Future inventions will both make life easier and save energy. Let's
start first with the future inventions that will make life easier.
One of the future inventions that is progressing is the use of
robotic surgery. Having robots do routine surgery such as remove
moles plus mold and implant caps on teeth will be nothing. One
of the future inventions that will be considered disruptive technology
is robots doing major surgery.
Robots in the surgical rooms will be equipped with compact X-rays,
MRI machines, lasers, scalpels and other equipment. They will be
able to draw blood, collect urine, and analyze the data against
huge medical databases. They will make diagnoses and conduct treatment
much more quickly than is humanly possible.
In the not so distant future there will be a comparison website
for pharmaceutical prices that is real, robust, fair and democratic.
With this future invention you'll be able to compare prescribed
drug prices locally instead of driving to each individual pharmacy
and doing comparison shopping this inefficient and ineffective way.
The "addiction pill" will be developed as one of the
most important of the future inventions of our time. People who
suffer from a wide variety of addictions from substance abuse to
Internet addictions to relationship addictions will be treated with
pills that either excite or inhibit parts of the brain responsible
for both feelings and behavior.
Another of the future inventions that will be high on the coolness
factor is 3D printers. Already, scientists are using inkjet printers
to lay down solar cells for energy and microscopic cells for medical
research. This is happening now. In the not too distant future,
however, the 3D printer invention will enable viewers to change
different angles of the paper and see other sides to objects. Magazines
may be the first to employ this followed by home printers.
GPS shoes, clothing, glasses, TV remote, cell phones (even when
turned off) will all be future inventions that will make life easier
and they will all be networked. If you don't know where your child
is you can look up their GPS cloths on laptop, desktop or cell phone.
If you don't know where your glasses are or where the TV remote
is you can do the same.
And if you can no longer see your future gadgets then you may
receive an artificial eye or two implanted by robotic surgery.
No longer will you need to wait for a donor to expire, but artificial
robotic eyes will be available at your own pharmacy (by prescription
of course). Think that this is too science fiction for you? Right
now scanners can turn pictures into braille. The human mind can
control personal computers and robotic eyes are just an inch away
from being a reality.
A future invention whose time has come is the development of a
world currency. Sure, the Euro is a good start, but either expanding
this or developing a new currency that can be used anywhere will
help consumers travel and buy anywhere they like with ease.
On other pages on this site I've already talked about the future
invention of facial recognition home security software. Cameras
outside the house and inside the house can record, detect and recognize
friend from foe.
It will be able to run people's faces against
a database of criminals as well as give a history of that
person and even pull up their different social media accounts,
work history and even more personal history. If you think
this is farfetched check out Google Goggles and you'll a glimpse
of this technology in action.
is one of those future inventions that is almost here. In fact,
in a way it is here as several so-called tourists have made it to
the International Space Station. What will happen though in the
next couple of years is that tours to low earth orbit (LEO) will
be conducted routinely and economically like rides in Disneyland
or upon a cruise ship.
One of the future inventions that scientists are working on now
that could be revolutionary is wireless electric car recharging
on roads. Right now the technology is there for buses to run automated
routes wirelessly with transmitters in the road every several feet.
Also, there have been prototypes built embedding solar panels in
the highways and byways to create energy.
But this energy and automated navigation could also be applied
to electric cars as well. Wireless recharging for home devices is
already happening. And not too far ahead this will be on the roadways
for electric cars as well. This will not only make life easier but
will also be done in a green and energy saving manner.
Now, to continue on with this thread about future inventions that
will save energy, let's talk about some competing technology of
hydrogen cars. Hydrogen car zero emission prototypes are here right
now. And most of them are either hybrid or plug-in hybrids as well.
The advantage of a plug-in hybrid hydrogen fuel cell car is range
and refueling time. This technology could compete with wireless
recharging of electric cars.
Inventions for the near future will include smart energy savers
for home electronics. Right now, peripheral devices plugged into
home electric sockets continue to suck down energy even when not
in use. In fact, Bill Nye the Science Guy has said on CNN that 8-percent
of all household electric usage is due to this kind of peripheral
In the future some young inventor will come up with a way to save
this power, by shutting down these peripherals and the power to
them either through smart home technology or a combination that
includes technology inside the peripheral itself.
There has been much talk about an Internet neural network, which
of course will be one of the wildest future inventions in regard
to communications. And part of this will be the worldwide smart
neural network power grid, based upon green energy, which will allocate
resources where they are need to each continent.
Some of this will be done through cables, fiber optics and power
lines but advancing past that will be the use of lasers, lasers
in satellites, ultrasonic transmissions and wireless electricity.
People have been seeking and working on
free energy sources for hundreds of years. In one of the most
astounding groundbreaking and disruptive technologies we will
Free energy from electromagnetic motors will free us from our dependence
upon foreign oil and the national power companies.
Before we finally get to this free energy source, however, we will
have to go down the path of solar, wind, geothermal, smart grids,
electrified highways and other sources of almost free energy. The
final missing piece will be the future inventions that will lead
to free energy through electromagnetic fields including large and
Of course, these future inventions are only predictions. Even Nostradamus
gets it wrong on occasion. But, if you think these are
wild, wacky and never will happen, then you need to check
on what engineers and scientists are working on right
now. In fact, they are working on all of these future
inventions right now. In a few years time, will see how
the progress goes.
