I imagine future technology to be completely different than it is today. I mean granted there will still be some piece of technology still in use, like cars and maybe cell phones. But I think the cars will be computerized and you won’t have to drive them. I also think there will be sims card implanted into your brain so you can text and call people through your thoughts. I also think that we will have permanent ear buds so we can listen to music whenever we want to. I think we will be starting moon colonization and maybe even taking trips to mars. There will be museums with technology that was present today, like actual cell phones, and laptop computers. That’s really fascinating to think that the technology we are using today, one day we will be telling our children “when i was your age I actually had to type my essays.” Like there will be a thought recorded that will potentially write your essays for you. I’m really interested to see where technology will go in the next 50 years.
I also stumbled upon this video about Phonebloks. But basically I think this is the phone of the future. The product itself is a phone but it consists of two main parts, the screen and the circuit board, but then there are multiple blocks that you can customize to whatever you need your phone to do. For example, if you’re a photographer, you can add a block for a camera. If you need a longer battery life, you can add a block with a bigger battery. You can even make a phone that has a simple call and text capability. I’m not the greatest at explaining how cool this phone is but here is the video so you can understand it a lot better. I think this is one of the coolest things. The phone also tackles the problem of the world’s increasing device waste. Because the world of technology is constantly changing, people want the newest and best thing on the market. So a lot of times they throw out perfectly good pieces of technology, like TVs and even phones. Phonebloks aims to decrease the amount of technological waste we produce. The phone tackles two problems at once.
