Future Technology



Food from the 3D printer, flying taxis, and robots that operate us: what can we expect in the future? Here are 20 fascinating ideas and inventions that could soon become part of our everyday lives.

1. Change of perspective of reality?

The "Pokémon" hype was just the beginning. Soon, of course, we will be using Augmented Reality (AR), the fusion of the "real" and simulated world on the smartphone. There are already z. B. from Dulux paint maker, an app that simulates on the screen what the room would look like in pale pink or bottle green. And: after the failure of the "Google Glass"

Apple should now participate in an AR project.


2. Technological fashion always with you

Have you heard of "wearables"? Experts predict that the digital technology we use in our bodies will explode. What's Next: Smart glasses, smart headphones, and smart clothes like yoga suits are made of silver fabric that can store body heat and use this energy to charge the smartphone. Also imaginable: clothing for diabetics that records insulin values.


3. Reflection of the village community

Each for himself? We increasingly feel that we are reaching a dead end. We need the support of others so that older people can relax, children can grow well, and relationships are not overwhelmed. The “Solidarity Communities” and “CoHousing” projects will in the future be what rural communities used to be: places where people take care of each other.


4. Dream job with 50+

Do you want to change jobs in middle age? Until now, this was considered difficult or impossible. But the date of birth will no longer be so crucial in the future, CVs can be more colorful. Why? The high German median age of around 44 and the increased fitness of the elderly ensures that we will all remain relevant to the economy for longer, especially in the service sector. One pioneer is, for example, the hotel company Derag Livinghotels. Employees who are older or who have never had anything to do with the hotel business have a chance there. A Hamburg pharmacy chain is training for more than 55 years as branch managers. And a study by the banking group KfW shows that one in three entrepreneurs is already over 45 years old.


5. Nutritional value

Insects could be an alternative to meat rich in protein and, above all, organic. If not for the dislike for worms, Made & Co. 3-D printer helps form mealworm paste into a steak without further ado. The exhibition "Food Revolution 5.0" at the Museum of Art and Commerce in Hamburg (until October 29), mkg-hamburg.de, shows more futuristic ideas


6. Speed ​​observation

Drive-in, that was once, and now it's back: Last year, automaker Ford applied for a patent for an "Autonomous Vehicle Entertainment System." In the autonomous car, the film is projected on a screen in front of the windshield. Difficult traffic? Nothing to get mad about then!


7. Smart LED: my light, your light

We have known for several years that there are receptors in the eye that are only responsible for regulating the internal clock. Short wave light (blue) brings you to life, long-wave light (red) makes you feel tired. The unsolved problem was that the bright blue screens on our computers and smartphones interfere with a healthy night's sleep. With the help of LED technology, we can now regulate the color of the light individually and based on the time of day. Therefore, a smart LED light will replace almost all other artificial light sources.


8. Travel faster

From Munich to Berlin in an hour? Without taking the air? With the "Hyperloop" this could be a reality in a few years. This aluminum ballpoint pen, somewhat short and without windows, holds about 30 people. The projectile is chased through a nearly evacuated tube at just over 1000 kilometers per hour. The optimists of the startup "Hardt Global Mobility" want to connect Amsterdam and Paris with a "Hyperloop" route by 2021. Travel time? 30 minutes! A 30-meter test track is already installed.


9. future? Much is a coincidence!

Historian Joachim Radkau investigates how people used to imagine the future.


DONNA: How good were the tipsters in the past?

Joachim Radkau: They were often wrong! In 1970, renowned futurologists believed that floating nuclear power plants in the Wadden Sea were possible. Helgoland would become an atomic island. The total ignorance of the experts about the miniaturization of computers and smartphones is also noteworthy.


Why are things so often different than expected?

Matches play an important role. For example, accidents or deaths that drastically change the course of history. The future surprises us again and again because there are often synergistic effects in developments that were previously perceived separately from one another. Third, trends can cause countertrends, especially if they go too far.

10. Traffic? Take off!

Flying over the traffic jam after work? The flying car "PAL-V" makes it possible: it curves sportily through the streets on three wheels or it just takes off. The price has also risen: the basic version of the “Personal Air and Ground Vehicle” costs around 300,000 euros and will be available for purchase from 2018. And of course, a pilot's license is required.


11. Lab chops

The “Hamburger Lab” is not in Hamburg, but in Maastricht, the Netherlands. Here, professor of medicine Mark Post is making a meatloaf for which no animal has to go to the slaughterhouse. To do this, it is multiplying muscle stem cells from cattle in bioreactors. One of the funders of this project is Google co-founder Sergey Brin and he knows the investments that pay off. The meat should be ready to market in about three years, and the meatball will cost about $ 10. The interesting question will be: Are you still a vegetarian when you can taste test-tube meat?


12. New colleagues

He's just gotten used to the Deliveroo and Lieferando bike couriers when R2-D2 shows up and takes over the job. In a pilot project with Starship Technologies, Foodora is testing whether robots can be used as vendors. Little helpers tour Hamburg's trendy Sternschanze district (so far with human observers). There's also something going on in the air: In the US, the 7-Eleven food chain has been delivering by drones for six months.


13. The printer turns into a bed

No more long transportation routes and food waste. We will soon be using the 3-D printer to create an edible growing medium that looks like a little cream (this delicious Portuguese tart). The soil contains seeds, spores, and yeast. In a few days, mushrooms and herbs grow from there, whatever we have planted. The healthy, high-tech finger food that is sustainably produced.

14. Cash laughs

But how long? The Chinese can already use an Alipay app (part of Alibaba, the Chinese Amazon) abroad. All that is required is to scan a barcode on the buyer's smartphone at checkout. A selfie of your eye serves as authorization.


15. Two- and three-wheelers are on the rise

Those who plant roads will reap traffic. Traffic jam rates show that more, wider roads only generate more car traffic. Traffic within cities flows more slowly from year to year. The cycling city of Copenhagen is, therefore, a great role model. Bicycle paths, two-wheeler parking - consulting firms like Copenhagenize explain how it could work. Urban planners also expect small electric vehicles such as electric bicycles, Segways, capsules, or three-wheeled stand-up mobiles to replace cars in the city in the coming decades.


16. Relationships and love 2030

Future thinker Matthias Horx discusses the crystal ball in his latest book: By 2030, "LoveWriting" will be very fashionable. Couples write letters to each other under the supervision of a love coach. And: by the middle of the century we will have realized that no algorithm can guarantee happiness in love. Dating agencies have moved into a kind of lottery system. Matthias Horx: “Future love. The future of love, sex and family ”, DVA


17. Teacher. Dr. Brinkmann 4.0

Surgeons are no longer "white-robed demigods" but data experts. “The operating room of the future is completely digital. The data streams train surgeons and surgical robots into a team that will be tailored to the patient with every movement, ”explained Stefanie Speidel, professor of translational surgical oncology at NCT Dresden, in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.


18. Through the desert

In Dubai, this year there will be drone taxis that fly autonomously; They were developed by the German company Volocopter: they transport a passenger at about 100 km / h in a radius of 50 kilometers. Only the ground control center can change course or force an early landing. Currently, a passenger (with luggage) can weigh a maximum of 100 kilograms, which makes transport difficult for overweight people. Countries like the United Arab Emirates are also setting trends when it comes to obesity. In no other region are there as many obese people as there. The municipal administration has already come to reward its citizens with one gram of gold for every kilo they lose.


19. Income without work

Do you receive 1500 dollars a month, regardless of whether you stay at home or go to work? The "unconditional basic income" went from a strange and exotic idea to serious business papers. There is already an official field test in Finland: 2000 unemployed receive 560 euros per month. The CDU, Greens, and FDP are planning a pilot project for the benefit of citizens in Schleswig-Holstein. The growing interest in the seemingly utopian concept has a reason: digitization is changing the world of work. Robots can replace humans in many areas. Experts assume that by 2025 the fine motor skills of machines will be so good that they will be able to keep up with humans.


20. More capable than robots

Californian neuroscientist Vivienne Ming has developed the “Muse” application, an “AI application” (Artificial Intelligence Application) that shows what the future of education could look like. The application sends daily tasks to parents and becomes a virtual assistant for parents. But the program itself is also constantly learning. So that the recommendations correspond to the child's development, everything is evaluated: the number of questions the child asks, conversations between parents and child, paintings painted by herself. With learning technology, Ming wants to ensure greater equality of opportunity, recognize potential at an early stage, and make children "robot-proof" - in other words, develop skills in them that robots cannot replace.
