We all know passwords are far from fool-proof. Even other methods like fingerprint and facial recognition can be broken. However, researchers have started studying “brain prints.” The idea behind it is that all our brainwaves are unique and can be used as a type of password. In the future, you’ll likely never use a password again. Instead, you’ll use your brain print.


Our interactions will be heavily augmented.

How we interact and view the world has already changed with smartphone cameras and games like Pokemon Go. However, in the future, contact lenses will have computers in them, allowing you to get a whole host of information from what you see around you. Your interactions with restaurants, movie theaters, and even people, will drastically change, providing you with personalized messages and information.


We'll have far better treatments for cancer.

Cancer research has come a long way, but we’re nowhere near the ability to treat it effectively. In the future, however, we’ll either be able to cure it completely or have such effective methods of treating it that it won’t be as big of an issue as it once was. They’re already finding a large amount of techniques to cure it with treatments like immunotherapy.


Batteries will last a long time.

Let’s face it, the battery technology we have today is awful. Our battery technology is not keeping up with computing technology. Fortunately, researchers are already discovering exciting new ways to keep batteries charged longer. The days of charging your phone two times a day will likely be long gone.


Everything will be remembered in the cloud.

Already we’re seeing cloud computing becoming commonplace in our everyday lives. However, as it becomes more and more common, it’ll be the only place we store computer memory. Probably one day, that’s where we’ll store our own human memories as well.
