With the advent of Siri and sofware packages like Dragon Speak and Nuance for Mac’s, one cannot help noticing how antiquated the keyboard is. It’s almost completely redundant currently and it’s usefulness will only decline in the next couple of years.
I imagine the future computers will be a pair of glasses that had wrap around lenses with augmented reality as a standard. Instead of
typing or speaking, we’ll use brain waves to control our day to day activities. Life will be will be serendipitous and day to day activities like shopping and cleaning will become redundant as shops will automatically know when you’re low on food and one will have low cost robots cleaning the house.
It’s not that far off – interesting times ahead.
