The nature of technology means that it is ever changing, constantly getting better as experts are able to make breakthroughs that make components smaller and more powerful. This means that there is an endless supply of new devices and services ready in the wings, just waiting for a chance to become mainstream. Even things that may seem impossible at the moment can quickly progress enough to become a reality. As such, there are a number of incredible pieces of technology that we could all soon be using, which may seem completely improbable right now.
Exoskeletons are likely to be the future of the military, with solders wearing armored suits that will protect them from all types of attack while also increasing their strength and endurance. Basic examples exist today in very simply forms, though several government agencies around the world are developing much more advanced versions that they hope will be functional within the next decade.
Super Maglev Trains
Current Maglev (magnetic levitation) trains are already very impressive, with examples in Japan and China able to reach speeds of up to 240 miles per hour. However, new research is being done on so-called Super Maglev trains that operate within a vacuum-sealed tunnel. The lack of air resistance and wind turbulence means that the vehicles could theoretically travel faster than 1,000 miles per hour.
