Images from Shutterstock.com Doctors will no longer need to use a needle and thread to seal wounds as new pen shaped devices are being developed which can do the same job but by using lasers and a blood protein called albumin. When heated at the right temperature it forms natural 'glue' after the skin has cooled down. Using this method allows wounds to be more stronger, water-tight and less likely to scar than traditional stitches.

Stronger stitches Takes time to develop
No scars Costly
No need to use materials Specific training needed
Short healing time LASER STITCHING PEN: Future TV etc Future of medicine Future Technology NANOROBOTICS: Nanorobotics has been created to be used for early diagnosis, treatment and observing of many different conditions and diseases. They will deliver medicine to a certain part of the body and will also remove bad cells. These future robots will be able to be controlled and monitored by humans and move due to reactions in the body.

It can diagnose diseases quicker
It can deliver medicine more effectively
They are small and work fast

Quite dangerous to merge robots with the human body
May take a long time to develop into something that can be used safely The very latest high tech TVs include the new '4K' Tvs containing four times the retina display of the recent HD TVs. Many of these TVs also have something new which is expected will become quite popular with TVs of the future: the curved screen making it possible for any position in a room to have a perfect view of the telly. Seeing as the recent release of 3D TVs has not been entirely popular, manufacturers are trying new ways of making 3D televisions something that everyone has at home. It is expected that very soon holographic Tvs will be available for purchase and will be available in cinemas. This will demolish the idea of 3D glasses and bring television to a completley new level. BY JENNY AND QASWA. In the next fifty years it is expected that holographic Tvs will go to a new level and be available on handheld devices such as mobile phones, tablets and laptops. This may however, restrict the amount of time children want to do exercise and may not be entirely beneficial. People may even become more antisocial and new technology will destroy more jobs and not be good for the economy of the future. Google glass is the new project set up by google. Gooogle glass is your glasses/sunglasses, phone, SatNav, social networker, camera, webcam and iPod all in one device. Although this all sounds fantastic they are priced at a minimum of £2000 and many people complain they look extremely ugly. If they do get popular however, they could completley destroy the mobile phone. SMART CONTACT LENSES: Glaucoma, (the second-leading cause of blindness) develops when pressure builds inside the eye and damages retinal cells. Contact lenses have been developed to contain conductive wires that continuously observe pressure and fluid flow within the eyes of people who are at risk. The lenses then pass on the information to a small device worn by the patient; the device wirelessly transmits it to a computer. This continuous data flow will help doctors understand the causes of the disease. Future lenses may also automatically dispense drugs if the pressure changes in the eye. VACCINE PATCHES: Doctors have created a vaccine patch which can be used to replace needles. They work just as effectively as normal vaccines. They will boost the immunization against diseases like flu. The patch has hundreds of microscopic needles which dissolve into the skin. The patch contains 100 "microneedles" which are 0.65mm in length. The needles are designed to pierce the outer layers of skin, dissolving on contact. TAILOR-MADE DRUGS: Drugs may become tailor-made for the specific patient due to their genes, environment, diet, age, lifestyle and state of health. All these can influence a person's response to medicines. MUSCLE STIMULATOR:: PROS:
Cures blindness
Easy to use
Automatically dispenses
drugs CONS:
Currently being developed
May damage other cells PROS:
No pain
Easy to use
No need for needles CONS:
May be danger when patch is dissolving
May be expensive PROS:
Diseases treated quicker
due to the specialized tablets
Specifically made for the patient CONS:
Many tablets have to be made for each person so there cannot be mass production
Producing these specialized drugs can become a hassle as they have to contain the specific medicine for the patient In the time it takes for broken bones to heal, the muscles nearby often become weak from the lack of use. But a battery-operated device (which is small enough to be worn underneath casts) that uses electrical stimulation to exercise muscles and keep them strong during recovery can solve the problem. PROS:
Keeps muscles strong
Very small - practical
Already developed CONS:
Requires batteries
May be expensive IN THE FUTURE... It is predicted that in the future diseases such as cancer, diabetes, AIDS and Alzheimer's will be curable. Also finding research for more effective medical treatments will become much easier. Many paralyzed and people who have had strokes will be able to walk and talk properly. The use of iPads and smartphones will occur more as they can provide an insight into how our body operates. By using these different monitoring techniques we can now keep track of several things such as blood sugars, heart rate and how well we slept. All this information can help doctors determine when to give you medicine and other treatments. Medicine in the future can save lives and help those who wouldn't be able to live due to a disease today. Gaming Pros: Better quality, better view Cons: Initially they will be extremely expensive Pros: better TV/cinema experience for everybody
Cons:Cinema tickets/prices of tvs will increase considerably and people may become more antisocial and not exercise as much. Three dimensional gaming is becoming more popular and so is the latest type of gaming: Virtual Reality. This type of gaming takes a real life scene immersing you in the situation.
Pros: better quality, more lifelike, more enjoyable.
Cons: Real life people may not be able to do as many cool things, encourages the 'couch potato' The very latest WiiU features a built in touch screen developed to supplement gaming. This is something we can expect in the future of gaming.
Pros: it can enhance the gaming experience
Cons: It can be difficult to look at two screens at once Cloud gaming first started by Apple is the availability to buy games on the console and have them download onto your gaming device without having to buy the game itself from a store. This idea will be quite prominent in the future of Xbox and PlayStation.
Pros: Its fast, easy and you won't lose any games
Cons: If the idea becomes popular the idea of buying games from stores will be destroyed and along with it the stores and jobs that come with it. Future of Cinema Cinemas are starting to build new cinema rooms with moving seats which move with the movie. In the future the 4d element of cinema will be brought forward with smells, moving seats, holographic screens and things coming out of the ceiling at you i.e.snow Pros: better experience, more exciting
Cons: cinema tickets will rise in price, people become more unsociable
