A breakthrough physics study is paving the way to a better understanding of ultrafast electronics. Australian scientists have witnessed -- for the first time ever in the world -- the formation of quasiparticles in real time. This is globally significant and has major implications for the electronics industries.

But, er, what does it mean exactly?

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.
