Transformative bits of technology are all set to revolutionize present-day reality and make the future unpredictable. Here are what the future beholds. For the curious minds, the upcoming future holds incomparable apparitions of evolvement and intrigue. It is cent percent true that technology, when combined with the best human minds, has the power to change the world. We should consider ourselves privileged when it comes to witnessing a time where science and its innovations make our lives easier. Future technology will be much more than flying cars and robots. Even complex matters like life after death will become much clearer to understand with technology. For better or worse, these mind-boggling future inventions will only bring an unprecedented march of change.

Fusion power
Burning of fossil fuels, or simply renewable energy, to produce power might soon be an outdated thing. Just a kilogram of deuterium hauled out from water could provide electricity to millions of houses. The idea of generating limitless power through a fusion reactor is unparalleled, and it would completely modify the way we live. Say goodbye deadly radioactive waste and greenhouse gas emissions.

Space tourism
Traveling to any corner of the world has now become so much easier than it was. But, what if we tell you that you can soon visit Mars with your boy gang on the weekend? Several companies are working on space tourism and making it a reality. Of course, you will only be able to go if you’re extremely wealthy, as the seats are expensive.

Lab-grown meat
Humans use up three-quarters of the world’s livestock and half of the habitable land for agriculture. Many countries are trying to meet the demand by supplying meat at a suspicious amount of time. Sadly, that is putting indirect pressure on nature and its resources. Lab-grown meat could radically reduce this burden on the environment while cutting water usage and gas emissions.

Reincarnation of the dead
This is probably one of the most controversial topics, and it definitely causes a spark for debates among many. But, apparently, reincarnation shall be possible through artificial intelligence by 2050. Nanobots inserted into a human’s brains could extract the memories of loved ones. This, augmented with a DNA sample of the dead, could make it possible to create a virtual version of someone from the grave.

Trains faster than any mode of transport
This proposed mode of transportation is faster than a normal aircraft. It will take you merely 29 minutes to travel from New York to Washington, D.C. That’s approximately 230 miles, which takes about 4 hours by road. Powered by Elon Musk’s Hyperloop, these trains can speed up to 760 mph through a vacuum tube and travel underground or underwater.

3D printed organs
Punctured lungs? Failed kidneys? In the future, you can legit print them out. We’re not moderately close to replicators, like in Star Trek. However, 3D printing is evolving rapidly, with corporations experimenting with printing human organs. A “bio ink” made of cells has resulted in “bioprinting” of functional human tissues. Although it is not perfect, we are getting close.

Life-recording camera
Called the “Narrative Clip,” this pedometer-sized camera records extremely high-definition geo-tagged images every 30 seconds in a practice called “life-logging.” At the end of the day, the Clip uploads all photos and videos to the vendor’s cloud service, where they are processed and organized. Would you be interested in recording every moment of your life, or are there some things you’d rather forget?

Connecting minds straight to the cloud
Say ciao to forgetting memories. Nanobots of the future will be able to connect your mind directly to the cloud, giving you the power to harness those early memories from when you were in your mother’s womb. In the future, you will be able to expand your neocortex in the cloud, just like we do with our smartphones. A spooky yet intriguing idea, indeed.

Fully immersive virtual reality
Gear up, get in, and never logout. The fully immersive virtual reality is an invention that would help to forgo the line between the real and unreal world. This tech can create the most powerful simulations to keep the brain perpetually busy. Imagine how powerful a full-dive VR type of technology would be! Why face cruel reality when you can exist in a virtual world forever?

Holography
Certain unknown corners of the technology realm are still working on holography at the moment. Future tech won’t require a special set of eyeglasses, which the current AR and VR apps are limited to. A seamless 3D hologram will allow you to experience a non-stop perception of talking to someone who lives thousands of miles away as if they were sitting right next to you.

Reversing paralysis
This commonly known disease has no cure. But, scientists are positive that the future will be bright and hopeful. Researchers are working on a small electronic chip, which, once inserted, will send signals for the body to move, bypassing the damaged neural system. Although the progress is slow, people affected by paralysis will be able to live a normal life.

Tooth sensor
Say goodbye to expensive trips to the dentist in the future. Tooth sensor, as the name suggests, is placed in your teeth. It would help track glucose, salt, and alcohol levels in your body. It also alerts you of bacteria, cavities, and plaques. Engineers at Princeton University and Tufts University are developing this tooth sensor, and we just hope it can withstand our flossing routine.

Mind-reading technology
Admit it; we have all wished to have the ability to read people’s minds. Knowing what another human thinks would not only be a boon but a powerful weapon, if made available to the right people. Psychologists are already working on developing software that will be accessible sometime soon in the future. We absolutely cannot wait for this one.

Time machine
There are about a hundred movies and series based on the idea of time travel. And the good news is, it’s finally close. Researchers have made a breakthrough by recreating time dilation that takes place near the black hole. Scientists claim that it can fold time into a circle. To do this, we need “exotic matter” material, which sadly has not been invented. We came quite close this time.

Invisibility cloak
A team of visionary scientists were able to successfully render an object invisible in broad daylight by using a technique called “spectral cloaking.” The experiment was conducted by using a fiber optic cable and a laser light. For those living under a rock, an invisibility cloak makes whoever or whatever wearing it invisible. Definitely buying this one to get away from uncomfortable situations.

Jetpack
Air travel is all set to revolutionize with this invention. A New Zealand-based company has invented a jetpack, which allows you to fly by yourself. As of now, the jetpack has fans instead of jets and can only stay in the air for half an hour. However, they’re working on upgrading it, so we have plenty of time to save money. We hope they come with an on-sale date soon.

Male contraceptive pills
You will be surprised to know that extra doses of testosterone can act as one of the most promising contraceptives for men. In fact, doubling natural levels reduces sperm production. Clinical trials have proved that some medicines are as effective as female contraceptives. The side-effects may include mood swings, weight gain, or acne. We wonder how men feel about this one in particular.
Cyborgs en.wikipedia.org

Cyborgs
In our unpopular opinion, humans have already become part cyborgs. Contact lenses can repair short-sightedness, and hearing implants reinstate hearing abilities. In the near future, scientists may be able to restore blindness and control artificial limbs as smoothly as we blink our eyes. The word “specially abled” will soon be erased from the English dictionary, and we’re all for it.

Robot butlers
Nothing frustrates us more than boring and redundant chores. And robots are here to save us from our misery. Smart vacuum cleaners have already been a norm for a couple of years, so robot butlers should not surprise you in the future. They would be larger, and we can’t wait to get our chores done through them. *sighs in contentment*

Gesture-based computing
Is it too much to ask for a future where we are no longer restricted by laptops and phones to access the Internet? In the future, voice and action would be able to manipulate data into virtual space— like Tony Stark— and would be the new future norm. We can already predict that this particular tech will become popular in no time.
