How Do You See the World in 10 Years?

Recommended Posts

Sergi

Ok by going off events, trends and the overall Earth in 2009, how do you think the world will be by the year 2019? Do you think we'd entered into WW III? Do you think alien mysteries will have been solved? Do you think 2012 will have happened? Do you think the Revalations will have occured as most religious people will tell you "the end is nigh"? What trends do you think will be happening? Do you think Digital Distribution will be the norm?

 

Personally I think by 2019 the Earth will pretty much be the same but will as many advancements as 1999-2009. I don't think a major global war will have happened. I really don't think anything on 12/12/2012 will have occured. I don't think the Revalations will have happened. My biggest thing is I still don't think digital distribution will have become the norm. It may become more mainstream but it won't take away traditional means of purchasing things. Most people enjoy getting their things the traditional way and by that getting up and going somewhere to get stuff. Things like Ebay and Netflix have all been revolutionary but I also think they somewhat are double bladed swords. Because of things like that say some one who doesn't get out the house as it is uses Ebay to purchase things, Netflix to order movies and uses the internet to order food then they'll have no reason to ever leave the house. O pray people don't get that lazy because then we'll just have a Wall-E society where we rely on technology for everything and become overweight fatties lol.

I don't think it will be much different to now. We will probably be playing the PS4 and be driving slightly more advanced cars. One thing we may not have in abundance anymore, will be petrol, we will instead probably be driving Hydrogen fueled cars and keeping petrol cars for special occasions (like Motor Racing). Obviously, there will be new developments in major cities, for example, New York will have the new World Trade Center. There might be more computer-controlled systems but i don't think anyone will let computers run our lives. Also, a big possibility is that we will have robots, i'm guessing to use for manual labour such as lifting heavy objects.

 

...and of couse, we will be discussing GTA VII... assuming GTA doesn't come to an end in the next few years.

Well if the rapture, astriods or nukes don't kill us in the next ten years I think the delevopment speed will start to double towards the end of the decade ( i.e 10 years worth of delvopment in 5).

 

By 2019 crime should be almost gone in America and Eupore if we reform our prisons. ( we are good at arresting people now but not at keeping them in jail).

 

By 2019 Web 4.0 should be out. Who the F*** knows what that's going to be. We are on Web 2.0 right now.

 

The game consoles should be in all digital and I suspect the PS4, Xbox 720 and Wii whatever will probably all be motion sensing with controller option for 720 and 4. Also we should be on GTA 5 ( Maybe it will be a whole continent?). I think also almost every video game will be open world because there will no longer be a tech excuse for letting the player not explore and do things. On the handheld front I can picture Nintendo still doing motion tech for there handheld with the system being as powerful as a Mirocsoft Xbox. By then xbox would have probably released a handheld about on par with a 360 today and IDk about the PSP3.

 

Most diesase are cured or have treatments and diabetes and such are things of the past thanks to stem cell reaseach. Also drugs that help your IQ and better steriods. Re growing limbs is becoming more common too.

 

Robots do all the manual labor, chores, heavy task and cleaning.

 

Cell Phones are as powerful as the computer your typing on today and can do everything and more your computer can. Also Notebooks drop Laptop sales in the early 10's.

 

Screens are flexable, bendable, waterproof and can fit in your pocket.

 

Sun glasses with Hud and full display.

 

Mind controlled computers with a type of hat.

 

LCD contacts.

 

Latino power movement in America and possible Gay one if that issue isn't solved.

 

Smarter A.I everywhere.

 

Yea could think of more but that's all I can for now.

I think that we will have a better array for eco-technology and that we will be able to retard the Global Warming effect a little. Well, at least I hope so.

As long as they have better "rules" for robots lol. We've all seen how those rules are broken and how A.I. always seems to turn sentient and turn on humans.

 

Also how do you guys think say CGI and video game graphcis will be? I have an issue of EGM from 2007 that was called Gaming the Next 20 Years and it was a very good issue. They interviewed numerous people in the game industry on how it will be by 2027 and it was quite informitive. What was the best part on graphics. They said how graphics will continue to get better but they are long ways off from making them so real that you can't tell the difference.

I can't see the world changing that much in the next ten years. Is it really that different today than it was in 1999? We'll just have smaller computers, faster processors, tighter wallets and more expensive fuel.

Well I've always imagined Earth making contact with aliens who live on one of the other planets in the solar system by 2012, and by 2019 we and the aliens form some kind of United Sol Empire or something along the lines of that.

ha! +1, my friend.

 

 

 

 

in all honesty, nothing will really have changed. i mean, the world isn't very different in 1999 than it is now. it's really just the same old bullsh*t.

 

a better question would be to see how the world will be in the following 30-50 years. i have doubts that there will be any sort of "world war III" but i do think that some sh*t will go down that will shake the global community to its core.

 

once the polar ice caps fully get on hot ice cream mode, and the western and eastern seaboards of the united states are flooded, destroying untold amounts of property and business, millions of citizens fleeing to the interior states, then the sh*t will get messily interesting.

 

also, the global climate will completely cripple other third world island nations that will be most vulernable to mother nature's wrath.

 

i have no doubt that we're still on this path towards an environmental reckoning. sure, the oil is going to dry up, and we may drum up a little more middle east theater, but it will be nothing compared to the global cataclysm that is on deck during the next several decades.

I think in 10 years the Video game industry will be almost all DLC with the future consoles having no disc drives like the PSP Go! and the iPod Touch, handheld devices like phones, mp3, game systems will have about as much power as an average laptop

TV will be Super Hi-Def(slated to come out 2015 wikipedia told me)I think the American Auto Industry will have virtually collapsed and european and japanese automakers will take charge, the Global War on Terror will end but there will be a short peace time as the Korean War will resume. the American economy will bounce back and a period of booming success will follow around the world with China and Russia emerging as world superpowers along with America

It would be pretty cool to see all of this in 2019:

http://blog.seattlepi.com/microsoft/archiv....asp?source=rss

I doubt it'll all happen though.

Yes, that is way too optimistic.

 

In reality, due to the population crisis we will most likely be in a period of mass chaos. Mark my words, it WILL happen. Mankind's only hope is to emerge with order from this devastation.

to some extent, yes. a population running unchecked will eventually cripple nations ill-equipped to deal with the explosion. for example, look at india. an already too-small land mass touting one of the globe's most populst citizenship. at the current rate, india is going to get entirely too big for it's britches, and the excess will spill over in neighboring nations (see: nepal, afganistan, china), and dollars to doughnuts, there's going to be more than a few starving refugees.

 

of course, the united states, the un, et al. will try and establish a humanitarian effort, but they're going to have enough problems of their own.

-I'll be trying to collect computers off eBay that have quad core processors and 4gb RAM

-Buildings and stuff'll largely be the same

-I'll be grumbling because my PC doesn't have 16 cores and 32gb of RAM

-I'll still be using this ancient CD holder of mine (as long as 2019's media is still on discs, be it CD, DVD, Blu-ray or otherwise).

-200tb hard drives will be the norm, at minimum

Hopefully, in ten years you can attain a sense of reality. I on the other hand, will continue my daily ritual of logging on to GTAF and sharing a lovely bit of my thoughts.

 

 

 

 

In ten years problems will steadily rise, hand in hand with an equally large amount of solutions. History is constantly repeating itself, whether you like it or not, so hit the books and prepare yourself.

Same as it is now, except the little things.

 

TVs will be bigger and even more HD. Computers will be smaller and faster. And of course gas prices will be three times as high as they are now.

I suppose nothing much can change over 10 years. Im sure the Earth will have it's share of good and bad moments. I'd expect major countries to have new advancements in technology to help our enviroment such as mass alternative energy sources, new ways to recycle, energy efficent products. I wonder what the issues of terrorism and the economy will be like by then...
