When posed with this question, a lot of things come to my mind. Let’s just summarize it as flying cars, talking laptops, and probably alien domination. Ok, I’m just exaggerating. The world has changed so far with the emergence of technology in our lives and a lot of people believe that we are still yet to tap into its full potential.
Technology has changed every body one way or the order in this 21st Century. We now use technology to enhance our beauty through laser treatments and other forms of beauty therapy. We now have all our affairs managed through the Internet with Internet banking, online shopping etc. Businesses are not left out, as people no longer need to travel across the world to hold meetings, conferences can be held through video calling platforms like Skype. Marketers also have increased their sales and even get more clients by utilizing social media platforms.
Wives don’t have to go through the task of shopping when they can order their groceries and have them delivered to their doorsteps. We have machines that make life so easy for everyone like cars, airplanes, washing machines, elevators, etc. The list is endless.
It seems like we have it all but no, man will always explore and discover ways to improve on those things which we have and things we are yet to get. This is what makes us believe that we are going to experience a dynamic change in our lives in the next 20 years with technology.
In my opinion, I believe that in the next twenty years mankind will experience a change in technology as we will probably have:
- Travels and vacations in space
- We could have space craft airports for regular visits to Mars and other planets
- Robots doing almost everything for us and thinking like humans
- Vehicles driving by themselves
- Airplanes could have virtual pilots that will navigate the plane
- There would be delivery drones that will do all our deliveries
- Houses could be constructed using 3D printing.
- People will constantly use virtual reality to interact with. Smartphones will be obsolete
- Hyper loops will be used for travel between cities
- The world could become virtual like the movie “Matrix”
- We could have really large skyscrapers that would house small cities
- The world will be using only renewable energy in twenty years
In twenty years, we would experience drastic growth as technology will be so advanced. There are so many possibilities that the future holds for us all. Things will be done the easier way. Imagine having robots at your back and call to handle house chores or to act as personal assistants. Where you don’t have to use your mobile phone to dial a number and all you have to do is talk to pass instructions through artificial intelligence. Where you can control your business operations from the comfort of your home.
The next twenty years promises a lot for the world and we are just as anxious to see what it would bring. It’s even possible time travel could begin or maybe people will develop super powers. Technology has been of great assistance to our world today and has really helped in managing most of our affairs. Technology has saved the lives of many people with the advent of x-ray machines, ultrasounds, EKG Machines etc. Probably the next twenty years will give us a breakthrough in cell and tissue regeneration. There would be a lot of health technology machines that would be available to treat people readily without the need for doctors. We would have machines that can diagnose wounds and heal them (both internally and externally). Just imagine the possibilities that the future holds for us with advanced technology. The human race will become something else. The only fear that comes to mind with all these changes is also how humans will exploit all that power and turn against each order. With a whole lot of advancement in nuclear power, one can’t imagine the damage we can cause amongst ourselves.
Looking at the bright side though, we would really enjoy all that development in the world.
