Humans will use synthetic telepathy
For almost a decade already, the US Army has been spending millions of dollars funding research into synthetic telepathy. Synthetic telepathy utilizes a computer to translate brainwaves from thoughts into words. Such technology is called electroencephalography.
Already, neuroscientists have made dramatic advances in thought communication technology. Researchers demonstrated one remarkable development when they taught monkeys how to manipulate robotic limbs merely by mental will.
Additionally, Elon Musk has developed what is called “neural lace“. Already this technology has been injected into mice, and their brains are one with computers. Researchers hope that such technology could help not only with communication but become a cure for mental illness or Parkinson’s disease.
Researchers estimate that such technology will be available within the next decade. Our great-grandchildren may no longer use what they will consider being outdated smartphones. Instead, they will satiate their technology needs using only the power of their minds.
Humans will no longer inhabit land or even the earth
Humans will find savvy ways to deal with population growth and climate change. There are several ideas of new structures that people will inhabit, that are likely to be a reality a century from now.
Skyscrapers will dwarf even the tallest skyscrapers we see today. Saudi Arabia is currently spending over a billion dollars developing a building that will reach a kilometer into the sky, containing 200 floors.
People will also build what “earthscrapers”. Mexico is already in the works to develop these types of buildings. Architects there have designed a 75 story inverted pyramid to be set in Mexico City’s old public square.
Bubble cities will also become a reality. These cities will be suspended under the ocean, and will actually contain technology that can absorb oxygen from the surrounding sea water. Those who inhabit will be very comfortable.
Humans will also realize their dreams of inhabiting other planets. Our great-grandchildren will most likely take vacations on the moon.
Humans will 3D print their food
If you are old enough to recollect the Jetsons cartoon, you are old enough to one day have great-grandchildren who will live a similar life to theirs. We all can recall how the show included the family pressing buttons to have whatever their choice of food appear immediately.
“Natural Machines” is a company that is on the verge of releasing a 3D food printer called “Foodini“. So far it seems they can create elegant designs from food purees that act as the “ink”. However, their machine only does half the work, meaning that home cooking is not made obsolete by their technology.
Clearly, the potential is astounding. Antony Dobrzensky is the founder and CEO of “Food ink”, a pop-up restaurant that 3D prints not only the food but also the cutlery, tables, and chairs!
