Biotech and Nanotech will flop
Timeline: 25 years
I'm not sure why, but I think both of these technologies will fail to deliver to the degree of their hype. At least not in the next quarter century.
No doubt that they've already produced some interesting advancements, but I think future developments in these fields will be slow and fairly boring.
These fields in 2010 remind me of space technology of the 1960s.
Sure, we got some pretty neat stuff out of the race to the space, but certainly no flying cars, or subdivisions on the moon.
I don't think either of these technologies will produce the miracles that some suggest.
Hopefully some eager scientists will prove me wrong!
