It is speculated that the following things will disappear because of technological developments:
It is said that cash will be totally replaced by cards with microchips on them and the amount of money you want at the time will be digitally put on the microchip. When you buy something the card can just be swiped through a machine the amount due will be deducted from the card.
All keys will be replaced cards or locks will have digital code locks. Again if the card is swiped through the slot the door will open. Another development is that car keys will disappear completely. A card with a microchip unique to your car will be carried in your pocket and when you come within a certain distance from the car the doors will open. To start the car you will only have to push a button inside your car. Mercedes is already implementing this technology into their new S-class.
Car salesmen, insurance brokers, real estate agents among others will disappear. All this will be done through the web. The whole stock exchange will also become totally web based.
Court reporters and secretaries will also go. This is because of the fact that computers are beginning to do voice recognition very well. So then only a small device with voice recognition and printing abilities will record every thing said in a court. It will also have to be able to respond to command s like taking certain remarks off the record. In the secretary's case a computer can easily monitor all incoming calls and taking of messages.
Because of increasing technology you will soon be able to get your whole education from the web and many home schooling courses that are recognised around the world are already available. It will only be a matter of time before this will be the chief way of getting an education.
The progress in the development of GPS systems have brought along a few changes in maximum-security prisons. A prisoner will wear a wristband detectable by satellite and if he goes out of his restricted area the wristband either explodes or give him the shock of his life.
Almost every movie can be downloaded from the Internet. With the invention of a DVD recorder video shops are certain to disappear.
