Apple iGlasses with OLED transparent lenses that can be Kinect style in front of your face with 2 cameras on the iGlasses. So it can be a touch interface and the iPhone can double as a mouse with Mobile mouse pro.
The future of all computing will be through a merger of technology and biology. The technology exists for wireless contact lenses to transmit computer images and data directly into the eyes.
The future of magazines lies in the evolution of gadgets that are already a norm in society. Adding a micro-projector and camera (gesture based) into Bluetooth headsets would create a powerful new device. The headset would link to the user’s cell phone.
I hope to be reading PopSci on a flexible fabric based device that will be very much like a glossy magazine. It will be solar powered and full color with video and wi-fi. I also hope it is touch sensitive and waterproof.
My idea is that in 20 years from now, middle end or low end devices used for browsing (especially magazines) will be small devices that will be placed on peoples’ necks and will project the image on a surface and/or directly in the air at a certain distance.
In the future everyone will carry a tablet computer. A tablet can project holographic images on a table, so people can view a video, object or picture in three dimensions. Magazines become more interactive, so people can place comments or tips.
In 20 years, my 3D printer will print PopSci out as a flexible multitouch display. It will include zoomable pictures, 2D, and 3D video. With the return to 4D (aka tactile objects), models of the articles’ subjects will print out also.
I envision a full time satellite connected cranial implant with ocular and aural connection that is thought controlled. This device would allow thought controlled web surfing at all times. No need for cell phones…it’s built in.
