Envisioning tech in 2045
RP'ers can think up some exciting and downright scary visions when it comes to the future of technology. Here are a few examples of Tech our members have invented
This piece of Tech is a handheld tablet that's part iPhone, part computer, part gadget of James Bond's dreams. Not only does it operate any number of apps as can be imagined, but a single swipe of the finger will send an enlarged projection of the screen's contents to the air above up to several screens at a time. Internal upgrades allow for a full-sized, built in laser projection keyboard when the touchpad simply won't do. Wallets are expensive, but widely available.
Picture a slim device that functions like a blood sugar monitor. A single drop of blood on a test strip inserted into this pocket-sized device analyzes DNA content in a matter of moments. With proper clearance, the sample's host is identified or confirmed. Widely used for security purposes in combination with retinal scanners.
What will be next? Neurohacking? QED-circuits? Dark networks? Only time will tell.
The set of glasses Hood wore in his bio are a special forces piece of kit, so a bit more advanced then what may be publicly available, or used by other 'first world' military forces. At it's core, it would be comparable to Google Glass of today, but with 30 years of advancements and certainly far more durable.
The glasses are one full piece, and replaceable with other colors, with clear, dark, and yellow being the most common choices. The frame incorporates a micro computer of it's own, and can wireless synch with Wallets or other similar technology (like Iphones, if those are still around), although military forces usually have their own dedicated computer unit.
Common features are GPS with mapping system, digital video camera, and a HUD system used through pre-determined eye movements. More advanced features are tactical Waypoint (on-screen representation of a intended route of travel to designated positions), facial recognition software or threat recognition (can spot and sometimes identify firearms within view of the camera), shared view (display what the camera of another wearer can see). A 'Dead Reckoning Module' functions to track location when GPS is not available.
