There are even plans for self-driving car sand even self-driving Ubers that make the future of transportation very exciting. What about all the others that are out there? What will technology be like as we get close rand closer to 2050?
“Wait a minute, drones are already here!”and yes, they are. But more times than not the drones you are seeing are small, piloted by people who are just trying to have some fun, or, are thrones that are used by the military right now for strikes and surveillance. All very fun, but in the future, drones could be an integral part of our daily lives. Anything from pizza to Amazon packages, anymore. And honestly…that’s very probable. Drones right now can be incredibly sophisticated,and some TV shows actually use them for sweeping and aerial shots as they film, it’s very cool. But to do deliveries, that’d have to be Little more programmed, as human error no doubt would be a very big buzzkill. Not that it’s impossible right now, it’s more of a question of numbers, logistics, costs, and making sure that the deliveries themselves are done in a methodical and careful manner.
After all, it’s bad enough when delivery people don’t care enough about our packages that they just throw them onto the porch and potentially break stuff, the last thing we need is that to happen with drones. But by 2050? We might not only have drones delivering out packages, we might be looking up at the sky and seeing drones flying all over with incredible speeds and accuracy, and they potentially could all be run by AI! The potential is there, and by that point various upgrades to drones and their programming will no doubt make them all the more efficient,durable, and quick. Imagine a drone taking a vital piece of medical material to a hospital to ensure it doesn’t get stuck in traffic? Or helping watch over an important convoy to let people know on the ground if there is trouble? There’s many ways that drones could affect our world, the only question is, will we let them by 2050? Let’s keep going with transportation,
shall we? Especially when it comes to passenger and freight trains. They can take a LONG time to get to their destinations and at times it’s more logical to take other modes of transportation. You know of the magnetic trains of Japan no doubt, but others like the Virgin Hyper loop are trying to push things even farther. Science-fiction? Hardly, in fact, the first vehicle of hypertrophy has already been tested and proven, and some larger tests are being scheduled for the next few years. How much faster? The hyper loop aims to send people shooting across the tubes that they make at a rate of about 600 miles per hour they’re planning to do this with not just people, but cargo, imagine being able to ship something in the morning on the West Coast to the East Coast and KNOW it will get there before the day ends.
That is quite impressive. Plus, the tubes would be built undergrounds to not disturb wildlife, AND, they will go and make it in a way where there are No carbon emissions. So they’re fast, they’re reliable, they won’t harm the planet…seems like a win all around.And by 2050, this could be one of the main modes of transportation around the world! Before we show off even more technologies we could have by 2050, we’ve had some fun ones, but now let’s go deeper down the rabbit hole and talk about the ones we all fear…A.I. And believe it or not, we’re closer to that you might think” Maybe, maybe not, it just depends on how fare go with AI and how much we’re able to control it, or if we can’t fully control it once they reach certain levels of intelligence. Of course, for all of our worries about AI,there is a chance that it could all be fine. We could customize how they sound, how they look, and basically have a BFF that’ll help us out in life in various ways.
let’s show off another technology that MANY people are hoping for…space travel!!!! Yeah, when you think about the decade we’rein right now, the 2020’s, the BIGGEST goal of the world BY FAR is to get to Mars, and possibly beyond. But it’s not just about landing there, though that would and will be a crowning achievement for humanity in the decade and in recent times. More importantly than just landing there thoughts the ability to start setting up the first human colony on another planet. We’ve been to the moon many times, but we haven’t tried to live there for various reasons. Mars seems to be the place where many feel we can go in order to live among st the stars. “We’re going to have to do that because only so much can be brought to space.” Of course, there are numerous things that need to be worked out before such a thing could happen, but we have “Top Men” on this,including Elton Musk and the Space X program, Jeff Bozos via his Blue Origin company anymore. Each of them, and NASA among others, are working on not just getting us back into space, but getting us there via cheaper, smaller, and reusable spacecraft, something that honestly has been a setback for the space program over the last 20 years. But, if we are able to do it, if we are able to get to Mars, get there faster, and be able to colonize it, then by 2050 who knows where we will be?
We could have multiple colonies on Mars, maybe some on the moon, and maybe even colonies on moons like Titan and Europa, which something could be even better places to colonize than Mars. It’s possible, but obviously Mars is the place that we are aiming for right now. With each step into space, humanity grows larger in the universe, and who knows just how many of us will be out there by 2050. Alright, now let’s dive into something Really sci-fi…prosthetic. Yeah, I know that RIGHT NOW prosthetic are very limited, and at times…a bit pointless. But IF we were able to fully utilize computer technology to its fullest and make prosthetic that are fully compatible with the human brain and body, then the sky is the limit. And yeah, it may seem like we’re far away from that, but we are getting closer to that point . That’s pretty cool! Imagine if a police officer loses an arm in the line of duty. Usually, that would mean the end of his career,but with an advanced prosthetic? He could literally be better than ever fit were advanced enough. The biggest problem with these fake limb sis that most of them are plastic, meant to convey that the arm or leg is still there,and thus still usable. We haven’t fully bridged that gap yet. But when we do? Dang…life is going to get a lot more interesting. And don’t forget, these prosthetic could be used in many ways other than helping people with lost limbs. They could be put onto other objects, or potentially even be worn as exoskeletons when needed. Think of it like Jax from Mortal Combat.
Some people could even ask for implants tobe put into their arms or legs to give them an extra boost, like TJ Combo from KillerInstinct. What? I like video games, and they have plenty of cybernetic people. The point is, by 2050, if these things are made, a lot of people won’t feel ‘broken’ or ‘weak’ anymore because they’ve lost limbs or the abilities of their arms or legs. They’ll be whole again, and be able to nothings just like they were before, if not better. And that’s a future we should definitely berrying to live for. Now let’s go to something a bit more…unique. Look at yourself right now, specifically,look at the clothes you are wearing right now. What are they made of? What do they feel like? What do they look like? Of all of these answers, I bet none of the mare, “they look like they can give me superpowers”. Because they can’t. Not yet anyway… Think about it like this, what if the clothes you were wearing right now felt the same, looked the same, but could do more? That would be pretty impressive, and important,especially in this age of gun violence we live in. Or, what if the uniforms of firefighters made them completely heat-resistant and burn proof? Further ensuring that they are able to do their jobs without much risk to their lives. The technologies that we can put into clothe sis out there, and some people are working on it right now both in terms of multiple functions, but also, cosmetic appeal
Imagine if by 2050 we have the ability tocraft whatever kinds of clothes we want, and even select what kind of “abilities’ they have? Wouldn’t that be cool? If done right, this could be the newest wave of fashion and style in the future. See? The future is hip! I’m sure that last one left you drooling,so let’s temper your expectations and talk about…school. Yes it sucks, and learning can be a chore. But in the future, it may be a LOT more interactive. Over the last decade or so computers in school shave been a “must-have” for various courses. But if the advent of virtual reality simulations come through as many expect them to, it could lead to all sorts of innovations in the classrooms that could help kids what’s going on You can explain that sort of thing more easily if they can see it happening, than if you are looking at a textbook.” Oh yeah, history and geography classes would be much more fun, that’s for sure. Or imagine an ‘audio book’, but instead of just an audio, you can see the characters coming to life before your eyes and you watch them interact with others. Heck, school plays could have projected environments to make things seem more real! And of course, you could have virtual tutors to help you with problems that the teachers aren’t able to help with
Education is definitely something that can benefit from advanced technologies, and by 2050, our school systems could be so revolutionized that you’d have to try REALLY hard to fail class. Though I’m sure some of you would still try. Finally, let’s talk about something that I’m sure you’ll be horrified to hear. In the future…you likely won’t need a phone. I know, you’re stunned, but think about it,right now, smartphones are becoming more and more advanced every single year. New features, new programs, etc. But by 2050, your phone won’t likely need to exist because you’ll have access to it and more via something else. What exactly? That depends on the technology, but for this example, let’s imagine a wrist gauntlet. Instead of typing up a number, you simple have to say, “Call Mom”.
But obviously the gauntlet could do more than that, it’ll likely have a holographic screen that you can use to look up information on MUCH bigger keyboard. And depending on what sci-fi future you believe we’ll have, it’ll have things that can scan objects, detect dangers, warn you about upcoming problems, and may even have an AI companion. So yeah, your phones are important right now,but in the future? More than likely not. Thanks for watching everyone! What do you think of this look at the future and what it might entail? Can you guess which of these things we’ll actually have in 2050? What thing do you personally want to have now and not later? Let me know in the comments below, be surety subscribe, and I’ll see you next time on the channel! Thanks for watching everyone! What do you think of these technologies that we could have by 2050? Which of them do you think the world needs sooner rather than later? And which do you personally want to have in your lives before 2050 comes around?
