Necessity is the mother of invention, we usually talk about this. And this has resulted in a number of changes we are watching from the decades. We are all above from that when we were expecting innovation merely in terms of products or services. The way the humans interact with each other or the earth, all will be taken into account.
Futurists have come with a number of innovative ideas for the future of machines and science that either enhance or replace activities and products which surround us. People who have better ideas and hope to innovate better tools in field of technology continuously work for serving something new, which could benefit a lot. Many inventions remain limited to their birth place that is lab, we are not at all aware of them and they never make it into the consumer market. While others evolve beyond the pace of putting good regulations on their use. So it’s very important that the main user should know about it.
Futurist Brian David Johnson sees the future advance of computing to so small a size that the housing for the computer itself is almost zero. We have the technology to put computers almost anywhere and in almost anything. Computers used to take up entire rooms, then whole desktops, laps and palms, to micro-chip-sized casings and atom-powered transistors invisible to the naked eye.
Many have predicted that the shrinking of computing size would also lead to the end of something called Moore’s Law. Gordon E. Moore, a co-founder of Intel, famously predicted that every two years the numbers of transistors on a chip will roughly double every 24 months.
It has been around for a while, but 3D printing is becoming more affordable, which in itself will unleash a host of new inventions and applications, pushing beyond prototypes and models. Scientists have been experimenting using the technology to reconstruct human tissue.
Even Smarter Apps
Mobile applications can already identify what song is playing, point you to a nearby restaurant, or manage your social networking utilities, but that was just the start. The relatively low cost of entry and the speed at which an app hits or misses creates a environment ripe for breakthrough innovation. What’s next could be the first big business to arise from the downturn.
Learning to “Feel the Force”
New toys will hark back to the 1980s, when science and math ruled the store shelves, but will have a futuristic twist. This Star Wars “Force Trainer” toy, which comes out in July 2009, measures a child’s brain waves. The child then concentrates to control the ball in the tube.
While parts of Asia and Europe enjoy speedy Internet, much of the rest of the world can often feel as if it’s still on dial-up. Efforts to build nationwide WiMax networks (high speed wireless) have fizzled. Without fast connections, services like Internet video, online banking, and business telecommunications are stymied. The ability to access the marketplace from anywhere will reduce costs, expand networks, and save time.
