Floating farms, brain wave passwords, and coffee-powered cars are just some of the incredible inventions and innovations that will shape our future. And although interest in time travel is fairly consistent across age groups, it holds little appeal to older adults—just 3% of seniors mentioned time travel or a time machine as their future invention of choice. Both hope to have a working blended wing jetliner commercially available by 2020.
The timing was phenomenal — as we were testing proof of concept of this technology the whole industry was getting more interested in smaller satellites. Certain terrestrial challenges are viewed as even more daunting, as just 19% of Americans expect that humans will be able to control the weather in the foreseeable future.
Progress with driverless-car technology has rekindled long-held hopes that flying can be made simpler, opening access to personal air travel as a viable alternative to road transport, particularly in gridlocked urban areas. These are stories that try to explain simply how our complex behavioural patterns adapt to technology.
This will be resolved with a patchwork of agreements and alliances between the U. S. Russia, China, Japan, India and other future players in the space marketplace. In the future drones will be able to fire lasers, blasts of electromagnetic radiation and biological weaponry.
These have greater potential fuel efficiency and much higher power-to-weight at very high altitudes where future high-fuel-eff airliners could fly, and are much less costly. To help shape the final phase of our work, we would like your views on the forces of change and the impact they will have on the Internet in the future.
