Predictions For The Next 150 Years

There’s nothing like staring at the onset of a new year and making predictions on what the next 150 years will look like. Silly predictions are the best! BBC cooked up some ideas and gave odds on what they think will happen in the next 150 years ranging from most likely to least likely and if it’ll lead to utopia or dystopia.

A couple of my favourite predictions:

  • High resolution bionic eyes are on sale in 2019
  • You can upload the contents of your brain to a computer in 2021
  • Cars are now purely automated and driver free by 2040
  • Tax has been abolished in the USA in 2100
