Transcript of The Future
Biotechnology and medicine in the future
Transport of the future
The first flying cars are set to go on sale to the public as early as 2015.
Robot doctors will soon be in most hospitals assisting surgeons.
Robots are going to be the new revolutionary must have in a few decades. They can do more than the average human being in many different ways.
Scientist have been developing computer programs for robots who could act as soldiers or security officers in high security areas. They believe that we could send them to dangerous places which a human could not go and the robots don’t need nutrients to live, don’t get tired or bored like humans do.
They could also be used in battle and war could be fought by machines so we do not lose millions. Robots can hit the right targets and obey the laws of war. They can refuel themselves on long journeys by finding organic materials. They have no emotions as machines and will therefore kill the enemy, showing no mercy, they won't be afraid, or act irresponsibly.
Many companies are discovering the positive uses for robots and so are building them.
Control a robot with your mind
Scientists have been discovering the power of your mind. They have invented a Brain-Machine Interface helmet which enables the wearer to communicate telepathically with humanoids. It reads your thoughts by measuring changes in electrical current and blood flow in the brain. Electrodes inside the skullcap detect your intention and transmit the mental data to Honda's Asimo robot, which makes the movement for you.
If you have a smart home you would want a smart servant. Domestic robots have been programmed to do chores such as cleaning and organizing. Some of this technology is happening now. Japanese engineers have spent years developing it making it more realistic. It can recognize human speech and respond to it or do specific tasks around the house.
Robots can do many things that a human would have to spend days sometimes years doing before being a professional at it . However robots have the ability to bound at great speeds, lift huge weights and leap tall fences and most of us do not.
Exoskeletons allow the wearer to take on the strength of machine. They enable soldiers to run faster, carry heavier weapons and leap over obstacles on the battlefield. At the same time, the exoskeleton would shield the wearer from the effects of bullets and bombs. They are the revolutionary suits which will decrease the numbers dead on the battlefield.
The future of technology is very exciting as we will see objects of the future emerge into our everyday lives. There will be exoskeletons used on the battlefield, Brain-Machine Interface helmets for communication and control. New ways to shop for your groceries, self driving cars and the new face of transport. Biotechnology and medicine will be revolutionized as Nano technology and robot doctors will be used more in surgery.
The face of shopping will also be changed. Instead of going through the trouble of paying with a debit card shoppers will be able to pay for items using biometric payment fingerprint. By just placing your finger on a sensor it would link the fingerprint to their credit or debit card to record their purchase. This would save a lot of time at the checkouts if customers only needed to use their fingerprint to pay.
Smart carts include interactive technology which are wireless-enabled shopping carts with mini-computers which allow customers to keep a running tab by scanning products as they shop, see what's on sale in the aisle they're in, search for products, pay, and leave without waiting in line. Grocers can save on labor costs and advertisers can connect with highly specific target audiences.
Future Home Security Using Facial Recognition Software
Future Home Theatre
Nanotechnology is tiny, about the size of one hundred thousandth of the width of a hair! Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. It is really useful in medicine as it is small and so can be programmed to fight diseases in cells in our body such as cancer without harming healthy tissue. The technique works by inserting microscopic synthetic rods called carbon nanotubules into cancer cells. When the rods are exposed to near-infra red light from a laser they heat up, killing the cell, while cells without rods are left unscathed. Scientists have created a new nanoparticle that is able to detect cancer cells and destroy them.
Scientists are also investigating robot doctors which could be programmed to do the job of a human doctor. Surgical robots today are very advanced tools. With no decision-making functions of their own, they merely channel the surgeon's actions using Brain-Machine Interface helmets. To combine humans and robots in a operation is an experimental technique called " perceptual docking", where the eye movements of the surgeon are tracked in order to teach the robot the cognitive processes and decision-making paths involved in surgery. A robot not only has to spot a vein, but also know to avoid it, and also to detect if it starts bleeding. They could be useful for hard operations as sometimes surgeons are not quick enough to save a patient whereas a robot could carry it out easily.
Modern Earth Sheltered Home
Future Solar Home on Water
This smart home is half buried underground: earth sheltered which is equipped with advanced energy conservation and generation features such as solar panels, solar windows and smart home technology which means that it the owner does not have to pay as much money for heating. Home wind turbines, home use of geothermal energy wold be used more.
This house also generates its own power to run the whole building. Researchers have already discovered thin film solar technology and applied this to windows so that every window in the home can be a power generator and they are still transparent so you can see out of them. They also use the water to generate heat.
The first flying cars are here! They are part sedan, part private jet with two seats, two passenger airbags, and a full-vehicle parachutefour wheels and wings that fold up so it can be driven like a car on the road. However it is not cheap as the transition will cost £190,000 ($300,000)
Unmanned aircraft could be making its way to the battlefield and the airport in a few years. These planes would most likely be used to police the skies, patrol borders and transport cargo. Also they would drop bombs and spy on terrorist camps
The concept airbus
This future plane is strong and lightweight so will reduce the fuel costs of flying. It has seating with integrated sensors that would be able to monitor health and would use methane as an energy source. The engine modification is made from special shape-shifting materials to change airflow through the engine and reduce noise pollution. Bags would be delivered to passengers seats therefore there would be no blocked aisles so faster boarding. There would also be a gaming zone, where passengers could play virtual sports.
Smart homes will design, install and support all of your intelligent home systems; from lighting control, multi-room music, home cinema, security systems including CCTV and gate entry and IT through to the complete electrical design and installation. Smart homes will take ownership and full responsibility of literally any cable being installed in your premises providing you, quite simply, with one point of contact rather than lots.
The inside of the aircraft would be very light

The seats would mould to the shape of passengers

Future home entertainment systems will be out of this world. By combining future augmented reality, virtual reality and mediated reality movies and television will be more interactive than ever before. Imagine in your living room playing a future version of Wii golf or tennis with your virtual friends while watching breaking news or the latest 3-D movie.
Cameras outside the home will integrate with systems inside using facial recognition software to determine friend from foe. This system will be automated so that police can be dispatched when a foe is detected outside your future home.
