A Peak Into the Future: A Futurist Makes the Predictions
A House with a Brain
Currently, smart homes are in the beginning stages but in the future your home will do whatever you say from cutting on the lights, making bath water to even cooking for you. And when it happens it will happen from just hearing you say a command. I am not talking just a sprinkler system here. In the near future your house will talk back and forth with you and try to meet your needs. Tell the water faucet to run warm bath water at your usual temp and witness it happen. This idea, in full capacity, would make me very lazy at home. On the other hand, with more time on your hands you can do other more important things. Turn on the lights, stove, microwave, television, heat and much more with a simple voice command.
Audi Flying Car Prototype
Self driving cars are well on their way but in the future be prepared to fly your automobile in the skies. Imagine some drive by road rules while others hover above with fly car sky rules. As of 2017, Google is really working on this project but I predict floating stop signs and red lights in the sky to deal with the thousands of cars in the air. The big thing is that these flying cars will all be autonomous because humans will sometimes wreck if they fly and they would die from the fall to the ground. Safety should always come first but they sure would help cut down on traffic congestion. After further testing these cars will first be for use only above water before becoming useful all over the skies. In time, flying cars will beome the standard mode of transportation.

User Interface Meet Mr. Brain
I envision something similar to Elon Musk's Neuralink becoming a way of life by 2030. Sensors will be in our brains that will let us access a cell phone, television, internet and much more. Think about dialing a cell number and the call will happen. The future is here whether you are ready or not. It is not for everyone but it is gonna happen among us with lots of people and humanoids. This is one thing that is going to come to fruition that I do not endorse nor like at all in any fashion. It is scary to me to think about it but I will say that this is top flight futuristic to say the least. People who are against this idea may get a choice to wear a headband to mimic the idea.
Elon Musk and his Companies
Building Cities on Mars
NASA, SpaceX and many others are on a mission to bring the human race to the red planet and we will get there. We will start to build cities that can sustain life and produce needed things such as plant life. More than likely some type of shield will be built to keep us from burning up or freezing. People will not see this "force field shield" but it will be helping us cope with the harshness of mars. It will stretch high above us and in far off, marked off areas of land. Sounds farfetched but we have to do something in order to survive and thrive on the alien red planet. Let us just hope that we do not find something or someone we do not want to meet while we are invading or traveling if you prefer to other worlds.

Same Income For All
Fixed Income For 90% of Population
Some countries, such as Canada, are currently trying the plan of Universal Basic Income in some areas. One day, robots, machines and A.I. equipped cyborgs will do almost all the jobs of the human population. Since folks will not work they will all receive the exact same income. It will actually be helpful to the poor but it will also shut off tons of jobs that people used to do. So with all things being equal I suppose materialism will be down the drain. Not positive about this idea, I will just have to wait and see how it plays out.
Would you buy a flying car if you could get one?
Seeing is Believing
Virtual Reality Sunglasses
In the next 10 years Virtual Reality will be a part of life. Regular sunglasses will look like they always do into you turn them on via voice command. at which time, your environment will transform, including people, into a VR world. We will still have games and videos to watch but now our own environment will become engulfed in VR with the sunglasses. You cannot tell the difference in the looks of the virtual reality sunglasses compared to how the ordinary sunglasses look and feel. Perfect when you are lying on the beach getting a tan to get a 3D , 360 degree view of the beach and ocean right before you. Amazing is all I can think of with this idea that is well on its way.
Back to the Future
Levitating Hover Shoes
Just like we now have hoverboards to a degree we will someday have hover shoes that will levitate a several inches off the ground and let you float instead of walk. It will go around the same speed as a normal walk and if u lift the front of the shoe slightly it will go a little faster. To stop completely, you will lift the heel of the right foot in the air and then you will hover in place. To lower to the ground and turn off shoe for just waling you lift both heels out at the same exact time. These guys will be great especially for someone who has a broken foot because he can still go without crutches.
