Subject: What's next after digital age?

Written By: muppethammer26 on 08/28/16 at 11:09 am

The transition from the analog age into the digital age was one of the biggest ever.  Digital bought many great changes that we have today.

Similar to how digital replaced analog, what could replace digital in the future?

The hologram age, I suppose.

Quantum age! Back to my sci-fi books.

Really though, I think automation is the next phase in technology. It's super easy to do, so it's only a matter of time really.

I'd pray for the virtual age, but that probably won't be for another several decades. I agree with NewYorkEagle, that holograms will become the next huge technology, probably emerging dominant in about two decades from now.

According to Wikipedia, the digital revolution, began between the late 1950's and late 1970's.

To me, the digital age had its roots between that time. Although, the technology that we see today was mainstream since the 80s, as I believe to myself. This may include personal computers and cartridge-based video game consoles.

Virtual/Augmented Reality or Hologram Age.

It would be interesting to see what the future will bring us once the digital era ends.

The quantum age. The LHC is under construction and will be in operation, I've heard from a science class that people are trying to produce nuclear fusion as an energy resource and quantum computers may replace classical computers for specialised tasks due to the difficulties in improving computing performance with current methods.

I'd say the Holographic Age. Soon the idea of using a physical monitor on a computer/TV/mobile device would become obsolete as people would move over to holographic screens. The thing I'm wondering is when the Digital Age will come to an end. I'm sure it will happen, but I'm not sure if it'll be in this century or the upcoming ones.
