Like all fanboys that watch Syfy films, I want to own the same ridiculous bits of technology that the film claims the future will have. Personally, I’m still waiting for the flying cars that the film, “The Fifth Element” promised us. Even without robots, flying cars, or clones, technology is still advancing very rapidly. So, what does the future hold for us in the upcoming years? Here are some mildly outrageous requests and slightly realistic predictions us fanboys have for the future.
Self-Building Robots: We basically already have robots operating in our society now. Giant computers, those robot puppies you buys for kids, and the self-checkout stations at Wal-Mart (which I don’t trust). I think it’s reasonable to presume that robots that build themselves without the need of humans to create them isn’t a far cry from reality.
Deeper Space Exploration: Come on, we’ve been to the moon and sent out space probes into the galaxy. So I think sending spaceships to Mars and beyond isn’t an unrealistic expectation of NASA. I mean, it’s no more unrealistic than Lindsay Lohan getting clean.
Multi-Pill: Who wouldn’t want a pill that basically combined all your medications or supplements? I mean, you couldn’t combine meds that counteracted each other but still, it’s a unique prospect for seniors who have to take three or more a day.
Automated Exams - This basically examines your body for diseases or things you’re at risk for. This I feel is important because it gives our doctors assistance. Doctors and surgeons are always in short supply so why not help them with, dare i say, the use of robots????!
Government Chips Installed inside your body - Please, they’re basically already doing this by tracking where you go on the internet and listening to phone calls.
There you have it, slightly realistic possibilities and these only scratch the surface of what could happen in the future. In the meantime, I’m gonna record a video and send it to my friend and then facetime him. I mean, that’s pretty nifty too, right?

Robots have been a part of science fiction for over one hundred years; however the fiction part is beginning to fade away. In today’s mainstream media we have seen the variety of roles that robots have played. Let’s look at The Jetsons, the infamous cartoon from the ‘60s about a family who lived in the year 2062 in a futuristic utopia. Or Wall-E the cute talking robot who’s designed to collect all of abandoned Earth’s waste. So why am I talking about robots? Well it seems as though robots are increasingly being designed to perform more human-like tasks.
Let’s look at Pepper, the emotional robot who has the ability to read and respond to its users mood. Definitely a step up from one of those mood rings I used to have when I was a kid! The Japanese robot essentially tries to make its users happy for just $2,000.00. If that doesn’t make you want one, I don’t know what will! Oh maybe this too, Pepper can speak up to 17 different languages.
As I was researching information on new robots, I came across PackBot, a series of military robots made by iRobot. To be honest I didn’t think things like this actually existed, but to my surprise they are real! These robots are designed to identify explosives as well as to locate them. I also learned that the U.S. military is currently using more than two-thousand of PackBots in both Iraq and Afghanistan with more being built.
Robots do serve in some very beneficial ways; however, if we look at the robots who can potentially replace fast-food workers not so much. Okay, yeah it’s kinda cool to see robots slice cheese, but to what extent will they completely replace people. In fact, University of Oxford researchers predicted that there is a 92% chance that fast-food preparation and serving will all be automated in the coming decades. That’s a little scary to think about.
So, it’s up to you decide whether or not robots are or could be, beneficial or harmful. Resultly’s former mascot is pretty cute though.
Tired of searching for products you can’t find? Or especially when you just purchased a watch but later find out you could’ve bought it for less at a different store? We thought so.
Frank Fontana, on behalf of WGN 720, interviewed Resultly’s creator IIya Beyrak about the shopping app and why it’s the answer to the endless searching you’re forced to endure when finding a product.
