Though the Internet was technically created more than 50 years ago...
it wasn’t until 1992 that it started expanding into what we now know as the World Wide Web.
And today, it’s diffi cult to imagine life without the Internet — and without our computers, cells phones and PDAs.
Technology is evolving and changing at an alarming rate, and new scientific research and inventions are unfolding daily.
Though it’s difficult to visualize how the world will look 20 to 30 years in the future, the World Future Society has predicted that 10 breakthrough technologies will transform life as we currently know it:
> Alternative energy
> Precision Farming
> Quantum Computers
> Entertainment on Demand
> Global Access
> Distance Learning
> Smart Robots
These technologies will revolutionize the way we play, communicate and do business.
