Allright. This was obviously written by an idiot with a closed mind.
1: Lab grown meat. If done right will not have any impurities or toxins that may be present in the original animal or its food. Furthermore, Vegans could now eat bacon if they stopped eating meat as a way of not wanting to have an animal hurt in the process.
2:Cuddlebot: Basically a robot tribble. Harmless. Will not transform. No matter how much radiation or learning programs you throw at it. Cheap alternative to a real pet.
3:Underwater breathing system: Bringing life to underwater cities? Not many people are going to take that up. And there won’t be a territory dispute as it would be owned by the rich.
4:Exoskeletons: In warfare, this is a step in the wrong direction. They are better off making their soldiers safer by building drones, or remote vehicles. Exoskeletons are a fun idea, but impractical.
5:Caffeine Spray:…….. Nothing to worry about. Claiming alcohol spray will be next…. seriously, your perfume has more alcohol than most of the strongest piss.
6:Cyberbug spy drone: The average person would not have access to any of these which are made to a useful standard. If they were used by governments or militaries, it would likely not affect anyones everyday life. Extremely limited range due to tiny battery
7:Tube Trains: THERE IS NOTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT THIS. Less land use due to a thinner track than regular trains. Less power consumed going from A to B if its a vacuum tube. Nothing negative about significantly shorter commute.
8:Synthetic Alcohol. Gives you the feeling of getting drunk without the hangover. Shouldn’t be scared of it at all, just don’t go crazy with it. You may still be able to throw up if you drink too much.
9:BCI machines. Controlling computers with your mind. Apparently if you get a virus it can infect your brain… Much like if you get a virus with your webcam on, there will be large amounts of green goop infecting your room. Input implies one way communication. Harmless.
10:X-Ray vision on phones. Pinging wifi signals, if done to an extreme measure beyond what ANY phone is capable of, may be able to determine if SOMETHING is moving in a room. As for x-ray by pinging wifi, it would require more power than most people have access to to get any reading other than “Yes, something is moving”. Privacy not an issue.
11:Speech Jammer: Doesn’t sound too difficult to make, but what is the actual point of this thing? its a directional microphone plugged up to a very directional loudspeaker with a delay from input to output.
12:Google street view car with GPS. Google maps may lead you off a cliff instead of left at cliff st? UTTER BULL SHIT! Cliffs are not marked. The maps in google maps, if implemented in an automated automobile, will treat the roads like rails. IT WILL NOT SEE THE CLIFF, OR THE RIVER. It will see an inaccessible space. It will not get you killed.
13:Winged rollercoaster: Makes you feel like you aren’t on the tracks… MOAR THRILL!
14:Edible packaging… Well, if you are absolutely starving and that empty box of cookies won’t hurt you…. whats the problem? Reduced landfill should totally scare us.
15:Anti Aging research. Overpopulation concerns? CONTROL REPRODUCTION!
15 Future technologies that should scare you. ONLY A FOOL would be concerned in the utter slightest about these.
