With hi-tech gadgets and gizmos seeing the light of the day every minute, it is but obvious that things that we are so used to seeing around us may someday vanish from the map of the earth.
Every day numerous updates are taking place, adding more to existing technology. The best example of this rapid development is our mobile devices, that demand to be changed after every 6 months.
Even Sophia might find a place in homes, helping people with their everyday chores. Are you getting that everything in excessive demand will become a museum entity by 2025?
Here are 8 things that will disappear in the future:
1. Cash, Cheques, Credit Cards And ATMs
With the increased use of mobile wallets such as PayTm, Mobiwik, PhonePay, Free Charge, Tez, etc. have highlighted the fact that digital wallets will soon replace the hard form of money. Almost all places offering goods or services have incorporated the digital mode of payment.
2. Storage Devices Such As Pen Drive, External SSD, And HDD.
More and more users, including you and me, are now storing our information in cloud storage, drive, and Dropbox. With the passage of time, these online saving features will be more easily adapted to daily life.
3. Passwords In The Form Of Text And Numbers
We have seen text passwords with a mandatory capital letter and number becoming obsolete. We came to the total number-based login options and we will soon give farewell to it. Biometrics, a unique ID, and password for every person will become the access providers in coming years.
4. Television And Remote Control
Google has already announced its wearable Google Glasses, which will be based on augmented reality. Besides this, online channels and mobile control will be available for the future viewership.
5. Paper-Based Documentation And Agreement
We will soon have light pens in our pockets because we will have to sign documents on digital devices, such as touchpads. This will reduce the use of paper and hence, paperwork. Digitalization will help save trees too.
6. Human-operated Product Delivery
We have heard of helicopters and aircrafts taking people from one place to other. The next level thing is the replacement of human-operated delivery of products and services by quadcopters or drones. You may have to collect the delivery of products from your window and put in your thumb as a receiving signature.
7. Mirror Display System In High-End Cars
We will not find rear view mirrors in cars anymore. A closed-circuit television system for the area surrounding your vehicle will provide a complete view of everything around. Side mirrors and back view mirrors will go out of use.
8. Chord Based Charges
Apple has already introduced wireless charging in the latest iPhone. The day is not far when wireless charging will become a household thing and no plugin devices will be required. We could even expect charging while on the go, without using a power bank.
9. Text Based Searches
As search engines are evolving, text-based searches are soon to lose their very existence as people will gradually shift towards voice commands. Voice based searches will become more common and every platform will be optimized for it.
With 2018 already knocking your door, be ready to say goodbye to cash, credit cards, Cheques, ATMs, HDDs, SSDs, pen drives, television, remote control, mirror view system, text passwords, chord-based chargers, paper documents, etc. And at the same time be ready to accept the changes.
Have a technologically advanced new year!
