Scientific breakthroughs that could radically change the life of mankind

From augmented reality and living prostheses to flying cities, the future holds many surprises for us. In fact, the technologies of the future already exist, but they are very expensive. Here are the top 15 technological innovations that could completely change our lives in the future.

1) Self-healing organs

This technology has already been developed, but it is not yet perfect enough. In short, such organs will be grown using stem cells.

2) Ferromagnetic polymers

In simple terms, it is magnetic plastic. It would seem, why do we need this invention? It's simple - the reserves of metal on our planet are running out, so this material may soon replace metal in many industries.

3) Farmed meat

We can grow meat in laboratories. Frankly speaking, we can do it now, but the technology is still too expensive to build mass production on it.

4) Ice harvest

Ice collection from the asteroid belt. Unfortunately, the reserves of water on earth are limited, but there is much more water in the solar system.

5) artificial intelligence

In general, the idea that computers will learn to learn is a little scary. But this is already a reality. The machines can already learn, update and change software settings. We can only guess where we will come in 50 years.

6) Upgrade kids

This development can be explained as a technology for working with genes, allowing them to be modeled. Don't be surprised if people soon start producing "improved" babies. Perhaps this will happen the fastest in China - they somehow relate to the issues of genetic engineering more easily.

7) Flying cities

Yes - it's possible ... on Venus. The fact is that the surface of this planet is not very friendly for life. But at an altitude of 50 kilometers, everything is more optimistic: temperature, pressure and gravity - all these parameters almost perfectly coincide with those on Earth. In fact, Venus is much more suitable for settlement than Mars. Would you like to live in a cloudy city, or even a cloudy world?

8) Epigenetics

This word, unfamiliar to many, implies that we will be able to program and reprogram ourselves in real time by controlling our own genes.

9) Quantum computers

Simply put, computers will become very, extremely, and incredibly powerful! This will happen due to the fact that quantum computers will be able to solve problems much faster and more efficiently, will be able to "dig deeper". The idea behind this invention is called superposition. The fact is that at the quantum level, particles do not follow many of the laws of physics that we perceive as unshakable. As a result, these particles can be in two states at the same moment, and therefore we will be able to perform tens of times more operations simultaneously.

10) Living prostheses

From augmented reality and living prostheses to flying cities, the future holds many surprises for us. In fact, the technologies of the future already exist, but they are very expensive. Here are the top 15 technological innovations that could completely change our lives in the future.

By the word "alive" we mean that such a prosthesis will not only be able to receive impulses from the brain (to carry out movements), but also transmit information back, reporting pain, pressure or temperature.

11) artificial brain

In fact, this technology involves copying the human brain, perhaps by creating a software copy of it for subsequent reconstruction in the form of a computer. Of course, beyond the technical challenges, this idea raises many ethical issues and controversies.

12) Dyson Orbs

Despite the fact that this technology is still being developed, the essence boils down to a massive structure that can completely surround a star (like our sun) and redirect its energy to the goals of humanity.

13) Super fast monorail

This type of monorail is already being tested in California. Now imagine that you can get from Tokyo to New York in less than 15 minutes.

14) Rebirth of Extinct Species

Thanks to the latest genetic breakthroughs, we will soon be able to revive extinct species. Give the Jurassic period!

15) Augmented reality

Everyone who wears contact lenses will soon receive not just lenses, but also augmented reality. When looking at the first object that comes across, a person will be able to obtain information about this object.
