One day you will wake up and find yourself in one smart home, where devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) will automatically adjust lights, temperature and even your favorite music. Your coffee machine, thanks to the sensors IoT, will prepare your espresso the way you like it, while you take a look at the SmartWatch to find out how pressure, blood sugar and other parameters are going by reading personalized advice. Hello, friend: start a new hyper-connected day.
Let's go to job?
Magari it won't be every day, but you will also happen to go in person. Your car (or public transport a autonomous driving), naturally hyper-connected, will take you to work. You will take advantage of the journey to browse your personalized feeds with videos that interest you or news selected for you and broadcast in 8K, thanks to the speed and low latency of 5G.
During the journey, the built-in IoT sensors in the street they will charge vehicles without wires and intelligent systems they will handle the traffic to get you to your destination smoothly.
In the office, the hyper-connected day will continue between meetings in virtual conference rooms and collaborative projects with augmented reality apps (to view and interact with data in real time). In the meantime, the IoT sensors will take care of creating the optimal environment with suitable lights, sounds and temperatures.
And in your spare time?
After work you need some physical activity, even better if outdoors. Bikes? Outdoor gym? Jogging? Yours viewers and your AR fitness app will be your personalized and motivating guide, transforming the activity into an even more stimulating journey.
At home, a nice shower and go out with friends. The social life? Always hyper-connected, but with discretion: looking into each other's eyes even if notifications arrive. Long gone are the days when people at the table were all with their heads in their smartphone display. How the hours go by when you're having fun! It's already time to go home.
Hyperconnected is the night
Once at home, the IoT devices will create the perfect atmosphere for you to relax, while you enjoy a virtual reality movie that will transport you to another world, accompanying you towards a well-deserved rest.
Before you go to sleep, your (guess what? hyper-connected) bedroom will create a peaceful atmosphere to recharge you. A smart mattress it will adapt to your sleeping patterns and posture, ensuring maximum comfort.
Your hyper-connected day ends here, but not the work of your IoT devices, which will continue to monitor your sleep, ready to welcome you the next day to wake up synchronizing with your natural circadian rhythm.
Towards another hyper-connected day.
Technology is evolving rapidly and changing our lives in ways we never imagined. Obviously, never take literally descriptions like this, which is somehow "two-dimensional" and only serves to list predictions.
Even the hyper-connected life will have its troubles, it certainly won't be rosy. But perhaps, if technologies are evolved enough to serve us and do so discreetly, entering our daily lives, it will seem more comfortable than it is now.
