It is very difficult to predict the technology that will take over the world as innovations come in different ways but with one motive, to make life easier and make missions accomplished easily but it is quite easy to tell previous tech will go into extinction due to the release of a new tech and its acceptability by the masses. Did you remember the days when you use a VCR player to watch that black and white television? A lot of people will not forget that, so even had to predict the color of the cloths the people on screen wore. As time goes by, it was gradually replaced by the VCD then the DVD player and now, most people prefer to pay for a cable subscription or watch the movie online.
There are always innovations which always replaces older ones while there are some innovations that do not see the light of the day less replace an older one. In the post, I will be writing about a few technologies that will be displaced in the future.
Keys and Manual Locks
In the future, your grandchildren will bring a metallic or plastic object (in the case of cars) asking what it is and you will let them know it is a key. They will ask what type of keys are those because the keys they will know will be online passwords and accesses? You will then explain the chronicles of using a key to open the doors and what happens if you lock the main and spare key inside the house or when you misplace your keys. Technology is improving really fast and the use of voice command and machine learning is going to bring a difference to opening locks in doors, using biometrics is already being used and soon biometric opening of doors will be the next big thing to keys.
In the nearest future in maybe 10 years, we will be saying good bye to mirror-less cars. Drivers will not have to worry about looking at the mirror and escaping a near crash due to ide mirrors. Companies are working on cars without side mirrors and Audi and BMW is one of the. Instead of using side mirrors to view by looking sideways, the cars will have cameras that will project what is happening behind and beside to the driver inside the car. The software system built to the cameras will have the ability to warn drivers of any near hit from the rear or the side.
Fossil Fuel Running Cars
Tesla is doing well in this area with electric cars. In England, almost every home will soon be equipped with electric vehicle chargers in an effort to make all mode of transportation environmentally friendly and reduce pollution in 2025.
Almost all home has a remote control for their television, decoder, air conditioner and lots more but with time, with the internet of things and artificial intelligence, we will not be needing the remotes anymore as you can just give your gadget a simple command and it will obey. It will be a full smart home in every home.
Cash and Credit card
I cannot say when cryptocurrency will take over the normal fiat standard, but it is visible that the world will go cashless completely in a matter of years. MasterCard already introduced the selfie pay method to pay for goods and services. The method of payment only need facial recognition to initiate a transfer.
Oh Yes, a lot of people fear needles (Maybe I am one, maybe I’m not one) and do not like going for intravenous treatment. Currently, there are needle free injections known as the Jet injector. The device allow penetration of liquid medicine into the epidermis of the body.
