It’s human nature to want to know what’s coming. It seems fitting, then, that our IP & Science business, with innovation at its core, should also partake in leveraging its assets to forecast the future. The following is one prediction from our new report that features 10 innovation predictions for the world in 2025. Make sure to check out the entire series of posts and download the full report here.
From the smallest personal items to the largest continents, everything, everywhere will be digitally connected, and responsive to our wants and likes.
The digital world as we know it today will seem simple and rudimentary in 2025. If you think we’re electronically dependent now, you haven’t seen anything yet.
Thanks to the prevalence of improved semiconductors, graphene-carbon nanotube capacitors, cell-free networks of service antenna and 5G technology, wireless communications will dominate everything, everywhere.
From cars and homes that respond to your every wish and want, to appliances that think for themselves, to interconnected geographies – from the most remote farmlands to bustling cities – we will all be digitally directed. Imagine the day when the entire continent of Africa is completely, digitally connected. That day will happen in 2025.
Carbon nanostructures, and carbon-based nanocomposites in particular, are part of the driving force behind this transformation, and are poised to take center stage in high-energy density and power-density applications. Carbon nanocomposites can be used as supercapacitive electrodes, either in two-or-three-dimensional structures, with high surface area. And, these supercapacitors will be able to store infinitely more energy for later release.
We will live in an ultra-digitally responsive world, where more things are exponentially connected to the Internet than people.
