Tech-no-crippled !! My technological dreams!

new-technology-protesting

Yes, technology can improve things for some and do damage to others. When the steel plow was introduced, entrepreneurs created the dust bowl by selling marginal land for agriculture at a profit to immigrants. Land speculators became wealthy, Bankers became wealthy by forclosures, and the impoverished farmers had no clue!
For almost every step forward that technology provides, someone is caught in the squeeze and falls two steps behind. But there is always a creamy side to a story! Lets see what we may get or what I think we should get sooner or later.

image When I was a kid, I always wanted a hoverboard like in “Back to the Future II”.  Lightweight hoverboards doesn’t seem realistic now, not even in the near future, but it is one of my strongest wish which remains on top of my technological demands!

 

Robot love

We rely on machines for everything and anything; be it calculating the numbers for which we could have otherwise taken years to solve, or watching a sports events LIVE even from thousands of miles! If parents can illegally try to determine the sex of their child before birth, lets try to achieve something where orgasm could just rely on some clicks! Robot love, what say?

I envision a day when people can get magazine subscriptions and the daily newspaper on their light weight tablet and read it on the way to work.  This might very well be how the declining print media industry can be saved.  The Ipad is a step in the right direction but in its current form, it cost too much and is too heavy.  Hopefully OLED technology in the future will help make for lighter tablets that can be folded away and extends the battery life…which leads to something else I want….

image

A lot of gadgets and ‘critical’ things depend on the battery to function and I really haven’t seen a real battery life breakthrough.  If you own a gadget and it has a screen that you use regularly, I bet you have to charge it every one to three days.  I want to see a breakthrough that can power that same gadget endlessly without the need for a recharge.  If this breakthrough happens, we can do so much more with portable gadgets and places that are off the ‘grid’ can be made more accessible.

I have so much more in mind, but instead of strolling on, I would conclude that technology and it’s growth are both a blessing and a curse. Neither science nor technology in and of themselves are good or bad. It is what we as humans choose to do with science and technology that is good or bad!! Let’s dream for a better hi-def world with equally hi-definition and pure thinking too towards each other! Amen!

Hmmm ,hope all ur wishes come true in our lifetime itself :)

Kevin said...

I think that recharge free concept is very much possible and we may see it very soon. We already have it in place for many watches (Citizen Eco Drive). Also the watches that gather energy on the motion of the wrist.
Also we already have an airplane that flew for about a day on solar energy.

Er. said...

Robot love? Nice. I want all these things in REAL, now. Enough said.

Rashmi Nair said...

These dreams might take many decades to get real :P .. but seriously, if given a chance I would like to have a technology like "cloudy with meatballs" .. food from water. Plus, some superb inbuilt gadgets in our clothes or watches which can display 3D screen to access everything along with a world wide wireless technology....

*sigh* we dream a lot and we demand a lot. :D

anatreek said...

A nice combination of realistic and unrealistic dreams, i would say :)

Sowmya said...

Nice post Sourav, glad to know that in a tiny way, my post inspired you to post this;)

I have voted for you too. All the best..

Nalini Hebbar said...

Think of the trees that can be saved by a paperless newspaper!...but what about the rustle of the newspaper read with a cup of tea! To miss that would be sad!

Phoenixritu said...

Interesting, I think the Back to the Future shoes that tie themselves up have been invented by Adidas. Hoverboards sound risky to me

S said...

@Thamanna - And I thank you! :D

@Sathish - I wish that too! ;)

@Trust me about that, I knew nothing on those terms. I would love my stupid wishes to come true anyway!

@Arjit - yeah! That's what interests you!;p

@Ana - thanks a lot! :)

@Rashmi - and you want some electro-pyjama too? ;)

@Sowmya - Ohh yes! :P
And I voted for you too!

@Nalini - *sigh* How we wish for a lot, and then we wish those are not true either!

@Ritu - That was some info! Though I like getting those risky things ;)

tanvi said...

hey thnks 4 ur comments on my post , wrking n blogging dnt really go dat well for me..However triying my lil bit to continue my passion for writing....btw u've already be promoted by me...check ur lng list of promoters...

Sanchita said...

Interesting post..I like the idea of folded lighter tablets :)

Anonymous said...

Interesting post. I must say I am with you on the hoverboard...I fell in love with them the first time I saw them! Sigh...if only. According to the movie, we should now be using them!! :P Good luck with teh contest...

Uma Anandane said...

Very well written.Technology is endless and limitless.So many invention to make life easier,happier but still have to strive to make life peacefuller.Your choice of endless power is something to ponder upon and bring into action.Maybe like Solar power or wind power meeting endless needs (or) like movement power(by walking and running we spend so much energy right) like legend MJ did it in his Billie jeans song... :)

Palak Vasant said...

Hey Sourav, I liked your imagination of how you are portraying the world, but there is always another side of the coin.
If the world gets digitalized/robotized the way we picture it, it will be an effortless situation. The good example to that is the film WALL-E. Humans become obese and forget that they could even walk, same way with robotic loves - probably people might forget the true pleasure of it. The flexi-tablet newspapers is an awesome concept but can surely cause much damage to eyes, what about li'l kids? But hey nevertheless those were creative thoughts and products designers would surely admire them!! Good Luck for the contest.

S said...

@Tanvi - what do I say to that, just a thanks would do good? :)

@Sanchita - Yeah! It would have been so much easier taking the virtual along everywhere! Thanks! :)

@PB - Thanks! BTF gave me so much ideas, if only I did my studies in science, and not commerce!

@Uma - Technology can never be stepping stone to a peaceful life! Ohhh yes, MJ's steps were energetic enough to charge a billion batteries of the world! :)

@Palak - At times, it's good to go beyond the normal. Yes, Wall-E was a perfect example. I agree, but tell me have we not actually forgotten some pleasures in real life, since technology is taking over it all! I never thought so deep! Thank you! :)

Uma said...

interesting tech dreams!
liked the tablet idea!

Unknown!!! said...

Good luck for the contest buddy..
and thanks for droppin by my blog...
My vote to you :)

Jaspreet said...

Wishful thinking!:)
The concluding lines 'technology and it’s growth are both a blessing and a curse' somehow reminded of the 'essay' that we used to write in school ,at the end of which we always wrote this line :D

S said...

@Uma - Thanks, I hope it gets true someday! :)

@Unknown - Thanks man!

@Jaspreet - At times, it's so good to be able to connect to the roots! :D

Palak Vasant said...

Sourav: I agree to your point of pushing boundaries of conventions, I certainly support that aspect. Now to the answer of your question - yes we have definitely forgotten the roots to certain extent. And looking at the present scenario, our own technology is the cause of all environmental /urban issues, so there's a cliché. Hah, good that I made you think that way:P. Thanks.

S said...

Palak, yes technology is behind most of the evils around us, but it is responsible for a lot of better things too. Yes, we lose lives but yes lives are saved too! Yes, we forget to talk to our family members but you and me are talking here too!

There is a good to bad, and a bad to good, always :)

Yes, probably now you help me with the conceptual robotic love now ;)

Thanks for being here, again! :)

Medha said...

Congratulations on your win! A deserving post indeed.

S said...

Thanks a lot Pinky! :)

zephyr said...

Congrats Sourav! Hope you make a hat-trick of prizes! All the best!

S said...

Thanks Zephyr! But you know I'll take an off from contests for now :)

Palak Vasant said...

Yes, like I said earlier there is another side of the coin too. So on positive side yes we are bearing the fruits :). Won't talk about the negatives any more...lol, I guess we all know them. Haha sure now you could imagine something new and write a post on robotic loves(vague suggestion :P). Congratulations for the win! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am too adding ya.

S said...

That's the whole point when we talk about the same thing, we come to conclusion and hence the tropic gets dropped, which is not good! :p

Ohhh! But you gave me an idea,but are sure that post would not turn my blog in to a porn blog? ;)

Thank you so much for the vote and support, it was much needed! :)

likemymusings.blogspot.com said...

excellent. great thinking and writing
impeccably.

Palak Vasant said...

Sometimes it's good to drop the topic ;0. See now how u write is all upto u if u take it in a wrong manner it may and if take it in some creative manner u hit something different...that's how innovations happen u :P.

S said...

@likemymusings - Thanks! I don't think there are more nice words left to say! ;)

@Palak - though you missed a lot of words here in your comment, I still managed to understand! :p
Ohhh yes, my mind is as pure as pure can be, just that this dirty world is getting too deep in my nerves and changing the way I think! ;) And btw, why don't you try some innovation this time, may be you can come up with Wall-E II! :D

Pree-yea.... said...

Guess who's back...?/
And Orgasm robots, FTW! :p

Haddock said...

enjoyed reading this.
Like the way you have added the pictures at the appropriate places.

RaNiiiiii said...

Nice post.. i agree with the last one.. battery charging... i heard there is some research goin on in waterloo univ regarding lithium battery that can store and deliver 3 times the power of conventional Li batteries.. it sounds they are gonna achieve this pretty soon in couple of years..

S said...

@Pree-yaa! Guess who is happy! :D
Why, you don't like that! :p

@Haddock - Thanks, I care a lot about the presentations! :)

@Raniii - Thanks. I didn't know about that, though while writing for this post I looked around, got some that it seems to be a close possibility now. Well wish I can foldable OLED display with lifelong battery someday! :D

pal said...

Excellent idea! Hope it comes true in our lifetime itself!!

S said...

Thanks Pal! I hope it does! :)
