The official "Fuck, this looks awesome!" technology thread * 1
    #11379076 - 11/03/09 08:38 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Use this thread to post pictures and articles about awesome new advances in technology, particularly those things which have a "sci-fi" feel to them.  I'll start:


The Japanese build a "Aliens" era load lifter arm



Quote:

"The prime use for the arm will be in disaster zones, where wheeled vehicles are unable to operate but heavy weights need to be moved," Shirogauchi said.

Come on guys, lets get this thread going!






the DATA TRAVELER 300 thumb drive by Kingston.

A thumb drive of 256 GIGABYTE. Can you imagine that? An USB stick the size of a cigarette lighter holding as much data as 56 DVD's.. That could be a full CD of unique mp3's (11 hours) each day, or a full length .avi movie each day, for a year.


:awebig:


It has compatibility for just about ever OS you can throw at it along with data transfers of 20MB/sec read and 10MB/sec write. The price is a bummer, $900, but this will drop dramatically in the coming few years. The technology is here, now!

how about 128 gig micro sd!

even my little 2 gig micro sd still amazes me with the small size, but 128 gig? awesome!

I have a 4gb micro, I really don't use my phone for data or media that much so i dont use it that much, but it's still amazing.

Although it's kind of useless, this is pretty amazing

Its always interesting to see how far off our predictions are.  I always enjoy the popular science magazine articles from decades ago.

It's still a hella cool website and I can see a vast majority of the predictions fulfilling themselves.

The iPhone still amazes me. Even the first generation, in my opinion was a huge technological advancement. It is literally a pocket computer in a sense. I'm fully aware that there was pocket computers before it but still, it's effng amazing. You can play snes, sega genesis, and even playstation ffs. After that you can check all your socail networking sites, and even post on the Shroomery :laugh:

QFT...now only if AT&T would get off their ass and put out an android phone, i can't wait much longer, i really need soemthing to start learning on for this, mobile is the future IMO.  I guess i could get a G1 from t-mobile and swap out sim cards...

peace

i bought a g1 when it first came out and returned it a week later. Android is awesome. the hardware on the g1 sucks.

im sure there was a conversation between apple and at&t about not doing an android phone because it would compete with the iphone. now it could be that at&t told them to shove it and thats where the verizon iphone rumors are coming from. seems like something apple would do..

lol, i realize that. I just think it's cool to have a 'best case scenario' played out.  As I read through that site, I almost laughed at some of the 'predictions'.  Still, the next 100-150 years predicted could be somewhat in the right direction, as we know a lot more about computer processing progression and development than we did in the 80's and before that.  As demonstrated on the site, a lot of the 'seed' technologies are available today, they just need to be developed a lot further. ie; direct brain to computer interaction, and so forth.

Sometimes, i wish i could have been born 50 years into the future.  :w0ahhhhmahnnn:

IMO iPhone is great. Not a biggie to me about the pic txt, there's an app for it and I got video recording 2 weeks after release with jailbreaking ;|
Haven't messed around with any of the new touch phones yet, but they all look just like the iPhone heh.

My intuition (a great scientific instrument :awesome:) tells me trememdously important events will unfold in the coming few years that will overturn most of those predictions.

I don't think catastrophic ones per se, more like findings that will open up completely new areas of research and development. Stuff we never thought would be possible, dreams never before dreamed now within reach.

These are exciting times.
