Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Transportation capability changes the way we live. I would claim that advancements which make travel faster, or more efficient will change the world in which we live.

Another advancement with disruptive possibility is the atomic computer. Instead of computing 1 task at a time, these machines are able to draw on the atom to split attention to multiple tasks.
A third advancement that will disrupt our lives are housed, mobile or stationary, farms. This advancement can bring food nearer to cities, cutting transportation costs and minimizing the use of land for agriculture.
Weather control.
Global internet networks that are never down.
solar panels that are clean in production and absorb 50%<X of solar energy received.

    Mobile internet ? A big yes in my book. I see so many people glued to their smart phones it's amazing they can do anything else. They do it driving where your focus should be most importantly be ON THE ROAD. It also takes their attention away from the situation and when you try to get their attention it's "Hold on a sec, I'm in the middle of something". I've seen this in lots of place like when a waiter may come to take their order and they brush the waiter off. I feel it will only get worse as time goes on. I see it where kids in school would rather be on their device rather that pay attention. In a lot of schools in my area these devices are banned but the kids still use them. They text test answers back and forth and that brings down the quality of education.. Forgive my ranting but I feel there is a time and place or mobile internet, just not 24/7 because it's there. I remember a while back of a doctor who was online either booking or rescheduling his flights DURING a surgical procedure.. I would not want to be that patient.
