Life changing technologies

What's to come is currently. Today we're checking down our picks for ten future innovations that may change the world.



For this rundown, we're investigating the most front-line advancements and developments that could change the manner in which we live on our little blue planet.

Robots with personalities (AI):



This is perhaps the most highly criticized technology on this list and the one most likely to make people wary. Artificial intelligence many years of cinema have taught us that it can go one of two ways it could be incredible or incredibly horrifying. while proponents of AI development argue that it will help people in many tasks, the developments of machines with a human or greater level of intelligence has raised a lot of philosophical as well as ethical debates. From the risk of putting humans out of jobs to general safety to the moral ramifications of creating something sentient purely for servile work. The discussion is sure to be a long one and will surely shape our future.

3D printing:



We’ve all seen the videos of those little objects whizzed into existence. While it is obviously in its infancy now the ability to produce items through additive manufacturing could drastically change how we live. What if you could print out your own replacement car parts, tools, household items, reproduce priceless pieces of art, functional weapons, medical devices. Its impact on globalization and manufacturing sectors worldwide along with its potential too deeply affect routine labor and capital markets should not be underestimated. It could also be great leading to a resurgence of small manufacturing companies while the social and financial impacts are difficult to predict at this point.3D printing could be the biggest most innocuous innovation since the printing press.

Sound disruptors for firefighting:



George Mason University engineering students Seth Robertson and Viet Tran may have drastically altered the future of fighting the fire. They developed a sonic fire extinguisher that moves the air at frequencies between 30-60 hertz, Which interrupts Oxidization at the core of a fire. Basically, it separates the fuel from the oxygen and as everyone who has ever tried to get a campfire going knows you need those things to be working in tandem if you want to get a flame going. They've had success thus far on alcohol-based fires but if they get it to work on other fuels like water oil it could provide a cheaper cleaner and the more efficient way to battle blazes.

Hyperloop:



This is another brainwave from space exploration Technologies Corporation, better known as Space X.  That helps to improve and ultimately change the face of transportation. The design is surprisingly elegant in its simplicity, there specifically designed pods for capsules upheld in a near vacuum and floating on 0.05 inches of pressurized air. That is then sent at high speeds through a steel to, well it does sound a tad claustrophobic these passenger capsules would travel at an average speed of approximately 600 miles per hour with potential Max speeds of up to 760 miles per hour. Energy efficient and wicked fast, It could change the way people get from place to place forever. 

Transhumanism:



Most of an intellectual movement than an invention transhumanism is the belief that humans can still evolve. It’s that final evolution linking our minds and bodies with advanced technology, a subject that's been popularized by science fiction films and books for years. And in fact, the term Transhumanism was coined by Julian Huxley the brother of ‘Brave New World’ author Aldus Huxley. The idea is to ultimately bring forth a post-human state of being. While the concept is unnerving it best to many for those who embrace the idea there has never been a more exciting time to be alive. Even if that life may be linked to the hard drive. The fastest reflexes modern technology has to offer onboard computer system memory and a lifetime of on the street law enforcement programming.

The EM drive:

This is the name given to the design of a method of advanced space propulsion technology also known as a radio frequency or RF resonant cavity thrusters. This electromagnetic thruster uses pent up electromagnetic radiation to achieve impetus and momentum without discharging propellant. If this sounds a little confusing don't worry! It does basically define the laws of physics. The conservation of momentum implied in Newton's laws of motion says it should be impossible. And therefore there are many skeptical scientists who've given it the nickname the impossible Drive. However, if they do get it to work it would completely change how we could lift off making space exploration and defense missions that much simpler.

Smart things:

Samsung bought the company back in 2014 and the concept is basically in the name. The idea is to produce smart homes using an open platform wherein appliances and devices all interact with one another.  
Using the internet of things the system would work on a hub connected straight into the houses internet router connecting devices to one another via the cloud. Companionable things could consist of locks, Lights, Electrical outlets motion sensors, speakers, moisture sensors and thermostats. Like most innovations that work on the border of sci-fi and reality, this sounds like it could either be amazing or a hacker's paradise.

Driverless cars:

It has been already being tested by Google and Tesla Motors. This innovation could change everything from the way people are employed to the way we interact with the layout of cities. It could even spell the end of the auto industry altogether, the deal with driverless is not that you'll own one but that no one will own one. Already fewer and fewer people are choosing to purchase cars and expensive investment, which only use on average 5% of the time. According to transportation adviser Paul barter, more people are opting for rideshare groups like uber and that's where a driver starts to become redundant. Basically think of a world of Johnny caps your cars less pollution narrowing roads more public space.

Electric cars:

Even if you don't believe in manmade climate change everyone can probably agree that wasteful and nonrenewable fuels are virtually unnecessary these days. People have been trying to get electric cars running for practically as long as cars have existed, but so far they've been hindered by the distances they can travel speed and a lack of charging stations. But with the rise of companies like Tesla motors those issues are falling by the wayside as we begin to change the way we think about driving. Tesla isn't the only group developing these newer cars which as of 2016 are equipped with self-driving hardware, but they've definitely hit the fast lane.

Virtual reality:



Like the electric car, scientists have been trying to get virtual reality or VR technology off the ground for a long time. VR can refer to basically any immersive software that simulates real sights sounds and experiences. While the 2010 side being marketed as a way to give gamers a more full on experience. The technology is being explored for application in many other areas like engineering, military training, archaeology, phobia treatments, and therapies and film. With augmented reality quickly becoming an actual reality. This technology will eventually change not only how we see the world but also how we interact with it.
