Michio Kaku is probably one of the most famous physicists and masterminds of our time. In his book “Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100*” the author therefore takes a look at the coming decades. This is made possible by the book’s fundamental assumption that the fundamentals of physics will not change between now and the year 2100, and that it is therefore easier to define the framework of the future.
In discussions with 300 experts from physics, chemistry and biology, he therefore goes in search of the technologies that mankind will use at the next turn of the century. Thus, the book contains the idea of simultaneous translators, of which the first prototypes already exist today, but also artificial organs and memory-enhancing chips. If all these topics seem familiar to you, you will soon realize that Kaku’s book is perhaps closer to the present than the author himself thought.
Whether Elon Musk, Microsoft or Google, many of the visions of the future are already beginning to beat their drives today. The innovation cycles are faster than many an expert can imagine. The book itself may be eight years old by now, but anyone who wants to have a vision of the next few years will not be disappointed by the author’s visions. Michio Kaku eloquently manages to take the reader into the future, so you should just sit back while reading and enjoy the partly bizarre prophecies.
