Future electronics and gadgets will be way beyond iPads, iPods,
iPets and the like though the near future will be filled with
these gizmos, gadgets and apps. I foresee one day in the not too
distant future iPads, iPods, iPhones and all of the associated
apps will be combined into one product. This is the future of
Future Electronics in action
How can this be you ask? Size does matter. Indeed it does and
there is a way around the size issue. Future electronics technology
dictates that one day soon virtual holographic screens and keyboards
will appear on the market.
What this means is that you'll be able to have small piece of
hardware the size of a USB drive and it will project a virtual
holographic screen, keyboard and keypad that is of the size to
your liking. From this virtual image you'll be able to type, dial,
surf the Internet, watch TV, movies, listen to music, take photos,
find yourself and friends locally through GPS, do facial recognition
of strangers, run background checks in real time and other items
the imagination can't quite grasp right now.
But future electronics will not be all about one product as there
will be many open source technological products in the
marketplace from which to choose. While walking or hiking
would you like to scout out the area ahead? Well, you'll
be able to do this with your own personal drone.
Mini Copters ...
Miniature helicopters and airplanes will become so sophisticated
and automated you'll be able have them take real time video and
do your scouting from miles away. Even while in your car, your
vehicle will communicate with these drones about traffic conditions,
crowdedness of restaurants, who is at work or school already and
too many functions to list.
Decades beyond this your future electronics will be a small device
that you'll think into and this will do away with the virtual
holographic keyboard, screen and keypad. Think this is farfetched?
Humans can already think into computers and do quite complex tasks
using current technology. The human brain is made up of billions
of neurons running complex electrical processes every nanosecond.
But, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves yet and only go
into the foreseeable future of electronics. Within the
next decade, Wii and XBox will join forces along with
an MIT development of a "Personal Global Playing
Area". What this means first is that all Wii-XBox
games will be experiential so no matter whether it's Call
of Duty or a game of golf, you'll be actively and experientially
Suspended Animation ...
The second part of this is that you'll be suspended inside of
your personal 360-degree globe where you can run, fall, do summersaults
and other stunts in real time without getting injured. This will
be 3D, HD interactive play at its finest. This will be quite the
opposite of a sensory deprivation chamber and more like a sensory
In your personal globe you'll also be able to switch to doing
work if needed, talk to friends, and take a 3D vacation. No "Total
Recall" movie here as you'll have control of stepping into
or out of your virtual world at will.
Future electronics also dictate that
with your small electronic device you'll be able to control
the every move of your robotic personal assistant. Not only
that, but a decade after this robots will go semi-holographic
in that you'll be able to project them when and where you
want them and have them do tasks that they physically will
be able to do in the real world.
For instance, you'll be able to project your holographic robot
from your personal electronic device and have it cook you a meal,
prepare your bed, or do what little laundry you'll have at this
time. Your hologram robot will have physical properties and will
be able to move objects and do other physical tasks. When finished
you'll be able to recall your personal robot into your small electronic
device and go on with your business.
Future electronics will continue to evolve, mutate and integrate
with one's brainwaves and neurological being. Practical and ethical
dilemmas will slow progress but only for so long. Electronics
integrated into one's body will be inevitable, but then progress
past this point will take place and future electronics will no
longer be necessary inside or attached to one's body.
As you already know, the future of electronics changes rapidly.
Gadgets, gizmos, computer hardware, software, biology,
genetics are all quickly changing fields which are moving
together at a rapid pace.
Laptop Antiques ...
In only a few years time, the invention of the laptop
will be on par with us looking back at the invention of
the printing press or steamboat. Newborns of today will
grow up in a vastly more personally power electronic world
than we can even imagine today. And they won't even realize
the here and now as we know it.
