Technology

Are you ready for the future?  We live at a time when technology is advancing at an exponential pace.  Today, scientists are rapidly developing bizarre new technologies that most science fiction writers never even would have dreamed of a couple decades ago.  For example, would you be willing to get rid of your bank card and start paying for things with only your face?  Would you be willing to allow a technology company to put one large computer chip or thousands of really, really small ones (“neural dust”) into your brain?  These are some of the technologies that are coming.  Our world is changing at an absolutely mind blowing rate, and to be honest none of us really knows what our world is going to look like a decade from now.  Remember, ten years ago Facebook did not exist and five years ago the iPad did not exist.  Our planet is fundamentally being transformed, and our scientists are rapidly turning the “impossible” into the possible.  The following are 6 apocalyptic technologies that most people have not even heard about yet…

#1 Facial Recognition Software That Replaces Bank Cards

Will people soon pay for things by having their faces scanned at the checkout counter?  That may sound absurd, but according to the Daily Mail a company from Finland has already launched this technology…

Bank cards are already being replaced by phones and wristbands that have payment technology built-in but the latest threat to the lowly plastic in your pocket could be your face.

A Finnish startup called Uniqul has launched what it calls the first ever payment platform based on facial recognition.

The system doesn’t require a wallet, bank card or phone – instead a camera is positioned at the checkout and takes a photo of a shopper’s face when they are ready to pay.

It then scans a database for the face and matches it to stored payment details in order to complete the transaction.

#2 Facial Recognition Technology Already Being Used In Stores And In Digital Advertising Displays

Do you remember the billboards in the movie “Minority Report” that used facial recognition technology to scan faces and produce appropriate ads?  Personally, I never thought that I would see such a thing in my lifetime, but the truth is that a company called Amscreen already has over 6,000 digital screens that use this kind of technology.  In fact, their advertising screens are already being viewed by approximately 50 million people

Advertising network Amscreen recently launched a unique face-detection technology, originally developed by automated audience measurement firm Quividi.

Cameras have been installed in Amscreen’s digital advertising displays that can scan a person’s face and determine their gender, age, date, time and volume of the viewers.

This is so adverts are served to the most appropriate audience.

Amscreen already has over 6,000 digital screens seen by a weekly audience of over 50 million people.

And according to NPR, this kind of facial recognition technology is now being used in some retail stores to identify VIPs…

This lack of recognition is precisely what the VIP-identification technology designed by is supposed to prevent.

The U.K.-based company already supplies similar software to security services to help identify terrorists and criminals. The ID technology works by analyzing footage of people’s faces as they walk through a door, taking measurements to create a numerical code known as a “face template,” and checking it against a database.

In the retail setting, the database of customers’ faces is comprised of celebrities and valued customers, according to London’s . If a face is a match, the program sends an alert to staff via computer, iPad or smartphone, providing details like dress size, favorite buys or shopping history.

#3 Google Wants To Put A Chip In Our Brains?

Would you allow a technology company to put a chip in your brain?

According to a recent article in a major UK newspaper, apparently this is exactly what executives at Google believe will happen someday…

It began, just 15 years ago, as a service that enabled you to type a request into a personal computer and be given links to associated websites. Things have rather moved on. Soon Google hopes to have the ubiquitous presence of a personal assistant that never stops working, capable of conversing naturally in any language. Ultimately, as Page and co-founder Sergey Brin have asserted, the goal is to insert a chip inside your head for the most effortless search engine imaginable.

In fact, on a recent visit to Google the reporter writing the article quoted above was told the following by Google Vice President of Search Ben Gomes…

Where will it end? Gomes agrees that a chip embedded in the brain is far from a sci-fi fantasy. “Already people are beginning to experiment with handicapped people for manoeuvring their wheelchairs,” he says. “They are getting a few senses of direction with the wheelchair but getting from there to actual words is a long ways off. We have to do this in the brain a lot better to make that interaction possible. We have impatience for that to happen but the pieces of technology have to develop.”

#4 The Pentagon Is Developing A “Terminator Robot” Named Atlas

Did you know that the U.S. military is building robots?

Okay, so they aren’t quite like “the Terminator” yet.  But apparently they are rapidly becoming very advanced

ATLAS is 6 ft and 2 inces, it weighs 330 pounds. Its primary purpose is said to be joining in relief efforts particularly in those places where involvement of human beings is lethal or downright impossible. Boston Dynamics, who built the ATLAS body, say that the robot is strong and coordinated enough to climb using its hands and feet, as well as pick its way in congested spaces. The people who have been called in to work on the robot are tasked with programming it to interact in the most efficient way it can be made to. DARPA has released a video which shows ATLAS walking, avoiding obstacles, withstanding brute force applied at its torso and even climbing the stairs.

You can view that video of ATLAS doing those things right here.

So as these robots become more sophisticated, will there be any limits on how the U.S. military will employ them?  A recent article in the Washington Post painted a frightening picture…

But what’s to stop the same indestructible robots that can walk over rubble, manipulate complex tools and enter burning buildings from being used in entirely different scenarios by the U.S. military? They might, for example, be able to march through debris-strewn war zones, manipulate weapons and hunt down terrorists, on a house-by-house basis. In other words, the DARPA Robotics Challenge could result in the creation of a real-life Terminator bot.

#5 Using Only Sound Waves To Levitate And Move Small Objects

Did you know that it is possible to levitate and move small objects using only small waves?  Just check out what a team of scientists in Switzerland recently discovered

A team of researchers in Switzerland have developed a way of levitating and transporting small objects using nothing but sound.

Using ultrasonic waves – that is, sound waves whose frequency is too high for humans to hear – scientists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich have made water droplets, instant coffee crystals, styrofoam flakes, and a toothpick, among other objects, hang in midair, move along a plane, and interact with each other. It is the first time that scientists have been able to use sound to simultaneously levitate several objects next to each other and move them around.

#6 Ultrasonic Neural Dust

This is perhaps the most frightening technology on the list.  The advances in the field of nanotechnology that we have seen over the past decade have been absolutely mind blowing.  Now, some scientists are talking about actually being able to put thousands of tiny little computer chips inside our heads.  The following is from a recent Time Magazine article

Here’s how it might work: First you pop through the skull and the brain’s dura (the membrane surrounding the brain), dipping into the brain’s neural sea itself, roughly two millimeters down, where you position thousands of low-powered CMOS chips (the “neural dust,” each as tiny as millionths of a meter) to begin capturing neural signals using electrodes and piezoelectric sensors, which convert the data to ultrasonic signals. Those signals are then picked up by a sub-dural transceiver (sitting just above the “dust” chips and simultaneously powering them ultrasonically), which relays the data to an external transceiver resting just outside the skull (ASIC, memory, battery, long-range transmitter), which in turn communicates wirelessly with whatever computing device.

Like most futurist notions, this one hasn’t been tested yet — it’s just a formal proposal — but it’s another fascinating glimpse into where we might be headed, bypassing clumsy literal BMI head-jacks for micro-scale interfaces that would link us, wire-free, to future galaxies of virtual information.

While many of these emerging technologies may sound very exciting, the truth is that it is important to remember that any technology is a two-edged sword.

A technology can be used for good or it can be used for evil.

And we certainly live at a time when the grip of the Big Brother surveillance grid that is being constructed all around us is rapidly getting tighter.

I think that it is important to step back and understand how much life has changed over the past several decades.  We used to have much more liberty and much more freedom than we have today.  Just consider the following examples from a recent article posted on the Economic Policy Journal

In 1975:

1. You could buy an airline ticket and fly without ever showing an ID.

2. You could buy cough syrup without showing an ID.

3. You could buy and sell gold coins without showing an ID

4. You could buy a gun without showing an ID

5. You could pull as much cash out of your bank account without the bank filing a report with the government.

6. You could get a job without having to prove you were an American.

7. You could buy cigarettes without showing an ID

8. You could have a phone conversation without the government knowing who you called and who called you.

9. You could open a stock brokerage account without having to explain where the money came from.

10. You could open a Swiss bank account with ease. All Swiss banks were willing and happy to open accounts for Americans.

Yes, facial recognition technology could have some positive uses, but will we eventually be required to have our faces scanned wherever we go?

Yes, robots can be used to do a lot of great things, but will governments around the globe eventually be deploying armies of “killer robots” against all of us and against each other?

Just because technology is advancing does not mean that life will necessarily be better in the future.  For example, the video below was recently posted on shtfplan.com and it imagines what ordering a pizza might be like in the year 2015…

Yes, that video is very funny, but it also makes a very serious point.

Technology is increasingly being used to watch, track, monitor and control the things that we do.  As this web of technology gets even tighter, we may find that we do not really like how it has changed our lives.

That is why it is important for society to have some very important discussions about privacy, liberty and freedom while we still can.

If we don’t set up limits on the use of these technologies now, someday we might end up bitterly regretting it.

    Somebody will start a business manufacturing “life like” face masks. The first range should consist of known bankers, whilst the second second range should be known politicians. Products can readily be tested at the nearest ATM. An optional cap that uses EM energy to scramble outgoing “neural dust” data would also be beneficial.

      face masks with REALLY big noses LOL

    Look up organised stalking and electronic harassment. I suffer from this. I have an electronic voice going off several times a minute saying short phrases such as “fear” etc… This is a sick system of control meant to exclude people who are ‘different’ from society, to make society more uniform and hence easier to control. A large part of the mechanism used is Silent Spectrum Spread Technology, which has recently been admitted by US senators to be a National Security issue. The rich use the infrastructure of the Western nations to erect a control grid based on this technology, so that anyone who is deemed ‘a threat’ by the rich oligarchs of the West will be ‘controlled’ or dealt with appropriately.

    PRISM just scratches the edge of the iceberg and may be a controlled release of news so that the public slowly become used to the technology that is used against them, as if such a system were sprung upon ‘the masses’ all of a sudden, they wuld rebel. Better to have it incrementally implemented. These people are sick. They have killed so many over the course of decades, if not longer. The bankers, Royal Family, Secret societies and all other allied Anglo-American oligarchs who are implicated have to go, or they will destroy us and them in their unending quest to achieve a ‘scientific’ (rigged) technocratic dictatorship.

    By the way, I am in the medical field and am familiar with how the mental health field is used to silence or discredit potential opposition. It is like the Soviet Union here in the UK, except its the European Union and its far more insidious and deadly.

      Learn meditation so you can lower your dominant brain wave frequency at will.

      Do you know which spectrum the technology is using? How close are you to a cell tower when this occurs?

      Try keeping your mobile off for a few days, except to check for calls/texts etc. Also switch off Wi-Fi routers in the same manner.

      Which part of the UK, very roughly?

    I guess the jews have taken over finland too now, WTF
    so what about identical twins? your twin could rack up a shopping spree and it would be billed to you, what about all the muslim women wearing burkas ? what about all the people who have been getting face transplants now people who have has acid or lie thrown in their face or been mauled by a chimp or a mountain lion

    • dan

      wow really you must be a Muslim who hates jewish folks .

      • Jonathan Rodriguez

        oh yeas cause everyone loves those parasites only muslims and “neo Nazis” the the jews, everyone knows that

  • cinnamon

    Oh, crap…I forgot my foil hat at home. I am soo screwed!

  • dan

    Heard about everyone of those … People need to read their bibles .It foretell advance technology long long time ago .They will use a chip in the hand to follow you and no one can buy or sell .Written about 1000’s of years ago .Now we see the science fact proving biblical truth

    • Shellbell

      It amazes me to see Bible prophecy coming to life right before our eyes! I find it exciting to think we may be going home soon!!!

  • Child of God

    Not to damper anyones party, but, I have NEVER read anything in the Bible about the mark of the beast being a computer chip. I know that out is widely belived that it will, and probably could very well be, but all that the Bible says about todays technology is that it will be increased. Anyway ,Maranatha my Christian brothers and sisters! God bless

    • Terri Hadley-kirk

      Please read Revelation in the bible. Especially chapter 13 & 14 verses 11-18 in chapter 13. In chapter 14 read verses 7-12. Hope this helps. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (666)

    Give your lives to Jesus Christ of Nazareth now! Give Him a try to see what He is about–if you somehow doubt Christianity! You will not be sorry! Unlike the devil(who mostly evil-minded or hearted people or very curious people seek directly), Jesus has a reputation for being a good master that only requires your best. My personal experience is that this overwhelming supernatural peace came over me and into my life! Whew! If you are on the fence about keeping Christianity at arm’s length and say you’ll decide when, you may not be able to “dodge” the bullets of death and/or the mark of the beast for long! My own personal experience is that I was seriously overweight with huge man boobs, jobless, and probably in the shiest 10% in the world due to those problems! Every time that I wanted to be a Christian, my weight, femineity(natural boobs), infamous shyness, and joblessness always got in the way! I did not wonder how Christians would receive me, but I always feared how pagans of every sort(some in the church) would view me!

    One morning, I was hit with a realization that what if I died or was forced to take the vulgar mark of the beast or die? Here’s what will happen if you don’t know my savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth as your personal savior: you either play hero without Jesus and die and go to hell or you take the mark and (as I can best imagine) face the eternal wrath of God! You may be forced to choose very soon! If this blog is correct, the technology either exists or is almost here for the mark of the beast to be implemented! About 3 or 4 years ago, I watched a documentary on either Discovery or National Geographic(about modern and future surveillance) that showed a guy who had a scanning device planted in him so that he could party for free! Really?! If ever there were an Esau-Jacob bargain, but even more so(your soul in hell for what might be a few years on a deteoriating earth). Still, the documentary proves my point that the technology exists. Plus, all(or almost all) of those technologies mentioned can also be used for terror and fear! Get right with Jesus and guard your soul with your lives!
