- Better and more intuitive devices interaction
- Everyday devices connected to the Internet
- Multi-touch, without touching the screen
- Interactive and intuitive user interfaces for better browsing
- Gesture based interfaces
- Interfaces aware of context
- New materials that will influence UI
While I agree with the list in general there is something I do not like about it: this list is purely determined by technological advances.
We will see changes in almost all areas of society: how we shop, how we love, how we go about politics, what we regard as value, etc.
So I add some other (very speculative and spontaneous) ideas that are not so much based of the hardware innovation:
- Laws that require users have ideal control over privacy issues (hopefully!)
- Programmable operating systems on any device with good scurity
- Redundant storage on different locations that “logically cloud together” in a personal and searchable environment
- Working culture that permits more work “on the road” as before (specifically regarding the social aspects involved in this)
- Affordable plans for wireless connectivy and low-priced roaming
- Architectural advances that integrate media and new display/projection technologies into the interior environments
