11 Everyday Things That Won’t Exist In 10 Years’ Time
Technology. Evolving. Evolving, and evolving, and evolving. Evolving at such a rate. It’s taking over and revolutionising. It’s massive, it’s outrageous, and it’s going to be removing these things from our day to day lives…
1. Traffic Jams
2. Physical Credit Cards
USB audio is where headphones connect through USB/lightning ports instead of the jack ports we currently use. This will mean phones can get even thinner, and that headphones can draw power directly from a phone rather than needing to be charged.
5. Delivery People
6. Remote Controls
8. Physical Media
Storing files on the cloud and being able to stream content whenever you want is way more convenient than using physical items like USB sticks and CDs to store files. As storage for mobile devices increases alongside faster internet speeds, physical media is probably going to suffer a massive decline in usage within the next 10 years.
9. Wired Chargers
Some of us are already starting to use wireless chargers for our devices, but the infrastructure isn’t here yet for it to go into mass usage. But it’s estimated that it will only take a few more years to develop, so it won’t be long before we can say goodbye to tangled wires and adaptors.
10. Phone Towers
Eventually, our phones will be able to communicate with each other without the use of phone towers, and this technology already exists for a limited range of 500 metres. Once it develops even further, our phones will be able to add to cellular networks, bettering signal strength, and making phone towers obsolete.
The Internet of Things is the idea that everyday objects, like clothes, cars, and household equipment, will soon all become “smart” and connected to the internet. Once this is reality, the concept of “offline” and “logging off” will no longer make sense, as pretty much everything and everyone we interact with will be connected – all the time.
