Devices and things from the future through the eyes of a science fiction writer
Have you ever thought about how fiction writers manage to predict device and the things that will be invented in the distant future?Perhaps that’s fantastic stories and books about the gadgets of the future and are the main engine of progress, which encourages developers and researchers in the right direction? 😉 So, read on, what devices of the future described in his books known science fiction writer Isaac Asimov.
The average life expectancy in the developed world reaches 85. Procreation will be brought under control
Homes will be mostly underground (like most of the space of the city). This will reduce their heating in winter and cooling in summer. The surface of the city will be given over to vegetable gardens, grazing and Parks

Tech will not have a power cord – it will work on the long-lived batteries and accumulators.
Half of the energy on Earth produced at the plant.
Large solar power plants will be introduced in the deserts – in Arizona, Israel, Kazakhstan. By 2014, the technology has to be developed “collection” of solar energy in space and its focus is on earth.
Vehicles of the future will be little contact with the road – it will soar over it at a height of 0.5-1 m. “Emersed” moving along the surface of the water, there will be a river and sea transport.
Delivery of goods and materials will be something like a pneumatic tube.

By 2014, the unmanned ships reached Mars. At the same time, the program will be developed by a Martian colony.
The world population will reach 6.5 billion people.
The population explosion will cause more actively explore the arctic and desert space and colonize the shelf (the development of underwater cities)
In agriculture, the foundation of progress will make micro-organisms. In particular, they are processed into products of yeast and algae. However, by that time had not yet succeed in breaking the psychological resistance to such innovations.
Computer science will be the basis of the educational process in schools
Humanity will suffer from boredom. So psychiatry will be the most important medical specialty.
