick-developing technology, but still we would like to try with some technology predictions.
Over the years, in thousands of books, movies and comics we read and see about amazing inventions that never came to pass, either due to not knowing how or an abundance of common sense. But today, we are on the brink of a new digital world, where the capabilities of our crazy technology are beginning to outstrip our own. We can assure you that in about 20 years our technology will reach a level of personalization that will enhance every moment of our lives.
Our list contains some long-predicted future technology trends and if they evolve into real projects, there will surely be changes of the current view on the world.
We operate our devices with our hands, but in the future there will be no-touch interfaces. Each new device of technology requires new skills to use it proficiently and so the new trend no-touch interfaces will be so fundamentally different. This current basic pattern recognition technology has been advancing for generations and we can expect computer interfaces to become almost indistinguishable from humans in little more than a decade.
CAD and 3D Printing
Computer-Aided Design or CAD products are very popular among designers, engineers and students for creating 3D product designs, but for now, the software is too advanced for average costumers to design their own products. In the future, CAD will allow average costumers to design their own custom products that are both affordable and manufacturable. The 3D Printing or 3DP is another amazing technology that will make a 3D CAD model and print layers of material to produce a real physical model. The 3DP today is costly, slow and not fully developed, but in very near future many believe that this product will be able to produce robust parts quickly and cheaply.
3G and 4G Wireless Broadband
One of the greatest future technology devices is the 4G network. Actually, the 3G also and along with 4G they must change. In near future, deployment will be faster and more organic, where wireless provides will likely credit homeowners’ monthly bills for having devices like 3G MicroCell at home. With enough of these devices, even remote neighborhoods and towns will enjoy solid wireless access to the cloud.
Fully connected cars
Not sure what will come out first, the flying cars or these smart cars. As said, these cars would be able to communicate with traffic light to improve traffic flow, interact with other vehicles to prevent accidents, let you drag and drop a playlist from your home network, find a gas station with deepest discount and handle the payment and notify you when someone dents your door and supply footage of the incident.
Mobile phone conducted checkups
When it comes to technology, scientists are working very hard to develop applications that can measure your heart and respiration rates, perform blood test and even evaluate your cough. The only question is how long it will take the medical industry to develop the real ones. So, with applications like these, taking time to go on checkup and waiting in the hole for one or two hours will soon be forgotten.
Flying cars are the future of transportation and it is only matter of time when will this finally be completely developed. From home to anywhere you want without plowing through every flying car or building, drive in the air and forget the traffic jams. The main reason to consider this idea was the growing population and our transportation systems are expanding very fast, but not fast enough. The realization of this old dream could be finally here and we could fly with safe and easy to fly cars in just a few years.
