Every day people around the world emerge with new methods to make our future brighter. We all dream of a bright, innovative, and healthy future in this world. With the development in technology, our expectations for the future have also increased. In this article, we will discuss the future technology that will alter the way we look at this world now.
Top 15 Future Technologies
According to future technology Wikipedia, it is “technologies that are perceived as capable of changing the status quo”. There are many people who predict the future differently. So let us get a sneak peek into such future technology predictions 2025.
We have put together a list of the most interesting advances in the future technology that will alter our world. Whether it is with improvement in health, solving the shortage of food, or making VR even better, technology will arrive in a better form in the future and handle all issues.
Human powered wearables
Scientists have found new ways to harvest the energy that is spent by you while exercising and convert them into electricity. At any time soon no one will be plugging themselves into a grid, it is being believed by the researchers at the University Of Colorado Boulder that their technology has the capacity to power a fitness tracker or a heart rate monitor.
The team was successful in fighting thermoelectric generators in film bands that are stretchable and can be worn around the wrist. The cost of making these bands is $10, and as they are made from polymers and liquid metals they are both easy to recycle and self healing.
Airports for flying taxis and drones
Our congested towns and cities are in real need of a relief and breather may come from the air as opposed to the polluted roads. Plans for a varied type of transport hub that include one for the delivery of electric air taxis and drones are becoming a reality with the initial Urban Airport that is getting funds from the UK government.
To build this, infrastructure is going to play a crucial role. Organizations like “Civil Aviation Authority” are looking into the construction of air corridors that might connect a city center with a local distribution center or airport.
Energy storing bricks
Scientists have discovered a way to store energy in the red bricks that are utilized in the building of houses. Researchers that are conducted by Washington University in St Louis, in Missouri, US, have formulated a method that can convert the widely available and cheap building material into “smart bricks” which will be able to store energy like a battery.
Even though the research is still in the stage of “proof of concept” according to the scientists, walls that will be made from these bricks “could store a substantial amount of energy” and can also “be recharged hundreds of thousands of times within an hour”.
Self healing “living concrete”
Scientists have formulated what they term “living concrete” by using sand, bacteria, and gel. According to researchers, this building material is equipped with a structural load bearing function and is capable of “self healing” and also more environmentally friendly compared to concrete which is said to be the second most consumed commodity on Earth after water.
According to the team from the University Of Colorado Boulder, this discovery paves the way for building structures in the future that could, “heal their own cracks, suck up dangerous toxins from the air or even glow on command”.
Internet for everyone
Presently we cannot live without the internet, but still, only half of the globe’s population is connected through the web. There are many reasons for this, social and economic barriers are just a few points in that list. But the most important reason is the accessibility of the internet.
Google is slowly trying to resolve the issue with the help of helium balloons to pillar the internet in areas where it is not accessible. Facebook has refused to go with the plans of using the drones, which implies that the entities like Hiber are stealing a march.
Crowd sourced antibiotics
A part of surfing includes swallowing sea water. But now scientists behind a new initiative known as Beach Bums want to swab the rectums of surfers to check if this water contains the key in the development of new antibiotics.
Artificial neurons on silicon chips
Scientists have paved a new way to add artificial neurons onto silicon chips, replicating the neurons on our nervous system and duplicating their electrical properties. According to the project manager from the University of Bath, Professor Alain Nogaret,
Some Other Future Technology In Our List
The list of future technology ideas that we have seen above is the top 7 in our list. But innovation is endless and we cannot bind them in 7 mere points. So here are the rest of the future technology predictions.
8. Artificial eyes look to the future: After being in the fiction for ages, Bionic eyes are now entering the mainstream. A range of technologies is arriving at the market that will provide sight to visually challenged people.
9. Robotic guide dogs: A student at Loughborough University has formulated a “robotic guide dog” that will offer support to visually challenge people who are unable to pet a real animal.
10. Sweat powered smartwatches: Researchers at the University of Glasgow have designed a new form of the flexible supercapacitor, which stocks energy, replacing the electrolytes that are found in conventional batteries with sweat.
11. Living robots: Small hybrid robots made using cells of the stem from frog embryos can one day be employed to swim around human bodies to some particular areas that require medicine or to accumulate microplastic in the oceans.
12. Tactile virtual reality: Researchers from Northwestern University have formulated a prototype device that focuses to put touch within the reach of VR, by using a flexible material that is fitted with tiny vibrating elements that can be added to the skin.
13. Heart monitoring T-shirt: Using a single lead ECG that is printed into the fabric, this new t-shirt from KYMIRA will calculate your heart beats accurately and upload them to the cloud through Bluetooth.
14. Drown forest fires in sound: Forest fires could one day be handled by drones that would provide loud noises at the trees below. Since sound is composed of pressure waves, it can be used to cut off the air surrounding a fire, mainly discarding the supply of oxygen to the fuel. At the correct frequency, the fire simply dies out, as demonstrated by the researchers at George Mason University in Virginia with their sonic extinguisher.
15. Pleistocene Park: Russian scientist Sergey Zimov wishes to recreate a 12,000-year-old environment in a wildlife park for herbivores like bison and wild horse, with extinct megafauna like mammoths replaced by modern hybrids. The impact of animals on the climate and environment will be studied by Zimov.
It is very interesting to witness the pace and the potential for transformation in the present day’s innovative technologies that are being applied to solve the most pressing issues of the globe. This development in future technology is going to alter the way we live. As humans, we must continue to bring visibility and changes in technology for the betterment of this globe as a whole.
