2. You’ll never have to buy groceries again.


Never run out of ice cream again. Not only does this fridge suggest recipes based on what you have in it, it also goes on ahead and orders more food when you’re running low. Thanks fridge!

6. Your laptop will be cooler.


Researchers at GE are working on developing small cooling fans called “Dual Piezoelectric Cooling Jets (DCJ).” Why should you care? The fans have a cooling rate that’s 10x stronger than naturally circulating air, all while being thinner than current fans. Thinner fans = thinner tablets (they’ll probably hover by then, too).

8. Your hospital will know if you're having a heart attack.

It might not be long until a simple bracelet can let you (and more importantly your hospital) know when you’re having a heart attack. Once you get there, connected machines will make the entire experience more efficient.

9. Your car will turn into an airplane at the push of a button.

We know, we know--you’ve heard this one before. But this company’s version may be hitting streets (and skies) soon for just under $300,000. All you’ll need is a pilot’s license, so start studying.

We’re always thinking of the future, too. See how #BrilliantMachines will get us there.
