March 12, 2012–Theoretical physicist, author, and popularizer of science, Dr. Michio Kaku, talked about some of the startling changes we'll see in 10-30 years, based on technological advances. For instance, computer chips will cost a penny, and the Internet will be in your glasses or contact lenses. "You'll blink and basically you'll go online. And when you see your friends, you'll see their face, and their biography will emerge next to their face, and if they speak Chinese to you...your contact lens will translate into English," he detailed. We'll also have driverless cars, which he foresees will save thousands of lives.
We're already seeing amazing medical advances take shape, such as the ability to grow new organs from our cells. This means people won't die because of organ failure anymore, he declared. Further, we'll see MRI devices the size of a cell phone that will function like the tricorder depicted in Star Trek, as well as animations of doctors that can be called up at home to answer 99% of our medical questions, he continued. Superior cancer treatments using nanoparticles will replace chemotherapy, he added. Dr. Kaku also talked about parallel universes, and multiverses, and how experiments with the Hadron Collider may prove the validity of String Theory.
