What Technologies Do You Think Will Emerge And Dominate Our Lives In The Next 30 Years?

I'm reading The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future by Kevin Kelly and it has me pondering how much technology has changed in the past 30 years and how much it's going to continue to change over the next 30 years. In the book, he details how he had a meeting with some big whigs over at ABC around 30 years ago to explain the internet to them and they wouldn't take his advice to purchase the abc.com domain. These executives couldn't imagine the internet would turn into the collaborative tool it has become. No one expected consumers to be creating massive amounts of content in various forms and no studio had the time, money, and resources to create content at a pace that would satisfy the demand. Like the ABC executives most people would have never imagined the internet would become what it is today and I'm sure the internet is going to look completely different in another 30 years. Would love to hear savage's bold predictions on the technologies they think will end up dominating our lives. My prediction is things like neural link will make language barriers obsolete and this will allow for more global commerce, communication, and travel. I'm also hopeful crypto will become a global currency so people don't ever have to worry about dealing with horrible middlemen when they need to exchange their domestic currency for a foreign one.

Hyperloops or some equivalent of hyper speed travel. I honestly hope they make neural links for language translation - I feel like I miss out so much when I travel by not being able to communicate effectively.ย

Agreed BigMeech. Wish I spoke more languages so I could experience the culture better when I traveled

I envision phones getting smaller but having a deeper connection between you and the world. Your phone will essentially be your personal beacon that can connect you to screens, machines, computers, networks, payment platforms, etc, without you having to directly engage with anything.

Also, autonomous cars will be truly autonomous. You order a car to take you to x, and the car can daisy chain with others going the same direction to reduce chaos and improve travel efficiency. Kind of like the cars in Westworld.

Spot on predictions. Might need to put some money in uber because as of now they seem like they're the company in the best position to capitalize onย vehicles becoming truly autonomous.

Every or at least 80% of appliances in people homes will be smart appliances (i.e. smart Tv, smart fridge, smart ovens, smart beds, etc) โ€” and I really hope Iโ€™m wrong on that one.
