Communication and Socialisation in the year 2030
(Alice Weil and Portia Reynolds-Pringle)


This YouTube video shows us how communication in 2030 will be like and how it will affect us around the world. It also shows us different ways of how we will be able to communicate and socialize in the year 2030.

The cell phone has developed from the old hand lifted device to the new “carry anywhere” phone of today or more commonly known as the “mobile phone and it will continue to develop.
Technology will feed that as they develop eye and ear accessories that are always connected and will blend with our bodies.
In less than ten years we will be able to go online onto the internet with the help of a new kind of contact lenses. This means that first we will have continuous audio and video contact with anyone we know. More specifically, we will learn to “dial”, speak to and communicate with anyone as if they are in the room with us. As the technology improves, it will become part of our body rather than an accessory we wear. Our eyeballs have plenty of room inside to hold full colour laser projectors that write directly to the retina with a resolution far beyond that of any
ordinary human. Remember, our eyes have a simple lens - nothing like the high quality lens even on a cheap camera.
We will have wires inside of us making us wired organisms. We will cease to talk to anyone beyond arms length without automatically slipping into internet connection mode. It will be seamless. And so much more intense than ordinary face to face conversation. To speak to someone beyond ten feet away, our electronic connection will take over and bring them face to face with us through the eye and ear that is internet connected.

The phone glove-.

This glove joins our telecommunications devices into a stylish and functional
clothing accessory while keeping the bulky phone out of the way. OK, maybe a glove phone isn't a great leap forward in technology or ergonomics, but it's hard to deny the goofy fun of answering a call with your thumb and pinky finger. In fact, Bradbury's tinkering hints at a trend that has received a lot of academic attention: wearable computing. Many futurists believe that our communications devices will eventually become cheap enough to simply be joined into the elements of our everyday clothes. Several Bluetooth helmets have been developed for skiing and motorcycling from companies such as Marker and Motorola, and jackets that plugs into all of your gear.
