New Technology Around The Corner

Like most people, I enjoy looking at the technology of the future.  We love to talk about being turned into robots, or less crazy, using our hands to control our computer screens.  It gets most of us very excited for the future, but what we sometimes don’t realize is that the technology is being developed now.  Here are some examples of mind-blowing technology. We also talk about new technology on our 20th Podcast.

1. The Leap– I found the Leap Motion to be a very fascinating product. I am not sure what is more fascinating that it works on most laptop computers, or that it is 200x more accurate than anything else on the market .  It is so accurate it can read the slightest movement up to 1/100th of a millimeter.  Leap Motion has been in development for nearly 4 years, and quantities are limited.  Might be something I pre-order myself. 

2. Worlds first zero-carbon, sustainable city– The city is being built by a company called Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company.  The city will be run by solar and renewable energies. The city will offer homes for around 45,000-50,000 people and 1,500 businesses. Originally planned to be completed in 2016 the date has unfortunately been pushed back to 2025. But, what is very important to understand is that by creating a eco-friendly city, Dubai let’s the world know that it can be done. I feel as though new green energy technology will be developed because of this project. 

3. Prepare to welcome the Woolly Mammoth back in 2016– Back in 2008 cloning techniques were discovered by Dr. Teruhiko Wakayama of the Riken Centre for Developmental Biology.  Apparently, all the scientists need is a “good sample of tissue”. Once the team isolates a healthy nuclei from Mr. Woolly, they will then use an African elephant as a substitute host. You can read more about the process here

4. Immortality to billionaires A Russian entrepreneur is calling out to all billionaires to help fund his research project claiming to offer immortality to human beings. This entrepreneur has snagged 30 scientists to work on this “Avatar Project”. His aim is to transplant a human brain into a robot body within 10 years.  If this does become a technology of 2020, I should be able to afford it if I live until 2050.  I would love to live forever, because there is so much yet to be discovered. Who knows, 30 scientists and a lot of funding could go a long way.  Only time will tell.

One thought on “New Technology Around The Corner

  1. The idea of living forever by transplanting your brain into a robot body is mind blowing but at the same time, very conceivable. We already have robotic/artificial arms, legs, etc. It’s not that much of a stretch to consider putting all that technology together to form a fully robotic body. The last and probably most difficult thing would be to figure out how to synch the body with the person’s brain so that the person could see, hear, and move as they normally would. 100 years from now half of us could be robots. If this could technology actually came about, I don’t see the government allowing it to be used. Over population is already a problem, just imagine if people stopped dying? Not to mention that only the rich would initially be able to afford this technology, so all the poor and middle class people would die off, while the rich would live forever and control us all. While this technology seems possible, I don’t see it ever being allowed to go mainstream. #contest
