What if I told you that in a little over

seven decades our world would be

transformed by groundbreaking

Technologies more radical than your

wildest dreams imagine a future where

science fiction becomes a reality where

extraordinary advancements redefine the

boundaries of what’s possible in this

video we look at the 10 technologies

that will rule the world in 2100 from

artificial humans Nanobots that

transport you to another reality and

mind uploading Tech to telepathic

communication geoengineering and more

prepare for the wildest Technologies of

the future and what do all these mean

for us watch to the end to find out

before we get started be sure to

subscribe so you don’t miss out on the

latest Cutting Edge technology number

one artificial life forms as if the

current state of artificial intelligence

is not scary by 2100 scientists will be

designing and building brand new

organisms from scratch and we’re talking

about everything from Tiny synthetic

bacteria to humans that resemble the

replicants in Blade Runner they’re

calling this field artificial life or a

life for short and it’s all about using

computers and other synthetic tools to

recreate biological processes believe it

or not the quest to create synthetic

life’s already underway a while back

researchers from synthetic genomics and

the J Craig Venter Institute

accomplished something remarkable they

created an artificial bacterial genome

that’s even smaller than anything found

in nature with a mere 473 genes this

breakthrough is opening up new

possibilities for biologists to delve

into the fundamental functions of life

and understanding the essential genes

within cells by using these building

block cells scientists could potentially

construct organisms with abilities that

don’t exist in nature imagine bacteria

that can devour plastic and toxic waste

or microorganisms that can act as

medicine inside our bodies yes it’s that

mind-boggling and that’s not all another

fascinating project led by George Church

from Harvard Medical School aims to

create a synthetic human genome from

scratch the researchers behind it aren’t

stopping until they figure out how to

power cells using synthetic human DNA

number two molecular assemblers imagine

craving some tender juicy delicious ribs

but you know you don’t have some in the

house your options are to either dash

out to the store or order in right in

the future however there could be a

third interesting option you could make

it yourself using a simple machine from

seemingly nothing yes this is something

that’s actually been proposed and maybe

in the works as we speak thanks to

something known as a molecular assembler

as described by K Eric Drexler a

molecular engineer who studies the

potential of molecular nanotechnology a

molecular assemblers a proposed device

that can guide chemical reactions by

positioning reactive molecules with

atomic Precision to put it simply a

molecular assembler will be able to

receive instructions from you the user

and then bring together specific

molecules that will react and mesh

together to form whatever you want

whether it’s a hot cup of tea as seen in

Star Trek or a tasty plate of food

basically it’s like a 3D printer but a

hundred times more advanced so whatever

cool thing you think a 3D printer can do

a molecular assembler can do better and

bigger according to Drexler the champion

of this idea biological assemblers which

replicate bacteria trees and even people

already exist just not as advanced while

this technology is almost too magical to

believe if successful could help

Humanity build things that are presently

considered too hard or impossible to

make and of course anything your heart

desires including those juicy ribs

number three frame linked virtual

reality so you might know about wearable

VR devices like Oculus Rift and more

recently the hyped Apple Vision Pro

right while as much as they’re cool and

all no matter how advanced they get they

still can’t fully replicate the feeling

of being in a different reality but you

know what by 2100 we could be telling a

different story imagine this instead of

relying on external gadgets you can

connect virtual reality experiences to

your brains directly yup you heard it

right and exactly how will that work

well by simply tapping into the power of

our brains see our brains are amazing

machines processing all the sensory

information we encounter daily from the

aroma of your favorite tacos to the

vibrant glow of your computer screen

it’s all routed to your brain now

futurist Ray Kurzweil the author of The

singularities near has some intriguing

thoughts on how this brain linked VR

could become a reality He suggests that

Nanobots could be the key as these tiny

Bots will be inserted inside our bodies

and brains keeping us healthy and

enabling a fully immersive VR experience

from within our nervous system that

could even facilitate direct brain to

brain communication over the internet

and enhance human intelligence now

before you dispel this is fantasy hear

this we’re already making significant

advancements in breaching the

blood-brain barrier and developing

microscopic machines that can travel

through our bodies moreover we’re

actively mapping the intricate details

of the brain including the areas

responsible for processing sensory

information that said let’s say answer

the important question here how would

this brain linked VR work well just

picture this once the Nanobots are

implemented in your brain they’ll locate

your brain’s various sensory inputs and

temporarily shut them down this means

the electrical signals collected by a

retina ear and other sensory organs

would be disrupted you’d be completely

unaware of your actual surroundings it’s

like being in a sensory deprivation

chamber but here’s the mind-blowing part

the Nanobots fueled by Wireless

transmission would then provide

artificial signals to the brain’s

cortical regions essentially replacing

the missing sensory inputs and voila

you’d find yourself in a new world

experiencing it as if you’d been

transported to another reality number

four telepathy the idea of communicating

with people without speaking in other

words mind to mind is both exciting and

scary yes you probably would enjoy

communicating without talking but on the

other side of the sphere our minds are

our private sanctuaries and thoughts can

be brutally honest but whatever side of

the opinion poll you’re on Direct mind

to mind communication Tech technology

seems closer to reality than ever before

it might actually be realized by 2100 in

fact in 2014 some researchers were able

to show Brain to brain interaction

between two people hundreds of miles

apart on top of this another group of

researchers tried transmitting brain

signals via the Internet to control

another person’s hand gestures and it

worked a breakthrough in this technology

if realized will bring humans closer

together and eventually there will be

nothing like an individual mind instead

we’ll have a collective Consciousness

number five utility fog picture this a

swarm of tiny Nanobots that can

transform into any object and change

their shape on the go well that there’s

a utility fog and the tiny Nanobots are

what we call foglets so J stores Hall

devised this idea one fine day while

thinking about futuristic seat belts

instead of regular straps and airbags he

envisioned an intelligent cloud of

interconnected fog lights like beautiful

snowflakes that could adapt to the

movements of anything they encounter

including the passengers inside cars

each fogla is a mere 10 microns across

about the size of a human cell they have

a tiny onboard computer to control their

actions but an artificially intelligent

system externally controls them on top

of that they boast a dozen telescopic

arms that can extend outward forming a

dodecahedron shape when two foglets

connect they create a circuit enabling

power distribution and communication

within the network rather than floating

these foglets arrange themselves into a

lattice structure called an octet truss

when they link hands in all 12

directions sure that sounds like much at

the moment but once you wrap your head

around how they work it becomes easier

to understand see a utility fog some

sort of programmable matter in action it

can move around envelop objects or even

people and transport them the best part

utility fogs could be used to construct

an entire virtual world around you

number six climate engineering the

oceans are warmer and more acidic than

they’ve ever been while some countries

are experiencing heavier and more

frequent rainfall others are getting

drier and hotter the sea levels rising

at an alarming rate as for CO2 levels

they’re the highest in 650 000 years

what are we saying climate change is

happening and fast if we don’t stop it

Humanity’s likely doomed but there could

be a solution in the offing climate

Engineering also known as geoengineering

this Niche refers to a set of emerging

technologies that could help manipulate

the environment and offset some of the

severe impacts of climate change one

proposed geoengineering idea is cirrus

cloud seeding in the simplest terms this

would involve changing the formation of

cirrus clouds the light feathery hair

like clouds you see in the sky so that

long wave radiation from the earth

escapes to space slowing down global

warming other geoengineering hacks we

could see soon include putting up a

giant reflector in space spreading

sulfuric acid droplets in the

stratosphere using Jets and fertilize

using the ocean with special carbon

sucking blooms among others so why is G

us geoengineering scary if scientists

get it wrong things can go south

frightenly fast and we could wreck our

planet irreversibly number seven

space-based solar power as we grapple

with the challenges of climate change

and strive to shift to more sustainable

energy sources it sometimes feels like

our energy demands are just too much to

handle but you know what space-based

solar power might just be the game

changer we need and believe it or not

the concept of space-based solar power

has been around for almost six decades

see back in the 1960s Peter Glazer

imagined a world where satellites in

space could capture solar energy and

beam it down to earth using microwaves

since then various ideas and plans have

emerged but Japan’s been leading the

charge with its sbsp system

so how does it work well the Japanese

plan involves a constellation of

satellites orbiting around 22 400 miles

above the equator that will use laser

beams to transmit the captured solar

energy back to Earth each satellite

would Target a receiving station on the

ground which would be about 1.8 miles

wide and get this it would generate a

whopping gigawatt of electricity enough

to power around half a million homes of

course safety is a top priority that’s

why the receiving stations would be far

away from densely populated areas think

deserts are isolated Islands a spot

where human habitation is minimal number

eight mind uploading imagine a future

where people can choose to exist purely

in a digital realm free from the

constraints of biology it’s called Mind

uploading and it’s all about making an

exact copy of a biological brain and

painstaking detail we’re talking

molecular level Precision capturing

everything from memories to personality

quirks now futurists are still figuring

out the nitty-gritty of how mind

uploading will actually work but we have

an idea for one they could try

destructive copying where a brain is

sliced up to record its state and

memories alternatively a powerful brain

scanner could capture a snapshot of the

brain which would then be translated

into a functioning mind within a

computer but to function normally the

uploaded person would need a virtual

body and environment number nine weather

control granted controlling the weather

completely by the end of the century may

be a bit of a stretch but we’re

certainly making strides in that

direction we’re already tinkering with

clouds to stimulate rainfall and

California has been at it for almost

half a century that’s right and even

during the 2008 Summer Olympics in

Beijing Chinese authorities fired

Rockets into the clouds to bring rain

before it hit the city looking ahead

Weather Engineers have some fascinating

ideas up their sleeves picture this

massive wall-like structures that could

prevent destructive tornadoes from

forming or a series of offshore turbines

strong enough to harness the energy of

hurricanes and weaken their impact you

get the idea in fact a study in 2014

showed that a wind farm with thousands

of turbines could significantly reduce

Peak winds and Storm surges effectively

lowering A hurricane’s power but here’s

where it gets really intriguing we might

actually eventually create a weather

machine capable of programming the

atmosphere itself and one concept

involves a global cloud of transparent

balloons floating in the stratosphere

these balloons would have mirrors GPS

for monitoring actuators for orientation

control and small computers inside them

lifted by hydrogen they would hover

about 20 miles above the Earth’s surface

as the mirror is facing away from the

earth reflex sunlight back into space

and just to add they’ll be guided by

artificial intelligence pretty much like

some sort of programmable greenhouse gas

system to influence weather patterns

worldwide and transform marginal areas

into habitable regions number 10 fusion

power recently a group of physicists in

Germany received a remarkable feat in

the pursuit of nuclear fusion a powerful

promising form of energy basically they

used a powerful microwave pulse to heat

low density hydrogen plasma to an

astonishing 80 million degrees now

before I get too excited the experiment

didn’t produce any usable energy and it

lasted a mere quarter of a second but it

was a crucial step forward in our quest

to harness the immense potential of

nuclear fusion unlike nuclear fission

where atoms are split into smaller parts

nuclear fusion involves emerging two

lighter nuclei to create a single

heavier nucleus this resulted in an

enormous amount of energy if harnessed

fusion power could produce clean and

abundant energy for everyone a lot more

than what we currently generate from

nuclear reactors and fossil fuels but

there’s a catch scientists are yet to

find a foolproof solution to controlling

the extreme conditions generated by a

fusion which are comparable to the sun’s

surface you see Fusion plasmas are

incredibly unruly and difficult to

confine the sun holds its plasma thanks

to its immense gravitational pull but

doing the same without that much gravity

is a whole other Story the slightest

mistake and its boom all in all it’s

fascinating to think about how these

technologies will reshape our world in

less than 100 years the thing is is it’s

hard to predict precisely how they’ll

become a reality or which we’ll precede

the other we might see brain linked VR

mind uploading and AI merging to create

a computer-based civilization with real

people emulated brains and artificial

intelligence and when it comes to

climate engineering who knows how

weather control systems and engineered

nanoparticles might join forces the

truth is the more we try to predict the

future the more uncertain it becomes

it’s a reminder that the possibilities

are endless and we can’t always foresee

what lies ahead so which of these

Technologies do you see coming into

fruition in our generation drop a
