The Technological Achievements of the New Decade that are expected to evolve Human Life

At the dawn of the new decade of 2020 and while electric vehicles begin to conquer consumers, movements are done by vehicles without drivers, supersonic jets annihilate distances on earth all asking how it will evolve and improve the lives of people by the end of the decade of 2020.

Within the next ten years, some small but very important miracles are expected to emerge and act to improve people’s everyday life. More specifically,

1. Production of non-animal meat

The mass production and distribution of non-animal meat will be a momentous intersection for traditional livestock breeding. This will result in the creation of a colossal world-wide new market. In particular, the participating companies-producers of vegetable (non-animal) meat coming from potatoes or soybeans will be involved in a market that initially approximates $150 billion and will grow rapidly.

The restriction of animal husbandry will become beneficial to the environment and will be minimised if do not disappear altogether the harmful effects in the human health from the animal-meat consumption.

2. Potable water produced by air or sea

Access to clean drinking water and more generally the difficulty of accessing pure drinking water is one of the most major issues on the planet since it currently affects more than 800 million people and is the main cause of increasing migratory flows from one continent to another.

In this case the University of Arizona and specifically in the field of materials technology has to present a surprising invention and since the specific technology they developed gives the possibility to produce potable clean water from the conversion of ambient air under any environmental conditions, without requiring energy consumption and without feeding but only with the use of Hydro  panel. (company: Zero Mass Water’s hydro panels. (www.wartsila.com) & (https://www.treehugger.com/solar-technology/solar-hydropanel-can-pull-10-liters-drinking-water-day-out-air.html)).

This technology will solve the problems of water scarcity of many populations and since it can produce potable water even in the desert.

At the same time, the classic method of desalination of seawater will be the main mechanism of production of potable water in countries that have access to the sea and at the same time face intense water shortage phenomena.

3. The 3D Printing of human organs will replace transplants

Within the next decade, is expected to be achieved the complete transformation of the surgeries of hospitals and clinics in which surgery doctors-surgeons will be able to print human organs in 3D printing  bioprinters for the purpose these printed human organs to be used directly in sufferers on the operating table and instead of these patients waiting for organs from dead healthy people.

The 3D medical bioprinter will be able to make kidneys, liver, heart, cornea, bones, epidermis, etc. using laminated cell material soaked in collagen to form each time the required human organ.

At the same time, the use of 3D printing for the reconstruction of houses and buildings will be generalized, creating a huge global market size.

4. Targeted DNA Interventions

The selective modification of the genome (DNA) of a living organism (plant, animal, human) will enable scientists to eliminate cellular mutations that cause severe diseases such as cancer etc.

The use of the CRISP/Cas9 method was first used and applied for the first time in the agricultural sector in order to maximize production in a natural way by removing entire populations (mainly the Third World and the South East Asian) from the range of hunger and starvation.

Cultivated seeds became more resistant to diseases and extreme phenomena of nature, creating improved (genetically modified) varieties of seeds, resulting in a magnified production. The same is hoped to be achieved for diseases that plague populations by interfering with scientists in the genome of vectors, e.g. mosquitoes, that carry certain diseases.

Chinese researcher Dr. He  Jiankui  of China’s Southern University of Science and Technology in  Schengen  and founder of two genetics companies, announced (November, 2018) that they intervened in the embryo genome and born twins that have acquired the natural ability to develop resistance to a possible future  HIV infection of  AIDS. Dr. He Jiankui was sentenced to three years’ probation for these experiments on infants.

The future is here, and it will become increasingly exciting for all mankind as we move forward in the new decade of 2020.
