If I'm going to predict the future, i would divide it up into 3 eras




near future is 30 yrs from now, mid is I would say 100 and far would be anywhere from 200 to 1000 yrs from now

Can someone help me think of 10 dope and creative technologies that for each era?

a reply to: humanoidlord The OP wants ideas about possibke future tech. Also I think the OP should have presented some ideas of their own and created more depth to the OP. My guess for the near future is exo-skeloten.

Near future, virtual reality: dining, vacations, lifestyle, health, sex, afterlife, personal ambitions.

Mid future, extended life, multi dimensions, space travel, Deity.

Far future.......... hard to say, trips into the past ?

I think that in the developed world, there will be a conflict between the futurists (or technologists, if that is a better word) and naturalists (for lack of a better word).

Consider where we are headed with personal automobiles. There are already whispers (albeit some loud whispers) about some cities coming up with plans to mandate that ONLY self-driving cars to operate. This will spread nationwide and there will be a resistance there because not everyone wants to give up the privilege of taking a therapeutic afternoon drive.

As more automation takes place, it is only a matter a time before there is a push to go cashless. For various reasons there will be those who resist that as well.

We will all be asked (or forced) to give up what we presently consider freedoms for a "better" (or alleged "safer") life.

Some will welcome it as the cool new thing. Others will see it as the death of a way of life they cherish.

Thats all I have to say about tha-at.

The problem with mid and far future... is the past. History teaches us that periodic rises of empires and their cataclysmic failures disrupts the current system and infrastructure.

But then technology is improved on every time. Consider the last hundred years or so. We've had several techno revolutions that all resulted in open warfare, which bred more technology which resulted in more warfare... each time the newest technology was employed to win the war, no weapons system was left untried, including the use of atomic weapons at the end of WWII.

Now fast forward to the now. The current state of technology is so destructive, the resulting devastation from wide spread use of nuclear weapons, so devastating...

"The privilege of opening the first trial in history for crimes against the peace of the world imposes a grave responsibility. The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant and so devastating, that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored because it cannot survive their being repeated."

--Opening comments before Nuremburg Trial, 1945.

No one really knows what we will have, we don't even know what we have now especially technology sat on by government's under the pretence of national security etc. or by Corporations such as the petroleum and automotive conglomerates.

There is only one way these hidden ground breaking technology's will ever come to light and that is when Greed outweighs there current fear of letting us have access to them, when they can sell what they are hiding from us to us and in some cases these technology's are actually very old now - just we have not seen them.

Other than that Economics and Consumerism has driven much of our technological development's, war has also driven these development's perhaps to a far greater extent even than post WW2 consumerism has.

So to make such an impossible guess would require knowing the state of our global culture over those time frame's.

If some elite have there way then we will actually regress, they will sit on super technology's they already have and use them to there own agenda but the rest of us in a population controlled world will likely be back to using cattle for hand ploughing fields and have our education filled with control propaganda.

Most likely technology already in use but then refined to a level far above would be mind control technology's developed to control the population, banish unrest and allow the elite to continue to control either from the shadow's through there puppet politicians or more direct by implementing there imperialistic one world government.

That is assuming we even make it to these stages without our civilization collapsing and the elite retreating to there DUMB's with there according to some account's fully fitted out alternative world to live in - until they come back up to seize control once the storm has passed.

Best guess, I have no idea but we may actually have a lunar base (So long as ET does not chase us off) on the moon in the short to intermediate term, in fact we may already have one just not one that the public know about according to some conspiracy's.

near future: mars,nuclear rockets,bigger particle collisors,more horrible weapons,boring stuff and fads
mid future: imortality,actually good A.I,jupiter and saturn (maybe venus), first interrestelar probes,discovery of alien life and weapons of course

I've been amused in the past about the British Telecom Technology Timeline. You can read a little about its past here:

http:// /BT_Technology_Timeline

But if you wanted to read the 2005 report (the latest) you can find it here:

https:// / /Innovation/News/timeline/TechnologyTimeline.pdf

For some reason its not letting me insert hyperlinks. Remove whitespaces and ... from the urls.

Just looking over it, you can see the changes in society and technology. i'd say those are somewhat accurate although priorities may juggle things around and discoveries not made on time. But I'd say these are likely good milestones for the future.

Self driving vehicles become ubiquitous
Cash is eliminated
True AI is officially harnessed by government
Interplanetary travel becomes normalized
Asteroid mining

Flying cars (lol)
Interstellar travel
Borders are eliminated
AI finally kills us all

Nothing, because humanity is dead...

The kardashev scale is a bad bad joke...

Don't ever use it seriously other than Democratic underground or socialism today because it's a laughably stupid farce

Can I re-write the OP for him???
Dear ATS I am trying to write a futuristic book to make me loads of money and I've got no ideas of my own to start with, could you please help me by giving me ideas, Thanks.

Buddy the way we are going, our race will be lucky to have a future.

30 years from now Tokamak Fusion reactors will be mainstream regarding energy production and AI will probably be a lot smarter than the average Joe and we will begin to industrialise and colonise low Earth orbit.

100 years from now we might have bases on the Moon or Mars.

200 years from now and we should be well on our way to colonizing the rest of the viable Moons, planetoids, and asteroids of our system.

1000 years distant and we may even have perfected Albercurrie drive or have colonised other stars systems via some other means of travel or Von Neumann machine like technologies.

That's if we make it to a type one civilisation before destroying ourselves which is a distinct possibility.
