KIDS believe their future will be filled with flying cars, teleportation and robots, according to a new poll.
A survey of 1,000 children aged 6 to 10 found that 72 percent named self-charging electric cars as an invention they would like to see, while 51 percent would welcome flying cars.
The study, commissioned by Hyundai, also found that almost one in five (17 percent) would like to travel to space by public transport.
Others hope to witness teleportation, a flying school bus, and robots.
Children also want to travel unnoticed, because an invisibility machine was also on the wish list.
65 percent of children think technology can make the world a better place for crafting and building (59 percent) and learning (56 percent).
While 29 percent believe technology is useful for transportation.
Of the 2,000 adults also surveyed, 51 percent believe that technological developments are essential to drive progress in society, believing that technology is key to success in science, healthcare, business and education.
It also found that although transport was a key area for technological developments, 62 per cent of Brits recognized the role of technology in their personal mobility, with 23 per cent saying it would benefit from technological advances.
There is a clear interest in more sustainable mobility, with 38 percent believing that technology could be used to make transport and mobility more environmentally friendly.
Like their younger peers, robots, flying and autonomous cars are among the technologies that most excited adults, while renewable energy and AI were also high on the agenda.
The study, which examines attitudes towards future technologies, was commissioned by Hyundai as the brand seeks to understand how adults and children perceive mobility solutions such as electric cars and air taxis.
As brands prepare for new innovations like autonomous air taxis, a third of adults envisioned such inventions not being available for at least 20 years.
And three quarters were unaware that some modern electric cars can be used as charging stations to charge other electric vehicles around them and even other important personal technologies.
It also found that nearly four in 10 adults are comfortable with the idea of interacting with robots in their daily lives, and 31 percent are excited by the prospect.
And 47 percent believe they are useful, particularly in the fields of scientific research, healthcare and transportation, as they learn to endure climate extremes and harsh terrain.
When it comes to social progress, adults rate robots higher than children, with 32 percent willing to befriend one, compared to just 24 percent of children.
Perhaps unsurprisingly for children under 12, the most important robot skills were the ability to do chores (55 percent) and homework (47 percent).
Ashley Andrew, Managing Director at Hyundai Motor UK said: “Many of us are intrigued by the potential capabilities of robotics and how this will shape the future of technology.
“Our research shows that society is eager to embrace technology on a number of levels, e.g. B. to support efforts to clean up the environment and provide clean mobility solutions that ultimately drive progress in the way we travel.”
Following the results of the OnePoll studies, people were asked what they think about welcoming technology into their lives.
Expressing their thoughts in a video, attendees experienced the possibilities of robotics for the future, with a surprise appearance by Spot, Boston Dynamics’ robotic dog.
