When Computers Are Obsolete

Today’s Daily Prompt said to envision life without computers.  At first I went Luddite and imagined a low-tech existence but that makes no sense.  I am not going to scrap the incredible capability and connectedness that I have gained from computers hand-in-hand with the internet.

When I get rid of my computer it will be because a more advanced technology has arrived.

I already know what I want. It is essentially an iPad with a great keyboard and ginormous screen.  Specifically, I want:

  • a screen of fabulous quality with a weight that is lighter than light. The screen will fold to the size of a credit card and expand to become enormous. There will also be the option to project holographically.
  • a keyboard that is as comfortable to use as a late model electric typewriter. This will be a virtual keyboard that I can set on a desk or in my lap or on a wall. The keyboard will serve as a guide when I type but my post-computer device will sense the movement and positions of my fingers rather than my touch on the keyboard.

Please let me know when my new device is ready to ship.
