In this modern era where the development of technology is very fast, technology finally affects human life. There is even the most terrifying technology in the world that can be misused for evil.
Yup, besides having a good side, misuse of technology will also make it a scary object, if used by the wrong party and for irresponsible interests.
The 6 Scariest Technologies in the World
So, what are the 6 scariest technologies in the world? Here is an explanation of 6 of them.
1. Face scanner technology in smartphones
Face detection technology on smartphones actually has a good impact, for example for a better level of security, and of course, it can be faster when you want to open a locked smartphone. However, you also have to think broadly before you actually want to use this technology.
According to Brad Smith, the current president of Microsoft, the facial scanner system on smartphones is considered to have more capabilities when compared to government surveillance in certain countries.
This threatens someone’s privacy, and even worse, when data about your face is obtained by someone who is not responsible, there is a risk of being misused for personal gain.
2. Human NeuroRegulation Technology

Sophisticated technology today is not able to regulate nerves optimally. However, it is possible that in the future technology will be able to improve and control the human mind.
This will be very scary, considering that when we are able to control the mind, then someone can “enter” into the human mind, which can create ideas and thoughts that are not from that person.
Finally, this makes us unable to distinguish between the results of our subconscious thoughts and the results of the manipulation of other people’s minds.
When you’re in a crowd, try to pay attention to some parents who are even more engrossed in watching smartphones than their children. This is dangerous, especially for children under five who still do not understand what can and cannot be done.
Eventually, the parent’s relationship with their child will diminish, and even the child may assume that the parent does not care about their existence. Plus, research by Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, Ph.D from Temple University shows, 74% of school principals complain about their worries about their child’s emotional changes due to gadget use.
4. Effects of safety in hospitals.
The importance of technological research to improve safety in hospitals does not always have a positive impact. Call it Joshua Corman, a cybersecurity strategist who tries to gather several volunteers to conduct security research.
However, not a positive result can be obtained, instead, he slowly kills his patients. It’s not killing directly, but through hacking simulations with expert doctors.
Called can kill because the research team will turn off some important equipment that is important before there is real “damage” to the patient’s organs. Indeed, what Joshua Corman did was a simulation, but if it actually happened in real life, there would definitely be a lot of casualties.
5. National security issues
The next scary advanced technology is related to the security of a country. Just imagine if a state secret is revealed because of technology, it is certain that the state will suffer losses, either directly or indirectly.
This means that sophisticated technology must be in place and used for the right things. The misuse of technology that can reveal a secret of a country will cause division, and it is possible for a conflict between the two countries included in this “case” to occur.
6. Technology that affects one’s ethics
Technology has indeed affected all aspects of human life, and this sophisticated technology will actually be scary and have the potential to affect a person’s personality, behavior, and ethics.
The use of technology such as smartphones for too long will trigger someone to be indifferent to the circumstances around them. In fact, as a human being who is a social being, you need to interact and talk directly with other people.
These are the 6 scariest technologies in the world if misused. As a wise user, be good at managing the use of technology and use current technology wisely!
