About

A handful of technologies have the potential to change not just an industry, but our entire way of life. We’ll take an in-depth look at some the most dramatic impending disruptions—and make no mistake, though the timing is uncertain, they are all coming.

  • CRISPR and the $1 Genome
  • Nearly Free Energy (e.g., cold fusion, advanced solar, battery breakthroughs)
  • A Google Glass That Works (augmented reality)

We’ll also consider some other inevitable trends, such as global warming; the end of privacy; fully autonomous cars, drones, and airplanes; precise and accurate weather forecasting; quantum computing; and seeding the planet with a quadrillion sensors
