Top five terrifying future technologies. Scary future scenarios.Five Scary Future Scenarios

Please do not get the impression that I am using the popular media trend of fear-mongering to try and rally you into a global fight against the evils of technology. I will probably take a nap after this.

It's just that I have a terrible habit of looking forward to a brighter side of the future. So to be fair, I offer you five future technologies that might wipe out humanity (or change it dramatically). Have a great day! Five Terrifying Future Technologies (Flash)

GMO Foods

Nanotubes have slipped into my sunscreen with the stealth of a cloned kitten. Why are products that use nano or bio technologies not clearly labeled?

Technology and society

Some of the smartest individuals I know, suddenly remember their kids have soccer practice when I mention the latest tech breakthrough.

They're Just Not That Into Us

Search for extraterrestrials, ET.

SETI projects have scanned the sky for over 40 years looking for an intelligent signal. Could our level of intelligence be unique in the universe? Intelligent life

Nanotechnology risks

Ready or not, here it comes. In the next 20 years, nanotechnology will touch the life of nearly every person on the planet. The potential benefits are mind boggling and brain enhancing. But like many of the great advancements in earth's history, it is not without risk. Here are some of the risks posed to society by nanotech.

Welcome! Future for All is my personal web site about future technology and its effect on society. Sometimes I write articles, but mainly I post hand-picked links to future technology articles, images and videos. I hope you like my site and find it useful.

My second video (still learning) is a parody about the Future of Privacy. How much private information are you willing to give up for a little savings or convenience?

Smart Homes

Smart Homes

My home is not very smart. It does not know when to start my coffee or how to clean the floor. It has difficulty distinguishing between a roaring grease fire and a steamy shower, which makes it a good thing it can't remember the number to call in an emergency. What can we expect to experience in the smart home of the future? Smart Home

Approaching the Singularity

the singularity

Surfing the web for The Singularity gives me a gnarly headache. No doubt a reaction to asking my brain to find ways of replacing itself. Both intriguing and frightening, my approach to the Singularity is to treat it like a dessert tray--the further it is away, the less I am infatuated by it. The Singularity

Human Like Robots

NBIC Convergence - Merging Technologies

NBIC is an acronym for Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information technology and Cognitive science. As these technologies race towards their own future with ever increasing speed, they merge to drive the new products, benefits and dangers predicted by forecasters, futurists and science fiction writers. I created the icons above to post with articles on this site, to signify which technologies are merging to create a current breakthrough or future scenario.
