Significant Things That Will Certainly Happen In The Near Future
On 30th January 2018
Life is changing. New technology, new equipment, and new products come rapidly into our lives. What was unheard of for previous generations is already nothing unusual to us, and this transformation happens every day. We have picked a few items that are practically on our driveways already. And there’s a long-term bonus at the end.
It may be sci-fi at the moment, but never say never! Who knows? We may witness a human brain being connected to a computer sooner than we think.
Although it may sound like fantasy, it seems that this day is closer then we think. Just, please, don’t leave anyone on Mars.
Self-driving vehicles could be ubiquitous in the next 10 years.
Whether that comes in the form of a car is up for debate, Pearson said.
Pearson described a ride-sharing system where people would order "cheap steel boxes" that could drive people around. The pod-like system would be a more cost-effective driverless system than something complicated like a driverless car.
Still, with so many automakers and tech companies working self-driving cars, it does seem likely we could see one in use in a decade.
People could start using robots to do work around their house and provide companionship starting in 2030.
Whenever anybody has tried to predict the future, robots always come into it sooner or later.
With robots as an everyday occurrence in many industrial settings, it is becoming ever more likely that they will also invade our homes.
It's tempting to envision the domestic help robots of the 50s futurists, with humanoid bots rolling around our homes, cooking the dinner and letting the dog out, but the reality is probably going to be a bit more subtle.
Rather than just putting robots inside our houses, the next 20 years will probably see our houses themselves becoming more robotic. Smart homes will have technology woven throughout them, allowing us to connect, control and interface with our dwellings. The Internet of Things is already embedding technology in pretty much all of our belongings, and being able to connect everything to everything else and control it all from your phone is a trend that is set to continue.
Actual in-house robots are less likely to have four limbs and a face, in favor of a more device-based vision of the future. We are only just beginning to let go of our dreams of an all-purpose butler-bot, and are instead developing specialized devices to help us around the house. The internet's favourite Brave Little Hoover, the Roomba, is just the beginning of our relationship with automated home-help
