With every passing year, technological advances are reaching more
godlike dimensions—enabling humans to move about, communicate,
and heal ourselves in previously unimaginable ways. As new
technologies and applications arise, how will we cope with the effects
of their power? What price will we pay for cheating death, creating
life, and genetically altering living beings—including ourselves? As
we spend more time alone and in virtual worlds, will what divides us
grow more powerful than what unifies us? With this study, we seek to
understand people’s perceptions and expectations of various aspects
of technology in order to gain a clearer glimpse of what is to come.
