3 Glimpses Of Our Amazing Future
Technology is tech is changing the world as we know it. Just 20 years ago, no one had heard of mobile apps or the idea of a smart home yet they are now part of our everyday experience.
The interesting thing about a radical change in technology is that ideas compound on each other. The result of all this innovation is a massive growth in human knowledge. It’s estimated that the rate of human knowledge will double every 12 hours before long. Currently, it’s estimated that human knowledge is doubling every 13 months.
Inventions lead to an increase in human knowledge and human knowledge leads to more inventions. We now live in a time where technological advances are considered the new normal.
Here are three startling innovations which are destined to change the world as we know it.
1. 3D Printing.
You’re familiar with printing out a report, but what about printing out a car? Well, the Strati was the first 3-D printed car printed in Detroit printed out of a carbon-fiber reinforced plastic. In fact, the excitement to print things has become so popular that it’s become something of a movement.
2. Faster Internet Connections.
Hyperfast Internet connections will make our current technology for high-speed Internet look slow by comparison. Perhaps as slow as AOL’s dial-up modem appears to a modern DSL user, whose internet speed ranges from 1.5Mbps speeds up to 8Mbps. For billions of us, the internet is indispensable. It’s arguably more popular than TV, which was first invented by Scottish engineer John Logie Baird in 1923 in Hastings, England.
3. Hyperloop One
Science fiction’s images of flying cars are actually more believable than the idea of the Hyperloop. Dismayed by the news of the California High-Speed Rail System’s project of creating a bullet train, Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, critiqued it as one of the most expensive yet slowest bullet trains in the world.
The Future is Here Now
While we’ve looked at just three projects, each of them gives us a glimpse of how amazing the future is going to be. 3-D printing is already a reality; hyperfast internet is just around the corner, and the Hyperloop transportation model is slowly morphing into our consciousness and our reality. It’s all beginning to sound like a script from a George Jetson cartoon about the marvels of a utopian future.
