WIRED'S Predictions for Bots, Blockchain, Crispr, and More


Sometimes the future shows up so fast it hits us in the face, like a brick wall in a VR headset.

But either way, the future is coming, and we should be ready. In the following pages we lay out a series of predictions, starting with some changes that are immediately upon us. Then, looking down the road, we get ever-bolder in our prognostications, year by not-so-far-off year. Hackers who disable power grids and detonate gas pipelines have been the villains of popular cyberparanoia for decades.
