Technology 2050: Terrifying Innovations In The Future:
These technological inventions will pave the way for a safer future.
Sure, back then we had the concept of artificial intelligence and robotics, but the sophistication these technologies have now is baseless. On the contrary, imagine the scene a decade into the future.
Are we going to live like the Jetsons with flying cars? Will food shortages end with floating farms? Will we live in smart bio bubbles? The possibilities are endless, but in practice there are some great innovations that can become a reality. Excited ?
1. Bionic eyes
Alister “made-eye” trend started by Moody from Harry Potter; researchers are actually working to make it a reality. In January 2021, Israeli surgeons inserted the world’s first artificial cornea into a blind 78-year-old man. After surgery, the man was able to read and recognize family members because the implant has the ability to fuse from human tissue.
2. Airport for flying taxis
In the era of black and white, flying cars were proposed to become a reality. But speculators didn’t think the technology was strong enough.. But as cities are now overcrowded, delivering electricity and flying taxis are becoming a reality with drones being the first urban airport to receive funding from the UK government. Those in the making run by hydrogen generators as a clean alternative to fuel.
3. Bricks with the energy.
Smart devices? Move on and on! It’s time for smart bricks. Scientists have found a way to store energy in the bricks that build houses. Researchers at Washington University in Missouri have developed a brick that can act as batteries. Although this technology is still in its early stages, in the future, it could store considerable amounts of energy.
4. Sweat running smart watch.
Gym fans and techally lazy people unite, engineers at the University of Glasgow have developed a new type of smart wearable that stores energy from sweat. It replaces the electrovalates found in traditional batteries and can be fully charged with just 20 microliters of fluid. The sweat is about to reach the device through her cloth cover.
5. A living robot.
According to science, this is a huge breakthrough for technology. Tiny hybrid robots made from stem cells from Merrick Brannon could one day collect microplastics for medical purposes or swim in human bodies in the ocean.
6. The attention of heart monitoring.
Heart monitors are no longer new, but the accuracy is objectionable. Using the same lead ECG printed on fabric, KYMIRA is working on making smart t-shirts. This piece of clothing will accurately measure heartbeats and upload to the cloud via Bluetooth. Algorithms will analyze statistics, find abnormalities in heart rate and inform the user.
7. Car batteries super fast charging.
The problem with electric cars is their charging speed and a fast charging battery will fix that problem. Fast charging of lithium ion batteries can ruin their life. So, Penn State University researchers have found that if the batteries can heat up to 60°C for 10 minutes and cool at broad temperatures, heat damage can be avoided. The battery itself will use thermal discharge and fast cooling system will be developed inside the car.
8. Silicon chips with artificial neurons.
Researchers have found a way to attach human-like neurons to silicon chips that would mimic the electrical properties of real neurons. If this petition is successful, it could lead to a cure for heart failure and even Alzheimer’s.
9. The Sound Technology for forest-fires.
Forest fires are a major threat to human life and the environment. With traditional methods, a mass fire can take weeks and months, but George Mason University researchers are working on a sound extinguisher. Since sound is made of pressure waves, it can disrupt air in a fire, and cut its supply around the fire to the correct frequency.
10. Self healing concrete.
Researchers use sand, gel and bacteria to create live concrete. According to experts, the material will have load-bearing and self-healing properties, which will be completely safe for the environment. The need for this kind of invention came from the fact that solid is the second used material on earth besides water.
