Technology has been evolving at an increasingly rapid pace for the last few decades. It seems like the boundaries of what we can do with artificial intelligence, the internet and wireless connectivity arebeing pushed on a daily basis.
This speed comes with an obvious downside though – technology becomes obsolete more quickly as well. Let’s take a look at some pieces of technology that’ll probably be gone in the near future, and why/how they’ll be replaced.
While they were revolutionary at the time, they’ve already become somewhat obsolete. Having to manually update your roads, not having a smart interface that monitors traffic… It’s not the best way to do it. And the worst part of it all is that we can already have the “smart” GPS if we just use Google Maps on our smartphones.
Again, with the way these things are being integrated into smartphones, it seems weird that digital cameras wouldn’t be replaced entirely sooner or later. Either there’ll be a new kid on the block, or the smartphone will take over.
Credit And Debit Cards
Again, this one looks like it’s going to get swallowed up entirely by the advancements made in smartphones and apps. Most mobile payment apps are better encrypted than your regular credit card, so it’s just a natural evolution. Also, no way to lose your card!
