(future technology trends and predictions)

Future technology is what scientists, researchers, futurists (and even science fiction wirters) and others dream up first. Then some of them will go to work to make it a reality. Future tech encompasses many different areas from nanotechnology, science and medicine, computers and many other specific areas including space tourism, concept cars, futuristic weapons, 3D printing and many areas of which people have not dreamed yet.

Future Technology

Future tech trends may be thought of as either leading edge or "bleeding edge" technology in that this cutting edge is not without its trials and tribulations. For instance, for investors, pouring speculative money into predictions that emerging technology will pay off may not yield results for decades if ever.

Money on emerging tech may be wasted in the eyes of some who decide that caution is the better part of valor. But, for a few mavericks, the payoff is in the project itself, and not necessarily in the economic payoff (of course for a few of the lucky ones the money may be huge).

Mainstreaming ...

A few people get to have their cake and eat it too when it comes to the tech of the future. The likes of Bill Gates and Steven Jobs (R. I. P.) are a couple of examples of those who have poured time, money and effort into future predictions and forecasts and have been paid handsomely when their dreams have gone mainstream.

Nanotechnology is not only a hot topic right now but for the forseeable future. Chemistry, applied physics, materials science, electrical and mechanical engineering are all hip deep in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Expect this trend to keep climbing.

A couple of other trends in tech are future cars and future weapons. The Discovery Channel now has programs on each one of these areas with a growing number of viewers interested in what the future holds.

Futuristic cars may be hydrogen, battery electric, bio-fuel, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, driverless, intelligent, dual fuel, solar or flying automobiles not yet conceived yet on the drawing board (or 3D computer animation program). Fuel cell vehicles are a tempestuous topic right now, but the future is uncertain and there is much room for speculation on which technology will take root in the years to come.

Future weapons are also of great interest to many (think 3D printing and then some). Not only are people wanting to know about such large subjects as America's interest in developing a new hydrogen bomb, but also non-lethal and less lethal weapons of the future. Some of the futuristic weapons can send a heat pulse to disperse and angry mob or emit a beam to freeze a person in his or her tracks.

What Up?

The only certainly about future tech, however, is that it is uncertain. The realm of future predictions is the realm of possibilities. What is possible? What is on the drawing boards now?

How long will it be until these great ideas become mainstream reality? These are burning questions many people want to know and we will attempt to answer as many of these questions as we can through this website. And when it comes to these forecasts of the future, as comedian David Letterman may say, please no wagering.
