Once upon a time today’s gadgets were considered as yesterday’s imagination or future world of today’s perception. Today everything has become smart enough use a smart phone and make calls, surf the Web, play games, run applications and accomplish more than most speculative fiction authors dared to dream. So what is tomorrow’s fiction of today.
There is going to be an extinction of basic phones. As it has become cheap and best smart phone is on the process of becoming everything. The process is gradual. Well the general population follows the pioneers of mobile buyers or any rich business man or woman.
Smart phone is the fastest finger first option and other innovations like Apple’s I-phone and Google’s Android have kicked out smart phones. Internet is already the king of communication and it is thriving to be an emperor as well. Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) has become an important asset in many gadgets. Social websites like face book and twitter are always there to connect with people. You need to be a VIP to address one to many communications. Now anyone can do it at the blink of your eye.
From entertainment to politics everything will be evolved with such technology. Using the Web as a communication tool, people with aspirations may be able to find an audience more easily than ever before. Well there might be a possibility of politicians contesting elections through their smart phones and people voting or doing a NOTA through their smart phone. So no more QUEUES!
A technological overlay view is used for augmented reality system. Most probably it will be the form of a smart phone and there are many augmented reality systems for many such phones. Another possibility of application is through a set of augmented-reality glasses. In either case, you can view the world around you and see real-time digital information about what you’re viewing.
Using such sophisticated reality systems you can stand in front of a restaurant and you can read the daily specials as well. Well if you want to extend it to people then imagine of seeing a stranger and getting his name, profile picture in face book, twitter and other social websites. Clearly, augmented reality systems will raise concerns about privacy and safety, but such systems are already in development.
Then there’s video conferencing. While the technology has existed for years, video calls aren’t popular in the United States. It might be because the hardware hasn’t been compelling or cost-effective enough. But now webcams are starting to appear on televisions and are standard on many laptops. Are we about to enter an era of video conferencing, or is it too much works to make sure you and your house look nice before you order that pizza?
Language will not be a barrier anymore because you will be carrying a multi linguistic device so no need of any physical mediator.
