La tecnología del futuro

Publicado en
¿Qué tecnologías están por venir? ¿Qué tecnologías formarán parte de nuestra vida cotidiana? ¿Cuáles son los inventos más impactantes? ¿Qué nos aguarda el futuro? Todas estas y otras muchas preguntas las responde la presentación sobre tecnologías futuras que tuve que realizar. Cuando la leas te darás cuenta que la última mención tecnológica que hago corresponde al ET3 que más detenidamente traté en una entrada anterior. Sólo menciono aquellos avances más importantes y no hablo de otros como el cubo de la fregona innovador que separa los compartimentos de agua sucia y de agua limpia ni la utilización de la clonación como mecanismo para curar enfermedades o para revivir especies extintas.
La presentación está en inglés por lo que si tu fuerte no es este idioma, puedes utilizar el traductor que tienes en la barra lateral derecha. Si por el contrario el inglés es lo tuyo, ánimo y adelante; si encuentras algún fallo que seguro que lo hay comunícalo por los comentarios. Más o menos dije:

In the last thirty years science and technology have progressed so much that our daily routine, habits and expectations have changed radically too. Our standard of living has definitely improved. However, the best is still to come.

In today’s presentation I’m going to speak about those future technologies that will form part of our life like the personal computer does now, for example. If we had explained barely the internet world to a boy twenty five years ago he would have said ‘what!?!?!? Are you fucking kidding me?!’ Nowadays, it happens almost the same if we are told about coming technologies. Let’s talk about a few of them that impressed me and I hope you find them interesting if you don’t know about them yet.

I’ll begin by the petrol replacement. Petrol is both used as fuel for cars and as the origin of plastics. It is a non renewable energy that will disapper in some years so, it must be replaced. It is being replaced as fuel for cars by renewable energies that don’t pollute like hydrogen. But, what do we do with plastics?
Don’t worry. There is a new technology that will solve the problem. It consists of  a bacterium digestion. This bacterium, called E. Coli, is the same that lives in our large intestine. When E.Coli eats sugar or glucose, then it shits acrylic acid, which can be used to create plastic. If a factory that employs this mechanism is built, emissions of CO2 will be reduced a 75% and climate change will stop. The first factory is going to be built in the USA in 2014.

Let’s now look at T.V. screen future. In few years, plasma, LCD and LED screens won’t be sold because new laser ones are better. With laser technology, screens will be even thinner than now, only a half centimetre or less. They will consume less energy, a third, but they will use more colours so the quality of images will be perfect. Both 3D and Laser technology will live together but this time, we won’t need to wear stupid glasses to watch 3D!
Moreover, the dual-view technology will be applied soon. Lots of problems will vanish! We always argue about what film, program or T.V. series we are going to watch. Problem solved. With Dual-view screens a person watches the Oscars Ceremony and other person can watch what he or she likes. Two different images in the same whole screen. It can also solve multiplayer’s problems. The ‘split-screen’ won’t be needed. Sony is trying this technology for first time in the game Killzone 3 and soon it will be available to public.

So much for T.V. It is the turn of new mobile phone generations. Nokia and LG are investigating the hydrogen battery mobiles, which are more respectful with environment than lithium batteries. It will help to make thinner mobiles, just 5 milimeters. Hydrogen batteries would be charged in only 10 minutes and it would last quite more. The first mobile phones using this technology will release  in two years. At first they will cost a fortune but they will be cheaper with time.
Lastly, let me talk about ET3, what means Evacuated Tube Transport technologies. It is very likely to be the transport of the future because all of its advantages. It consists of a tube with no air inside that conects two destinations. People would travel seated in comfortable seats placed in small capsules that move along the tube due to the frictionless magnetic levitation. It will reach a speed of 6500 km/h, what it is awesome. That will allow us to travel from New York to Beijing in only 2 hours, the same time that would take us to travel from Madrid to Washington. How much time would us take to go from Spain to Australia, our Antipodes? Only 3 hours! Remember that means more than 12.000 km. In addition, this transport requires less energy than a train line so its tickets would cost like a bus one. Its construction would neither cost as much as we first think: it costs 90% less than a road construction costs. The best thing is that it doesn’t  pollute anything and it avoid crash accidents, cancellations and traffic jams. The first ET3 line is likely to be built between China and India although it depends on politic agreements.
I’d like to finish with one famous Albert Einstein quote. He said, ‘I don’t think of the future, it comes soon enough.
