Dirt repellant fashion clothing with sensors and displays that can change appearance according to environment and wearer. Full robes can also make a wearer less 'trackable' by randomly shifting appearance and shielding electronics hidden in pockets made for that purpose. Good for conspiracy theorists, criminals and anyone wanting privacy in a world of surveillance.

a reply to: Foderalover Nano Tech will be here soon. Nano's will be used for all types of things. But I suspect mostly for medical purpose at first. After nano tech will be, 3D Holograms with A.I will not be far away.

Next you will see the elimination of cable and satellite TV. There are a few companies that are currently experimenting in test markets. The big two are currently spearheaded by AT&T and Google.

Google has launched Google Fiber

AT&T has launched Gigapower.

Now I don't know much about Gigapower, but I have had an eye on Google Fiber for some time now. What it is, in a nutshell, is internet speeds up to 100 times faster than today's average broadband connection. In addition to that, they are offering over 150 channels plus hundreds of thousands of TV shows and movies. The only catch is, it is all ondemand, and it is all done via the internet and these super fast speeds.

So how fast is "100 times" faster than today's connections? Well if you were download 100 songs, it would typically take you over 3 minutes. With Google Fiber's speed, you can download those same 100 songs in less than 3 seconds.

Missed the big game cause you were at work? No problem. Click one button and watch it when you get home. No more remembering to set a DVR. No more missing the beginning of your favorite show cause you got home late. Think Netfliks on steroids.

So how would this destroy cable TV?

The service is being offered at a fraction of the cost. Last I checked it cost about $75.00 per month. My current cable bill with internet and no other extras is $115.00 per month. Plus cable companies are always losing channels due to contract issues. Recently Suddenlink dropped all of Viacom's channels which include Spike TV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, MTV, CMT, etc etc. Roughly 25 channels, which was then replaced with One channel that I can tell (SEC Network), and of course the price never changed even though you lost channels.

This will be your next big thing and your next technology giant. The way you watch TV will change and it will all be at your fingertips- via the internet.

Nano technology has some limitations which need to be overcome first, the most important is the body destroys nano tech and it doesn't last very long inside the human body.

The robotics area is where most new stuff will come from which will have a great impact on society.

Devices like the Epoc headset which reads brainwaves will be commonplace in a few decades when the tech becomes more refined and fashionable to wear.

Take this for example the Amazon "Echo" ...This is not new BUT to me its crazy cool tech..I see the world moving in the hands off direction..

Everything pretty much develops from something else, and at the moment we're seeing considerable development in interactive augmented reality computing.

This is going to be helped by other avenues of progress like the development of graphene components for improved speed and performance.

We're already seeing impressive developments in interactive systems and new forms of virtual reality that have been reduced down to the size of a desktop PC.

The development will be where the money is, and at the moment it seems the money is in interactive and interconnected technology which allows increased communication.

So, after all that, I think the next "big thing" is going to be augmented reality, something along the lines of the 3D interactive headgear Microsoft has been developing, which will eventually allow you to have real time interaction with actual people as if they're in the room.

Given the revelations about a smart TV's listening in on conversations and sending all that data to a "third party" which remains unspecified, I think anything with the outright ability to listen in and basically spy is going to be rejected by most.

I love technology, but it does scare me to see things being developed that would make Orwell openly weep.

YEP! I totally agree But it is cool..

Forget expensive electronic toys for adolescent men. The next breakthrough for humanity is almost upon us. It will be electronic augmentation of human mental skills that will cover the full range of enhancing the human brain/mind. It will be the quantum leap for human evolution for healing of emotional states, to learning, to the attainment of an artificially induced nirvana state, the ultimate mind drug, all powered by a 9v battery in a cheap headset. It will be the "drug" of the masses but the bane of governments as citizens wander off into their own worlds.

Awesome post....Video was really interesting.....

So my number one thing for these new AR glasses will be...

1. Doing acid and seeing if the effect is real?
2. Going on an Ayahuasca retreat and seeing if it nullifies the results....

Interesting as far as the porn industry is concerned...

Could I use it to manipulate the markets?....hmmmmmm

lol

I think we're experiencing the next great leap now with 3-D printing and 4-D printing. The potential for this tech is almost limitless.

4D printing?

Do you mean a 3D printer that takes ages to print?

Hmmm a few modifications.....
Brain implant with artificial unintelligence.
Selectable IQ levels for the privileged.

Advertisements flash before your eyes in an induced hallucinogenic trance at regular intervals.

You go to work, stand in one place and drool in your trance as your factory installed exoskeleton enhanced programmable arm zips away at some mundane task.

Welcome to the new world of cybernetic technology, now satisfy your artificial desires to consume as a new age super consumer should in your not so free time.


That's an awfully unintelligent idea. What exact purpose would a human-being have at that factory except be in the way and cost money? The technology is obviously there to make that person redundant.


Do you expect it to turn out any other way?
The role as consumer is enhanced. The mundane job is required to be a consumer. Instead of being replaced by robots, humans reenter the workforce as robots. Consumerism hits the next level.

Well, it would make a decent sci fi doom porn flic, maybe end it with a meteor smashing to earth saving humanity by making them start over at the cave man stage.

I think you're on the right track. Watching movies or old TV episodes online is already common place. Being able to watch what you want when you want is a big advantage over traditional TV.

Some websites which offers a similar service:
1) Netflix
2) Crackle
3) Epix
4) Google play
5) CinemaNow
6) Vudu
7) Blockbuster On Demand
8) Amazon Prime/Amazon Instant Video
9) Hulu Plus
10) Youtube (not really a good example)
11) iTunes

i would like to see a kind of instant down load into the brain of the language of any country that we want to visit .
or even a skill's down load , car mechanic , computer programming etc .

The jet pack thing...

Have fun finding out why it didn't happen:
www.goodreads.com - The Great American Jet Pack: The Quest for the Ultimate Individual Lift Device...

So think about it.... 50 years ago we DID have jetpacks, but it wasn't practical. So if you were someone in 1960, would you be CERTAIN that in another 50 years of R&D we'll have jetpacks like in the jetsons?

It makes me much more cautious about being confident. Then again, we figured out it wasn't practical BECAUSE some people were confident. They TRIED to make practical jetpacks. I think I recall someone famous saying "Research is what I do when I don't know what I'm doing."

I want to post this again (just watch):


All respects to you Arthur, but there's an obvious error here. You stated "100,000 million other suns of our universe." Actually, your statement is more accurate if you say "100,000 quintillion other suns of our observable universe." Big difference between the two smart***! If he was somehow meaning to say "300,000 million other suns in our galaxy..." then ok.

One has to be loose when reviewing predictions from the past. At least Arthur gave a big number. A lot of his predictions in the video are similar. Take the prediction about suspended animation. There's already a study going on right now using hours of suspended animation to repair horrific injuries brought to the emergency room. His prediction was too big. Whether it's too big or too small, at least it's in the ball park.

www.newscientist.com - Gunshot victims to be suspended between life and death...

His prediction about monkeys wasn't too wildly off:

The next great electronic device not derived out of inventions already in use will be some sort of free-standing power generator that will wirelessly redirect energy into your home electronics via the airwaves. It will look like a fat tiki torch and stand about shoulder height.
