12 technologies Pakistan must acquire

Importing emerging Technologies that Pakistan must acquire is the only way to get decent productivity grades in the World’s roster. These technologies can then be localized and subsequently built upon to solve Pakistan’s most intractable problems of job creation, security, food, education, healthcare, low-cost & competitive products; environment protection, and governance. Technologies Pakistan must acquire are:-

Medical Diagnosis Tri-Corder

The first one is the medical diagnosis Tricorder, which can check a patient’s blood pressure, blood oxygen, heart rate, temperature, and breathing, as well as diagnose 12 different diseases on the spot including diabetes, Hepatitis.

Micro Agricultural Drones

Micro Agricultural Drones with their airborne camera can take extensive pictures of a farm and can point out unhealthy areas of crops, irrigation problems, pest infections, soil issues, and crop layout. The same drones can also be used as delivery mules in urban settings as well. Military applications are endless.

Invitro Meat

Although InVitro meat may not gel with our conservative population meat grown in labs has immense export potential.

High Capacity-Light Weight Batteries

High-capacity, lightweight batteries are very useful to make the best of renewable energy in Pakistan, as villages would be able to enjoy solar & wind energy at night as well.

The Luci Solar Lantern lasts for between 6 to 12 hours, ideal for off-grid communities. It’s collapsible for being used on the go and is waterproof and shatterproof.

Carbon Nanotubes and Carbon Fibre

Carbon Fiber, Carbon Nanotubes, and Graphene have exceptional uses. Tesla is developing graphene batteries that would extend cars’ range by 100%; carbon fiber can now be shaped and would be used for vehicle bodies due to its strength, lightweight, and abundant recycling potential. Carbon nanotubes are being used for electrical storage in superconductors. Graphene is to be used for building a lift to the moon.

Nano Sensor with Internet of Things

Nano sensors and the Internet of Nano things would work perfectly with 40 Million Pakistanis already connected to 3G/4G, and increasing rapidly. This sensor network sending data from inside the body and all around would be able to suggest prescription drugs, appropriate seeds, real-time information, and bad-guy monitoring. The military applications are quite obvious. It would improve governance tremendously. Coupled with Artificial Intelligence this network can run complex war tactics when needed.

Interesting Technologies

Some honorable mentions are:-

  • Recyclable thermoset plastics to cut landfill waste
  • 3D printing from human organs to homes.
  • 2D materials for air and water filters
  • Wearables, camouflage, and batteries
  • Self-driving cars,
  • faster and miniaturized computers,
  • Nanorobots in our blood to kill disease,
  • Voice over IP to replace our phones,
  • reharvesting rare earth metals from garbage.

With the new government, a real fight for Pakistan is coming.
