What kind of technologies will be making headlines in 30 years? Physicist, futurist and well-known media figure Michio Kaku has some ideas about that, including thought-controlled computers, smart wallpaper, driverless cars and printable organs.

Smart objects in your bathroom can give you a complete medical every time you take a shower, and internet connected contact lenses will let you surf the internet anywhere (while also pointing out the objects you are about to walk into presumably).

Anyway, while you’re waiting for these technological leaps, here’s a video of Michio in action:
