A Day Made of Glass - The Future Technology In 2020

Get ready for the first complete synthetic human brain, moon mining, and much more. Maybe robotic moon bases, chips implanted in our brains, self-driving cars and high-speed rail linking London to Beijing. According to a dazzling number of technology predictions that single out the year 2020, it's going to be to be one heck of a year. Here, we take a look at some of the wonders it has in store.

2020, of course, is just a convenient target date for roughly-10-years-off predictions. "It's not any more particularly interesting, in my opinion, than 2019 or 2021," says Mike Liebhold, a Distinguished Fellow at the Institute for the Future, and an all-around technology expert with a resume that includes stints with Intel, Apple, and even Netscape.

We’re only 7 years from 2020 and there are some amazing technologies we’ll find in the process of moving forward.

A lot of people made some ambitious predictions for 2020. Being on the safe side, I’ve compiled a list of technologies that we’ll see most probably in 2020 and many of them will be standard in the industry.


  1. Terabyte SSD that will be affordable
  2. Early days of web 3.0
  3. Personalized medical diagnostics like genome testing and DNA sequencing
  4. 3d transistors technology in processors
  5. Extremely productive industrial 3D printers that will be used in assembly lines
  6. Implementation of Self Driving Cars
  7. Brain chips for paralyzed and controlling artificial body parts
  8. OLED display technology will standard
  9. AMAZING improvements in robotics that will be used in medical science, military and production automation.
  10. Commercial space travel (update: Russia just announced $50 billion space program)
  11. Introduction to quantum computing
  12. Google glasses and competitors will be in the market
  13. Complete immersion gaming experience with next gen gaming graphics and products like Oculus Rift
  14. Next generation Li-ion batteries that will charge 5 times faster and will be at least 3 times cheaper – research ongoing and federal funding is allocated
  15. Emergence of some killer medical startups
  16. Big data will be implemented in medical and research areas
  17. Wireless charging that will be much more practical
  18. Introduction to effective self-coding AI system
  19. Photorealism in AAA games. Luminous engine by Square Enix already amazing.
  20. Fiber Optic internet in most big US cities along with introduction to 5G, thanks to Google Fiber’s efforts
  21. Extreme progress in graphene’s industrial applications
  22. Our understanding of human brain will be staggering due to the recent breakthrough at Stanford and federal funding along with blue brain project.

So this is my list of technologies that we’ll see in 2020 most definitely. What are your thoughts on it?

I also believe that entrepreneurs and companies have to get rid of traditional notions and aggressively focus on execution of new technologies. Even if we have next gen tech and its not executed well enough, it won’t benefit any one.
