Decade in Preview: The Youthful Vision

These experts, most under 13, consult their imaginations to foretell the 20-teens.

Sure, the last decade didn’t get such a great rap; recessions, wars, and massive unemployment tend to do that. The question remains, though: What can we expect in the next 10 years? Instead of asking the usual experts, we wanted the dirt from those with the best imaginations – young people (that’s anyone born after 1985). We recently e-mailed queries to parents and teachers asking what their charges predicted. Some forecasts were quite gloomy. But at least we’ll finally have money trees.

Read the full article here but below are a few examples:

  • I think in 10 years there will be a device that makes monkeys talk to you in English. It will be the next big hit in the U.S.
  • I think in the next decade the world will have too much technology and everyone will be attached to it. They won’t go outside and play with their friends.
  • I think that in the next decade, scientists will start to make prosthetic lungs and other organs. I also think Apple will make at least five more products, a genius will be born, NASA will make plans for a habitable colony on the moon, the Hubble Space Telescope will find a new galaxy, and more efficient light bulbs will be made. Finally, I think heat lasers will be used in warfare.
  • I think presidents will only have one year and one year only to live in the White House with fame. So yearly people get a chance to vote. I don’t think there will be a flying car, which is just unreasonable.
