3 new technologies may be launched in 2020, which one are you optimistic about?

2020-01-10 | Broken Science original |

Every few years, there will be some new technologies to subvert everything people know.

Internet, social media, smartphones, and many other innovative technologies have revolutionized our daily lives, including how to communicate, how to work, and even how to entertain.

Also, technology has never stopped moving forward.

Maybe one day, the plots such as momentary movement, robot housekeeper, time travel, etc. will happen in our real life.

No one can predict when these goals will be achieved in the future, but new technologies will always appear and guide us step by step towards the ultimate goal.

Let's take a look, what are the most promising inventions in 2020? Which one will you pay for?

I. Plastic becomes a fuel to solve the problem of plastic pollution.

Plastic is notoriously difficult to degrade, it is the most one of the many waste products produced by human beings, and the one that has heard the most pollution this year.

It is difficult to degrade and accumulates so quickly that our landfills and the ocean are almost flooded with plastic.

In order to solve environmental problems, we often adopt plastic recycling, but ordinary plastic recycling is expensive and inefficient, plus not all plastics can be recycled, so scientists have been researching new solutions,Such as culturing bacteria that can digest plastic.

Now scientists have new plans.

It is well known that plastic is usually made from petroleum and other fossil fuels, so scientists believe that plastic may have another useful path in the near future.

It is reported that in view of the fact that the world's fossil fuels will eventually run out, scientists have developed a reaction device that uses heat, pressure and water to reduce plastic to more basic elements, which was originally used toRaw materials for making plastics.

The finished product becomes the raw material, then the raw material can be made into the finished product again, so recycling and recycling can fundamentally solve the plastic pollution.

The ultimate goal of this reaction device is to use plastic instead of energy. In the future, it can no longer rely on petroleum at all, but it is not yet possible to achieve this goal.

In spite of this, this device can recycle plastic again and again, which is currently not possible with most plastic recycling methods.

Second, the smart needle can detect cancer tissue in an instant

Cancer is the most helpless problem for human beings.

Currently, most cancers are discovered relatively late. Unless you have a family history of a specific cancer, your doctor may occasionally examine you, otherwise, generally, only problems will be found.

If you find that you have symptoms of suspected cancer, you usually need to have a biopsy and then send it to the laboratory, and the test results will be known after one week.

Is there a better way?

Scientists believe that the refraction of light by cancerous tissue and healthy tissue is different. Based on this, smart needles have been developed.

The working method of the smart needle is to irradiate light to the relevant tissue, and then quickly calculate the refraction of the light, and determine whether the tissue is sick or healthy according to the refraction of the light.

This only takes a few seconds and does not need to undergo a biopsy.

Most importantly, smart needles can reduce medical costs.

We know that surgery and medical treatment are expensive, so early detection and early treatment will not only lessen the suffering but also less money.

With smart needles to detect cancer immediately, doctors can make treatment plans faster, and the sooner they can be found, the better.

The presence of smart needles can also make cancer screening more routine, or add it to a normal physical examination package, so the cancer will not easily deteriorate to the point where it is difficult to treat.

III. The battery of electric cars will only get better and better

Electric vehicles are becoming more and more common, and fuel vehicles are gradually being banned, but at present, the biggest obstacle that hinders the development of electric vehicles is the battery.

Electric cars on the market today are generally labeled as 400 and 500, but in reality due to temperature, battery degradation and other issues, it is often not possible to achieve the maximum mileage, not only that, charging also often takes several hours, once youYour car is dead, you may have to wait to charge it.

but two new technologies are in progress.

First, a new technology shortens the charging time to 10 minutes.

The working principle is to increase the temperature of the battery during charging. Researchers have found that this method makes the charging response faster. Most importantly, this does not degrade the battery at all, and the battery life remains the same.

At the same time, it is reported that a Swiss company will develop a new type of electric vehicle battery that can travel 600 miles, or nearly 1,000 kilometers on a single charge. Such a performance is unmatched by ordinary gasoline vehicles.

This research is still in progress, and no battery samples have been seen so many people are skeptical about this project.

Nevertheless, it is still the trend to make more efficient and larger capacity batteries. There is no doubt that electric vehicle batteries will only get better and better, and everything will take time to verify.
