LIFE IN THE FUTURE

1. What will life for teenagers be like in the year 2050? For a start, computers will be everywhere and they’ll do

everything for us. We won’t have alarm clocks in the future. A picture in your bedroom will become a computer
screen and it’ll wake you up and say hello. You’ll walk into the kitchen and the toaster and coffee machine will
recognize your voice and automatically make you your breakfast.

Your computer will remind you to do your homework. You won’t need text books because they will be digital.
You’ll walk to school as usual. On the way you decide to buy a snack at a café. You’ll use a smart card to pay for
it, because nobody carries money any more. You won’t need a PIN number for your smart card, because a laser
will scan the iris of your eye and identify you.

In your classroom the top of your desk will become a computer screen. You’ll touch the screen to connect to the
Internet, but you won’t need to write anything because it will be saved in your mind.

You won’t have to go to the shopping center to buy your clothes. You’ll buy a sweater online and it’ll be the right
size because a computer will scan your body.

Everyone will have a touch screen phone with GPS, so you’ll never get lost. The bad news is that your parents
will use the GPS to know exactly where you are!
People won´t get sick because pollution will disappear, everyone will use clean energy.
