Your day in the future will be this. You will wake up, and your predictables wrist device will begin to deliver your daily schedule to you.
Your bathroom mirror will be equipped with Corning’s digital glass. While you’re brushing, you’ll read the news of the future as it is today.
With your face freshly washed, you’ll walk to the kitchen and print some food for yourself. With a belly full, you will walk to the garage to start your electric, driverless car that will take you to the local hyperloop station.
When it comes to work, or at least the thing we do to make an income, your day in the future will be much different from it is now.
The hours you will work will be down to only a few. Robots will have taken-up much of the menial labor, and other than some routine maintenance, you will largely be maintaining software on which these robots run.
“The next generation of anthropomorphic machines will move beyond the factories and warehouses to work beside humans in new capacities. Where robots in the factories were cells of articulated-armed, fast-moving steel machines that had to be caged in controlled production environments to protect human workers; the next generation of robots is working side-by-side with their human counterparts.” – Dick Slansky, ARC Advisory Group
The work day, in the future, will consist of leisure.
