I think gaming companies will be used by many if not every company in the country, due to the fact that the younger generation grew up on, thrived and understands teachings through digital interactions. So the gaming and simulation industry will never die, it will just evolve into a new form of media. It is almost to say that games are new types of books only you aren’t just reading about the character’s story, you’re interacting with the character to draw out more of the story. Not to say our society is growing past printed books, it’s just growing into something new. Something that envelopes the reader and draws them more into the story.
I think that it will be much more difficult to come up with more content in the future because there is so much great things to look at in the past to compare to. My friend is a mechanical engineer and I have no idea how his industry is going to advance forward. Though there are many fields in mechanical engineering and much to do, it just seems so unimaginable how far that trade could go. Development of a holographic projected interface for computers would be an amazing idea to start with. Usually when seeing things in movies come to life, I start to think that some of the things could become realistic. I think holographic projected computers would be one of the biggest finds at the end of ten years. This new technology would be a space-less monitor that projects your computer screen, not sure if it’ll be touch screen as well though it wouldn’t be impossible to think of that over the next five years after that.
Though with all this technology it still doesn’t change the fact that our economy is going into shambles. People are living longer, people are having babies at younger ages, and our population is increasing dramatically. This creates a problem for people to find work. The housing crisis seems like it’s only have seen the tip of the iceberg, have not seen the huge body that’s underwater, and eventually going to put a hole in our country’s ship. I can only hope that something is done before we sink. Meanwhile government paranoia is going to be on high alert due to the fact that technology will advance even further pass the internet. Terrorism will no longer be done physically by people but through the internet.
The internet was the revolutionary information highway that will still exist only security will be much higher and protected. Due to the fact that most information is dumped onto the internet without being checked, lots of information on the internet will turn it into an opinionated resource rather than having facts. Most of the information that is factual such as online textbooks for students and digital libraries to use will have to be secured by government sites to keep the information from being unchangeable and hacked into by digital terrorists.
One decade from now is very far into the future. Technology evolves so fast that society can’t keep up with it’s measures. All that I am hoping for, is that people evolve as much as technology, and not to let it get too far away from us that we are not controlling it anymore and it is controlling us. We as mankind are always thinking of new ways to convenience ourselves by making things easier. Sometimes we need that step back to keep ourselves on our toes, and relearn what we have modified over the years, and I hope that each generation is not that naïve to forget where they have come from.
