The future is “smart”

So you are excited about your smart phone. Remember the first day you had it? How exciting was that to scroll down the screen with the motion of your thumb? How about shooting angry birds with different angles and directions with your sliding fingers? Amazing, really.

Soon, these “smart” features, often defined as a set of highly interactive phenomena between man and machine, would engulf everything around us. Smart Tv is now a reality. Nike is already producing wearable smart device that would monitor your car, including fuel level. Coming up next are smart homes, smart lighting, smart vacuum cleaner, smart car that does not need a driver! You ask for anything with smart features, you have it soon in your hand.

So are you ready to handle a “smart” future?

    In most of the cases, smart things make our lives easier. Now world has become so complicated. The overpopulation, pollution, wastage, shortage of time against abundance of tasks- all of these have made human lives so puzzling. In this sense, smart things can come up with relieving features. But there should always be an edge. It is true that ‘electronic brains’ make the human brains mute. People must not forget the basic ways of calculations or tasks. The more we nurture our brain, the more it will be able to generate ideas.

    Because of the shortage of time in most of the places people have diverted to ready-made foods instead of home-made items cooked by themselves. So, if people start ‘smart-cooking’ (by automatic devices), there might only be a limited number of recipes available and innovations in cooking will be lost one day!
