6 Technologies That Have Been "Just Two Years Away" Forever

6 Technologies That Have Been "Just Two Years Away" Forever


It's almost here, guys! Flying cars! Jetpacks! Hoverboards! Or so we've been promised. It seems these technologies are always just two years away. At least that's what the media keeps telling us.


Today we're looking at promises for the near-future that haven't quite arrived yet. We want so desperately to believe that they're just over the horizon! But we really wish that the horizon would stop moving on us.


6 Technologies That Have Been "Just Two Years Away" Forever


Flying Cars


Every six months or so, the media run stories about how YOUR FLYING CAR IS ALMOST HERE! Just two more years, they promise. Just two more years and you'll be flying like George Jetson. Except those two years keeps getting pushed back.


Flying cars have been a futurist staple since the 1920s. And we've even had real "flying cars" since the 1950s. Over the last half decade people like Paul Moller and companies like Transition have kept promising that soon they will become a mainstream reality. But until half of America has a Flying DeLorean in the garage, we're not ready to call this one realized.




6 Technologies That Have Been "Just Two Years Away" Forever


Hoverboards


We're living in 2015 — the year Marty and Doc traveled to in Back to the Future Part II . And last year was a big year for hoverboards. We had the Funny or Die hoverboard hoax. And then a company in California promised that their Hendo hoverboard was coming soon.


The only problem? The Hendo hoverboard is little more than a PR stunt for the inventors to raise money for their real goal: Levitation in architecture for earthquake-proofing. That's right. Even if the Hendo wasn't incredibly noisy, difficult to control, and only worked on special surfaces, we'd still be waiting for quite a while for that hoverboard to become mainstream. Don't get your hopes up just yet.




6 Technologies That Have Been "Just Two Years Away" Forever


Robot Butlers


The promise that we'd one day have a humanoid robot butler is older than the word robot itself. Who wouldn't want their very own Rosey the Robot to cook meals for them or pick up their dirty socks? I know I would! But humanoid robots are hard work. They still have incredible obstacles ranging from battery life to problems with just general dexterity.


Agencies like DARPA and companies like Google have made tremendous strides in humanoid robot technology. But before we invite robots into our homes to help feed us salty snacks, we're going to have to make sure they're a bit more delicate than the robot pictured above.




6 Technologies That Have Been "Just Two Years Away" Forever


Jetpacks


The jetpack is one of those technologies that, much like the flying car, we've had since midcentury. The only problem? Just like the flying car, it's tremendously wasteful.


Sure, you can zip around for about 30 seconds. And it looks really really cool! But we have yet to devise an energy source to propel a person into the air that won't run out after a mere minute. Oh, not to mention that whole safety thing.




6 Technologies That Have Been "Just Two Years Away" Forever


Virtual Reality


There's no technology that ebbs and flows quite like virtual reality. Unlike the flying car, various versions of VR headsets have actually come to market in a semi-serious way. But can they achieve mainstream success?


Facebook's purchase of Oculus gives many hope that ubiquitous VR is just around the corner. And I hope they're right! But consider me a skeptic until we have a way to make those headsets a bit more... compact.




6 Technologies That Have Been "Just Two Years Away" Forever


Driverless Cars


The driverless car has a long, painful history. We've been waiting on this one since at least the 1930s. But making a fully autonomous driverless car that's safe and reliable is incredibly difficult. Just ask the people at DARPA who were trying to make one at a secret government facility back in the 1980s.


Thanks to companies like Google, the DARPA Challenge, and just about every car company in the world, the fully automated driverless car feels as close as ever. But promises of "just two more years" feel a bit premature. We've nearly cracked this nut. But sadly we have quite a while before the completely driverless car becomes mainstream. Until then the only thing we can say for sure is that we'll see plenty of articles promising that the driverless car is "just two years away!"




I legitimately hope I'm wrong about every single one of these. I'd love a robot butler right now! And driverless cars really would be neat! But despite our popular conception of technological development, progress is painfully slow. That's just the way things work.


Tech's march through history is incremental and rarely materializes precisely as it was envisioned. That's the fun of the future! But it's also what makes it so incredibly frustrating.

What Is a Heat-Not-Burn Cigarette and Can It Help You Quit?

What Is a Heat-Not-Burn Cigarette and Can It Help You Quit?


The Next Big Trend in vaping is actually a very old idea: cigarettes that heat tobacco to produce an inhalable aerosol, but never reach the point of combustion, thus avoiding that sketchy part of smoking where you light something on fire and suck the smoke into your lungs.


How is that any different than the e-cigarettes we've come to know and love/hate? Because heat-not-burn cigs contain tobacco, not just flavored liquid nicotine, so it's much closer to the experience of smoking a regular cigarette, just without the smoke, smokey smell, and (hopefully) all the carcinogens. Not bad if your New Year's resolution is to kick smoking. Although as with all too-good things, there are caveats.


What Is a Heat-Not-Burn Cigarette and Can It Help You Quit?


iQOS concept images from Philip Morris


Right now, two big tobacco companies are developing "smokeless" burn sticks. Philip Morris, of Marlboro fame, is selling its Marlboro HeatStick in Italy in Japan, with the goal of bringing it to the U.S. in 2016 at about $6 a pack.


What Is a Heat-Not-Burn Cigarette and Can It Help You Quit?


The HeatStick, which looks like a regular cigarette, is heated inside a battery-powered, pen-like device called iQOS (pronounced "eye-coze"). The sticks are heated to a point just below combustion—so up to 660 degrees F—which produces a nicotine-infused vapor that you inhale through a mouthpiece. The holder can heat about 20 sticks per charge.


Meanwhile, RJ Reynolds—maker of Camel, Kool and Winstons—is launching a heat-not-burn product called Revo in February, first in Wisconsin at a similar price point, and then expanding from there if it sells.


What Is a Heat-Not-Burn Cigarette and Can It Help You Quit?


Unlike the HeatStick, the Revo uses an actual flame, which lights a carbon tip that heats foil-wrapped tobacco until it evaporates into a flavored vapor.


Each cig lasts about five minutes, then you let it cool down and throw it out. It emits just whimper of smoke, and also doesn't cause that telltale smoker smell.


While you can't find either of these in the U.S. yet, the technology is nothing new. The Marlboro HeatSticks improves on a heat-not-burn product called the Accord, which launched in 90s and totally flopped.


What Is a Heat-Not-Burn Cigarette and Can It Help You Quit?


And Revo is essentially the exact same product as Reynolds' Eclipse smokeless cigarette, which was developed in the 90s, hit the market in 2003 and fizzled out within four short years. It's got a new name, look, and marketing scheme, but the concept is unchanged.


Indeed, big tobacco firms—which realized as early as the freaking 50s that cigarettes were killing us—have been developing technology to strip out the combustion part of the equation for decades. Now, the cigarette makers are hoping that vaping's explosive popularity and an increasingly anti-smoking public opinion is a sign the time is ripe to give it another go.


But can the gimmick actually help you quit? Is it even safe? The short answer is, we don't know yet. The longer answer is as controversial, scientifically murky and politically complex as the heated debate on the health effects of e-cigarettes.


As of now, barring further research, the general consensus about heat-not-burn cigs is similar to vaping products: It stands to reason that not burning the tobacco is less bad for you than burning it, but it's maybe probably still bad for you. How much less, we're not sure. Is there some unknown consequence that's just as dangerous as smoking butts? Maybe. Is there a public health impact associated with products that encourage the habit at all, and potentially get a new generation hooked on nicotine? Sure. On the other hand, if a new product can get people to quit that otherwise would stay addicted, that's hard to argue with.


The current research is even more preliminary. A recent New York Times article sums it up:



The first study, conducted in 2013 in Poland, showed that levels of some of the most toxic contaminants in tobacco smoke were substantially lower in users of the iQOS heat-not-burn device than in smokers, though they were somewhat higher than in those who abstained. That study, however, lasted only five days. Scientists have not yet published results from a second study, which involved 160 people and lasted three months, company officials said. A third study, which is expected to last six to 12 months, has yet to begin, they said.



Looking back isn't too reassuring either. Not only was the Eclipse never proven to be less harmful than combustibles, Reynolds was actually sued for making those claims in the first place. The industry has since moved away from calling heat-not-burn products "safer cigarettes" and is hedging with terms like "reduced risk" or "less lethal."


It's also worth noting that tobacco companies have an obvious reason to introduce a cigarette alternative that still contains, you know, tobacco, that has everything to do with money and nothing to do with health. Until firms can get the FDA to sign off on a health claim, the smoke-free, smell-free angle is how the companies will be marketing its shiny new wares.


What Is a Heat-Not-Burn Cigarette and Can It Help You Quit?


That said, U.S. tobacco isn't the only one developing portable tobacco vaporizers. If the heat-not-burn cigs sound a lot like the slate of vape pens already on the market that heat loose-leaf tobacco or more likely, weed, it's because it's basically the same thing.


So if you're trying to ween yourself off smoking in 2015, you could try battery-powered vapes like the popular Ploom Pax to heat tobacco into a smokeless vapor. But you're better off skipping the tobacco altogether.
