The sheer wonder of science


Dr. Michio Kaku, a Japanese American theoretical physicist and bestselling author, published his latest book, Physics of the Future: How Science Will Change Daily Life by 2100 (2011).
Kaku outlines a future in which cars will be driven by computers, the aging process will be frozen, and the internet will be surfed in contact lenses. “You’ll blink, and when you see people, biographies of that person will emerge in your contact lens, so you’ll know exactly who you’re talking to. Also, your contact lens will translate what they say, from Chinese or German into English, as you talk to them. So you’ll know always who you are talking to and what they are saying,” says Kaku.

And all these technologies already has prototypes, Kaku says. Imagine that!

Interesting concepts of this popular physicist. I have seen some documentaries presented by him like “Visions of the Future”  where he explores the cutting edge science of today, tomorrow, and beyond and “Time” where we go on an extraordinary exploration of time. I must say he is very entertaining and breaks down these difficult subjects to a level whereby us humans can understand.
