So that is 27? If I knew that , I'd probably be writing sci-fi ;) To think of it, I have problems with coming up with 3 total and am not even sure they qualify as invention to be invented. Wireless electricity, AI chat bots indistinguishable from humans, and biomarkers for mental disorders.

How long since anything really new was invented anyway. I think you can pretty well trace nearly everything back to the 1950s or earlier.

How wrong can you be ....have you not been paying attention to the digital world? The integrated circuit alone is a game changer, OLED screens, IC lenses ( just recent ), Hyperloop, self driving cars, 3d printing, composites, the list is very long even in the 21st century.

•••

OP
that's way too steep a goal ....just 3 inventions with some thought around them would be a challenge.

Reversing aging is a big one and might be real in the 2020s ( see NMN )

Graphene has a huge role in many many fields that is hard to see ( like lasers early on )

Fusion is always just over the horizon but might be within 20 years now.

Clumping magnetic cat litter, so you can clean out the box with a strong magnet.

Later, Cats that clean out their own litter box

Still later, cats that don't need a litter box. Yes, I'm litteral minded.

I sure wish someone would develop a fix for most back pains.

A huge one will be direct feeding of info into our eyes, which will come quicker than direct into our brains, which could take a long time, depending on how 'direct.' I could see some kind of contraption that could stimulate the brain such that it perceives sounds or something visible, but the info would still flow into the brain in the normal way. Having a truly direct info transmission, where the info comes to you like a memory, isn't going to happen all that soon. Even the more crude inputs could make for some serious augmentation of our thinking processes. I can easily see a device that you keep with you all the time that absorbs everything you see and hear and then aids in memory.

Such devices better have extreme security, hacking someones brain-augmentation device is a frightening prospect. It's also a fantastic way to get into one of those 'and hilarity ensued' situations.

ICs: I was using IC logic gates in 1967 and they'd been around a fair while by then (Lab Assistants didn't get to play with the latest toys!)

OLED screens: André Bernanose and co-workers at the Nancy-Université in France made the first observations of electroluminescence in organic materials in the early 1950s.

IC lenses: Not sure what you mean by this - the name seems to cover a multitude of things from soft contact lenses to fancy lights for buses.

Hyperloop: Russian professor Boris Weinberg (ru) offered a vactrain concept in 1914 in the book Motion without friction (airless electric way). He also built the world's first model of his proposed transport in Tomsk Polytechnic University in 1909.

Self Driving Cars: "American designer and futurist Norman Bel Geddes mated the Autobahn vision with the sorts of electronic speed and collision control systems common to railroads. His spectacular Futurama ride for General Motors at the 1939 World’s Fair also imagined trench-like lanes that would keep cars apart in their own “tracks.” The idea was to drive to the freeway normally, then engage the automatic systems and kick back until your exit."

3D Printing: The first published account of a printed solid model was made by Hideo Kodama of Nagoya Municipal Industrial Research Institute in 1982. [Only 35 years ago - so one to you there.]

Composites: Plywood ~3400 BC Mesopotamia. Fiberglass: "In 1935, Owens Corning introduced the first glass fiber, fiberglass."

And many, many more - my favourite pastime is studying the history of technology.

They had computers with human level intelligence back in the 19th century.

Is a lot of this not a bit like saying we can't have the calculator as an invention because the abacus?

After all, everything needed to create the WWW was invented a long time ago, but the WWW is still probably the most influential development of any of our lifetimes.

Cs: I was using IC logic gates in 1967 and they'd been around a fair while by then (Lab Assistants didn't get to play with the latest toys!)

Borderline 50s as the patent was 1959 and application a while out.

OLED screens: André Bernanose and co-workers at the Nancy-Université in France made the first observations of electroluminescence in organic materials in the early 1950s.

that is not invention - that is fundmental science...
This is invention

Universal Display Corporation (UDC) is a developer and manufacturer of organic light emitting diodes (OLED) technologies and materials as well as provider of services to the display and lighting industries. It is also an OLED research company. Founded in 1994, the company currently owns or has exclusive, co-exclusive or sole license rights with respect to more than 3,000 issued and pending patents worldwide for the commercialization of phosphorescent based OLEDs and also flexible, transparent and stacked OLEDs - for both display and lighting applications. Its phosphorescent OLED technologies and materials are licensed and supplied to companies such as Samsung, LG, AU Optronics CMEL, Pioneer, Panasonic Idemitsu OLED lighting and Konica Minolta.


In addition to OLED you have Texas Instruments DLP patent driving many theatre and home projectors.

IC lenses: Not sure what you mean by this - the name seems to cover a multitude of things from soft contact lenses to fancy lights for buses.

I'll give you that but generally an invention is something useable not a "concept"

Self Driving Cars: "American designer and futurist Norman Bel Geddes mated the Autobahn vision with the sorts of electronic speed and collision control systems common to railroads. His spectacular Futurama ride for General Motors at the 1939 World’s Fair also imagined trench-like lanes that would keep cars apart in their own “tracks.” The idea was to drive to the freeway normally, then engage the automatic systems and kick back until your exit."

again concepts are not "inventions" in the sense of useable technology.
While there have been a number of approaches to roadway modification ...autonomous vehicles is current as they are able to navigate on their own ...
The Grand Challenge by DARPA was hilarious in the first stages

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DARPA_Grand_Challenge

Fully autonomous vehicles have been an international pursuit for many years, from endeavors in Japan (starting in 1977), Germany (Ernst Dickmanns and VaMP), Italy (the ARGO Project), the European Union (EUREKA Prometheus Project), the United States of America, and other countries.


Though efforts have escalated significantly in the last five years, autonomous cars are not a new concept. Initial research can be traced back all the way to the 1920s when Houdina Radio Control demonstrated a radio controlled car in front of the New York public. In 1939, Futurama depicted cars which could use embedded systems in and under roadways to guide themselves. Later, during the 1960s, several universities started active research on autonomous cars technology with The Ohio State University and Stanford University being pioneers, though almost all the research at the time was focused on modifying roadways to guide autonomous cars. The 1980s saw the change of focus from modifying road systems to improving cars to be autonomous irrespective of road conditions.


3D Printing: The first published account of a printed solid model was made by Hideo Kodama of Nagoya Municipal Industrial Research Institute in 1982. [Only 35 years ago - so one to you there.]

What I would like to see invented are electronic devices that don't fall apart if I so much as approach them. (I generate ridiculous amounts of static electricity - measured at up to 200,000 volts [7 cm sparks] - things like touch screens just tend to self destruct unless they - and myself - are well earthed.)
