Well, people, it looks like we live in the future now.
 
Being always being a bit of a futurist, I have always imagined what would happen. Here are some of my predictions.
 
In the future, they'll soon create an app that allows for you to text or phone anyone you want from anywhere on Earth for cheap. Americans will just use it to text their siblings from across the room. This app will be named Tesseract.
 
In the future, artists and rappers will be getting compensation for their work under one condition: the rappers and singers will have to freestyle their entire show. This will not catch on with pop stars, of course, but the pressure will be on for rappers to freestyle anything that is on their minds over beats they have NEVER rapped over, as a means of creating a spontaneous show. This idea will be thumbed up, since people complain that rap concerts are merely artists rapping. There is no show, nothing theatric, nothing surprising. So, freestyling your entire tour will inject a bit of show into one's act.
 
In the future, they will eventually figure out how to fully integrate dirty dancing into actual gonzo porn. This will catch on with a quickness, especially with those who are already expert dancers.
 
In the future, inspired by Couch by Couchwest, artists will also be compensated by a single recording of their show in their house, in a restaurant or in any venue they choose. Rather than it being uploaded to YouTube, you will have to pay the same exact same price that you would normally pay for their concerts.
 
In the future, hell probably now, somebody will make a porno that openly uses condoms on either a girl or a guy that has HIV, AIDS or any disease, but still aims to have good sex regardless. It'll promote safe sex and help eliminate the stigma of anyone having AIDS as being unlovable or unworthy of sexual needs. This is mostly inspired by at least three more porn actors or actresses who caught diseases during their job, and the viewers refusal to allow condoms to be worn inside their favorite pornos. This might jump off with a woman who has AIDS (either born with it or gained it), and fights for both feminism, the right to their sexuality and HIV/AIDS rights. This will make news like crazy. As a result of this, dudes will STILL not use as much condoms as they need to, and when following this trend, will be infected with AIDS.
 
In the future, rapping over Plaid, Boards of Canada, Squarepusher or Aphex Twin-like beats will be the mainstream for the US. Rapping over anything reminiscent of Venetian Snares will remain an underground trend for hip-hop. And if the US' current embrace of Skepta is any indication, Americans will also be bringing Grime to the US a decade or so too late.
 
In the future, there indeed will be hovercrafts, and Rick Ro$$-types will be rapping about how all you haters still drive bum-ass Lambourghinis.
 
In the future, inspired by the current war between police and black men, they'll eventually start using the tactic of raping or having sex with their loved ones (choose an age, any age) as a way to torture them and add to their disrespect of the race they don't share.

In fact, inspired by the constant killings of unarmed black males, there might be a war between black and white, in which the women of both sides might be treated the same way as the Asians were when they had the Joy Division in Nazi Germany.

What can I say? The future isn't all flying cars.
 
Anyone else have a prediction of what might happen in the future?

A questionable judgment of taste. And I really don't see the fuss. Objectively, the people of the world enjoy a higher standard of living than in any time in history. It's not perfect, but it shouldn't take us more than a couple hundred years either to reach Star Trek utopia, or blow ourselves into oblivion. Either way, it'll be a fun ride, and none of us will be around to see it, despite my plans to be the first man to live to 150.

I just thought of something a bit crazy, though. We're getting to a point that people even 150 years ago would call magic. This might be the last period of innovation in the entire spectrum of humanity's existence from its conception until its death. What if we get to a place where technological, artistic, and philosophical accomplishment is just 'done' in the next couple of hundred years. That would be so insane. I mean the only place left to go would be interstellar (great movie) travel.

In the future, people won't cook anymore. Someone will have invented some kind of thing that provides everything your body needs while you sleep. We'll all have a chip implanted in our brain though, the idea of the chip is that you go to the store, buy the food you would like to taste, go home, scan it with your finger, and then neurotransmitters will make you think you just ate that and it tasted good. In fact, you'll just buy stuff like "mac and cheese shit" or "ham sandwich shit", scan it and flush it down the toilet after you took a picture of it and uploaded it to instagram. The shit is in fact the real dish with real ingredients, but was processed by a machine resembling the human body, but no one will really ask questions about the logic of this. Some investigative journalist will make some documentary about how silly it all is after a few years, and expose the inner workings of this industry, and people will be like "yeah, we kinda knew that already, but it is weird though now that I see it so explicitly" and move on with their lives after the newspapers reported on it for 2 weeks. There will be TV-shows about professional cooks creating the best shit and brands will sue each other for stealing their shit. Only alcohol and other drugs will remain the way they were.

 

In the future, cars will drive by themselves on some kind of grid. It will be perfectly safe because there will be almost no more car crashes. Sometimes a car will crash though. And some robot will take the blame. He'll be taken to the town square where some masked guy with a laptop erases and formats his memory for a crowd of spectators, cheering, throwing eggs and tomatoes at the robot. It could even not really resemble a human, it could just be a big square mainframe, but that wouldn't spoil the fun. The government and secret service will be in cahoots with the big corporations that control these grids and will know where you are all of the time, but it's fine because "if you have nothing to hide you shouldn't care". People who are dissatisfied, will start/join/like online petitions and feel proud about themselves. It never works, but they forget about it after the newspapers reported on it for two weeks.

 

Everyone will be a "DJ" at some point in their lives, usually during high school or in college. These DJ shows will be accompanied by standardized weird visuals and every set will start off with the video for Bound 2 by Kanye West. Some big DJ started that as an ironic gesture but everyone kind of lost sense of that. Kanye West is worshiped as a god and there are whole clans of people religiously awaiting the day his body gets defrosted. The most famous DJ's will have shows all over the world with holograms of themselves and a local hype-man, that is therefor a celebrity himself, but never really met the actual DJ. Seeing this success, MTv started making a show titled "hype-men", which would be the most music related thing they've done in years. After two seasons the wackiest dude gets his own show.

 

We'll be living in a skill-less society because "we have the technology". Everything is 'user friendly'... Our lord and savior, Steve Jobs, died for our convenience.

 

Robots will do most work. Most jobs for humans will be in the entertainment sector, politics, as company heads or in consultancy firms, where people who pretend to know something explain things to people who pretend to understand.

Madvillain's second album might be held in the same regards as a second Postal Service album: in that you might enjoy the idea of it more than the actual product.

Have you seen a show called H+: The Series? It tackles what happens in modern times, if transhumanism ever were to take place. We would all be real life versions of Gary (which is a character from Alphas, if you don't know.)

Either way, it'll be a fun ride, and none of us will be around to see it, despite my plans to be the first man to live to 150.

 

Actually I think it's quite possible that many of us will live to see 150. With the advent of 3D printing, we're looking at potentially endless medical innovations. 3D printing has already saved lives, and it's speculated that it could end world hunger within a few decades.  

It's just a matter of time before we can print new body parts/organs for whatever part is failing us. The point is, medical science is rapidly advancing. By the time we're in our 60s who knows how far medical science would have come. 

 

Some futurists theorize that in a few decades we will have nanobots that travel through our bloodstreams optimizing and repairing our cells, seeking out and destroying cancer, replenishing vitamins and mineral deficiencies etc. I mean, we almost have the technology for that now... So It's really not very far fetched at all lol

 

Here's some other crazy stuff that's already happened/happening that will improve human life/lifespan:

-Cuba has a vaccine for Lung cancer that actually stops tumors from growing. This is a huge breakthrough in cancer research. 

-Some researchers have managed to grow organic meat(steak actually) in a lab. It didn't taste good, but the texture was pretty close. 

-Self driving cars are already being tested. In a matter of years we could all relax and let our cars do the work. This would significantly reduce traffic fatalities if not eliminate it almost entirely.

A robotic engineer recently stated that he believes the rich, in a 100 years or so will become immortal. While the poor, will not. Interesting Sci Fi stuff there. An immortal life. Wow.


Also, on the driverless cars, Elon Musk thinks it should be illegal for humans to drive in 50 years. Quite a step.

I totally believe immortality could be a possibility in 100 years. I'm thinking it'll be along the lines of backing up our consciousness to some sort of advanced hard drive. I have no idea how else it could happen. But I'm also a little more optimistic as to who will be capable of receiving it. I don't think there'll be as much of a "class struggle" in 100 years. 

By that point starvation will be a thing of the past. Less starvation means significantly less crime. Which means that there'll be less demand for police, and less war.

Education should be easier than ever because we literally already carry supercomputers around in our pockets with vast nearly endless amounts of information on it. My thinking is that in about 50 years, people will generally be significantly more knowledgable, healthier, well fed, and less violent than now. Which means peaceful resolution will be easier than ever before to accomplish.

 

Right now a 3D printer can print a chess piece, in 20 years we could be printing our breakfast, lunch, dinner, medicine, computers, everything. And it'll all be much cheaper too. The raw materials for these things will be easier to produce. Which means pretty much everybody will have lot's of unrestricted access to essential things like medicine/computers/food/organs, etc. 

It is indeed a bright future. Unless of course, like jbuzz said, we blow ourselves into oblivion...

What news you watching!?

 

The way things are going, I am not so sure. America, is moving into a oligarchy. A system where a few elite have more money and power than the masses combined.

The way things are going, I am not so sure. America, is moving into a oligarchy. A system where a few elite have more money and power than the masses combined. 

 

Haha, what news you watching? The united states has been an oligarchy!!! It's quite well known that big business and wealthy people are the ones who narrow down our choices for who we vote for. In 2012 60% of the Super PAC donations came from .00042% of Americans. Which means roughly 130 people in the United States donated 60% of the Super Pac money to run campaigns for there favorite candidates. 

 

And as disturbing as that is, it's really not going to matter much in 50, let alone, 100 years. With the internet, cell phones, and social media, Information travels faster than it can be covered up. It's becoming harder and harder for governments to get away with things. Look how difficult it's becoming for police to get away with their racist bullshit. Everybody pretty much has a camera on them 100% of the time. They can take video footage of something, and upload it a minute later, two minutes later people all around the world can view it. Imagine how hard it will be to cover up the fact we live in an oligarchy in 10 years. 

99% of the earths population can and will make a difference if it ever even gets that bad.

 

My point is that technology is always making essential resources far more abundant. The biggest reasons in the world for war, crime, poverty, violence, etc. is that there's a finite amount of food, money, shelter, medicine, etc. 

So when technology steps in and improves conditions globally, the governments of the world are going to have far fewer compelling reasons to be greedy. Why go to war for oil if we're driving electric cars? Why go to war for food when we literally grow plenty of it?

 

Water shortage has always been one of the largest concerns for the future, but now we're on the verge of solving water shortage. We're growing meat in labs. We're on the verge of being able to print medicine, and other medical treatments in our homes. The main reasons people want money is for food, water, health, shelter, and convenience of life. 

 

When everybody (poor/rich) has more than adequate access to food, water, medicine, and other life conveniences, where will greed come into play? And then at that point, where does the lower class end and the middle class begin? Where does the middle class end, and the upper class begin? 

 

which is why I don't think there'll be a 'class struggle' in 100 years. This is all speculative though. For all I know the rich will build a super army of robots, terminator style, and wipe out the poor and middle class. Then the human population will be reduced to a few thousand rich people globally.
