We have collected examples of the most promising technologies that will soon be able to provide tremendous opportunities for all of humanity. Be sure to read on, because many of these developments will be available in the near future.
Salt nanofiber filters can convert ocean water into drinking nanofibers – it’s incredibly thin material, its thickness is less than 100 nanometers. And because the individual grains of salt are too big to pass through its holes, it can serve as a super-efficient desalination plant. Unfortunately, its price is too high to expand its mass production now.
A computer chip that can kill cancer, can live in the human circulation This chip is called the “microfluidic”, and it is covered with long strands of DNA. DNA absorbs harmful cancer cells, and if they are necessary for the study, they can later be removed from the chip.
Graphene supercapacitors can afford to create an electric car of the future Imagine electric vehicle that can travel several hundred kilometers, and then fully recharge in one minute. Graphene supercapacitors can make a picture of absolute reality. They can store up as much energy as batteries, but charged at the same much faster. Graphene has a high energy density, and because its price is not exorbitant, supercapacitors based on it very soon may appear in our phones, laptops, and virtually any device running on batteries.
You can store information in their DNA, scientists were able to encode the DNA record an audio clip of the famous speech of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” as well as photos, a copy of the articles of Watson and Crick of the “double helix” in 1953, and 154 sonnets of Shakespeare. Later, they were able to extract them back up 99.99 percent. As soon as we add more and more information in our main store – the Internet, we are coming closer and closer to the point where we have to completely rethink our methods of data storage.
A substance called L-methionine can prevent hearing loss due to the constant noise of course, this is a preventive rather than restorative measure, but in fact identified pharmacological agent that could be the salvation of urban construction workers – pills that can protect their ears from acoustic torture jackhammers.
Interface “brain-mind” will directly supervise and interact with other living beings Harvard researchers have created a sensitive neuro-headset that is able to control the body of another creature, and successfully tested it on animals. There are many rumors that once the technology can allow even communicate with them.
Memristors radically change the world of electrical engineering Nothing will change the future of computer equipment as pervasive adaptation memristor – a new fourth type of electrical component, the name of which comes from the words “memory” and “resistor”. For a long time, the engineers are only three basic components to create electrical circuits – inductors, capacitors and resistors. Adding a fourth component means that the circuit can now be exponentially more complex. And, for example, Hewlett-Packard has been actively working in this direction. As explained by experts from HP Labs R. Stanley Williams, “memristors retain their state longer. They are easier. They are easier to produce – and this means that they are less expensive – and can be switched more quickly and with less energy. “
Solar paint can turn any object into an energy source Researchers at Notre Dame have created a paint that turns any surface into a solar panel. It is not yet fully finished, so we will not see it all around us in the very near future, but it’s worth it to wait for her.
Femto photo will allow you to photograph objects that are located around the corner from you Imagine a camera with a “slow-mo” is so fast that it records each frame in the space of just two parts per trillion seconds. Tests have shown that this imaging technology is so effective that it can even record the motion of photons. And also you can use it to take a picture of something, located around the corner from you.
