The Novarrk

The Novarrk was listed in my ‘2035’ news article under my futurist thoughts without being specifically named for personal reasons; however, I did however describe the unique and indistinguishable characteristics of The Novarrk in unmistakable detail since I’m a designer, and a futurist, and an American journalist who is aware of the U.S. Copyright protection that automatically extends to everything that I have written or will write in the future.   

But what is The Novarrk?

The Novarrk is my ‘Artificially Intelligent Bus Design’ which was conceived of well in advance of the year 2005.

The Novarrk is designed to be a fully autonomous self-driving bus which will be capable of self-diagnosis, which means that it will be able to determine what’s wrong with its engine or its doors or its air conditioning system or its fuel system or its electrical system or its wheels or its brakes or its tires etc.

The Novarrk is also designed to operate on all city streets since an onboard interactive map of the Continental USA or of Africa or of Israel or of Italy or of China or of North Korea or of England or of Russia is all that is needed since a backup master map will be held by The All Seeing Eye in The Sky or by the AI Satellite called The Novarrk Diamond.

The Novarrk differs from other buses since it is designed to be dispatched by The Novarrk Diamond in the sky which will possess an independent artificial intelligence of its own, as well as a master problem solving algorithm that will be anticipatory in nature since it will be able to see the entire landscape from its position in space.

My AI Satellite-to-AI Bus-System’will completely eliminate the need for a human dispatcher to come into work whenever he or she is sick since The Novarrk buses will also have a situational problem solving artificial intelligence algorithm, which means that passengers will be able to ask The Novarrk questions about routes, and the weather, and news reports, and traffic reports, and road closures, and upcoming festivals or concerts or sporting events along The Novarrk’s preprogrammed route.  

The passengers will also be able to ask The Novarrk questions about restaurants and medical facilities and schools and shops and libraries and storage facilities and auto repair facilities and bus pass stations and other places along The Novarrk’s route. Passengers will also be sold an age appropriate bus pass while they are on the bus when they have not purchased an electronic bus card in advance, and if the passenger was just released from a medical facility, and is wearing a hospital band or cannot pay the fare, The Novarrk will remember their face, and their name, and will grant them two lifetime free rides without human oversight, however, any free rides above the two free lifetime trips or rides will require a human manager or supervisor to enter the following code HR2+TS.

The aforementioned age appropriate bus passes will be accomplished through means of the sophisticated camera system that The Novarrk will be using to separate the adults from the kids, who will be charged in accordance with the rules of their particular city.

The Novarrk AI based camera system will also separate the handicapped riders from the non-handicapped riders, who will be charged their individual ADA appropriate fare, which will be based entirely upon their disability, which will be perceived by the AI camera system since it will be able to scan the eyes and the entire body of all passengers. 

The battery powered Novarrk that I designed will also use its sophisticated camera system to determine whether or not it should stop for a passenger verses a dog or a shopping cart.

The Novarrk will also use a GPS system and an onboard interactive mapping system to determine its routes, as well as when it should stop for a red light, and for road closures, which will either be uploaded to its GPS system, and to its onboard interactive mapping system in advance or in real time since the police and the fire department and the public works department will be able to communicate with The Novarrk, and also with The Novarrk Diamond, who will send an alternate route to The Novarrk while the human managers observe the AI-to-AI process or interface from their office while communicating with the police or with the fire department or with the public works department.  

The Novarrk is also designed to be a technician assigning and advising system, so if The Novarrk should experience a mechanical malfunction, it will call for another bus to be sent while it troubleshoots the problem, and while it arrives at a solution to the problem while it examines its blueprint, which will have a sensor, and a unique part number, and a trouble code for the faulty part, and for every inch of its operating system, and its frame, and its moving parts.

The faulty part will be ordered by The Novarrk, which means that the part will be waiting for the assigned technician by the time The Novarrk arrives back at its home base or its yard for repair, and if The Novarrk is not drivable, The Novarrk will order its own tow truck since it will be able to fully diagnose itself.

The Novarrk will also have a text based communications system that will allow it to tell the assigned technician which tool or tools will be needed to repair its system since the faulty part, and the tool will have matching serial numbers that will either begin with ‘RP’ for replacement part or with “RT’ for replacement tool.

The ‘RP’ and the ‘RT’ will appear side by side, and if a panel or another item on The Novarrk blueprint has to be removed in order to remove and replace the faulty part; The Novarrk will include the additional ‘RT’ right along with its specific location on The Novarrk blueprint.

The aforementioned text message will be as follows:

***RP4789 RT4789 RT4788 Left Rear Floor Panel Phillips Screw Driver Completion Time 2.5 Hours***  

The assigned technician will have all of the information that he or she will need in order to repair The Novarrk since a 3D picture will also be sent to his or her phone or computer, which will show the exact location of the faulty part, and its part number, and its replacement tool number, and its additional replacement tool numbers, if any, and the estimated time to complete the job.

The Novarrk will also inform the assigned technician about any and all safety concerns while informing him or her about any and all safety equipment that will be required to complete the job.

The Novarrk will also test itself once the part has been replaced, and it will also inform the assigned technician whether or not he or she has missed a screw or a step in the replacement process since it will know.

Let me start off by saying that I also interviewed a certain degree of Baby Boomers between August 2016 and June 2017, and that they also expressed a profound interest in the emerging new technology, however, Generation X and the Millennials and Generation Y displayed the most interest in “The Evolution of Goods and Services.”

The Evolution of Goods and Services consists of gradually moving away from low skilled laborers, and adopting a future that’s filled with Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Robotics.

I also interviewed a group of foreign nationals that were visiting the United States during the same time period, and they were from Africa, and Asia, and Canada, and Europe, and Latin America, and the Middle East, and once I was able to determine that they were from the very same age groups as the Baby Boomers and Generation X and the Millennials and Generation Y, I began the interviews by selecting an equal number of males and females from each of the various date ranges that have been assigned to Generation X and the Millennials and Generation Y and the Baby Boomers.

And after being asked a number of probing questions about The Evolution of Goods and Services, and about the overall impact that they expected artificial intelligence and advanced robotics to have on their individual lives; the males and females, who had previously given it some thought, stated that they would love to live in a world where the AI computers and the robots provide such goods and services as nursing and massages and haircuts and cake baking and clothes manufacturing and designing and dentistry and car repair and trash collection and landscaping and fruit picking and laundry services and bartending and legal services and tax services and policing and color commentary and news broadcasting and music playing like you find on the popular radio shows.  

The males and females also stated that they want a car that is completely designed and manufactured for us humans by an AI robot that is completely autonomous since they are curious to see what the robot will make for us since it will reveal the robot’s true thoughts about us humans just like a child unconsciously reveals his or her true thoughts about his or her mother and father by the kinds of handmade gifts that they decide to give on birthday and especially on Father’s Day.

The results from the Generation X and Millennial and Generation Y and Baby Boomer interviews are listed below right along with one of my futuristic concepts since I belong to one of the aforementioned American groups.   

The Gen Xers that were born between 1965 and 1984, and who were previously considered to be lazy and underachievers even though they had the lowest birth rate of all of the other traceable groups that had come before them and right after the last of them were born, presented themselves as super sharp tech aware individuals that were looking forward to entering restaurants that are partially and entirely run by artificially intelligent robots that are like the ones that were mentioned in my 2035 news article.

The Millennials and Generation Y also echoed the very same sentiment while saying that they seek things that will allow them to spend more time on their phones, and when I asked them what they thought about my idea for a “Single Categorized Universal Phone App” and corresponding computer app that will allow them to pay their bills, and to start their car, and to control all of their appliances, while providing full access to all of their social media accounts, they wanted to hear more, so I explained that the Single-Categorized-Universal-Phone-App and corresponding computer app would be like a magic wand since it would allow the end user to order food at any upscale restaurant of their choosing while also making it possible for them to place orders at large chains like McDonald’s and Burger King and Taco Bell and Del Taco once the technology catches up to my idea since the Single Categorized Universal Phone App and corresponding computer app will also allow the end user and/or subscriber to control miniature and full-sized robots and drones that will perform various tasks for the consumer that will be fully invested in The Evolution of Goods and Services.

I developed the concept for one app that does it all or for a Single Categorized Universal Phone App and corresponding computer app for laptops and desktops and tablets quite some time ago when I first started to observe The Evolution of Good and Services and wanted you to hear it here first since the United States of America is still the King of Idea.     

The aforementioned group which consisted of 12 year olds to twenty-something-year-olds said that President Trump is the only American President that can appreciate an idea like my Single Categorized Universal Phone App and corresponding computer app since he speaks the language of the Millennials and Generation Y and Generation X and the Baby Boomers since he wants the best for all Americans which can be seen in his tweets that inform the very people that freely elected him.

Generation Y also said that they would like a Wi-Fi writing pen that can help them with their homework by speaking the answers to certain math questions and by helping them to spell certain difficult words. They also want the writing pens to have artificial intelligence, and to display certain anime characters on the built-in screen.

The Millennials expressed a desire to experience flying cars and flying busses and flying taxicabs while owning an AI robot that can accompany them everywhere and that they can talk to and that’s hooked up to the internet, so they can have it send messages and photos to Twitter and Facebook. The Millennials also want the AI robot to have movie making technology, so they can produce their own movies and music videos.

The Gen Xers want the AI Airplanes and the AI Satellites and the AI Buses that I described in my 2035 news article since the buses will be completely autonomous while the AI airplanes and the AI satellites will be working with each other and without any interference from the humans.

The abovementioned statements were shared with the Baby Boomers, and upon hearing them they seemed to be instantly transported back to their childhoods, and especially when I told them that I had, had a futuristic dream at the tender age of 5 years old, and that it had involved a planet earth that was filled with millions and millions of talking robots, and that the robots had continued to repair and to rebuild each other and our infrastructure, and that they had continued to do so long after the humans had mysteriously disappeared without a trace.

I also told the Baby Boomers that the fully autonomous robots in my dream had become an enduring testament to the greatness of mankind since they possessed our knowledge and our workmanship, which was witnessed by the civilizations that had visited the planet earth, and that had found it to be completely inhabited by the robots that we had created a million years before we had suddenly disappeared off of the face of the earth just like the dinosaurs and the Mayans before us.

The fully autonomous robots had turned out to be our greatest creation since they had remained behind to tell the story of the men and women that had created them out of the earth.

Cerritos, CA –


In the summers of 1995 and 2005 I conducted a series of time-capsule-interviews that were centered on what we as a species could quite possibly expect to experience in the year 2035. The subjects that I selected for the time-capsule-interviews were college students that were in their twenties when they were first interviewed in 1995. I chose the students since they were studying various subjects that could possibly impact their overall views with respect to the future.

At the very end of the 2005 time-capsule-interviews I will provide the answers that I provided the students after they asked my own views on 2035 since their professor advised them that I am also a futurist.  

The students were not told my own personal views until the last of the 2005 time-capsule-interviews had been concluded. This was done in order to preserve the integrity of the interviews which would have been tainted if I had disclosed my own thoughts about 2035 prior to conducting the interviews. My futuristic views were also kept from the professor since any good journalist knows that he or she cannot disclose his or her own views prior to conducting an interview.

The journalist’s views if he or she should decide to give them must always be seen as an added bonus for participating in the interview. The journalist must also clarify that he or she is not offering his or her opinion as a journalist, but as a private citizen or under his or her  other title which is why I advised the former students in 2005 that I was offering my views on 2035 as a futurist and not as a journalist. This is the essence of 21st Century Journalism.       

Summer of 1995

Carlito was a 22 year old Filipino American who was majoring in religious studies since he wanted to become a priest.

I honestly believe that the people in 2035 will be riding horses and donkeys since the devil will cause a nuclear war that will destroy a great percentage of the Western World and the Middle East and the Philippines since US troops are using our homeland. This will happen because the prophet Daniel tells us so. Revelation also talks about the coming disaster, however, the people won’t listen and this is why I want to become a priest so I can save their souls since Damascus will be the center of contention since the Christians will be being persecuted all around the world right along with the priests who will be the only thing that stands between the devil and the souls of the people.

Andrea was a 24 year old white American who was majoring in nursing since she wanted to become a registered nurse.

I believe the people in 2035 will learn to love one another once they see how Americans have worked together to end aids once and for all. The people in 2035 will also acknowledge the American volunteers that have gone to places like Africa and Haiti in their quest to save lives. The nursing students in 2035 will see the good side of America because we will bring the world’s poor medicine and vitamins and the kinds of free technology that will extend their lives. America will teach the world peace through acts of kindness.

Jake was a 21 year old African American who was majoring in propulsion systems since he wanted to enter the world of space exploration.

I believe that the people who are living in 2035 will have the time of their lives because the United States and Russia and China will collectively colonize Mars and they will call their new countries Unisimar and Russimar and Chinamar since they will be microcosms of the countries that will still exist on the earth. The space tourism industry will absolutely explode since there will be no human on human wars on Mars since each nation will be a nonnuclear nation with no more than 200,000 troops that will only exist for the protection of the humans that will be living on Mars. The conventional armies will be necessary since the scientists on Mars will discover hostile extraterrestrial life forms shortly after the three nations start launching manned space exploration crafts from the surface of Mars. The humans on Mars will also have extremely powerful telescopes that will allow them to see into other galaxies that will be filled with intelligent life forms that will instantly take an active interest in Unisimar and Russimar and Chinamar.  

Jun was a 26 year old Korean American who was majoring in political science since she wanted to enter the world of politics.

I believe that the Korean people that will be living in both North Korea and South Korea will be forced to live very simple lives that will be reminiscent of the unified Korea when it was ruled by kings and queens and crown princes. These conditions will exist in 2035 because the two Koreas will go to war with one another since outsiders will instigate the conflict through arms deals that will be directed at South Korea. I hope to help the two Koreas to rebuild under a single Korean flag despite my parents hatred of North Korea.

Summer of 2005

Carlito ten years later: I still believe that we are heading towards a nuclear war since we went back to Iraq after the 1991 war had concluded which means that we are going to remain in that region and that the prophecy of Daniel will come true. You see people love to call us crazy bible heads, but we are far from crazy because certain laypeople and a handful of priests and pastors alike who were active during the 1980s were using bible prophecy to predict the 1991 Iraq war and to also predict the second war in Iraq, however, these people cannot get any airtime on Fox or CBS or ABC or NBC because the truth must remain hidden underneath stories about celebrities even though the world is deteriorating on a global scale. This is the kind of information that needs to get out since certain people often like to talk about fighting an information war against other humans which simply means that they don’t understand that all of the good people that are upon the earth are fighting the very same information war that the devil started when he rebelled against God. The corrupt are with the devil and we are with God and this is the information war that we have been born into and that will still be fought in 2035 while the humans are openly cursing the leaders from the 1990s and the early to mid 2000s while riding horses and donkeys.

Andrea ten years later: We may not have dealt aids a death blow but we are getting close since we have extended the lives of aids patients. But on another note I am extremely sad that we went to war in Iraq because I had hoped that we would have learned enough from all of the other wars that we have been in and that we would be delivering food and medicine by now instead of bombs that only hurt innocent men women and children. The nursing students in 2035 will be ashamed of us because they will inherit a broken world that is ravaged by disease and hunger.

Jake ten years later: I still believe that Unisimar and Russimar and Chinamar will become a reality, but I also believe that the earth dwellers in 2035 will enter restaurants that will be completely different from the ones that we experience today because the menus will spring up from the table right before they appear in holographic form. The individual restaurant patron will have his or her mind read by the holographic menu while he or she looks over the menu. A water powered drone will then deliver the silverware and the napkins while an even bigger battery powered drone delivers the food. The cashier will be a life sized hydrogen powered robot that will accept all forms of electronic payment including credit cards. The cooks will also be hydrogen powered robots since humans will no longer be needed in most restaurants. The robots will have artificial intelligence so the patrons will be able to have a conversation with them. Plus they will be hooked up to the internet so people will be able to ask them anything. The restaurants will also serve beer and wine which will be delivered by appropriately sized battery powered drones which will have a life span of 25 years.  

Jun ten years later: I still believe that the Korean people in 2035 will be set back technologically due to war since outsiders won’t rest until they start a big war between the two Koreas. I think that the Koreas need to remember their collective history because this is the only thing that can avert war. The two Koreas need to remember their fight against Japan which was unprovoked. The people on both sides of the DMZ want peace with one another and remember how Mexico and other foreign nations sent troops to try to defeat North Korea who fought and fought until the foreign soldiers gave up. Koreans everywhere need to unite or the Koreans in 2035 will be lost to time.

My futurist thoughts on 2035 which were conceived well in advance of 2005

The people living in 2035 will be picked up by buses that will be self-driven and that will be dispatched by satellites that will possess artificial intelligence. The AI satellites will eliminate the need for a human to come into work when he or she is sick. The buses themselves will also have artificial intelligence so passengers will be able to ask the bus questions. Passengers will also be sold age appropriate bus passes right on the bus. This will be accomplished through the camera system that the AI will be using to separate the adults from kids and the handicapped riders from the non-handicapped riders who will be charged their appropriate fare which will be based on their disability.  

The battery powered AI bus will also use cameras to determine when it should stop for passengers as well as a GPS system to determine its routes and when it should stop for red lights and road closures. And if the AI bus breakdowns it will call for another bus to be sent while it troubleshoots the problem. The part will be ordered by the bus and will be waiting for the technician by the time that the bus arrives back at the yard.

The people living in 2035 will also have the limited option to ride in a flying car that will also be controlled by satellites that will have artificial intelligence. This will prevent midair collisions that will be the direct result of people racing through the skies. The cars will be able to hover at a standstill and they will either possess helicopter technology or they will fly like a jet once the wings come out of the body of the car. There will be four sets of wings and only the super-rich or Presidents or world leaders will be able to own one of these advanced automobiles that will drive like a brand new Mercedes Benz. The rest will be for commercial use only just like the flying buses that will be completely powered by battery cells just like the flying cars. This will prevent fuel explosions should the cars or buses happen to crash land. The occupants of the buses and car will be seated inside a protective foam capsule that will look like the inside of an ordinary car or bus. This will save lives during a crash.

The people in 2035 will fly on pilotless airplanes that will be controlled by satellites that will possess artificial intelligence. This will prevent future 911s from happening since human pilots will not be in control of the airplanes. The AI airplanes will deploy a sleeping aerosol during a high jacking which will put the terrorist or terrorists and everyone else to sleep while the satellite guides the plane to safety. The plane will also phone the police who will be waiting with handcuffs. The AI airplane will also commutate with the stewardess onboard the plane. Plus some flights will have AI robots that will serve food and check the vital signs of the passengers and in the event that the AI airplane detects a mechanical problem it will ask the satellite for a safe place to land the battery powered airplane that will be equipped with a foam capsule that will protect the passengers. No explosions will be experienced since fuel will not be used and since the batteries will be in a protective case.         

The aforementioned leaps in technology are achievable within our lifetimes if we only apply ourselves.
