I mean, why do we intentionally limit ourselves?

Because we want our future generations to work harder than us..:D

IPv6 can work till 82k yrs(provided we don't multiply faster than cockroaches:p)

But not climate change:(

its impossible for this ipv6 to run out for its design for every square meters of the world to have ip adress.
somebody's geeker than who create ipv4 figured it out that even micro wave oven has ip address to update its firmware

(6.79525354 × (10^12)) / 264 = 2.57395967 × 10^10

Therefore, we can see that it will be 2.57395967 × 10^10 minutes until all of those are used up. Assuming we're not countering the number with deaths or altering the rate of birth.

Let's counter the number with deaths:
1.8 die every second. 108 each minute.

264 minus 108 = 156. (6.79525354 × (10^12)) / 156 = 4.35593176 × 10^10

My conclusion:
Come and see me in 4.35593176 × 10^10 minutes, Shenron. (Approximately 82,875.414 years.)

IPs should be 75 cents to a buck a piece so don't think they'll change much.

Basically this means that, on average, you can have an IP address for each of your own properties (from pencils to shoes :p).

And that will probably happen in next 100 years as nanotechnology and intelligent materials evolve.
