BRITONS have predicted what role technology could play in our lives in twenty years time and some of their suggestions are chilling.
YouGov surveyed 2,000 people to kick-start London Technology Week 2016 and most participants identified Healthcare as the area that will be most effected by technology.
Just over 60 per cent of people who took part in the survey think doctors’ appointments will be held via virtual reality rather than in person, the Daily Mail reported.
Meanwhile over half the people believe that 3D printers will be used to create human organs so patients in need of a transplant could potentially avoid waiting for a donor.
A large amount of interviewees say the world’s first human cloned baby is likely to have been born by the time 2036 arrives.
But people also thought technology could change other aspects of our lives, not only in the way we receive healthcare.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “Tech-savvy Londoners welcome new digital advances that are going to revolutionise the way that we live and it is crucial that we harness those ideas to help the capital work even better as a city.”
The survey also revealed that many anticipate new ways for people to access the internet and communicate.

As many as 57 per cent of interviewees think people will be able to wear clothing that is connected to the internet.
And just under half of those who took part think communication devices will be embedded in the body.
It seems that artificial intelligence could even become a work colleague, as 23 per cent said they think the first artificial intelligence machine could serve on the board of big companies.
Travel could also be blasted into a new realm according to some people, as 37 per cent think commercial space flights could launch at major airports.
