What's going to be the next big thing?

Asked by bob_ (19685points) July 5th, 2010

I was watching CNN the other day, and some dude was talking about how we will one day have chips installed, to help us deal with diseases and whatnot (needless to say, I was all “whoa, that’d be big”). Now, I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon (‘cause I’m still waiting for my flying car), but it got me thinking, what’s going to be the next big thing? That? Something to do with energy? With the weather? With our food? What do you think?

Leg warmers are going to come back with a vengence! They might even be battery powered and equipped with a small solar engine to help propel the wearer forward!

Another Star Trek series, but with the original cast. Plus holograms of those who’ve passed. R.I.P

Rides to outer space… or
Intentional communities… or
Taking responsibility for the things we don’t or wish we didn’t know about.

But probably, whatever gets targeted toward gullible consumers who believe the marketing that it will make their lives easier, better, more important, popular, accepted, etc.

I heard about those chips years ago, otherwise known as nanotechnology inserted within the bloodstream that was meant to help combat things like cancers.

Nonetheless, I say 3-D televisions. Let’s just hope it looks better than Friday the Thirteenth Part III. If we’re all gonna die from broken promises, let’s do it in style.

@Symbeline Interactive 3D, like holosuites, would rock! Battles and orgies without consequences. ^_^
