Science fiction story

I’ve started work on my new story and it’s going to be sort of a near-future, science fiction story. I just need to figure out the setting first. In particular, what kind of technology would be available. The story takes place about ten years into the future and so far I have the following:

  • implanted AR systems
  • full-sensory VR (either through suits and goggles like in Ready, Player One or, if you’re willing to pay enough, through implanted hardware.)
  • Self-driving cars (No flying cars though)
  • Digital assistants (sort of like Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa, but far more advanced.)
  • Guns with hand-print recognition (to prevent anyone except autorised users to fire it.)

My question is: Is there some kind of tech that you think should be included in this sort of setting?

Robot nannies/ maids?

Jammers for the handgun hand-print recognition scanners, so the protagonist can avoid getting shot.
