|1||For information and urgent help|
|2||World without buttons|
|3||To monitor and treat the disease|
|4||A built-in charger|
|5||Key under your skin|
|6||Big brother is watching you|
|7||Disadvantages of tech|
|8||Phone always on you|
|A||Sure, we’re virtually connected to our phones 24/7 now, but what if we could|
be literally plugged in to our phones? That’s already starting to happen. Last
year, for instance, artist Anthony Antonellis had a chip put in his arm that
could store and transfer data to his handheld smartphone. And researchers are
already experimenting with sensors that turn human bone into living speakers.
|B||In the future patients will be able to use implantable technologies to diagnose|
and even treat diseases. Scientists in London are developing swallowable
capsule-sized chip that will control fat levels in obese patients and generate
genetic material that makes them feel “full”. It has potential as an alternative to
surgery to handle obesity. Also it can monitor blood-sugar levels for diabetics.
|C||The U.S. military has programs to identify any person using face scanning|
device. Some people see it as a doubtless advantage: improved crime fighting,
secure elections and never a lost child again. However, such technologies can
hammer against social norms and raise privacy issues. And one day there might
be a computer to see all, know all and control all.
|D||One of the challenges for implantable tech is delivering power to devices|
which are inside human bodies. You can’t plug them in as you do with your
phone or computer. You can’t easily take them out to replace a battery. A team
in Cambridge is working on specific bio batteries that can generate power
inside the body, transfer it wirelessly where needed, and then simply melt
|E||Soon tattoos will not only make you look cool but will be able to perform|
useful tasks, like opening your car or entering smartphone codes with a fingerpoint.
Researchers have made an implantable skin fibers thinner than a human
hair. Scientists are working on the chip that can be put inside a finger through a
tattoo-like process, letting you unlock things or enter codes simply by pointing.
|F||The British research team is developing pills with microprocessors in them that|
can text to hospitals directly from inside your body. The pills can share inside
info to help doctors know if you are taking your medication properly and if it is
having the desired effect. Moreover, in case of emergency, it can send a signal
to the computer and the ambulance will come straight away.
|G||Lately touchscreens are everywhere – from computers, phones, tablets to car|
systems and vending machines. Even doorbells now include touch screen
controls. One has to wonder: are we moving to a world of only touchscreen
devices? And the answer is probably yes. We are coming to an age where every
flat or even curved surface could be made a touchscreen and we can operate

Driverless cars are expected to be rolling into the streets within the next 20
years. In fact, they’ve legally been on the roads for the past years, approved for
testing purposes. It is predicted that driverless vehicles will be commercially
available at a high cost within 7 years, but it may take another 8 years for prices to
drop enough to spur mass consumption.
Today, the discussions focus primarily on the shifting of accident liability to
manufacturers and all the goodness that comes along with reducing accidents. A
truly driverless road would not be accident-free as there would still be a number of
accidents caused by mechanical or computer errors, weather conditions,
pedestrians and sheer random chance. But it would make the now-routine loss of
life on the roads far rarer.
The concept of a “driver” will be replaced with that of an “operator”, who
simply programs the vehicle’s GPS to arrive at the desired destination and pushes
the “Start” button to begin the trip. Since judgment will no longer be required of
the operator, they won’t need a driver’s license. Theoretically, a 10-year-old child
could independently take the car to school in the morning.
Computer-operated cars will eventually reshape the car design as things like
windshields will become less necessary. Drivers will be able to sit wherever they’d
like in their cars. There will be no need for gas and brake pedals as speed will be
automatically controlled by the computer. The steering wheel and the turn signal
arm can also be eliminated once the public gets used to reliability of these vehicles.
Each passenger will have a personal video display informing about a current
location, the distance to your destination, speed and personal entertainment
selections. The concept of ‘distracted driving’ will disappear as there will be no
reason to pay attention to where you are going.
Vehicle owners will no longer buy collision insurance since manufacturers
will be solely responsible for damage. Owners will only need theft insurance and
coverage for hail, falling objects or floods. To take this one step further, personal
vehicle ownership may dramatically diminish. Car dealers will have lots full of
vehicles for hire on a daily or hourly basis instead of vehicles for sale. When you
need a car, you’ll summon one using your mobile phone. The closest unmanned
vehicle will be dispatched to your home to take you where you need to go. When
done, you’ll simply push the button for the unmanned vehicle to drive itself back
to the rental lot.
The social and cultural impact of driverless cars could cause far more
upheaval than any of us could imagine. Perhaps, it would be even greater than the
impact the Internet had on commerce and communication. Obviously, the picture
being painted is the one that assumes total adoption, which is far from realistic. You will always have transitional delays caused by the lack of free cars, the
longevity of today’s vehicles and cultural resistance.
This resembles the historical factors that affected the transition from horse to
the automobile. At the moment, the driverless car seems like a novelty. However,
it will open up new prospects. The prospect of flying cars may soon become a
reality. With computer-controlled vehicles that strictly follow traffic rules, three-dimensional
roads become far less scary and more a matter of simply solving the
Where we’re going, we may not need roads at all.
