Technology is something that’s grown to play a very critical role in our lives, whether professional or personal. Today, we live in a world where almost 90% of what we do is dependent on technology and in some cases, even the kind of technology we use.

But, you know what? It’s never the same with technology and as time passes by we’re only going to see technology evolve further. It will continue to revolutionize the way we do things. So, if you thought today’s technology is awesome, here’s a glimpse of what might be possible in the future.

Some of them can alter the very essence of our existence, revolutionizing everything from the way we interact with each other to the way we carry out business.

Eye-Controlled Technology

Thanks to the constant progress within the field of face and movement recognition technology, we could very well see an era where devices and other machines are controlled simply with one’s eye movements.

Paper-Based Diagnostics

Experts predict the creation of diagnostic tools made from specialized paper that will speed up the screening process for illnesses such as Zika, Ebola, and Swine Flu.

Ingestible Robots

Advances in nanotech will lead to the creation of near-microscopic robots that are bio-compatible. Once ingested, these robots will fix injuries within the body and even provide analytical reports.

Intelligent Clothing

With a combination of haptic feedback, miniature electronic components, and nanoporous materials, engineers will be able to create intelligent clothing that can change colors, size, and even regulate temperature to suit climatic conditions.

Designer Antibiotics

A bottom-up approach in medical technology will allow for the creation of bespoke antibiotics to target specific strains of bacteria or viruses (superbugs).

Diamond Batteries

Casings made from diamond will house radioactive waste, thereby, allowing the conversion of radiation into electricity. In other words, we will eventually see an end to our current energy supply problems.

Carbon-Breathing Batteries

Another solution to our power woes would be “Carbon-Breathing Batteries”. These are batteries that will use electrochemical cells to absorb CO2 and produce electricity. Apart from solving power problems, we will also be able to combat pollution effectively.

Biomimetic Materials

Materials that can imitate the behavior of actual living organisms will find their applications in diverse fields; from clothing to construction. We will have clothes and buildings that will be able to fix themselves.

Advanced Algorithms

As algorithms continue to grow more advanced, we will be able to make exponential progress in various fields such as medicine, engineering, space exploration, economics, astronomy, and understanding the origins of the earth.

Designer Molecules

Artificially synthesized molecules, made up of super atoms, will give rise to new and advanced materials.

Rapid Genetic Screening

Rapid genetic diagnostic tools will make it easier for health professionals to prescribe customized medication and unravel more details about human genetic history.

Fusion Power

Fusion power will become available commercially. More than 75% of the current grid will be converted to supply power derived from nuclear fusion.
