5 Industries of the (Near?) Future
Predicting anything about the future involves certain uncertainty, yet we can always guess as to how our will lives pan out or perhaps what kind of industries will prosper in the future through careful examination of human desire. So, whether or not you believe them to be true, here are 5 potentially promising industries the future summarised to stimulate your mind.
1. Digital currency
In 2008 Nakamoto Satoshi introduced Bitcoin to the world as a peer-to-peer transaction platform taking place without an intermediary. It is already a widely accepted currency, known for its convenience, privacy and transaction efficiency. Nevertheless, it is still early days for this FinTech boomer, and both developers and consumers need be wary of the potential for tax and computer crime.
2. Ageing Cure
Over the last hundred years, countless reasons have led to the dramatic increase in human life expectantcy in every continent. It’s an exciting time we live in! What if someone invents a single pill which can intrinsically increase a few years of life, would you be able to turn it down?
3. Weather Control
Famously China ‘summoned the rain’ in the Beijing Olympics opening and closing ceremonies, but there are many more countries investing in tech that provides more than just a weather forecast. Qatar is even planning to create robotic clouds to give shade to their 2022 world cup stadiums! What next?
4. Sleeping Efficiency
Have you ever taken a 20min power nap which gave you more refreshment than a entire night’s rest? An average human sleeps 8 hours a day. What if some of those hours are actually being wasted? Our living time could increase by up to 30%! This is certainly an interesting point of development to watch out for.
5. Time machine
We’ve all seen movies about time machines. Many scientific opinions and theories exist, yet this is still a field where, despite mass research, there have been very few vaguely related proofs to affirm even its possibility. Nevertheless, with recent breakthroughs in other previously coined ‘lunatic theories’, are you going to tell me it’s out of the question? (If so, please leave a comment…)
