The Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny & Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100

Physicist Michio Kaku takes us on a journey into the future to reveal 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. For example:

  • The Internet will be in your contact lens
  • You will control computers and appliances via tiny sensors that pick up your brain scans
  • 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
  • Radically new spaceships using laser propulsion may replace the expensive chemical rockets of today
  • You may be able to take an elevator hundreds of miles into space by simply pushing the up button.

This lecture was recorded on March 26, 2011 as part of the Distinguished Science Lecture Series hosted by Michael Shermer and presented by The Skeptics Society in California (1992–2015).

We offer this lecture to you freely, and greatly appreciate your support.
