The video titled “The Future” presented to us in class was interesting to watch. AT&T certainly had some far-fetched Ideas. I believe that most of this technology may become a reality in the future. I don’t think that a “CIA” will be a reality. That would entail a lot of programming and computer voice learning. Granted there are voice synthesizers, but how would you get a computer to recognize all speech patterns or words? I don’t know, maybe it is possible. Some of the items
shown have already been invented, like the videophone. He certainly did not seem very comfortable with a lot of these gizmos and gadgets. So there is another technology that has been invented already. One class member seemed to think that the videophones on airplanes would never be a reality. It could generate different stages of the buildings structure, or show the current building on the site they were planning to build on. The "computer viewer" He had was a handy little tool for him. It also had video conferencing availability. Fortunately the building was saved after the Director talked his boss into viewing the "video card". When the Dad in the video was looking at the building his company wanted to build in place of an old building before him, he seemed a bit worried. There are already cell phones with cameras or video cameras. I tend to disagree because this is possible with satellite technology that we already have, and I don"tmt see why you could not have them on an airplane. These were two of the technologies that I saw the Dad use in his daily life, the "Computer Viewer" and the "Video Card". He used a "video card" to present to his boss to try and save the building. Overall, if the ideas have already been thought of, it will probably become a reality in the future.
