The Future of Technology: 3 Predictions for 2030

The future of technology is always a topic of interest. What will the world look like in 2030? How will our lives be different? Let’s explore five predictions for the future of technology. These predictions come from a variety of sources, including futurists and industry experts. Keep reading to learn more.

Portable Smell

handWhat if we could smell what is advertised on our TV, laptops, and smartphone screens? Would that be something cool or something weird? Scientists are already working on this technology, and it’s called “portable smell.” This technology would allow us to smell a perfume or cologne as we’re watching an ad for it. Or, we could smell the cookies baking in the oven as we’re reading about them on our phones. This technology is still in development, but it’s possible that tech giants like Google and Facebook will be the ones to bring it to the masses.

In-Ear Translation

We’ve all been there: we’re in a foreign country, and we can’t understand what someone is saying to us. Thankfully, there’s already technology that can help with that. In-ear translation devices are becoming more and more popular. These devices sit in your ear and translate the language for you in real-time.

Some of the best In-ear translation devices on the market are:

  1. The Pilot by Waverly Labs – This is one of the most popular In-ear translation devices on the market. It’s small, lightweight, and can translate up to 12 languages.
  2. The TimeKettle WTII – This In-ear translation device is a bit more expensive than the Pilot, but it can translate up to 40 languages.
  3. BabelFish Alpha – This In-ear translation device is still in development, but it promises to be the most accurate In-ear translator on the market. It will be able to translate up to 100 languages.

In-ear translation devices are becoming more and more common as the world becomes more globalized. It’s likely that by 2030, most people will be using some form of In-ear translation device when they travel.


Built-in Chips

Have you ever played Detroit: Become Human? In that game, there are characters with built-in chips that allow them to do things like hack devices and connect to the internet. While that may sound like science fiction, it’s not far from reality.

There are already companies working on chips that can be implanted into our bodies. These chips would allow us to do things like:

  • Pay for things with a wave of our hand
  • Open doors with our fingerprints
  • Start our cars with our voices
  • Connect to the internet without a phone or computer

The possibilities are endless. It’s likely that by 2030, many people will have these chips implanted in their bodies.
