The future is not far off.
Over the past hundred years of fiction promises us a future filled with gyrometers, force fields, cloaks invisible and lunar bases. Many technologies from science fiction have become scientific reality, for example, cell phones and super computers. Then why not laser swords.
Unfortunately, our dreams about how to get to and from work on own aircraft is likely to remain dreams, but many may be surprised at how close we are to the development of many futuristic technologies, which yesterday was impossible even to imagine.
Individual jet pack
Since then, as Germany tried to use them to overcome minefields soldiers during the Second world war, the use of jet packs for the most part limited to classic British spy films and astronauts. Perhaps this device will be one of the first that can be removed from the list of unfulfilled fantasies, because the company Martin Aircraft from New Zealand have just signed a multimillion-dollar deal, which should open the way to their commercial use.
Of course, to some extent, this is already implemented, but we are talking about the level of “the Matrix”, that is, direct information flow in the human brain. However, given the advances that occur in this area in the last few years, the wait is long.
Food in tablets
It may be tempting someday to be able to get all the nutrients immediately, without chewing, most likely, this item will remain on the list for some time. On average our body requires about 2 thousand calories a day, but even if we turn them into sverhkaloriynogo filled with all the necessary medication, you still have to eat about 300 grams of this feed before heading to bed. Although, hope remains, because scientists say that they are about to invent a chewing gum that somehow, some way simulates a three-course meal.
Depending on how to define this concept, cyborgs unable to admit or not to admit reality. In fact, there are already numerous cases of people losing a body part, I replace it with mechanized versions. As for Robocop protecting the streets from criminals… this is going to have to wait.
If in the future everything will be bulletproof, the victory will be a person in whose hands the laser gun. Of course, the military already has laser guns, but they shoot only invisible rays, and that means we will have to wait. In any case, no one will know that you are a good guy with a laser gun, of course, until we find ourselves in a bulletproof future.
The meaning of vulenerability is that the material is protected from destruction. Fiction has long recommends that all valuable was just surrounded by force fields. But, seriously, a similar technology is already used in the military sphere. Some tanks protected by a detection system of approaching shells. They release an electric charge surrounding the machine, which deflects the trajectory of the rocket.
Not to be confused with cyborgs! The Android is 100 percent machine without a single human body part. However, between them have something in common – both are very close to becoming a reality, thanks to the tremendous advances made in recent decades in the field of artificial intelligence.
Since then, as Plato two and a half thousand years ago mentioned the Atlantis, humanity looks forward to open or create a giant underwater empires. Unfortunately, our dreams of the underwater Kingdom has repeatedly suffered failure. The water pressure in the ocean is too large for all, with the exception of specially constructed submersibles. However, as a consolation, all over the world chock full of resorts.
No one will be seriously upset due to the fact that we still haven’t mastered such technologies as time travel or teleportation. But the lack of flying cars is really a big disappointment. Moreover, we cannot say that we have no such technologies. After all, if you think the plane plus the car is flying car. So, one could assume that the authorities hide them from us until then. Do not trust, however.
