The Robots and Machines of 2040

Human kind is advancing really fast. People have always been talking about "What will the world look like in the future?". It really makes you think. I will tell you one simple thing, we are already in the future! Things are going faster then ever!

From the end of World War Two, computers have evolved from big room sized boxes to smart phones that can fit into your pocket. Computer part and manufacturing is getting cheaper and cheaper. One thing that is evolving with them is Artificial Intelligence, called "AI". AI is human made software that is intelligent enough to think on it's own and interact with people and other AIs. Robots can also be programmed with AI systems.

In the year 2040, robots will look like humans. They will speak with humans. They will make other robots. But not all robots will look like us. Only ones that will interact with us will look like us, the other will be very different. There will be micro robots that will live in our bodies with only one purpose. That purpose is to "Repair" us. Illnesses will not be cured with medications anymore, but with micro robots. While micro robots replace medications, human like robots will replace doctors, psychiatrists, dentists... etc

There will be robots that look like cars, airplanes and ships. They will operate and transport us on their own. Not only the transportation will become robots but whole factories also. People will not do physical work anymore. They will become that smart, that they will build new facilities whenever there is a need for that. New supermarkets, skyscrapers and schools will emerge in few hours.

One of the good things is that probably, there will be no wars anymore. Robots will not let us do that. They are rational beings and the war is everything but rational. Security robots will be always watching us and controlling our behavior.

If you think that the year of 2040 is to early for that, you are making a BIG mistake! Even now, there are self driven cars, human like robots, factory robots. You can not imagine what all can be invented in only ten years from now.

The future is interesting, but very scary. Maybe that much scary, that some of us don't even want to speak or think about it. The only thing that I want to know is "Will we be safe with them around?", not from wars and illnesses, but from them...

The Advanced Technology of 2025

The advancement in technology in the past few years has been nothing short of staggering. Machines are increasingly taking over our daily lives, and things that must have seemed impossible to our parents are now a vivid reality. The day may not be far when we wake up in, say the year 2025, and find that magical and psychic powers that were once found only in science-fiction and fantasy movies have become a reality.

Mind-controlled machines: Imagine being able to control mechanical and electronic devices with just a thought. Electric signals from your brain will be conducted by electrodes to external devices, activating them and allowing them to perform actions, simply by your thoughts, without any touch.

Telepathy: People with electrodes implanted in them may be able to transmit their thoughts as electric signals to each other thereby allowing telepathic communication or silent talk between people. This technology could find massive appeal in a battlefield scene where soldiers will b…

Mysterious Encounters of Everyday Life

"I'd rather be a dysfunctional soul than a well adjusted robot."
- Thomas Moore

It seems these days that we want to understand, explain and find a use for everything we encounter. If we get stuck, we can find an answer on Google or some other search engine. Often we become so involved in the practical that we completely miss most of the little delights along our life path. This seems especially true of things which have no easy explanation.

At the end of the day, many people add up what they have accomplished since they got out of bed. I wonder how many people count the little delights which have passed their way during the day. If you become too busy with the practical, you will most likely miss the fanciful.

So what? The question is what your life is for. What is its meaning? If you just count what you accomplish in a day, you have a list at the end of the day and start a new one the next day. But there is more to life if you allow it into your awareness. I am talking abou…
