    Inventions of the decades

    Discussion in 'Science Fiction' started by Maximum7, Oct 13, 2017 at 3:17 AM.

    The invention of the 2000's (2000-2010) is in my opinion the iPhone

    For the 2020's I believe it will be the 3D printer

    What could be the invention of the
    2030's
    2040's
    2050's
    2060's
    2070's
    2080's
    2090's
    2100's?

    One invention for each decade. I'm trying to generate creative sci-fi ideas because I'm running out of them. Thanks!!!

    2020s or 30s I'd say might be an amped-up Fitbit, something that's on (or in) you constantly and monitors a wide range of health and fitness indicators.

    That is, unless we have WWIII and end up looking to reinvent knapped flint or something similar :)

    But yeah, I don't see 3d printers becoming popular as there's not much demand/use for them publicly beside novelty. And I'd change the invention of 2000-2020 to the smartphones in general. I'd lean towards 2030s being augmentation of the body, either the popularisation of CRISPR or bionic prosthetics.

    How about a dust-buster or similar mini-vacuum that works for more than a year? That would be groovy.

    Not til about 2200, we're engineers, not miracle workers.
