Tomorrow’s world: A visual guide to the next 150 years | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

As we begin a new year, BBC Future has compiled 40 intriguing predictions made by scientists, politicians, journalists, bloggers and other assorted pundits in recent years about the shape of the world from 2013 to 2150.

How many of these will come true,,,ha...ha I remember some of the great predictions in the past that never made it, whilst the unpredicted did. Anyone remember the "atomic" egg that would fit in a box to power all your household power needs? Anyone remember all the free time we were going to have to manage because robots and AI would be doing all the work?

Forget Google Glasses: Our ‘Smart Phones’ Will Soon Be Contact Lenses | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

You wake up in the morning, rub your sleepy eyes. As you’re getting ready to face the day you put in your contact lens, which will make the Internet and all your files, playlists, GPS, favorite apps, and addicting games literally available with the blink of an eye. Scientists are already at the animal testing phase of the technology that will make this possible.
