10 World Changing Technologies That Could Change Your Life (Part I)


It’s almost impossible to predict the future with 100% accuracy. But that won’t stop me taking a stab at it. A big part of our new technology investment service will be working out which technologies have the best chance of succeeding and which will be a flash-in-the-pan.

What follows is just a sample of some of the technologies under development right now. Let me make this clear: I haven’t just made-up a lot of random futuristic ideas. The Revolutionary technologies you’ll read about below are projects being developed in laboratories and research centres round the world…

From hypersonic jet travel to near-space exploration and vacation, to medical and scientific breakthroughs that could rewrite the laws of physics.

It’s impossible to tell how many (if any) of these developments will succeed, but you should know that technology is rapidly changing the world. Even if none of these achieve commercial success, you can be sure that something just as incomprehensible and spectacular will. Read on for our take on the future…

  1. Sydney to London and Back Again, Just for a Two Hour Meeting?

    When Concorde had its farewell flight on the 26th November 2003 it was a sad day in the progression of high speed intercontinental travel. But not all hope was lost.

    The pinnacle of terrestrial travel has been London to Sydney in less than four hours. That required speeds in excess of Mach 5, commonly referred to as the point of Hypersonic Travel.

    But the problem is at that speed, current engine technology gets too hot. Air flow reaches temperatures in excess of 1,000 degrees Celsius. That would melt most materials used in typical aircraft, so it’s not a good idea for an engine.

    Hence hypersonic travel has been out of reach. But what’s the best way to reduce the temperature of something that’s hot? Cool it. Simple. A joint program between the European Space Agency and Reaction Engines is working on a plane capable of Mach 5 flight cruising speed.

    Reaction already has the engine technology. The ESA are working on a body design.

    Put the two together and the next step is a fully functioning prototype for hypersonic travel. London to Sydney in four hours may be closer to reality than you think.

  1. After China the Next Manufacturing Revolution Could be in Your Home

    There’s been a lot of talk about 3D printing for some time.

    Some say it’s great, some say it’s a fad. Let’s get one thing straight though. This technology is a part of the revolution in manufacturing that hasn’t happened since stonemasonry was established.

    3D printing isn’t just about making Yoda Bobble Heads for your Toyota Prius, or making a plastic gun to shuffle through airport security. It’s about taking this technology and putting the capability to make things into the hands of everybody.

    Here are a few things you probably didn’t know 3D printers have done:

    • Printed a custom fitted jawbone for an elderly lady that was otherwise going to have to eat through a straw for the rest of her life.
    • Printed a trachea splint for a newborn baby who otherwise would have suffocated to death.
    • Printed a pizza made from ingredients and protein abundantly found in nature.
    • Printed a car. Lightweight, aerodynamic and with the structural rigidity of racing cars.

    What this means is it’s not just some gimmick or fad. But a whole new approach to tackling problems to find innovative, creative solutions. It’s a change of attitudes towards the traditionally accepted methods of manufacturing.

  1. The Rechargeable Battery That Rewrites the Laws of Physics

    The biggest issue with batteries is they run out and take forever to recharge.

    The same goes for electric cars.

    The bigger problem for electric cars is that if it runs out while you’re on the road, there may not be somewhere to recharge it.

    But what if there was an electric car that generated energy from the invisible radiofrequency that is all around us? A car that charged its battery while driving, and never ran out of charge?

    Some might say that’s impossible. But Nikola Tesla didn’t think so when he made his Tesla Pierce-Arrow electric car. But that vanished; along with proof his invention in 1931 was even real.

    But another man today has made his own version of the free electric car. Ismael Aviso has created an electric motor and battery that has 133% efficiency. In simple terms, it makes more energy than it uses.

    It does this by capturing energy from radiofrequency that is invisible, abundant…and free.

    Aviso has the world’s first demonstrated free energy engine. Importantly, this isn’t a trick a fake or a scam. The Philippine Department of Energy has also verified Aviso’s invention as legitimate. Aviso has put his engine in a car, and in effect now has a car with unlimited range. No fuel, no recharging…ever.

We’ll be back with part two of this series tomorrow, including why your mind could be the most powerful computer of the future…
