The world as we know it is likely to change dramatically within the next 100 years, say scientists.
Technology has been advancing in leaps and bounds over the last few decades with things like smartphones and the Internet having become commonplace only within the last 20 years or so.
Given this rate of advancement therefore, what will things be like within the next 100 years ?
In a new report co-authored by British space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock, scientists have put forward their predictions for the future and for the technologies that could arise by the year 2100.
Of particular note will be solutions to overpopulation such as “earthscrapers” – large buildings built below the ground rather than on top of it – and sophisticated underwater cities built inside gigantic bubbles that will make it possible to extract water, air and other resources from the ocean itself.
