Today's booming Internet gives us an unexpected surprise in life. What will our life be like in 2100? Have you thought about it? Maybe you thought about it, but can you think of it? Here is the current scientist 2100 The prediction of the life of the year, if these predictions can become a reality, will make the world change dramatically, the rhythm of the future of science and technology life is really beyond our imagination.
Scientists predict technology life in 2100
1, ** store Appeared: 2030 years ago
Projector: Dr. Anthony Atala of Wake Forest University
If you are unfortunate enough to have a car accident or illness, people can order spare organs cultivated from their own cells from the “** store”.
Scientists can now cultivate cartilage, nose, ears, bones, skin, blood vessels and heart valves. Four years ago, they bred the first bladder and last year bred the first trachea. In the next five years, scientists will be able to nurture. Dr. Atala said: "What we can foresee is that we will be able to provide ready-made organs in the future. People only need to take out the damaged organs and implant new organs as needed."
2, contact lenses that can access the Internet Appeared: 2030 years ago
Projector: Professor Barbuck A. Parviz from the University of Washington, Seattle
The glasses will also recognize the facial features of the person and display the life of the person seen, and can translate one language into another so that people can read the subtitles displayed on the lens. Perhaps the students who are preparing for the final exam will be the first customers of this contact lens, and believe that it will also be loved by science fiction fans.
3, mind reading time: 2030 years ago
Projector: Kendrick Kaye of the University of California at Berkeley
Current technology can implant a chip into the brain of a patient with a stroke and connect the chip to a laptop. These patients will eventually learn how to use their minds to edit emails, play video games and surf the web.
Kay is working on a "word of thought" that he has developed a computer program that can crack brainwave signals. He said: "It is possible to identify specific images seen by patients from a large number of images, and it is possible to restore this image simply by detecting the activity of its brain."
Japan's Honda Company has built a robot, and helmet-equipped employees can control the robot's activities through ideas.
4. The resurrection of extinct animals Appeared: 2070 years ago
Predictor: Dr. Robert Lanza, American Advanced Cell Technology Corporation
In the future we will be able to have a zoo for the killing of animals. Lanza was able to extract the available DNA from the dead bodies of animals that had died for 25 years, and implanted them into the egg cells of the cows. After 9 months, a cloned animal was born. In this way, this species is even resurrected.
Even though the Neanderthals have been dying for tens of thousands of years, their DNA has been deciphered, so some scientists are discussing whether to resurrect them. Lanza believes: "If we have the tools to control genes, then theoretically it will be possible to use genetic resurrection species. The question is, should we do this?"
5. Integration of humans and robots Appeared: 2100 years ago
Forecaster: MIT Rodney Brooks
In the next few years, robots may have the same intelligence as mice, cats or dogs and even monkeys. By that time, some people thought that robots might be dangerous. It has been suggested that we should implant chips in their "brains" so that once they have produced bad thoughts, they can be turned off. But some people say why different robots are integrated? This is Brooks' idea. He was the head of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
He said: "In the 50 years from now, we will be able to see a fundamental change in the human body through genetic modification. The human population will change in ways that people can't imagine today. We will find ourselves no longer Darwin's theory of evolution is limited. My prediction is that by 2100 years ago, our daily life will be filled with intelligent robots, and human beings cannot distinguish themselves from them. We will also be robots and connect with robots."
The advantage of this is that one day when you wake up, you will find that your body is perfect: beautiful, super strong and immortal.
6, deformation time: 2100 years ago
Predictor: American Intel Corporation Jason Campelli
In the movie "Terminator 2" or "X-Men", there are scenes of shape deformation, and this is also the dream of scientists who study "programmable substances." They made a computer chip the same size as a needle cap, which is a nano-scale microcomputer called "catoms." These computer chips are programmed, and the chips have different combinations depending on the predetermined charge.
Campelli said: "For example, my phone is too big in my pocket. If I have it in my hand, it is too small. If I have as many (programmable) chips as 200 to 300 ml, then I can always let The phone has become the shape I want. Justin Ratner, a senior researcher at Intel, said: "This will be a very common technology in the next 40 years. ”
So at Christmas time, all we need to do is download the software for our gift, and then press the button and the gift will appear.
7. Construction of the interstellar spacecraft Appeared: 2100 years
Projector: Dr. Mason Peck, Cornell University
The stars are too far away from us, and even the most recent stars need our rockets to spend more than 70,000 years to arrive. But Peck believes that the first Starship will be a tiny computer chip, only the size of the fingernail.
Even if only a small number of chips reach the star, this is enough to send back valuable information. Dr. Peck’s vision is to fire millions of chips around Jupiter so that the powerful magnetic fields around Jupiter will accelerate them to “tens of thousands of kilometers per second”, and he believes that this speed can be increased indefinitely until it approaches the speed of light. .
8, delay aging time: 2070 years ago
Projector: Dr. Leonard Gualante, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Although no one can find elixir, scientists can now analyze the process of cell aging from the perspective of genetics and molecular science. Many genes that affect aging have been discovered in yeast cells, fruit flies and worms.
Scientists have extended the lifespan of insects, mice, rabbits, dogs, cats and monkeys through "heat control." That is, if you reduce your calorie intake by 30% when you feed them, you can extend their life by 30%. Guarente discovered the SIR2 gene, which may explain the mystery of "calorie control."
9, space elevators appeared: 2100 years ago
Projector: Bradley Edwards, founder of Carbon Design
Imagine that one day you walked into the elevator and pressed the rise button to get to outer space. Isn't it cool? This is the space elevator, which will make the dream of opening the universe to tourists a reality.
At present, it takes about 53,000 yuan to launch a thing weighing about 2.2 kilograms into low-earth orbit. However, space elevators can greatly reduce the cost and allow ordinary people to travel in space.
The manned space of the space elevator can move on tens of millions of meters of cable, while the cable is fixed by the centrifugal force generated by the rotation of the earth. The emergence of carbon nanotubes has taken a step toward the realization of this dream. Edwards has proven that nanotechnology can be used to make ultra-strong cables that support space elevators.
He said: "Building a 200-ton elevator is a reasonable idea and has commercial value. A 200-ton space elevator is the size of a large business jet. The size of the space elevator depends entirely on our wishes and is not subject to any Physical level limitations."
10. Beat the cancer. Time: 2100 years ago
Projector: Leroy Hod, Seattle Institute of Systems Biology
Now, when people find that a tumor is found in the chest, there may be 10 billion cancer cells in the tumor. But in the future, the protein released by hundreds of cancer cells in the district can be identified by the DNA chip installed in the toilet, which will lead to the discovery of the tumor 10 years earlier. From then on, the word "tumor" will disappear from the world.
People's medical examination methods will also change. Hod once wrote: "In June 2018, Sally took out a small device and pressed it on her finger to take a small drop of blood. With this drop of blood, 2000 different tests can be performed and the data Wirelessly sent to a remote computer for analysis... Micro devices will detect thousands of blood components, and DNA sequencers will be able to quickly decipher an individual's genome."
In addition, scientists have developed "nanoparticles", which are tiny molecules. These molecules can destroy cancer cells like smart bombs. In past experiments, killing 90% of cancer cells in this way would revolutionize cancer treatment.
These top ten scientists predict whether it will become a reality, let us look forward to it, and look forward to the moment of witness!
