The Nexy Big Thing

It’s just a little bit late, I know, but it’s been a busy day. Herewith my response to the Daily Prompt.

Just the other day we were talking about how much technology have changed over the last couple of years. The change over the last 20 years have been especially big. Every year a thing or two is released which promises to “drastically” improve your lifestyle, make your work easier, ya-da-ya-da-ya-da. So what’s next? Where will it be in 10 years from now, 20 years?

The first thing that came to mind was: holographic communication. We already have Skype to connect us with loved ones or employers hundreds or thousands of miles away. The logical next step would be for them to magically pop up from the middle of your screen.

That could be fun, or not! I could really do with a holographic image of my mom or dad popping up once a day to chat. Imagine the same for someone you REALLY don’t want to talk to, and it no longer looks so promising.

Imagine a stiff upper lip, frustrated clerk popping up to reprimand you about that past due account. Even worse, the larger than life sales manager from head office casually popping up to remind you about your sales target, which is so far off it represents the Grand Canyon. Now that is something I can really do without!

What would you want to be the next major technological invention?

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. On a quest to find my happy-ever-after, I am in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you!

  1. Less and less privacy. Also, imagine all the holographic adverts around the sales manager!
    “Poppleguppy – the new sync calendar to remind you of your sales targets!”

Say something, you know you want to!
