Most speculative potential applications

This article is speculative. It covers topics that are not straightforwardly derivable from current knowledge. Take it with a grain of salt. See: "exploratory engineering" for what can be predicted and what not.

(Warning: this page contains highly speculative information.)
previous: further improvement at technology level III

Some things can fundamentally only be done in meso- to macroscopic size scales. Not at micro- or nanoscales.
Those things will also be improvable by APM but since complex products composed out of a multitude of advanced AP metamaterials are already speculative,
technologies based on their interplay are even more vague.

Applications which make heavy use of electronic optic magnetic and other non mechanical physical properties will
require a lot of scientific investigation to make less vague predictions (see: Non mechanical technology path).

Some random mix of ideas

  • solid state earth core probes -- this one probably takes the cake from all the ludicrous ideas here

  • Nanomedicine - A relevant book - [1]

Even further ahead there might (or might not) lie a zero sum situation - again. Warning! you are moving into more speculative areas..

Ultra large scale stuff


geoengineering and
geoengineering meshes including:


Regarding the gas (and ice) giants:


  • complete conversion of matter of larger scale asteroids to something something ???
  • Some large scale mass relocation projects for something something ???

Just for fun

Finally and most importantly the cost for an turboencabulator (wikipedia) will be brought down quite significantly. Here's a video.
