Current technology today's kids may never use

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Many experts say the expansion of technology will move at a quicker pace over the next 15 to 20 years than ever before.

Where it took 20 years to develop a technology, it may now only take 2 or 3 years. That also means some of the things we all grew up will be soon going away.

For example:

  • Kids born today will probably never use a land-line to make a phone call.

  • They may never use a point-and-shoot camera or a hand-held camcorder because their phone will do it all.

  • A child being born today will never have to look for that lost remote control that's hiding under the couch, because there won't be remote controls.

  • And the DVD's will go the way of VHS.

Are all of these realistic or will some things stay around despite the jump forward in technology?

Will families still want the security of a land-line, because I think we can all agree, we'll still be dropping calls in a decade or not getting reception in certain parts of our home!

Something else that made this list was movie theaters. But, in the 1960s, when TVs became a part of every families home, people thought it was the end of Hollywood.

Could that prediction be wrong?
