”The Past is history, future is a mystery, but today is a gift”. Today, we will be tackling the mystery part of the previous quote. If you’re interested in knowing what will come to pass over the next fifty years, you’ve come to the right place.
Three technological innovations you can expect in your lifetime
If you’re fascinated by today’s technology, you will be astonished by what’s coming. The life as we know it will soon change drastically, and if we’re to make full use of it, we should know what’s coming before it actually does. So, here are three things you can anticipate to appear in the near future.
1. Self-cleaning clothes
If you hate washing your clothes, you can joyfully anticipate the date when this will become a worldwide trend. Engineers in China have already developed fabric for clothes that will eliminate stains and further development of bacteria, and all you have to do is step into the sun. In South Korea, they’ve eliminated a need to use detergent, but instead you get to dunk your clothes into a robot-fish tank that clean it for you.
2. Fat-burning pill
It’s possible that in the next ten or twenty years we will be able to swallow a pill that will stop us from getting fat, based on what we eat. Of course, it will not cure our laziness, but at least we will be lazy and skinny. This of course will be most useful when it comes to people who suffer from obesity and other medical conditions that prevent them from burning fat on their own. This method was already successfully tested on rats, and now it’s just a matter of applying it to humans.
3. App doctors
This concept already exists, but it’s not advanced enough to be as reliable as we want it to be. App doctor is basically an app that determines what is wrong with you and prescribes medicine. It will measure your heart rate, respiration, perform saliva and blood tests too. So if you’re tired of visiting the doctors and waiting in line, having to perform routine checks just so you stay healthy, you’ve got this little app to look forward to.
