OK, this post is named such in response to this contest at http://www.futureishp.com/MYblogtrend.html
But this sure sets one thinking. What is the future like? With all the advances in technology, one really contemplates what the future holds, especially that technology changes so fast right now. I can remember when computers are a novelty. Those were the days where one household can barely afford to own one computer. Now, ONE person in ONE household has ONE computer. Yes, even my 4 year old son fights with me for computer time!
So, what do you think will be the next HUGE(or should I say little?) gadget?
I think the next huge thing will be this little thing which combines the function of a cell phone, watch and netbook into a gadget that is small and fashionable enough to wear on your wrist. And well, the standard name would then be WristPhone? (not very original, I admit.. hehe….)
It will not only be just another gadget. It will also become a fashion statement. Stylish designs for ladies. Macho elegance for guys.
And what does this WristPhone actually does?
This will become the “must-have” gadget especially for people on the go. This gadget tells time (like a conventional watch) and acts as your mobile phone when coupled together with a stylish headset. Oh, the keypad is too small? No problem, just project the keypad to your hand and dial!
Now what about a bigger screen? No problem, just detach the device from your wrist, and set it down on a table. It comes with a projected virtual keyboard and screen and there you go! You can now complete simple tasks like browsing, replying to the ever urgent emails or just edit your documents!
Now, you need to transfer your data to another PC? No problem! Just plug it in!
And if you are bored, you could even watch movies, listen to music and play games with this nifty little gadget!
You can now say goodbye to your laptop. No more heavy carry-ons into the plane. Just wear this on your wrist and you are all set to go!
Ain’t this WristPhone the coolest thing?
