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?
