Future Technologies and innovation – Top 5

Future Technologies, Mankind’s next moves.

 

 

5 Initiatives that will change the World.

 

Technology is now part of our everyday lives, whatever we do, no matter where we are, it is undeniable that mankind is at its all-time peak of discoveries. We have so many engineers, learning facilities and such easy access to information in comparison to previous years. Here are some discoveries we believe if made, will dramatically change the world.

Future Technologies – 1 – Power Storage.

Right now, if you want to store power, your best chance is to use batteries, but guess what? What if some scientist was able to discover a way to store energy as much as possible? Surely, Oil prices will dramatically drop, since fossil energies will no longer be the priority the oil industry will certainly collapse. Therefore, whoever will be behind this achievement is going to shut down a multi-billion dollars Industry, making himself extremely wealthy. Electric cars will be preferred to combustion ones, plane tickets will surely drop since fuel will no longer be needed, but progressively, conventional planes will have to be replaced or reconfigured in order to operate under the new technology, an expensive alternative for airlines. There should no longer be power failures! Thus the entire world will be powered.

When you look at the possible benefits for us as users, you cannot forget about the super massive amount of money that will be lost by those gigantic industries relying on the actual energy generation system, a dramatic change.

Future Technologies – 2 – Space Mining.

What would happen when we can no longer get the most valuable stones here on earth due to excessive mining? Think about it, our gold, diamond and other precious metals reserves will not last forever, sooner or later they will be exhausted. Being aware of that fact, whoever manages to get at an acceptable cost, a shuttle loaded with a qualified personnel that can reach our solar universe rocky bodies out there (moons of other planets, asteroid, dwarf planets etc.) is most likely to make a fortune mining their minerals and precious stones. Millions of square miles unclaimed and just waiting for the next tycoon to land. Such initiative if going viral will give our dear planet some relief…

Future Technologies – 3 – Sea Worlds.

With the earth’s population constantly increasing to incredible numbers, it is very likely that the construction business will be willing to now launch projects beyond our shores. Whether at the surface or beneath sea level, water worlds would be a good alternative for mankind as it would ease the pressure of an overpopulated planet. Colossal structures will allow farming to be managed without needing anything from any continent, just the basic components. Sea Cities will start hosting few thousands at start, but very soon expand their borders to become mega-cities being homes to hundreds of thousands of people if not millions.

Future Technologies – 4 – Space Cities.

Mars is not the one I am referring to here, although they discovered water there, it is not possible to dwell in this planet for obvious reasons, it has no atmosphere (we will therefore be exposed to Ultraviolet rays from the sun), and gravity is very low, therefore very bad for our skeleton over a long period of time (whenever astronauts come back from space, they may require wheelchairs since their bodies is not ready to reconnect with Earth’s gravity).

But we can definitely be able to build worlds worthy of the movie “Elysium” with Matt Damon as the main Character. Just orbiting the earth, these structures will provide homes to thousands of people. The power needed to sustain such colony will be harvested from the Sun on a permanent basis, the only struggle being water management.

Future Technologies – 5 – Space Travel.

 

A considerable amount of resources has been allocated to the discoveries of exoplanets, planets in the universe that have several similarities with our own, thus potential candidates to host life. The only problem is, they are too far! In fact, the closest star to our solar system Proxima centaury is 4.37 light years away, meaning it would take more than 4 years to reach it at light speed. Most of the other stars are tens, hundreds if not thousands light years away from us, and with the present technology at our disposal there is no way we can reach them in our lifetime. But what if we could find a way to travel faster? Traveling faster in order to get to these far places will require to beat the speed of light, which is nearly 300,000 meters per second. A daunting task, since scientists believe it is impossible to do so! But back in the middle age, they believed the earth was flat! Therefore they might be room for a milestone here.
