Description

Michio Kaku is one of those rare physicists who has the charisma of a showman. So naturally his books are best-sellers and his TV shows are watched worldwide. In this book Kaku presents his vision of the future based on interviews with over three hundred of the world’s top scientists, who are already inventing the future in their labs. Kaku presents the revolutionary developments in medicine, computers, quantum physics, and space travel that will forever change our way of life and alter the course of civilization itself.

According to Michio Kaku the future will be extraordinary. The ultra fast internet will be in your contact lenses. It will recognize people’s faces, display their biographies, and even translate their words into subtitles. What is even more amazing that you will be able to control computers with microscopic sensors implanted in your brains. Furthermore sensors in your clothing, bathroom, and appliances will monitor your vitals, and nanobots will scan your DNA and cells for signs of danger, allowing life expectancy to increase dramatically. Add to that space elevators, cars that fly by floating on magnetic fields and advances in space travel and you have something akin to a sci-fi film. The only difference is that all of these ideas are not only realistic, but are being pursued at this very moment.

Renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku details the developments in computer technology, artificial intelligence, medicine, space travel that are poised to happen over the next hundred years. He also considers how these inventions will affect the world economy, addressing the key questions: Who will have jobs? Which nations will prosper? Kaku interviews three hundred of the world’s top scientists—working in their labs on astonishing prototypes. He also takes into account the rigorous scientific principles that regulate how quickly, how safely, and how far technologies can advance. In Physics of the Future, Kaku forecasts a century of earthshaking advances in technology that could make even the last centuries’ leaps and bounds seem insignificant.
