Technology evolution often exceed the manufacturing abilities however, with each revolutionary invention mankind gets closer to the future narrated by science fiction authors.
Here are 5 inventions that will change the world, once they will be produced at a cheap cost and at a wider scale, inventions that represent huge steps towards a world different than what we currently know.
1. The Human exoskeleton
A direct connection between the nervous system and a mechanic exoskeleton might change the way people interact with the environment in dangerous areas of the planet. Furthermore, it might have an important impact on the industry.
A mechanic exoskeleton might be the solution for people who suffered accidents that got them partially paralyzed.
The models scientists are currently working on allow us to move a 90 kg weight with a minimum effort, however the applicability of this invention will grow once a direct link between the nervous system and the synthetic skeleton is created.
The medical device from Star Trek that diagnoses any medical problem on the spot. The device is not a reality yet but U.S. researchers managed to create scanner the size of a smartphone.
The VScan medical scanner makes transporting specialized equipments in ambulances easier and it might save many lives.
While the first aid kit gets better, medical emergencies in rural areas might be solved easier.
3. The Synthetic Brain
Argonne Labs from the United States is working on a synthetic brain created out of 10,000 neurocortical columns connected to the IBM Blue Gene P super computer.
Even if the features of the human brain are not completely understood right now, the synthetic brain is constantly perfected.
4. Wireless Electricity
A wireless world! MIT Engineers are experimenting with the electric transmission of energy though a magnetic field without having negative effects on the human body.
The system is already functional in many research institutions, and this system might revolutionize the way home appliances are used.
5. Cheap DNA Sequencing
The revolutionary DNA sequencing method developed at the Boston University allows us to quickly get a medical diagnostic.
The next generation of DNA analysis systems will reduce the number of errors and might even identify genes that are active as well as inactive ones.
After the method will be perfect, medicine might change a lot, and this might save more lives.
