Hi, Tiago. 

Thanks for your insightful (rational) explanation. However, empirically, both sentences still mean the same to me. I can't see any difference but the fact that B is a more detailed explanation of A!

A) Fifty years from now, we will have created organ replacements with 3D printers.

B) Fifty years from now, we will have created technology to perform organ replacements with 3D printers.

Have a look: When talking about a period of time rather than a specific time you can also use (time period) from now or in (time period's) time:

Three years from now we'll have been together for a decade. (and hopefully still together)
