I opened this thread with the original intent of showing my absolute disgust for another "prediction" thread, BUT I then realized that perhaps the
OP is not going in that all too common ATS "predictions" direction here with this thread.
After fully reading the OP's thread, I am under the impression that the OP is asking for a stimulating discussion on technology based predictions,
and NOT the NUTTY usual "predictions" that are EVERYWHERE on these forums here.
Is my assumption correct OP? If so, PLEASE, PLEASE change your title of this thread, otherwise you will be getting HARSH replies here.
Anyways, if this thread on "predictions" is what I assume that you are asking for, here is my contribution:
With the newest type of electric motor technology called the "brushless" motors, I cannot imagine that this will not replace the noisy, greasy,
oily, unreliable, environmental-damaging combustion engines in the next decade or two.
But of course we have the great enemy of sensible and environmentally safe technologies who exist in the OIL industry using DEEP pockets and MOUNTAINS
of cash to influence the continued reliance of earth-and-health-destroying energy methods.
Those new brushless motors are incredibly powerful, maintenance free, and have no parts in it to wear out other than a shaft with bearings on it!!
