We're privileged to be living in a time where science and technology can assist us, make our lives easier and rethink the ways we go about our daily lives. The technology we're already exposed to and accustomed to has paved the way for us to innovate further, and this list of current and future technologies certainly have the potential to change our lives even more.

1. Venture Reality (VR)

There's no denying that VR is the next big thing for the gaming industry, and the way we interact with VR will undoubtedly affect our daily lives. Games like The Walking Dead VR mode in Sanzaru Games' virtual reality-enhanced hit game have shown us that there's no game we won't be able to enjoy in virtual reality. Our generation is about to get a taste of virtual reality that we'll never forget.

Virtual reality will continue to benefit the gaming industry, but also, it will revolutionize the way we consume and access information in the coming years. The technology could take a while to catch on with the rest of the world, but it's about time to start making predictions.

2. Artificial Intelligence (AI) 

The most pressing challenge we have is how to continue to develop and enhance the way technology can help us, and keep these technologies reliable, safe and transparent.

We're already witnessing the disruptive effects of AI; from robots replacing jobs, to banking apps utilizing the same technology to do all the day-to-day tasks.

Companies like Facebook are already working on harnessing AI to become a more affordable alternative to employees, and companies like Beamly have already launched a bot called Laura to provide customer support through the Google Assistant.

An artificial intelligence (AI) is a computer system that simulates human intelligence and is often developed to perform a particular task or area of expertise. AI has become so advanced in the past few years that it has developed to the point that machines are now able to generate their own programs or scripts. Already, Google's DeepMind is capable of creating 'memories' and 'sentences', which make them think as we do.

3. Driverless Cars

By 2040, the vast majority of cars on the road will be autonomous. At that point, the drivers of these autonomous cars won't be required. In fact, they could be completely replaced by someone working for a private car service.

While the future of autonomous cars isn't easy to predict, experts believe they will be used for a variety of transportation, from picking up and dropping off employees to transporting goods and passengers. In fact, driverless trucks will be used to deliver large goods more quickly and safely.

4. Health & Technology

Telepresence is a form of remote-control communication or virtually traveling, using technologies such as teleconferencing, video conferencing and telepresence robots. These technologies offer companies and organizations the opportunity to facilitate more face-to-face meetings, yet bring employees into the office.

According to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), there will be approximately 800 million people living in remote areas by 2020, and about 2 billion people by 2040. The demand for technology that can deliver on the promise of increased access to the office has already begun to rise.

5. Social Media Presence

We spend more time than we ever have on social media sites, but it's important to remember that it's about connecting with people and other like-minded individuals. We use social media to stay in touch with loved ones around the world, make new friends and receive information, and for us, there's nothing wrong with that.

Conclusion

There are quite a few current technologies that will become more common and popular within the next decade, ranging from virtual reality and robotics to augmented reality and alternative energy. For example, VR headsets like the Oculus Rift will soon be made more mainstream, and products like iRobot's Roomba and LG's robotic vacuum cleaner will be in more households as they become easier to use and afford. The future seems to hold a lot of promise for our future.

Now that you've seen what's next, you might want to start looking into the future, too!
