"Conventional drug detection generally use techniques that require long operation time, sophisticated experimental procedures, and expensive equipment with well-trained professional operators; moreover, they are not usually portable," says Joon Hak Oh, head of The Oh lab for organic electronics laboratory at Pohang University of Science and Technology.

Joon Hak Oh's research team has solved all of these problems, apparently. And the result is portable test - and an app - that together can detect amphetamines in urine within seconds, whilst only costing $50 to make.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
