http://blackhawk-mines.blogspot.nl/2013/01/the-future-is-now-what-we-imagined-for.html
Predicting the future is hard, but that doesn’t stop us from trying. We’re Wired, after all.

Ten years ago, we boldly declared that we’d be living with phones on our wrists, data-driven 

goggles on our eyes and gadgets that would safety-test our food for us. Turns out, a lot of 

the things Sonia Zjawinski conceptualized in our “Living in 2013” feature way back in 2003 

were remarkably close to what we’ve seen. We even got the iPhone right (sort of).

And so, as we look back on life in 2013 circa 2003, we’re going to spin it forward once again 

to tell you what life will be like in 2023.

Predicted for 2003 (above):

Apple redefined the desktop, laptop, and MP3 player. The next insanely great thing: an LCD 

arm cuff that includes a PDA, wireless Internet, a mini iPod, and, of course, a phone. The 

iPhone bracelet's motion sensor allows you to scroll through apps and files with the flick of 

a wrist, its clasp holds a digicam for use during video calls, and its wireless ear clip lets you 

listen and speak to callers. And everything can be done via voice recognition or touchscreen. 

Delivered in 2013:

Hey, it turns out, Apple gave us an iPhone after all! We got the name right, and even seemed 

to know about FaceTime. But the form factor details? Not so much. While you can wear an 

iPod nano as a watch, or make a call with your iPhone, if you want the watch-plus-phone 

combination that we teased you with 10 years ago, for now you'll need to pick up a secondary 

gadget that can transmit to your phone, like this Pebble.

Looking ahead to 2023:

Here's the thing, the screen on a watch is simply too small to display lots of data. And as an 

input device? Forget it. Yet keeping your phone out of sight means you often can't interact with 

your data on the go. The obvious answer is a variable size display. Samsung has already 

demonstrated a pretty convincing foldable OLED display prototype. Given 10 more years, we can 

easily see one screen serving multiple purposes by taking on multiple form factors, depending on

whether you wanted to simply glance at it to read a message, or unfold it to write your reply.
