Business insider Australia asked a group of 9 to 13 year olds what they thought technology would be like in the future. The list included;
Phones in your hand
Holographic pictures coming from your hand
Computers that are more like robots that have eyes and faces that you can talk to
Computers that can sort of read your mind
People will be more lazy because robots will do everything
An everything chair
While the experts are predicting;
Smart contact lenses to replace phones
Holographic computers already exist and it is no stretch to see these small enough to display from something the size of a watch
Robotic love is a very common prediction with robots so human like they may become the partner of choice for some
Artificial Intelligence for everything. There are already computers that allow you to open files just by looking at them
Robotics may become advanced enough to replace people in work, home and schools
Realistic Virtual Reality and 3D Holographics will be available
While a couple of these predictions are already here, the experts say all of this will be available by the year 2050 – when the toddlers of today are in their 30’s!
My eldest daughter is 29 today, when she was a teen the internet was in it's infancy with regards to social interactions, there were no smart phones and chat rooms were all the rage. When my youngest, now 7 is a teen, which is only 5-10 years away, I doubt she will even have to use a keyboard, and who knows what her first job will be like? For just a short time away I can only imagine what her world will be like and even then my imagination my not be capable of making that guess.
