Kayode, We may not be able to accurately predict what the future of electronics will be but we can use some metrics to come as close as possible. I agree with you that a good pointer towards what the future holds could be "our needs." Companies respond to perceived societal needs and this could be useful in determining what kinds of products we would be using years from now.

The most successful manufacturers, however, don't try to figure out what we need: they just simply make what they think we would like, then market them as if we've always needed them! Others take a more simplistic approach. They simply take what we have now and make them easier to use, turning an old product into a new and must-have product. That's the story behind Apple's iPhone, iPod and iPad.

@ Adeniji

I agree Our requirements will be accomplished through Electronics.

but now if we look what we had imagined or dreamt long back is becoming true . In the same things will happen in a faster pace and will add a new value to all our lives.

@ Saranyati,

i,m not sure if our imagination can really pridict what electronics could be like in the nearest future.

One thing that gives direction to what this could be is our needs ans so because of that, electronics will continue to be smartly smart.

Companies have to find a way to make money from these innovations otherwise they'll continue to keep them on dusty shelves.

Yes Bolaji, i totally agreed with that.  Take driver-less vehicle for an instance - Google, Stanford university and other frontiers are making drastic measure in pushing this to full commercialization. Last few days, Volvo testing convoy of driverless vehicles on the road in Spain.

It is becoming evident more businesses & organizations are moving towards virtualization, and this would probably be experienced in emerging and matured markets. We still have to take quick measure to address this: continous growing in dependency on internet is another angle worth critical analysis - cybercrime and cybersecurity as well its governance.

In my opinion it is a matter of market's power for "absorbing" innovation; tablet or smartphone for example, initially, were more expensive than other techs, but the power for absorbing them was tremendous, then the topic could be "technology and innovations yes but only easy to use "

I can't wait for the self-driving vehicle. I agree there's a lot of innovative products that are in development and which will change the way we relate to others, live, work, etc. However, the slow pace of product introduction and even slower adoption rate may mean many of these technologies will get to market much later than we imagine.

It all comes down to profit not just functionality. Companies have to find a way to make money from these innovations otherwise they'll continue to keep them on dusty shelves.

I agree with you and in addition, if we consider 10 years horizon as per Bolaji's article, we would also consider evolution for interplanetary communications and technology-ecosystem to provide them, it seems key players as Google, for example, are really active in the segment.
