The Timeline: A Not-So-Distant Future?
1. Birth Pod Facilities
While the above will be for the uber-well-off, the private sector (I mean medicine) will have entire pod-birth hospitals for the majority of society.
2. Home Birth Pod Rooms
"Hello, yes this is nurse Mary. Your baby is ready!"
First, like all innovations, they will serve a function like premature births. Later it will be big business! Way later (in 2042) you have an option to go fully remote. You can grow your children in a pod room with full remote medical staff monitoring every kick, and blood pressure change. All while you, Miss not-so-prego, can have your wine for the full nine months.
A possible solution to depopulation?
3. China will have full on "turkey soldiers"
By this time China will have entirely isolated itself from any and all "world-laws" and completely man its ranks with cooked-up super soldiers.

5. Lower Your Health Care Premium at The Cell Phone Store?
We're getting fatter. Our paleolithic bodies still want all the fat, sugar, and salt we can lick from each Dorito dust-covered finger. Society's obesity costs a lot! (270 billion annually).
Just like driving Miss Daisy saves you on your car insurance, the wearables of the future save you on your healthcare costs.
6. Nuclear Power Boom
To the dismay of fathers across the globe, thermostats will continue to be turned down. Then, after the world realizes carbon emissions haven't budged, we'll realize we've had the technology all along.
7. No Third Worlds?
There is a trend happening across the globe. While the leader in constitutional experimentation has onset dementia, there is a lot to learn from the successes and mistakes. Nevertheless, small countries plagued with years of corruption from the top down have been writing up their own countries' list of rights.
We've seen just a small glimpse of what this means to the powers that be. . .
