Barring some kind of zombie apocalypse, asteroid strike, or the discovery of some new kind of cheap energy, I imagine that the technology of tomorrow
will be pretty similar to the technology of today. Human needs aren't going to change much. We want to talk with each other. We want to move
things around. We want to be entertained. We want to eat nutritious food that doesn't cost a fortune. We want to boost our self-esteem.
I suppose the biggest difference will be that it will be harder to tell whether or not you're communicating with a human being rather than a machine.
But then humans have always tended to anthropomorphize things, talk to their boats and cars like they were people, etc. So it might not be that
striking a transition.
Other than that, it will become more and more obvious that there are too many people on the planet, and our technology will adapt to help us deal with
that, either by helping to isolate us, or connect us in a more functional way with more people.
Flying cars? Only if they can figure out a way to make them nice and quiet. GPS will do the navigating, just like it will with the cars still on the
