Other fun things to think about
All of these technological advancements will be here sooner rather than later. With the potential we’ve seen here, just imagine what else we’ll get to experience ten years from now.
Got a fussy kid who won’t get dressed in the morning? Pick up a robotic fashionista to choose an outfit and get ready for the day faster than Randy from A Christmas Story. The stylist will also provide an extra set of hands to wash faces and brush teeth. You won’t have to lift a finger!
Are you more of the athletic type? Pick up an AI opponent for your backyard basketball court or soccer pitch. In ten years, a robot goalie can surely defend better than what we’ve got now.
We’ll also see new things in the bedroom. Smart mattresses can currently adjust things like the angle of your bed and monitor your resting heart rate. But why stop there? In ten years, we’ll have smart technology that can take care of the entire sleeping process. Put a wearable on your head and it will count sheep, provide white noise, and keep your eyelids closed as you drift off into dreamland – where it will then create vivid dreams for your subconscious entertainment.
While we can currently are rewarded for our smart homes, it’s hard to believe that today’s super-connected homes will, someday, feel antiquated. But with the pace at which this new tech is advancing, 2020 could feel like “the old days” before we know it.
