I think input/output devices have been pretty much the same over the last decade but I see a change coming. Here are some things ideas for advancements I believe we could be in store for. * Visual display keyboard that emits from tablet or smartphone * Wireless Glove mouse (use index and middle finger) * Motion control keyboard * Full body external display when using Skype or related telecommunication
I think desktops are going to be a thing of the past. The new toy was the Ipad and three or four generations later now we’re moving toward a mini Ipad. Their even crossing lines with smart phones. The Galaxy note is a hybrid which offers both sides.
I think the motion control/Xbox Kinect technology is going to be the most prominent. I think peripherals are going to be a thing of the past. USB drives will disappear with the growing popularity for cloud services.
The cloud services would benefit me in my life due to helping go paperless. In my job we waste tons of paper filing it away in file cabinets just to in two year receive a web based class on records retention. Then we shred it all. It’s time we put it on in one location on the internet where it can be accessed anywhere we can establish an internet connection.
When it comes to applications I have found several very useful. I use a calorie counter, a translator, and on demand media. I don’t even keep cable in my house anymore due to these certain apps. I run Netflix and Hulu on a Playstation 3 next to my television and spend a whopping $16 a month compared to my old dish company.
