I think that we can all agree that the most important technological advances will be medical ones - Cures for AIDS, Cancer etc., along with developing ways to create rain in poor countries, fight diseases, etc. I also really want to see much less reliance on Oil, and more prevalence of hybrid, electric, etc. for cars.

Besides that, I am really interested in seeing 3D television advance, in particular 3D TV without glasses; I'm not sure if this will mean the images are holograms, but I'm also interested in that. I think it would be very cool to be able to do a Skype call or Facetime, but with the ability to see the other person as a somewhat real-life hologram.

I really like what the Kinect does, in that you can command your T.V. to do certain things. I don't own an Xbox, but would like some sort of similar functionality where I can command my T.V. via my hand gestures and voice.

I'm sure there are a lot of things that I'm missing, which I'll probably include in the thread later.

Cold fusion. Bad thing the oil companies sabotage all the researches so we continue to rely on oil for all our needs. Not to mention most scientists are biased and think the cold fusion isn't possible so they just laugh in the face of the people who prove the fusion is real ..

Cold fusion would be great, but Oil companies are going to do allt hey can to prevent it.

3D TV's with no glasses are being made now, it's not that new of a technology is what i read. That's why you're going to see a lot of no-glasses 3D phones now & look at the Nintendo 3DS too.

I'm interested in the advanced in space travel

I'm looking forward to technological advances in the field of medicine...more specifically, in the field of nephrology.

Medicine all the way, and anything else that will benefit our health and well-being. I really don't care for 3D TV's without glasses and all that (not a fan of 3d entertainment anyway).
