RE: 10 Things That Will Be Gone By 2035

in LeoFinance5 months ago

I get it, but I'm not really buying it. Some of these things will be severely diminished by 2035, but I think most will remain. Print magazines? There's still something nice about having a book or magazine in your hand, especially if we're talking about things that could be collectors items. Physical newspapers on the other hand... yeah you might be right.

Screens? That's being hopeful. Also, it kind of ignores that humans are visual. The data that we absorb from our environment is largely focused on visual data. And yeah, our main way of interfacing with a computer hasn't changed in almost 50 years. 3D is nice, but it's still not going to be the norm for a long time. So the same issue applies to the idea of smartphones disappearing.

  1. Bank Branches

I agree here, except that I think it'll be more that they'll be very different. I've been working on a project that I'm calling "Project Outpost." The idea is to combine a credit union, consignment center, and postal service into one operation. Physical locations will be key here too.

You might be right but, if I were a betting man, I wouldnt bet on that. We saw how quickly the smart phone took over. The "expert" opinion is that mixed reality will be mainstream by 2025-2027. Even if they are off, it is still a long way from 2035.

That is akin to saying that music is still in physical form since people still have record collections. Of course, collectibles are going to always be around. However, few would claim that music is not digital/streaming today in spite of the collectibles that exist.

Interesting project.
