I think that 20 years from now computer video games and such will be
obsolete.  The new form of entertainment will be holographic cubes in which
interaction with the game can be had.  Not as sophisticated as the holodeck
of StarTrek fame but in a similar fashion.  Computers will speak to you
everywhere...the gas station...would you like a receipt sir...and TV will not
even exist in the fashion it does today.  PC's will be obsolete.  Everything will be computerized to the point that computers won't even be necessary.
All of this will arise out of technologies created as we venture toward Mars.

Aliens will still be a myth. alien.gif

The advances we've made over the last 100 years have been massive, however in the last 20 years we have progressed very little, think back to 1884 and ask yourself, barring nicer looking cars, the evcolution from Itari's to PS2s, mass connection to the Internet, modern scientific achievements such as cloning sheep we're actually changed very little. Most advances come actually through arms races or wars (computers, mass production techniques), which simply do not happen on a large enough scale now.

In 20 years I think we'll see some great advances, particularly with any luck in medicine and pollution control, however flying cars, space ships etc simply are to much of an advance to make in that length. Now if you talk 100 years, then I'd agree. As for mutants... evolutionary changes would take millions of years, nowhere in our DNA structure at the moment is there place for phazing through walls, controlling metal, lazer eyes etc etc, mutants such as those are biologically imposible.

I predict World War 3, not countrys against countrys but public verus governments. Nuclear war is possible, as well as various biological outbreaks. Technology will probably stay the same or go backwards a bit if the war happens. Perhaps a new understanding between us human beings instead of beating the crap out of each other......

Not-a-chance, technology always advances with war as we find better methods to kill each other.

Not to mention mash production, super glue, computers, most varieties of vehicle, and probably thousands of items you use every day and don't even think about huh.gif

I agree...in 20 years we're unlikely to see any major changes. It's not impossible that there will be some scientific breakthrough that alters our culture vastly, but I doubt it; not without the benefit of an arms race of some other driving force.

Genetically we won't change at all, who's kidding who? tongue.gif I think, due to our medical technology and culture keeping people with illnesses or disabilities alive to have children, rather than dying as they would in nature, we've cut out our evolution altogether...I think we'll probably still be like we are genetically for a loooong time to come tongue.gif

In the way, the supernatural is what's behind the curtain. Normally, you only need to see what's happening in stage. That's how reality works. If you don't know then it's for the best. Actually, learning about the supernatural only increases the number of things you don't know.

I find the forecast of future technology to be great...funny I enjoy watching movies, old movies from the late 70s, all of the 1980s and all of 1990s to see what people's opinion of the future is like. Some are on the ball and some were not.

Well there is no flying air cars in the future not yet anyways. I see the human race to be normal as usual.

Interesting.  I agree with most of you in the fact, that we probably won't change.  Sure there will be a few advances here and there.  But probably nothing that would change the world.  I also agree with most of the folks that voted I was a Freak  tongue.gif

I went to a car show this weekend, and it was very interesting to see Automakers, pushing the idea, of Hydrogen Fuel and Electric vehicles.  I personally believe, that with the way gas prices are out of control, GAS powered vehicles will become classics.  While, most folks would be driving new generation cars. Since gas may be come unaffordable.  But that's just my two cents.
