Some good bits:
 

 

The basic problem with the Aerial Hunter-Killer is that it would gobble up enormous amounts of fuel while in “hover mode,” 

 

 

Laser weapons capable of killing humans with a single shot are already being tested, and will be in service with the U.S. military by 2029, but plasma weapons won’t. In fact, plasma weapons might be inherently impractical to build at any point in the future.

 

...Therefore, while Schwarzenegger’s request for a “phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range” made no sense, asking for a “PULSED LASER rifle in the 40 watt range” would have used correct terminology and have referred to a plausible type of weapon. 

 

 

There’s no theoretical reason why the entire production chain of making a robot as complex as a T-800–from digging the raw metals out of the ground, refining them, forging and shaping them into body parts, assembling the parts, and transporting the finished product to its place of use–can’t be 100% automated someday. I conservatively predict that most manufactured goods will come from automated factories by 2100.

I bet pratically all goods will me produced through nanorobotics swarms and nanofactories in the year 2100. And robots will be more complex and more advanced than the t-800.

Will the real laser weapons fire pretty colours, or is that just the plasma ones?

Laser weapons would be invisible, unless going through precipitation, fog, or dust.

The John Connor/T-3000 came close to what I envision to be the most efficient model possible, but its sophistication is highly underutilized.

 

The human body enhanced by claytronics and nanorobotics made of fullerenes, graphene analogues, optoelectronic metabolisms, aerogel fillings, polyoxometalates, superhydrides, and organic-inorganic composites instead of metal/resign. A true union of natural and artificial will look more alien than anything we have imagined today, combining the adaptability of biological organisms and the durability of artificial constructs.

Laser weapons will not be limited to destructive ionizers. Subscribing to online science newsletters and updates solidified my idea that lasers have a lot of applications, not just scifi rifles. They can be used to cool objects to near absolute zero, reach negative temperatures, create tractor beams for tiny objects, transmit information, entangle photons, create quasiparticles and crystal defects, even rip spacetime into a blackhole. Laser-capable devices, equipped with the right lenses, mirrors, and couplers, utilized by the wildest imaginative minds, will pave the way for real-life superpowers. But for the most part, laser weapons that shoot colored beams are actually just magnetic air compressors coupled with igniters, creating a self-propelled plasma.


As you can see, I'm a huge nerd who'd rather write about how we can become a Type V civilization instead of study for my final exams (gotta fix that).

But to put an end to this topic, might I say that the one and only greatest future achievement of humankind is when it finally becomes posthumankind.

Of course. Rocket propulsion and power transmission are going to be big applications too. But we were discussing laser weapons.
