Visions of a technology-enhanced future

Chinese technology giant Baidu, Samsung, and Microsoft produced interesting conceptual videos of what the near future might look like.

Samsung predicts this kind of future:

The tech companies’ visions share a lot in common, including:
  • Augmented reality as a part of everyday life
  • Big touchscreen surfaces everywhere
  • Real-time speech and text translation
  • Tablets
  • Remote health monitoring, especially of the elderly
Additionally, it is interesting that some other predictions were not included in the videos, such as self-driving cars, drones, VR headsets (such as Microsoft's HoloLens).
You might also be interested in Corning's video of near-future technology and Microsoft's vision of the future (2011).
