  • My Predictions

    For Fun - Based on Years of Observations & Research - Predicted in 2015

    Wireless Power

    2020

    Wireless power will illuminate lights and charge your devices without, yes, wires. Using electromagnetic waves, our smaller, and later larger components, will no longer require cords plugged into the wall for power. It will start with phones and smaller everyday devices and later grow to lights, larger screens, and move onto the electric car.

    Drones

    2020

    You will be receiving small packages via drone at your house. Certainly by this year these devices will fill the sky with photographers, capturing impressive angles previously only caught by helicopter or plane. These quad-copters will eventually be utilized by delivering emergency goods like a heart defibrillators or rescue buoys to those in need. When the highways in the sky are regulated for drone traffic later in the 2020's, shipments will be a common occurrence.

    Digital Currency

    2025

    There will be a world currency – Bitcoin or like cryptocurrency. With the blockchain revolution about to take hold on a massive scale, which is the creation of secure, transferable assets via the internet, one key aspect will be the "privatization" of money. Both government agencies and private institutions can both create value using a 'tokenized' system based on blockchain technology. So you will eventually see a "Digital Dollar", or likely China, Russia or Iran doing this first. A company or a government agency will create a digital asset that can be sent around the world with easy in seconds, for low-no fee, and likely without using a bank - but could be far more traceable than cash, depending on how the currency is initiated.

    Autonomous Vehicles

    2025 - 2035

    Your car insurer will incentivize you to NOT drive your car as driverless cars dominate. Starting in the cities first, slower ride-shares will allow for the picking up and dropping off of people by cars without drivers. On the highways you will see larger trucks without drivers delivering goods across their respective continent.

     

    In 2035 it will be illegal for humans to drive. At this point, statistics will prove out that humans make far more errors when driving and on some roads, it will be illegal for humans to operate the cars without computer assistance. For those people that enjoy their driving, designated tracks and roads will be available - more for sport and leisure.

    Cable Companies

    2025

    Cable TV will not exist. As content becomes digitized through a multitude of outlets, control over how people receive this content will expand. Creative individuals will begin to create professional content to be consumed by anyone globally via mobile devices and eventually virtual reality headsets. The options for content will only expand and decentralize the traditional model as next generation access 5th Gen comes into play.

    Power Companies

    2025

    Massive power companies will be almost unnecessary – sub stations will reign. If you live in a sunnier than not area, your roof will be a cheap power source. Your home will get a batter to store the energy earned throughout the day. Increasingly roads will also supply cheaper power to cities and towns around the world.

    Law Firms

    2025

    Many of the Am Law top 200 law firms will no longer exist. Considerable consolidation of law firms will likely happen in the 2020's. As technology takes hold and some firms do not adjust by leveraging newer, cheaper, and more efficient means, their best practice areas will be picked up and the other portions might fade away.

    broken image

    Higher Education

    2030

    A significant number of traditional colleges will no longer exist. As online learning takes flight, having the multitude of ever dollar skyrocketing universities and colleges around the world will be seen as less attractive and valuable. The ability to bottle lectures by the best teachers online, at a fraction of the cost, because of scale, will dominate. It is only a matter of time when people elect to stop paying significant sums of money for the colleges of yesteryear.
