      The only thing for certain is that anyone that predicts it will be wrong!. Electonic devices will get cleverer to the point when we do not need keyboards and the voice will be enough to control them.We are nearly there but they are pretty bad at the moment.
      Devices will get better and better and we will become more dependent on them. Regards Robin

      I would like to see the clever controlling electronics that help minimise our energy use become more widely used. Even if they only reduce energy use by 5% by switching off things we aren’t using or extending battery life, it would make a big difference if they were used in all electronic products.

      I think I agree with Becky. Electronics will become smaller and smaller – that is for sure. These smaller electronics will first be used in consumer devices and then hopefully in more environmentally friendly ways. However, I don’t know how sustainable this is.
