Moore’s law run out

The Moore's Law describes a long-term trend in the history of computing hardware, in which the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit has doubled approximately every two years. When the ...

 
 
Highways become covered with nano-solarpanels

Highways become covered with nano-solarpanels

Due to breakthrough in solarpanel and nano carbon tube technologies, 20% of all highways become covered with nano-solarpanels which are able to load electric car batteries during the drive by 2030. This solves many transportaio...

 
 
Human Enhancements

Human Enhancements

Increasing research on enhancing human performance: e.g. modification of biochemical processes in the body, implants for monitoring body status and releasing drugs as well as nanotech-enhanced tissue, bones and brain.

 
 

"Immortality" through mind transfer to computing substrate

Advances in neuroscience and computer technology may enable the emulation of whole individual human brains on a computer (or future equivalent). Curent research like the FET-Flagshio "Human Brain" project indicate a potential d...

Catastrophe related to technology

Catastrophe related to technology

e.g. a nuclear power plant meltdown. Something could happen, because people and societies always think they can control technology. After such a catastrophe there will be some kind of rethink about basic technology and progress...

 
 
We will be able to build processors using bacteria

We will be able to build processors using bacteria

We will be able to make ‘smart’ yoghurt, where every bacterium in the yoghurt will have electronic devices which it assembles in its own cells linked together to create skilled intelligence. So a pot of ‘smart’ yoghurt ...
