If you have babies or
preschool-aged kids at home, it's probably weird to imagine the day they'll go
off the college. Do you want to know
whats even more weird?
The world that our kids will consider normal as college students will be almost unrecognizable to us. Technology is growing at an exponential rate, and here are some of the most
popular predictions by scientists and futurists about what our world will look like in the year 2030.
Computers: The computers we use today will be comically huge and simple to our kids when they're in college. There will be tiny unseen computers embedded in things in clothing, products, contact lenses, and all throughout our homes. And computer keyboards will likely be a thing of the past, with other less
clunky ways to interact with our computers being the norm, possibly even connecting
directly to our brains.
Medicine: By the time our babies are in college, there may be a vaccine to prevent AIDS. Nanotechnology will have completely changed basic medical treatments because we'll be able to intervene with the effects of disease at the sub-cellular level. People will be aging slower because anti-aging medicine will advance by leaps and bounds in the coming years. Medicine will be personalized to best compliment individuals
based on their DNA. Exoskeletons will become an option for increased mobility and
support for the elderly. The rich elderly will be able to afford these and
have access before the middle and lower class.
