Great leaps in technology are being made every day in the 21st century. Steve Jobs was one of the first visionaries to fully realise the value of the touchscreen in people’s lives, and thus the modern smartphone was born. The current trend in technology is the pursuit of autonomy and integrated lifestyles. Entire households controlled by a computer, cars that can drive themselves – the achievement of these aims, which were hitherto limited to the realm of science fiction, is what some of the best minds of our time are obsessed with. The following bit of speculative fiction imagines what life will be like for us in 2050, when touchscreen, autonomous, and integrated technologies will have inevitably merged into a simultaneously complex and simplified whole. I may be entirely wrong in imagining that some of the things I’ve described in this essay will come to pass, but it is still interesting to imagine what life will be like in the electric future 40 years from now. We may never, ever have flying cars, but I do believe that the technologies mentioned in this essay are within the realm of possibility (indeed, some of them exist even now, if only in very nascent stages). It is my hope that we will be able to take advantage of them sooner rather than later.
