Getting ready for the ground. Empty Moscow streets and western broomstick flights

Project "ZZ". Future. Close and far. From London to New York - in half an hour. Harry Potter Broom Competition. Getting ready for the earth: instead of skyscrapers, there are skyscrapers. This is the picture of life in the developed countries of the world. It will develop in about fifty years. And what about Russia? But in Russia, only the near future is visible. And it was not some foreign futurologist who designated him, but the local Mr. Navalny. According to the Western press, he changed his strategy: he refused large-scale street protests. Dense crowds of protesting opposition will probably no longer appear on Moscow streets.

We will ride, we will rush on a rocket in the early morning

Roads under water, Quidditch on hoverboards, self-cleaning houses, space hotels, flying buses, mass production of organs using 3D printing, implants that control health ... This is how people will live in 2069 year, according to experts.

A Samsung report stated that events that seem futuristic today will become familiar over the next fifty years.

Forecasts were issued by a group of foreign scientists and futurologists representing various branches of scientific knowledge. Among the forecasters of the future were the president of TechUK, co-chair of the Coding Institute Jacqueline de Rojas, a representative of the Royal Academy of Engineering, Dr. R. Morgan, and other prominent scientists. The co-authors report is called “Samsung KX50: The Future in Focus” (“Samsung KX50: the future is in the lens”).

Among the main points of the speakers, the British edition "Daily Mail" highlighted the following.

By 2069, transport will survive a real revolution. Underwater pipe systems will be used between the UK, mainland Europe "and other regions", where high-speed containers will begin to transport travelers "between some countries in less than an hour."

In order to put an end to traffic jams, as scientists believe, mankind will switch to flying taxis and buses. As for long-distance trips, observer Tim Collins notes in the publication, they will be carried out on "reusable missiles flying at high speed in the upper atmosphere." Travel time between London and New York will be less than thirty minutes.

T. Collins grouped expert forecasts. Here are the top 10 "best predictions" of the future:

1. Underwater lines: a transport system in the form of sealed pipes, the movement of which is carried out in capsules. A link will be established between the UK, Scandinavian countries and mainland Europe. Traveling between distant points of the route will take no more than 1 hours.

2. Dredgers: Skyscrapers, on the contrary. Newfangled houses will "grow" down several floors. This will allow them to withstand earthquakes.

3. Self-cleaning houses: at the touch of a button, houses will “self-clean” when the tenants leave or when they sleep.

4. Space hotels: they will give people the opportunity to spend their holidays in space. Space hotels will revolve around the moon or planets of the solar system, generating their own gravity.

5. 3D-printing of organs: ensuring the replacement of organs for those who need it, and not only them. New bodies will be able to provide "night vision or super speed."

6. Cheap burgers with insects! By 2069, insects will be one of the main sources of dietary protein.

7. Flying buses and taxis. An air taxi and unmanned buses will lift a person above traffic jams.

8. Implants in the bodies will track health.

9. Air Sports: Hoverboard Quidditch Style! (Simply put, flying on a broomstick. Or an electric broom.)

10. Interactive movies and games. New virtual reality: the physical participation of the viewer in action. Tactile suits will create a sense of touch and deceive all five senses.

Ms. de Rojas, co-author of the report, told the reporter that the next fifty years will bring “the greatest technological changes and innovations we have ever seen.”

The British were asked which of the forecasts they would most like to see come true. 63% of respondents said that their choice is self-cleaning houses. At the second and third places were implants for monitoring the state of health and flying vehicles.

So, we note that London and Samsung are preparing for a speedy leap into the future. Apparently, despite Brexit, the UK, the EU, and the United States will soon be a single super-fast highway.

The report does not say anything about the future of Russia. Mentioned are some “other regions” of the globe, nothing more.

However, the Western press still predicted the future of its Russian neighbor. Near future.

Not with your feet, but with your mind

Russians should not take to the streets, according to a Swiss newspaper Tages Anzeiger Zita Affentranger. Of course, this is not about citizens in general, but about citizens of protesters.

The Kremlin "by all means" intends to "prevent new protests in Moscow", and suddenly the "opposition leader Navalny" comes to the aid of the Kremlin. So argues C. Affentranger.

Ilya Yashin, the author further reports, for the fifth time after the "release" was immediately arrested again. “This time, according to police, we are talking about the Moscow demonstration of 3 in August. However, Yashin did not participate in this protest because he was in prison, ”says Affentranger. Another big “mystery,” says his lawyer.

Yashin’s fifth arrest shows: the authorities are again making it clear that they are determined to keep the protest leaders “under control”, the author writes. Protests must be prevented. The pressure, it seems to the journalist, is "starting to act": after a large demonstration in the middle of last month, in which about 50000 participants participated, "everything calmed down."

One of the reasons for this may be that "the opposition leader Alexei Navalny does not call for further mass demonstrations." His people "largely refused to organize protests on social networks." What is going on? C. Affentranger admits that Navalny changed his strategy. He wants his movement to be measured not by number, but by skill, the author suggests.

The number of demonstrators is not the right strategy. A genuine strategy should be aimed at "winning the ruling party in the election." That's where the change of strategy comes from, the author notes. Instead of protesting with their feet, people should choose with their minds. This means the following, Affentranger comments: voters must vote for those candidates who have the best chance of defeating the representatives of the United Russia Kremlin party in the election. And for this, Mr. Navalny created a website where "voters register and then receive the name of the most promising candidate in their constituency before the election."

It is unlikely that any independent candidates will be approved, therefore, most likely, among the candidates who oppose the “parties of the Kremlin” there will be communists. Navalny is ready to look at this deviation through his fingers in order to achieve a greater goal. If someone from the sympathizers of the opposition does not like the candidate, then United Russia is even less attractive. Here is the new Navalny strategy.

The change of strategy caused fierce debate among the Russian opposition. Some people think that this is really the best option after the opposition candidates have been "rejected." But others see this as an ordinary “betrayal of the case and those who were beaten and arrested in shares for fair elections.” Independent political scientists also “sharply criticize” Navalny’s unilateral decision.

Consequently, let us note in conclusion, a change of strategy that reminds other critics of a change of course and even betrayal of ideals promises the Kremlin empty Moscow streets in the near future. Empty from the marching opposition. From onlookers. From police and reporters.

And only with traffic jams in the capital will everything remain the same. Air buses are not planned here yet.

              The truth of life is that modern Russia today is eating what the Great Soviet people created, under the leadership of the Communist Party. And this legacy ends. What can "independent" Russia boast of, Usmanov and Melnichenko's yachts, palaces and billion-dollar states of officials, retirement age 65/60 and lack of free medical care?

          “When I give lectures in America, the audience sometimes cannot understand whether I am optimistic or pessimistic about the future of Russia. “An optimist,” I reply, “because I do not believe in catastrophic scenarios. I do not believe that Russia will break up or that there will be a civil war or a fascist dictatorship. For fascism, Nazism, we need millions of young people who are ready to die and kill in the name of an idea; we need a Hitler youth or a Komsomol of the twenties. Where do we have these millions, where is the idea for which they are ready to go to the mortal battle? Communism, fascism, democracy, the great mother Russia? Unless the last, Russian patriotism, and then only if it is shown on TV that the Russians are being killed on the streets in any of the former Soviet republics. But there are no signs of this, and therefore you will not be carried away by Russian youth with any grandiose idea, they will not follow any great leader, the times of ideological enthusiasm and sacrifice have passed, for Russia this is the past. ”

      Underground houses are too expensive to operate (ventilation, sewage, humidity control). And in the case of the slightest failure, for example, power supply - most of the inhabitants of such a house will be trapped. This is not to mention possible natural disasters.

    This means that in Russia (despite the approval of just these protesters) there are just democratic and free elections, if the opposition themselves decided to gain power and make changes in the life of the country, which again proves everything in Russia with democratic institutions in order, and based on this, all the previous statements of both the protestors (liberdas) and the State Department (with grunts) are complete nonsense that have no meaning ..

      Porridge turned out because those who pushed the author to write this article do not see and do not understand real Russia. Ruble has long been sold to Zapod and lives by its standards, which are alien in the spirit of a true and still living Russia. Whether the buses will fly or not does not matter, the most important is brewing another deep crisis of capitalism, which they are once again trying to solve with the help of technical innovations, in particular universal chipization, as always under the noble pretext of universal recovery of the population, but in fact universal surveillance and possible fooling the population for the sake of the ruling elite.

        The first part of the article is two (maybe three) in one: a method of distraction and a manual for a new plan of action for the "opposition". Question: does the VO website remain a politically neutral military review, or a political tribune for those dissatisfied with the government?

    Flying taxis and expressways were the first to predict even at the dawn of steam and electricity, things are still there. No, of course it will, someday. There are tactile suits, while expensive and so-so, a dead end branch. Most likely, neural interface technologies will be developed with direct broadcast of a signal to the brain. Like in the anime SAO, Accelerated World or movies 13th floor, Nirvana. The first cars are already there, but working models are also far away. Bye. Organ printing. Development is progressing, BUT!, slowly, very slowly. I would like to be quicker. Implantable health sensors? What the hell? Perhaps from the mid-80s, experiments were carried out and everything ran into a purely financial and domestic obstacle. Nobody wants to spend money on something that is becoming obsolete by the time of serial production. It's not a mobile or scribe. It's just so don’t push into the closet, you still need to get it out of the body. Everyone is waiting for a breakthrough in remote monitoring. Type of additional option in the smartphone. Orbital hotels? Well, I don’t ask, I don’t know. I don’t understand the current tourists. What kind of buzz hanging out in a tin can and staring at the porthole, paying 250 lyam green for it. And Navalny just got bogged down. Something, but the authorities can let the people blow the whistle. How many there are and how many there will be. And those who at least try to pose a threat, an unenviable fate awaits for which they are not ready and do not want to be ready. Fighters on the couch and keyboard can only pour slop and call for attacks on children on the net. The titmouse, one might say, got off with a slight fright.

      No, this will definitely not happen, and there will not be any cyberpunk-style uglies either, read books in the "Commonwealth Worlds" genre (a lot of slag, but there are also good ones), the main emphasis on understanding the interrelationships of the terms there: neurointerface, neurocommunicators, neural networks, databases, bio-insights, merging of minds.
      It's just that society needs labor productivity per unit of resource costs, and not "virtuality", and at the moment the most expensive production is the production of qualified / specialized people to perform work in a particular area and it is the above described elements that lead to a multiple reduction in the production cost of this resource.
      1. shinobi
        shinobi 5 September 2019 04: 30
        It will be, believe me. The first demonstration models already exist, and the military set to work. Labor productivity is a matter of ten. The point is to reduce the response time to external information flows. The reaction of the nervous system is always inhibited by the muscular response and the neurointerface is designed to remove this brake. The roughest analogy : we see the target, the brain gives the command to the finger, it presses the button, the weapon shoots. The response limit is 0,25 seconds for trained people. With a neural interface, the chain is shortened, the brain commanded, the weapon fired. What will be the speed of the brain-machine reaction until no one even takes to predict.

          It is because of the erroneous understanding of what you voiced that I suggested you read fiction, namely, more modern fiction, and not from the times of the USSR. In short, a fighter is not a rimbaud who rushes out in the open field with a bunch of machine guns in his hands, and in a fight the fighter does not act alone in itself because there is a sectorial division of attention, because of these nuances, the need for an extremely minimal response time is extremely minimal. Here you are sure to ask the question: what then is the most important thing on the battlefield? and here they’ll answer that it’s

          At first: "experience and skills" such as camouflage on the ground, movement in the forest / suburb / city, the experience of storming, assault, the experience of handling weapons, not only cleaning and shooting, but also maneuvering in a theater of war / TBD, experience of interaction with other units and families And all this is just given by the neural interface and databases loaded into the brain, just imagine the experience of thousands of the best military men is unloaded from their brains, combined, processed and loaded by millions of "office plankton" and now you already have millions of professional military personnel capable of acting almost as a single whole. (About "almost" will be further.)

          Secondly: "processing the tactical situation in real time". Imagine there is a squad for an assault, the first suppresses the enemy, the second incapacitates, the third, fourth and fifth conduct control, and all this is by running across the intersection without a single word or gesture, about all kinds of possibilities of shooting through walls or help from a kilometer range from another house and another squads, I won't say anything at all And all this thanks to a 3D map, a digital analogue of a real battlefield, where all opponents and allies are marked in real time, and in addition, their range of fire and maneuver are calculated. And all this is exactly what neurocoms, neural networks, AIs and the fusion of minds give.

            My dear, I gave a "rough example" to get into the details of technology, this is the first. Second, the human brain is not a computer, but rather an analog machine and the fast recording of experience in it will rather remain fiction. I took examples from science fiction for ease of understanding average reading layman, this is the third. For you, I suggest, if you have already climbed into the jungle, pay attention to what the technology developers say about this
