We have seen great leaps in digital technology in past the past five years. However, it’s likely that some of these new technologies above will help in leading the charge to a 100% renewable future. Davis said Apple lost out on $114 million in profits because of the Samsung copycat devices. The design may be revived in the future, when more advanced materials technology and computer controls could make the concept more viable.
Glassdoor has 34 Think Future Technologies reviews submitted anonymously by Think Future Technologies employees. These estimates, however, were made with the assumption of solar cell efficiency (how much of the 1400 watts per square meter of sunlight they can convert into usable energy) of around 5%, typical for 1970s technology.
Tech Level: 10A technology that has been researched since the Cold War, it is used in a number of laboratory and research applications where large amounts of power needs to be generated almost instantly. As more people saw the value of having internet access, technology once again stepped up to eliminate the use of a phone line to access the internet with an even faster way to connect to the World Wide Web.
In the future a teacher could take their class on a tour of the Amazon rain forest or the Great Barrier Reef within cyberspace and allow each individual student to explore using their own avatar. The means to move such immense masses without rendering them completely uninhabitable would require incredibly advanced gravity manipulation or similar technology.
The indirect, ‘soft’ benefits of such a technology may still make it worth the investment. In fact, in a way it is here as several so-called tourists have made it to the International Space Station. He added that while Samsung knew it needed to alter its devices to compete with the iPhone, Apple has done the same thing with new devices like the iPad Mini.
