    Without a doubt, we all have at some point come to think about what kind of tech we would want to see in the future and perhaps experience it.

    My Father is waiting for the day Virtual Reality is developed. The kind with the helmet/VR goggles though I doubt that tech will be available, at least not for many years but anything is possible.

    Me personally, I'm waiting on the day holograms are perfected to at least a level similar to a certain children's card game.

    What's yours?

    Either fully competant, communicative AI OR Mind Uploading, so I can replace this fragile human body with something made of titanium and live until I choose to die.

    1TB I-Touch, Ipods.

    3D televisions that don't need stupid glasses and can take ANY video and import it into 3D.

    Holographic televisions that lay flat like a coffee-table and project the image upward.

    Holodecks

    Masterpiece Transformers with even more detail, hydraulic piston arms, legs, LED's everywhere. Just superb detail all the way without any QC issues.
    And 1/43 scale versions of them as well with same level of detailing.

    More palm-sized highly-detailed RC scale helicopters.

    I could name a shit load.

    A device that can change gravity, which could make the heavest object feel like a feather in moving.
    The end of paper money and birth of digital credits that would be used all over Earth, lunar colonies, and colonies on Mars.
    Nasa and Air Force merge to create United States Star Force. Giving us orbital ship yards to build orbital battleships, starcraft carriers, and exploration ships.
    To be able to use DNA to clone a new liver, a new heart, a new limb for people that need it. To be able to clone blood when people need it. To be able to clone endanger animals or plants, instead of wasting money on yearly research.

    A means to circumvent traffic congestion, or better yet, do away with traffic congestion entirely.

    Clean, renewable energy capable of fulfilling most (if not all) power requirements.

    Hardware enabling widespread and cost-effective space exploration/colonization.

    Fully-interactive virtual environments catering to a variety of tastes.

    Advancements in health care capable of combating diseases (cancer, with any hope) and extending lifespans more effectively than current measures, including more effective pharmeceuticals and surgical techniques.

    Advancements in military technology capable of more effectively dealing with current and theoretical conflicts. This includes adaptive camo, more resilient armor, improved means of detection/early warning, better vehicular all-terrain capability and motherfucking handheld railguns.
