Many of us ponder what the world our great-grandchildren will inhabit will resemble.
Indeed, the world we inhabit now would be mind-blowing to our great-grandparents. Only a hundred years ago they could have never fathomed the incredible technological advancements that we take for granted these days.
Our great-grandparent’s generations made many wild predictions about our future, and occasionally some did come true. Therefore, we will attempt to do the same. Will our great-grandchildren believe we are way off the mark?
By examining the beginnings of technology that is still in its infancy, we can make some fairly accurate guesses as to how they will grow.
Below we list just how the world will be mind-blowingly different for our great-grandchildren:
Humans will modify the weather
People have desired to change the weather since time immemorial. They have used rain dances, magic spells, and other rituals in an attempt to relieve things like droughts. How successful they were is purely anecdotal.
However, through the past several decades there have been more scientific approaches to weather modification. The most efficient method appears to be cloud-seeding.
Allegedly, China recently broke a long-term drought by utilizing a cloud-seeding technique. The Chinese claim that after shooting silver iodide rods into clouds, a wild snowstorm ensued.
Additionally, a travel company called “Oliver’s Travels” claims it can guarantee a rain-free wedding if you purchase their cloud-seeding package for around $150,000. Spectacular claims indeed!
Clearly, as technology advances, weather modification will develop also. Weather modification will most likely be an everyday occurrence for our great-grandchildren.
Humans will turn the deserts green
In less than 60 years, the tiny state of Israel has converted arid desert to fertile farmland. Israelis have created desalination of sea water, drip irrigation, and other dramatic agricultural advancements.
Additionally, during that short period, Israel has managed to plant over 240 million trees. Furthermore, Israel is extremely keen to share their techniques with the world.
Wouldn’t this be an amazing thing? Will our great-grandchildren see the deserts of the world turn green? More than likely. And a bonus cherry on top could be that they will finally witness the creation of peace in the Middle East.
Nanorobots will live in our body to heal disease
Scientists are getting extremely close to creating the first nanorobots for use within the human body. They will be small enough to inject intravenously.
The possible uses would include diagnosing disease, as well as fighting it. These tiny robots could also administer medication and even potentially grow new organs.
Another crazy possibility is that nanobots will also have non-medical uses such as recording our memories. Our bodies could become integrated within technology through their use.
