I like to avoid thinking about my future as much as possible, but I couldn't look away from this video explaining what humans will be like in 1,000 years. It turns out science fiction writers predicted pretty well what our technology will look like, and that's why scientists are looking to predicting what we will look like in the future, too. Personally, I want to know what hair is going to look like in 1,000 years. Will it be totally cool to have green spikes, or will we regress to 1600s and have tall ass wigs? Get on THAT, science.
On a more bleak note, according to our friends at AsapSCIENCE, it seems as though future humanity will have to deal with a lot of issues left over from us royally screwing up with global warming. For instance, according to them, it will be a lot more advantageous to have darker skin since it protects us against dangerous UV rays. Good to know! Looks like my deathly pale butt will have to go outside a little more.
Which sci-fi movie will get the future right? Will we be a Matrix-like society plugged into the imaginary world controlled by machines, or will be more like Gattaca,where we streamline the human race without any regard for moral integrity? Seems like it will be a bit of both, with microscopic robots making us part machine and gene selection that will make perfect babies. Are you ready for the future?
Luckily or unluckily, this stuff isn't going to affect us. Instead, enjoy a glimpse into your great (x10) grandchildren's future.
1. So Far This Happened
In the last 1,000 years we have developed a tolerance for lactose, grown like 10 centimeters taller on average, and tend to live longer. This gives us some idea of how the next 1,000 years will go. (I.e., more pizza parties, living forever, being super tall while doing it.)
2. In The Future
It looks like we will have cooler living options in the future to go along with our high-tech travel options. Houses will be assembled out of tiny robots that will disassemble when we go to work to make room for other stuff — like that lemonade stand.
3. The Matrix
In 1,000 years, humans will be part machine. Meaning small robots or modified viruses will be able to fix medical issues we are born with like it's no big deal. Amazing.
