We live in a world of disrupting technologies. Technology has the power to bring fiction to reality. The Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0, is responsible for this terrific metamorphosis in the way our workplaces experienced in the previous three revolutions. The future is unseen, yet our imaginations are busy working on new plans and promises.
Here's our list of technologies around the corner that will "possibly" change our lives forever over the coming era and beyond:
• Internet use goes 5 billion worldwide
• The 5G standard is released
• Texting by thinking is under development
• The PlayStation 5 is unveiled
• A cure for malaria
• Mars 2020 rover mission
• The first test flights of NASA's Quiet Supersonic Technology
• The first stem cell therapy for congestive heart failure
• Complex organ replacements grown from stem cells
• 30,000 drones are patrolling the skies of America
• The James Webb Space Telescope is launched
• The ExoMars rover touches down on Mars
• Launch of the Terrafugia TF-X flying car
• Wireless electricity is reaching critical mass
• Male birth control pills are entering the market
• The world's first artificial kidney
• The first Arabian mission to Mars
• India's first manned space flight
• Germany phases out nuclear energy
• The ITER experimental fusion reactor is switched on
• Water is becoming a weapon of war
• Nanotech clothes are growing rapidly in use
• The Dark Ages Radio Explorer (DARE) is launched

• Carsharing has exploded in popularity
• Lunar Mission One drills into the Moon's south pole
• The first probe to fly into the Sun's outer atmosphere
• Open-source, 3D printed clothes at near-zero cost
• Wind turbine drone inspection is a multi-billion dollar industry
• 3D-printed human organs
