9 Techs that Could Transform the World | Future Tech | Scoop.it

We live in an era of accelerating change. Technology is changing and innovating faster than most of us can keep up. And at the same time, it's easy to get so caught up in shiny visions of the future, and not notice the astounding things that are happening in science and technology today. So the next time people ask you where the future went, tell them it's already here.

 

Here are nine underrated or overlooked technologies that could transform the world before you know it. Check these out...

Could Minority Report come true in your lifetime?

Could Minority Report come true in your lifetime? | Future Tech | Scoop.it

What if we could know about a crime before it happens? We could avoid huge amounts of suffering — but even though that goal fuels stories like Minority Report and Person of Interest, it seems to be far away from reality. Until now.

Experts say the field of "predictive policing" has advanced by leaps and bounds. And soon enough, the cops may have the ability to tell the future. Already, pilot projects have been able to predict the rise of a new drug market in Pittsburgh — and that's just the beginning. Here's what the experts told us.

Blade Runner for real: The days of augmenting human bodies with “mods” are coming

Blade Runner for real: The days of augmenting human bodies with “mods” are coming | Future Tech | Scoop.it

Do you want legs that let you jump 10 feet high? Or a body that “impresses chicks”? Or a brain that can be electronically pulled back from extreme depression? Computer experts of today think that the day will be coming when human cyborgs will be possible?

Two computer-savvy medical students, who noted they were not doctors, gave the presentation at the Defcon hacker conference on Saturday. Christian “Quaddi” Dameff and Jeff “Replicant” Tully said that the day is not so distant when we will be able to “mod” our organic bodies with inorganic mechanical and electronic materials that enhance our augment our basic abilities. They refer to the coming era of human augmentation as “transhumanism.” The subject, which they illustrated with the above picture of actress Megan Fox of Transformers fame, is a controversial one that brings up questions of ethics of technologists who can make the worlds of sci-fi movies such as Blade Runner, where “replicant” cyborgs imitate humans, come to life.

Back to the Future: Predicting 2012 in 1987

Back to the Future: Predicting 2012 in 1987 | Future Tech | Scoop.it

For millennia, philosophers from Nostradamus to the estimable Ms. Cleo have tried and failed to divine prophecy from the stars – yet the human impulse to foresee our future continues to endure. And who better to predict the unpredictable than those who spend their lives dreaming of tomorrow: science fiction writers?

That was the idea behind the Writers of the Future’s Time Capsule Predictions, anyway. In 1987, as part of L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future Contest, a dozen highly regarded science fiction authors were asked to envision what our world would be like in a quarter-century: 2012.

How did the predictions fare? Some better than others.

Pinch and Draw with New Motion Control System

Pinch and Draw with New Motion Control System | Future Tech | Scoop.it

A San Francisco startup is working on a plug-and-play device that would let people pinch, draw and mold on their computers with hand and finger gestures. The system, called Leap, will have a precision of one-hundredth of a millimeter – about 100 times finer than any other gesture-recognizing system available now, the company claims – so it can distinguish between individual fingers.
