Future of Technology! What's Next?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty New Orleans

Well, this all started yesterday when I sent my mother a text message and my iPhone changed a properly spelled word that I hardly use 'gum', a fine word, I just don't use it while texting, into 'gym' a word I use with great frequency.  Perhaps one of the words that I use the most, not on the same level as "Hi, Me, You, Yes, No" etc... but definitely amongst the most commonly used words in my texting vocabulary.  

So what does it mean when my cellphone, or smart phone I guess I should say, determines that I actually did want to use the word that it suggested instead of the word I typed?  

Anyways, that gets me to thinking about what's next, I mean we've come pretty far pretty quickly as far as consumer based technology is concerned, but I would like to see it taken to the next level.

Futuristic Volkswagen looks the part

Now futuristic cars are one thing, and with enough training in computer design, I'm sure most people could fabricate an image of their ideal future car, but what about something much bigger, say when population density becomes an issue... shouldn't be too far in the future.

Floating cities off the coast may one day be needed.

If you follow the above picture and scroll down a little, there's a ~4:00 video about the plan that is actually being set into motion to create floating cities in the equatorial ocean.  I won't give it all away.

Or you could skip right to the article, Shimizu Corp and friends plans to build one, I hope I get to take a vacation there one day. If I have to wait till 2030 I guess I have to... but that's only 18 years from now!Smiling thumbs up guy

Gosh... If I could just go back in time and spell gym properly none of this would ever have happened.

I wonder if anyone is working on anything?
