Does Modern Technology Live Up To The Predictions Of The Past?


Aims and objectives set in the past lead us to our future. The same applies to technology. The technocrats had also professed to make the best possible use of smart technology for accomplishing their future goals. While some of these objectives have been successfully met, others are still in ‘work in progress’ mode. A few other smart gadgets are still in the infant stage. Let’s have a quick look at what we had planned to do and where do we stand in terms of technology.

Technical Components

Our ancestors could not think beyond their black-and-white world. However, gradually, the world got introduced to many colorful new gadgets such as television, computers and recently laptops. Besides these, we also have personal e-devices that have made our lives easier. So, to a larger extent, the past predictions of moving into a more colorful world, dominated by smart gadgets, has definitely come true.

Flying Cars

The concept of flying cars is based on the principle of controlled flying. This unique thought was first patented in 1908. These cars are not to be confused with airplanes. Rather, the new gadgets are expected to reduce travel times in the busiest cities of the world. People will remain in their cars and instead of moving across roads, they will travel in the air. Rapid advancements in this smart technology are expected to start in 2019. As of now, flying cars do exist, but not on a large-scale.

Jetpacks

This smart gadget is basically a machine that can be put on like a backpack and it helps flying. It is expected to reduce the travel time for people across any regions. Once we have it in the future, users can wear it and move across and beyond the geographical limits of the country. As one of the new gadgets, it shall enable people to quickly fly to work or move into neighboring countries for quick sightseeing. Soldiers can also wear it and derive maximum benefits from this uniquely styled backpack. Unfortunately, just like china gadgets have their cons, jetpacks can also be misused by wrongdoers.

Warp Speed

This is a remarkable china gadget that shall help people fly faster than light. However, a lot of planning still needs to be done about its deployment and authentic utility. So, we cannot expect it anywhere in the near future. Its superluminal speed is likely to take people from one corner of the world to another. The best part of this smart gadget is that users can defeat light and move around like a free bird.
