When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone? Or the last time you sent a greeting card? Don’t remember?
Well, all these conventional sources of communication have been replaced by e-mails and e-cards and this is what we call as the techno revolution.
A few years back cell phones were considered to be a luxury, but now they have become more of a necessity. Earlier postmen were long awaited by us, but now all we wait for is a Facebook update or Twitter tweets. Way back in the 90s we did not imagine that chatting on Whats-App and e-buddy would be our daily routine instead of verbal communication. Neither did we imagine that TV sets and PCs would become as thin as a book.
Considering all these modifications, we can now develop a vision about how our future would be like. How the year 2050 would be like?
Presently, we usually battle with our alarm clock. In the year 2050, we will have a device that would limit or control our sleeping capability that would ultimately wake us according to the designated time.
We need not rush to the toilets for all the waste matter would get absorbed from our body by certain radiations. Food will take the form of small, potable tablets.
Traffic is one of the largest problems in the world. In 2050, we might give rise to air traffic. Just like Jet sons did! While introspecting the outburst of economic growth of India, by 2050 Rs.1.would equal to $50.
In 2050, a trip to the US would cost us a mere $500 and the duration of the journey could be deduced to a few minutes instead of hours. Moreover, people would prefer the moon, mars and other planets over hot spot holiday destinations like Switzerland, Mauritius, Australia and so on while planning their vacations.
“Once upon a time, children used to study in a school and read books made of paper…….”
Our next generations would get amused and entertained on reading stories like this.
Instead of humans, robots and machines would rule all the spheres of our lifestyle.
In short, greenery will be substituted by different metallic shades and sentiments will take the form of electric signals. And this is how i envision circa 2050 – spectacular and brilliantly amazing to fantasize but too technological to handle. I just hope Homo sapiens do not devise a faster way to reproduce also.
