Overview

Future Tech: From Personal Robots to Motorized Monocycles by Charles Piddock

From machines with the capability of independent thought to cars that drive themselves, technology promises to change many aspects of our lives in the future. In the field of nanotechnology, new research focuses on microscopic robots and computers that can enter the bloodstream, or be woven into clothes. In the emerging science of biomimetics, scientists and engineers study nature to create new products. Understanding how insects' eyes work may result in the design of advanced computer screens. Exciting new things are happening every day, thanks to the researchers and scientists whose talents will make our future bright.
