Just a few things...

-Personalised education.
-Terraformation of mars.
-The eclipse of fossil fuels with fusion and renewables.
-The development of AI and integration of AI into normal life.
-Indefinite lifespans thorough biological regeneration and/or mind uploading.

Is minic an fhírinne searbh.

Infinite: It was half an allusion to the general assumption that there will be a huge upheaval in between the end of the capitalist age and whatever comes next, and half a Gil Scott-Heron reference.



Cerealkiller: Me neither. Didn't think about any temporal order, these are just the things I can't wait for.

Ok thanks :)

-The revolution

The revolution?
What revolution

 

Saw a couple of punks on the bus last week. The one had a patch pinned onto her jacket that read, "The Revolution isn't coming." That's the truth, right there. It isn't.

What I can't wait for. Improved solar and idiot proof 3-d printing.

Interactive holograms will be awesome, man. The Hololens is so exciting. I can't wait for a few years time when it actually becomes affordable.

Microbots and nanobots that fix up wounds such as paper cuts and remedy headaches.
Annoying as hell, man.

On top of that, imagine this sort of invention:

 

"Zitsucker". So you apply this nanite glue onto a pimple or blackhead. It kinda sorta itches for a second unless it temporarily shuts off nerves. It seeps into that pore and begins sucking out the bacteria and dirt inside, gradually ballooning a bit almost like a tick. Or you can put a whole sheet on your face and it sucks out all the blackheads/pimples. Then it drops off or you can pull it off. 

It's like a jelly tick but useful and only works on a few things and made of n a n o t e c h n o l o g y. Because goddamn, I have a pimple right on my forehead between my eyes and I'd love nothing more than to zap it somehow.

Everyday life:

- Medical nanobots inside my body to monitor (and fix if required) my health.

- Security nanobots to monitor everything around me, provide the initial defence or (in worst case) help police to instantly identify the offender.

Alas, both will not happen during my lifetime.

 

Science:

- Clear and 100% evidence of alien civilization(s) but NOT direct contact.

We can't know: will it happen tomorrow or will not happen at all. 

 

Politics:

- Fall of American empire, reconstruction of international politics from "hegemon and others" to 5-10 equally influental and cooperating great powers.

Already began, but this will be a long road.

Why do you think the nanobot prediction won't happen? The biggest bottleneck towards it is computing power, and this is actually the same thing that prevents microchips from becoming ubiquitous. The hardware's actually been figured out.
A couple years ago, we created the two things most necessary for the (mechanical) realization of hard nanotech—

 

One nanometer thick graphene mimics two stroke combustion engines, but without the side effects

 

Engineers Build World's Smallest, Fastest Nanomotor

 

After that, the only issue will be getting a suitable body (for which bacteriophages will probably be a suitable base) and then getting suitable computers. I've been meaning to post something on graphene today, something else that shows off its prowess as a material.

Cheap anti-aging for all.

 

Everything else can come after this. ;)

There's a lot of things I can't wait for on my plate. A few examples are:
-FIVR
-ASI
-Space travel
-nanobots to repair cell damage
-Holographic technology
-Virtual Worlds
-Time travel
-Nano clothing
-Cybernetics
-Virtual Telepathy
-Anti Gravity

The list can go on.

From a more scientific standpoint:
-Unlocking the mysteries of Dark Matter and Energy
-Finding out more about Black Holes
-What does it mean to be councious
-Do parallel and alternate universes exist
-Discovering intelligent extraterrestrial life

It's 32 and a half years from now. By 2050 I'll be 49 years old. If you were to look back 32 and a half years ago back in around 1985, we have advanced quite substantialy sense then.

Cant wait for anti-ageing nanobots. Hope they´re avaiable during my parent´s lifetime. If they advance enough to anti-age us, we can live to see all the predictions coming true.

Virtual Reality for a very personal reason that I won't say because it's stupid and I'll look weird for it.

 

Plus I'm obsessed with escapism because of my over active imagination and anxiety issues.

The colonization of space. It has been within reach my entire life but just not important enough to the people with the money to make it happen.


I miss JCO.

Anyway, on topic I pick genetically engineered microbes that absorb carbon from the ocean

You can just say "I can't wait for Virtual Reality", you don't actually need to keep reminding us that you have a secret reason for wanting it that you think we won't respect.

 

You can keep alluding to it if you like though, but none of us know what you're talking about.

 

I am interested in FIVR to satisfy my megalomaniacal urge to rule over nations and play with global politics like a paradox strategy game, but without any of the responsibility, consequences and paperwork which would make it no fun in real life. 

 

Also for porn reasons.  :biggrin:

I know I could've worded it simpler, I don't know why I did that. ^^;
