One area that has interested me all of my adult life is the future – or more accurately, future technology. As I go about my daily life I can’t help but think about what the technology of the next 5, 10, 15, 25 years might look like.
I also can’t help but think about how these technological changes will impact our lives; how different the future will look because of these changes.
One big area that will obviously be impacted is how automation, the Internet of Things and smart buildings/clothing/objects will affect how we go about normal day-to-day activities, and the knock on effect to the job market.
Changes in this area will have an impact in areas such as economics, politics, law and sociology. I – and therefore this blog – will not dwell too much on these factors. Not because they are not important, but because I am only interested in the fun bits; the technology, the design, the solutions, the engineering. There is plenty of other times and places to go through those other aspects.
So, as a kind of blog within a blog, there will be articles posted here looking at various, somewhat theoretical, applications of technology and what the future might look like.
