I think we're experiencing the next great leap now with 3-D printing and 4-D printing. The potential for this tech is almost limitless.

4D printing?
Do you mean a 3D printer that takes ages to print?

No. 4-D is 3-D printed objects that can form into a specific shape over time.

I'm hoping the "Next Big Thing" will be...actually, 2 things.

1. Ask a question anywhere in the house and a computer will answer..just like later Star Treks, etc.. BTW, is there a good smartphone (Android) app for that yet? Google Voice just sends you to a web-page. I want a verbal or viewable answer to my questions.

2. Instead of watching TV on a screen, watch it as if it's something really occurring in the middle of the room. You can get up walk around and view it from all sides. For maximum enjoyment and minimum distractions, it would probably have to be pitch black in the room.

Hopefullly we'll have these items available and affordable in the next 20 years. I'm over 50 already. How time flies!

I think you're on the right track. Watching movies or old TV episodes online is already common place. Being able to watch what you want when you want is a big advantage over traditional TV.

Some websites which offers a similar service:
1) Netflix
2) Crackle
3) Epix
4) Google play
5) CinemaNow
6) Vudu
7) Blockbuster On Demand
8) Amazon Prime/Amazon Instant Video
9) Hulu Plus
10) Youtube (not really a good example)
11) iTunes

Now take all those same services, and increase your internet speed by 100x.

No more buffering. No more waiting for things to load. Plus add to it the fact that it will do everything your cable provider offers, at a much faster speed, at half the cost. It's a no brainer to me on cost alone.

Soon you would be able to buy a plastic square (like a CF) this will be a singer or pop group playing in 3D you would insert it like a CF and then see the group play in front of you, clear as day 360. 3D

This is already a well known technology but it's so cool. First person view quadcopter racing. It reminds me of Star Wars flying through the woods.

anti gravity
duplicators - a machine that copies anything you point it at, even food
drugs that are very healthy for you
music/video editing computer that plays your thoughts
dream recorders
healing machines that use sound and frequency

i hope i see any of these in my lifetime.

The next big thing is NSA telling you are not allowed into your washroom without application first

The next big thing is war and death

I can see personal drones becoming next big thing that follow you like a halo.

It would come off the idea of the "Selfie Stick"

It will record everything you did that day, people who are using selfie sticks will jump on it, because of how much they love their selfs.
