It is coming sooner than you think.
Back in 2006, scientists began working on a real life invisibility cloak. Professor George Eleftheriades and PhD student Michael Selvanayagam in The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering began working on an invisibility cloak, previous attempts were bulky, and only worked for small specific objects.
They used something called a “metascreen.”
“The metascreen cloak was made by attaching strips of 66 µm-thick copper tape to a 100 µm-thick, flexible polycarbonate film in a fishnet design,” Phys.org reported.
As of now, it will not work for rendering the actual object invisible; it will only mess with radio waves, but it can help the military hide from sonar.
Science is rapidly expanding where maybe in the future we will be able to resurrect the dinosaurs, or more realistic virtual reality simulators in everyday homes.
In fact, the Discover magazine December 2013 edition reports that “Our imagined gadgets are based on the logical evolution of technology that’s on the market now or coming soon, as well as conversations with developers and industry observers.”
Besides De-Extinction kits, and virtual reality, the magazine predicts enhanced shoes and pants, be able to grow Dino meat to eat in your home, and a perfect but imperfect home garden.
They are anticipated to start being available in the year 2033.
Futuretimeline.net is a website that has a timeline of the universe and humanity; it is based on part fact and part fiction.
“The timeline is based on detailed research that includes analysis of current trends, long-term environmental changes, advances in technology such as Moore’s Law, future medical breakthroughs, the evolving geopolitical landscape and more. Where possible, references have been provided to support the predictions,” it says on the home page.
They predict for the years 2015-2019; “Personal genome sequencing explodes into the mainstream, Virtual reality makes a comeback, 3D printing is a mainstream consumer product.”
So be prepared for the new age.
