Following on from accelerator's thread about pay services, I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread where we can openly discuss where we feel the future of technology will take us. Many of us will have wondered if gadgets and services from sci-fi films of the past would come true, and in some instances, they have. 20 years ago (just about!) we wouldn't have envisages carrying around a device powerful enough to operate as a PC, with access to anything, anywhere, capable of taking pictures, booking tickets, paying for groceries etc. What else might we look forward to in say the next 20 years. Do you see technology being transferred into watches? What about microchip implants for payment or communication? Is 4k and 8k really the future of television and can we finally say goodbye to god awful 3D. Curved televisions the future for all? Flexible/transparent phones? Custom advertising on walls of the underground. Iris scans and finger print recognition for most purchases and access points? It's great to look forward, especially in this sector (will domains still exist in the same context?), and many of us are entrepreneurial looking for the 'next big thing'. We have had a huge spike in technology shift in recent years, but I think things have slowed a little, though fabrication/development of materials continues, opening up a whole new world of possibility.
