Robotic engineers are designing the next generation of robots to look, feel and act more human, to make it  easier for us to warm up to a cold machine.

Realistic looking hair and skin with embedded sensors will allow robots to react naturally in their environment. For example, a robot that senses your touch on the shoulder and turns to greet you.

Campbell Ross-Taylor's insight:

The future is robots, you won't have a human serving you at the shops as it'll be a robot, it will save labor and make things run more efficiently.

3-D printing and the future of stuff

Have you ever searched for a lamp but just couldn’t find the right one, or had to wait months for a spare part for a household device that is no longer produced? These frustrations could soon be a thing of the past. High performance 3-D printing or additive manufacturing technologies, first developed in laboratories some 30 years ago, are now available for consumers. One of the most exciting innovations to emerge in recent times, 3-D printing offers the realistic possibility that anyone, anywhere in the world can produce any object they need on demand. 

Campbell Ross-Taylor's insight:

As stated you won't have to worry about something being broken or needing repair and having "to go down to the shop tomorrow", you will be able to just print it off their and then to fix whatever it is

10 technologies that will change the world in the next 10 years

Evans talks about his home as an example of the speed of network improvements. Network performance has increased by 170,000 times since 1990, when he had just one telnet connection.

Today, Evans has 38 always-on connections and more than 50Mbps of bandwidth, enough for telepresence, streaming movies and online games at the same time. Over the next 10 years, Evans expects the speed to his home to increase by 3 million times.

Campbell Ross-Taylor's insight:

The future of the internet will make everything more accessible. Instead of driving down, searching for and renting a DVD you'll be able to download it in seconds or communicate with lots of people from all around the world or share extravagantly large amounts of data or all of this at once seamlessly without waiting. Everything will be quicker and better.

Future Medical Technology | Future For All

Future Medical Technology | Future For All | Five Most Important Technologies in the Next 5 to 10 Years | Scoop.it
Future medical technology breakthroughs will build from the incredible progress made in nanotechnology, biotechnology, computers, the information learned from deciphering the human genome and other scientific and technical areas.

Here are some of the futuristic medical devices and technologies that exist, are in development or are predicted.

Brain-computer interface

Care giving robots

Computer aided diagnosis

Drug delivery devices

Regenerative medicine, replacement organs

Organ replacement / growing organs

Robotic surgery

Bioengineered devices

Virtual medicine

Campbell Ross-Taylor's insight:

This technology will save so many lives, it will remove human error in surgery, possibilities of living much longer in good health thanks to transplants etc. You won't have to worry about a failed liver or heart, just get a new one without having to wait for someone to give up theirs.

10 technologies that will change the world in the next 10 years

Virtual humans, both physical (robots) and online avatars will be added to the workforce. "Already, animated characters can recognize speech, convert text to speech, and have knowledge of previous encounters," says Evans.

By 2020, robots will be physically superior to humans. IBM's Blue Brain project, for instance, is a 10-year mission to create a human brain using hardware and software. "They believe that within a decade they'll start to see consciousness emerge with this brain," Evans says.

Campbell Ross-Taylor's insight:

In the future the robots will be superior, you'll have robots doing the impossible heavy lifting or having the robots fighting the wars. Although is that okay? Not all the future technology is going to be used for good. There will always be people with bad intentions that can make those intentions a reality with the right technology.

10 technologies that will change the world in the next 10 years

10 technologies that will change the world in the next 10 years | Five Most Important Technologies in the Next 5 to 10 Years | Scoop.it
3D printers, sensor networks, virtual humans and other technologies under development now will drastically change our world in the decade to come, according to Cisco chief futurist Dave Evans

 

Already, things ranging from toys to cars to living structures are being printed and because the process is done by adding layers of materials on top of one another, they are printed fully assembled and decorated, too. The bicycle pictured with this story is an actual working bicycle created by a 3D printer.

Campbell Ross-Taylor's insight:

In the future you won't have to buy your kid a bike for Christmas, you can let him design it himself and make it. 3D printers will help save on a lot of things you'd have to buy as you can just make it. However the downside being 3D printers would be expensive..
