Future visions in video

As anyone who tracks this blog knows, I love all things futuristic.  Via Rob Findlay I discovered this video yesterday from Corning Glass …

… apart from being the perfect family in the perfect house with the perfect lifestyle, I thought it was pretty good.

As is this one, demonstrating the future of mobile (back in 2008!):

    This is why 3D printing is becoming so deeply interesting as a trend, there is a gradual shift ongoing in manufacturing towards general purpose production means, also due to CNC machine tools, things like paint mixers or knitting machines.. and at a certain stage, probably within the next ten years, one can compose a fully automated end-to-end assembly line of such general purpose machines which not only construct the basic material (constructed from fungible core materials) but personalized products can be as easily produced as they are designed.
    I’m working on a proposal to get an initial infrastructural solution for this seeded. But the possibilities that will be realized within the next decades are mindboggling.
    With nanotech the limitations seem to indicate a physical hurdle at a scale 10^20 smaller than the Planck scale (10^-33 cm) and recent progress with so-called quantum mirages make it possible to scratch/etch computer circuits in an atom’s wavepacket.. and some experiments with quantum teleportation indicate it is possible to broadcast the results on a different scale (not just location or time) so that the problems of connecting with something so small can be resolved. This actually gives the possibility to not only assemble materials out of individual atoms, but it is also possible to carve a whole machine out of a single atom.
    The amazingly looking telephone from the Nokia advert would only be needed to have a tool to interface with on our size scale, but as a product it may probably not even come in existence when other production means become as flexible as software and a phone can be printed on small stickers of a square millimeter that one can stick on pieces of jewelry, a watch or even a fingernail. “Talk to the hand” will get a different meaning.
    The speed with which information technologies continue to crossfertilize in increased ingenuity appears to be moving at a speed which translates in an efficiency doubling every year. People consistently outwit Moore’s law with a factor of two.
    Once an industry reaches a level of maturity where it becomes an information technology the possibilities experience a combinatorial explosion and …
