Here’s an article that tries to find the most influential technologies to come. What about it? Do you think one of them will change the way we live or work? I do.
I think his 9th technology will definitely change things for us. Evans points out, “We think nothing of using pacemakers.” In the next 10 years, he believes medical technologies will grow vastly more sophisticated as computing power becomes available in smaller forms. Devices such as nanobots and the ability to grow replacement organs from our own tissues will be the norm. “The ultimate integration may be brain-machine interfaces that eventually allow people with spinal cord injuries to live normal lives,” he says.
Today we have mind-controlled video games and wheelchairs, software by Intel that can scan the brain and tell what you are thinking and tools that can actually predict what you are going to do before you do it.
I normally write elsewhere about jobs and work in the future, but I thought this post might give my MyPersonalPhone audience a chance to understand why mobile devices are the passport to the information world. This post illustrates how quickly changes happen.
I started writing about the ten technologies and find many more in the press today or over the recent past. I’d better quit writing or this post will expand again.
