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?
