Where do you see technology in ten years, in 2015? Here are my forecasts: 1. All types of cancer are curable if caught in the early or middle stages. 2. At least one cloned human being has been born. 3. The average world life expectancy is approximately 70, and is increasing at a rate faster than one year per year. 4. $1,000 of computer hardware buys you the hardware (but not the software) equivalent of a human brain. 5. There has been at least one major terrorist attack somewhere in the world using WMDs (nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons). 6. Many computer games (and sex industries) offer full-immersion virtual reality, including visual, audio, olefactory, and tactile enhancement, making a Matrix-like environment feasible. 7. Computers are cheap, plentiful, and ubiquitous. They are in walls, clothing, automobiles, household appliances, and just about everywhere else humans are. 8. New automobiles run primarily on hydrogen fuel-cells. 9. A vaccine has been developed for HIV, but international organizations such as the Red Cross are just beginning to make headway in eradicating the virus. 10. Cures for blindness, deafness, paraplegia, and most other physical handicaps are readily available.
