    2020 – What could be the most important technology innovations influencing our daily lives?

    While it may be difficult to exactly predict what the future holds, but definitely the rapid all round development of technology is going to influence almost every aspect of our life. Can we guess what would be these inventions poised to change the way we live ?

    I think 3-D technology will really take off. Not only can it print plastic items, they can also be used to print metallic items. In the near future, instead of going to the store for a part, we can just print what we need. It will be similar to the effect that laser printers had on documents.

      Thanks DATALOAD. What else you do see happening in 2020 ?

    Wonderful question. I truly believe that our technology will progress well and in good fashion.

    The breakthroughs will be in automated synchronization with thought. Moving my paralyzed legs or projecting my thoughts on a screen or coming through a screen as energy and not a photo.

    We need to make technology independent from a "keyboard" and lesson our need to conform to that keyboard. We will do this before 2020. And the beauty will be the drawback. The big Whoa!! and then a new emergence will be created. I only hope violence is not part of the drawback. And I shall work to make it not so. By infusing love.

    I agree with Dataload about 3D printing. Sometime around 2020 the Google search engine algorithm will become self-aware and launch a nuclear war against humanity. With our infrastructure destroyed, we will not have access to mass produced products. But distributed manufacturing through 3D printing will enable humanity to start rebuilding its technology and fight back against all the robots (mostly vacuum cleaners) which will be trying to kill us.

      Sounds possible, considering they update it nearly 500 times per year!

    Just recently, I thought a lot about what we will be using in a decade, what our lifes will be lead by and what technology will most likely develop into. I wrote a Hub about the Internet of Things, one development that will, in my opinion, be the biggest change in the near future.
    The IoT is a scenario in which all the things surrounding us are connected (the reason for this being so likely to come is, that the technology is already being developed). They are able to communicate with each other and act based on the amount of information they are able to store.
    An example would be the following: you go to sleep but you don't have to set the alarm because your smartphone already knows when you'll have to be at work the next day. So it calculates the average time you need for breakfast, to drive to work and to get ready, takes into account all possible and real delays and sets your alarm based on this information. I could go on, but this explains it pretty well.
    The interfaces will change too, of course. Maybe we won't have smartphones anymore but wristbands or tiny screenless buttons, who knows?
    But one thing is for sure: the world won't be looking much different than it is today, because we still have chairs, right? And they have been invented a long time ago.
