You cannot image what future looks like, right? But there are numerous predictions about inventions which will change the face of each by 2040.
Imagine you are in the 1990s. You don’t have a mobile phone, and you don’t have social media accounts. You don’t even have online shopping options.
If you want to listen to a song, you need to buy cassettes. If you want to visit an unknown place, you don’t have Google Maps. And the list is endless. Frustrating, right?
Cut to 2022. We are just 22 years into the 21st century, and look how much we have transformed! Gone are the days when people required tourist guides.
Whether we are happier than our previous generation is a topic of discussion for another time.
Have you ever wondered that if so much has changed in the last twenty years, how much will change in the upcoming twenty years? Let’s look at some possibilities of inventions that will change the world till 2040.
Robots Could Replace Humans
You must have seen robots replacing humans in fiction. Fiction might turn into a reality soon. Robotics is progressing too fast.
Experiments are being done in AI and Robotics, and soon they’ll replace drivers, delivery agents, pilots, laborers. But specific works will remain outside their claws, for example, psychologists, judges, lawyers. We might benefit from the robots or become slaves of our invention.
Drones were limited to a few tasks a few years back. Now, it is widely used in photography. In the next 20 years, delivery websites will use it to deliver their stuff like food and other goods. The drone delivery system will be ubiquitous, without a doubt. Companies like Amazon are already hiring drones for their product deliveries.
Virtual Feelings May Become The Smarter Choice
According to the UK futurists, “in 2050, sexual contact between a person and an electronic device or a robot will occur more frequently than between two people.”
With advancements in technology and the interpretation of human behavior, we might create robots that better perceive ‘How We Feel.
Starting from using personally designed s*x toys to getting exactly consoled by a robot we would want may be the next big thing in the future. Well! is this one of the inventions that you’d be open to going for in 2040? Do tell us in the comments.
You know how difficult it is to get an organ transplant. You need to wait for a long time. 2040 will possibly see no more wait for organ transplants or no organ donations. Thanks to Organ Printing.
It allows the design of a replica of the patient’s organ and bingo! The organ will be manufactured. It has a lot of benefits. People won’t face the problem of organ shortage. All hospitals would have their 3D printers and locally produced organs.
Also, it could be used for drug testing. Thus, if challenges like blood vessels are eliminated, we can soon benefit from organ printing.
Metaverse at Its Peak
You must be knowing that Facebook recently made news after CEO Mark Zuckerberg changed the name to Meta. Metaverse is a world that exists beyond our World. It is more of a virtual world that feels real.
Facebook has already started creating the version of a metaverse where people can interact. Virtual Reality will soon mix with absolute Reality, making them indistinguishable.
Efficient Threat Elimination
Have you watched the film Ghost in the Shell? If you have, you must know what the movie is about. Based on 2029, this sci-fi thriller movie dealt with cybernetic technology.
It is not difficult to predict that 2040 would see the same thing in Reality. That would require analyzing potential threats and taking steps to eliminate them.
A bridge will connect the natural world and the digital World. The name of the bridge is IoT (Internet of Things. Imagine a situation. You get up in the morning and have a scheduled meeting. Your shower opens automatically to your preferred temperature.
Your self-driving car will be waiting for you in front of your door. IoT will become the brain of your house. Guess what? Your coffee maker will also be able to collect data. Isn’t that great?
Vehicles Taking People to Other Planets
Imagine booking a cab and selecting the drop location as Jupiter. Sounds crazy, right? Well, it would not, in the next 20 years. Vehicles will be invented to take people to other planets in outer space and even drop them back. You might be able to make some new friends out there with this new invention, who knows!
Won’t it be great if personalized medicines were available for all? Yes, that can be made available with genetic editing and sequencing. The cost might be a problem for this invention, but apart from that, it would be a great idea.
You have heard about Elon Musk’s hyperloop project. You would be able to travel 700 miles per hour inside a floating pod. How will that happen? You will be made to travel through tunnels or tubes that will have the air removed from it to reduce friction.
AR Would Eliminate Smartphones
In 2040, people might be laughing at you for using a smartphone, as stated by Pearson. Augmented Reality would allow you to see screens fitted in your jewelry.
We are living in a time of drastic change. The World will witness a massive shift in technology, which will affect our daily lives. To adapt to them, we should shed off orthodoxies and prepare to embrace the new inventions in open arms, only if their pros outweigh their cons.
So do you agree with our list of inventions that will change the world till 2040? Let us know in the comments below.
