Nearly all of us living today will witness many things "heretofore thought impossible," including, perhaps, androids that are eerily close to humans. Other wonders could include radically extended healthy human lifespans, robust artificial intelligence, and, of course, desktop molecular manufacturing.
That last one is most likely to arrive earliest. We expect that the world will have to deal with the transformative and disruptive consequences of advanced nanotechnology no later than 2020, and quite possibly several years sooner.
