This points to new advancements in the interface between bionics and nerves. There has been development in brain directed movements of a bionic hand. This research project moves the science into actually feeling through the hand.
For years, dating back to the launch of my futurist blog in 2006, I have envisioned a new consciousness and way for humans to communicate brain to brain. Here is early research towards that possibility. Wait for the 2020s!!
We have featured entrepreneurs and visionaries in these two subjects. Here is GE, one of the great companies, showing their vision of how these two transformative technologies will transform and redefine manufacturing for the 21st century.
If this can be proven to be as portable, efficient and low cost as is implied in this video, these and subsequent iterations will become ubiquitous
A new take on the old immersion heater. Good stats on unnecessary energy use, something humans are really good at doing.
This has always been a theme in science fiction. Now there seems to be a real possibility that by the end of this century we might well have done so. Perhaps a good thing to do AFTER we stabilize and reverse the degradation of Earth we seem to be so good at doing.
From Siri to Neural Networks. Our interface with computers will be ever more touch and voice.
A hollywood collaboration that actually advances science. Great visuals!
Okay, this is a bit techy, but nevertheless very cool. We will shortly be able to make what we wear and our personal surroundings touch screens. By 2020 we will say to one another: “Remember when our only touch screens were on phones and tablets?”
Virtual reality will, without question, be one of the most transformative technologies in the next 20 years. This basic example points to being able to tour all major museums virtually. In addition to simply replicating in 3-D, the tour will provide full information on each and every work of art.
