Whilst talking with some other Hubber's we were disscussing new technologies, and i thought it would make for a good disscussion here!
So what technological, scientific or engineering advancement do you think will cause man to advance the most and why?
Nanotechnology, Quantum computing, the mermister, superstring theory, sustainable energy...
These are just some the list is endless and i appreciate peoples thoughts on the matter.
Cloning. Who wouldn't want a clone of a supermodel?
Who wouldn't want a clone of themselves? I'd make them do all the work.
Do you know what that one didn't even cross my mind, think there will be too many legislations for it to really take off though.. But clones to do work would be nice...means I could do this more The models wouldn't be bad either
What about cybernetics? combining organic matter and robots they could also do your work, and maybe look like a super model but not sure gives a whole new meaning to "are they real?"
Cloning mixed with genetic engineering, and cybernetic implants= ultimate clone, or dream woman.
hopefully all of the above technologies if we can make it for a hundred years...
Yeah, they say that 2012 is the end of the world as we know it...
Yeah, as long as we don't destroy ourselves first but I am an optimist so i am gonna stay hopeful
Can't wait for Smell O' Vision...That stuff will revolutionize the entertainment world...everything...
What about bio technology - from clones to pill shaped beans; trees that grow into houses, fireflies that light up the streets; or bacteria that could clean our teeth, shave us, bathe us and so on.
Although my first thought was something like the Supersonics. Did anyone ever see them?
Bio-technology is certainly a massive field, but I think in the political blame climate we live in at the moment, bio-sciences especially genetic modification , using organisms to perform tasks and cloning will be hampered by policy, due to fears and posible political backlash.
Don't get me wrong i would love to see an explosion of applications in these fields but things unfortunatly need to change first.
I love the idea of tree's growing into houses and fire flies lighting our streets really paints a nice picture
Energy is one of the biggest problem of the world today. Any technology that can solve future energy issues will be the one that will advance us in next 100years. The technology should not just solve the energy issue but should make sure that it do not effect our environment. Environment concerns are yet another big challenge today.
I watched a program on Nat Geo today (3 hours long) about autistic and prodigious savants. They have determined that the "flaws" in the brains of these miraculous humans are what give them these extraordinary "powers". They have tested this by using magnetic fields to temporarily "stunt" a portion of a "normal" person's brain, thus allowing that person to exhibit talents he usually would not be able to demonstrate. It used a non-surgical method and the results were incredible. However the effects were quite short-lived.
If they could come up with a device that would allow (on a long-term basis) anyone to become an instant Maestro at the piano, a super mathematician, or an incredible creative writer just by strapping on a device for a few minutes, I think that would be unbelievable!
I think the USA should concentrate on energy, infrastructure, and equality of all citizens. Turn this country into what it was born to be; one with hope and the desire to live your dreams, freedom to think and believe, hope for a happier future, and life without fear......
According to me it is Nanotechnology that advance man kind in next 100 years.
Quantum mechanics wins all.
Creating food from garbage (remodifying molecules)
Desalination of water in portable use
Other sources of energy (clean, etc.)
The definitive explanation of string theory which will lead to possible time travel and inter universe travel. Mind control technology.

Should we allow controlled cloning of humans?

Space missions-is it wastage of money? no benefit for mankind-spin offs technologies.Indian space agency celebrated 100th rocket launch, NASA's successful Mars probe.The critique say that this is wastage of funds, better utilize for human development.Usually they have jargon ,big boys and their...

This is a topic I am forever mulling over in my curious mind; I'm just as curious to know what everybody else thinks about this? Where will we be as a race in 500 years time? Will we still be here?Will we have achieved colonization of the moon, Mars etc?Will wars still be waged?I'm interested in...

What Century Are We In Now? When Does A Century Starts And Ends?

Have we reached the maximum human population carrying capacity?If you refer to the picture, this can be observed when viewing population of bacteria growing in a petri dish. If Earth is the petri dish, where do you think humans are on this chart? Is our population about to crash?
