Of course no one can completely predict the future yet there are signs as to what future technology will hold in store. In the last decade alone we’ve seen quite an evolution regarding cell phones and computers. Once foreign terms like ‘tablet computers’ and ‘Ultrabooks’ are now a reality and manufactures are impressively finding ways to store more processing power and memory on smaller and smaller devices.
What can you expect to see with future technology?
There have been some interesting studies done on technology looking forward including the website futuretimeline.net which is part eerie scary and part mythical entertainment. Then there are others, like the one published by BBC News in January 2013 which makes predictions for the New Year like the ability for patients to be prescribed medical apps by their doctors as well as predictions five, ten and even twenty years down the road which foresee a digital currency, the ability for your computer to sense smell, purely automated cars and more.
Regardless of how outlandish some theories might seem one thing is certain is that future technology will only become more and more sophisticated. Not only that, but expect to see technology continue to be more of a factor in everyday lifestyle as the latest trends are clearly not fads.
Expect to see tablet computers or devices with a similar size and functions continue to be capable of doing more. If it entirely likely that cell phones, cameras, mp3 players, etc could one day all be consolidated into one single device, yet how quickly that will occur is questionable as reducing several individual electronic devices to one single product would inevitably hurt profits of major corporations like Apple, Samsung, Amazon, Google and others.
Speed will continue to be of the upmost importance. Users will expect information to be transferred almost simultaneously, just as quickly as it’s being transmitted. Communication, which is moving to digital means, will continue to be a hub for people looking to connect with not only family and friends but people from around the world.
Entertainment will be crucial for future technology. Individuals will seek to be entertained, whether it’s watching video, listening to music, playing games or surfing the Web. All of these predictions are not bold; they simply reveal what we are already seeing in 2013. Question is… Do you think it’s the right way to move to the future?
