For this challenge we were instructed to write a post about something we were passionate about to do with science. I have decided to write mine about technologies of the future.
How would you like to spend a week in a hotel? What about if that hotel was in space, orbiting earth, thousands of miles away? Or how about a computer that scans your kitchen with lasers and tells you what to make for dinner based on the ingredients you already have? Well, if you like these ideas then you are going to love the future! These are some of the things that people are already working on that will make appearances sometime in this millennium.
There are many hopes for the future in technology. One thing many people are always trying to fix is to give handheld devices longer battery lives. One cool idea that is a solution to this problem is a kinetic energy charger. This is a small device that would clip onto your belt or pocket. It would take energy you emit when you are walking and transfer it via charger cable to your device.
But, not all future technologies are aiming towards cool gadgets and phones. Many future technologies will be based in the medical field, trying to save people’s lives. One of the coolest one sis called nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is basically making technology that is as small as molecules. Millions of nano-bots could fit on a period on this post, and yet, they are fully functioning robots. Nano-bots will have tiny arms to move atoms and little electric brains. When this technology is fully developed, doctors will be able to put these minuscule robots into people, in the form of an injection or any other means, and the robots can find where the sickness is inside the person. The robots will then destroy the sickness and eventually disintegrate into the person’s body.
People are also trying to create technology that will help the environment They are trying to find greener alternatives to some of the more harmful things people are doing to the planet. People are always trying to find ways to get green energy. Things they are already doing are wind powered things or solar powered. In the future, they will be trying to make these means more efficient.
So, whether it is saving people’s lives, or simply having really cool gadgets, the future is looking very bright for us. But now, I have some questions for you. Many of these future technologies are created by thinking of a problem that we face and creating a technology that can solve this problem. What is one problem humans have that you can think of, and what technology would you invent to fix this problem?
