Smart Clothing

Wearables have taken many different forms. People seem to love wearing advanced tech on themselves. We’ve seen the Apple Watch hanging on every second person’s wrist, smart jewelry, and even high tech shoes as advanced tech takes over our bodies. In the future, we hope to see smart clothing worn by the masses. This advanced tech could help people become more connected than ever while having heath benefits like tracking your activity and bodily functions, hopefully giving you vitality.

Brain VR

Advanced Tech

There are an array of VR games to currently play on headsets like the PS VR . Although you’re offered an immersive experience, some gamers still crave to truly form part of the video game worlds they love. Advanced tech for VR could mean that  you could connect your brain to a VR system. The Blue Brain Project hopes to use advanced tech and gadgets in the future to reconstruct the brain.

Automated Vehicle Hailing

Car companies have all made progress with delivering advanced tech and are all racing to the automated vehicle hailing finish line. Ford, for instance, has made a commitment to have more advanced tech vehicles on the roads by 2021 and to encourage people to hail automated vehicles to transport them in the urban areas of the future.

Skin Advanced Tech

In the future, you might be able to become one with your advanced tech by having gadgets become part of your body. This can be achieved either by applying an advanced tech material onto your skin or implanting gadgets right into your body. There are already ideas like this on the market, and we’re excited for the tech to continue expanding.



People have always dreamed of going beyond the limitations of their bodies: the pain, illness and, above all, death. Now a new movement is dressing up this ancient drive in advanced tech clothes. Referred to as transhumanism, it is the belief that science will provide a futuristic way for humans to evolve beyond their current physical forms and realise these dreams of transcendence.

Weather Control

Move over, Mother Nature. In the future, advanced tech will enable humans to somewhat control weather. Futuristic advanced tech could decrease damage caused by extreme weather conditions by helping humans understand weather better and respond appropriately. Additionally, advanced tech could see humans even manipulate weather conditions like China did by forcing a rainstorm with firing rockets into the sky.
