M4 - The Future Of The Internet

  1. 1. The Future of the Internet<br />M4 Computing<br />
  2. 2. The Future of the Internet<br />Let’s take a look at how we think the internet will develop in the future.<br />What do you think will be different about the internet in a few years time?<br />
  3. 3. More Availability<br />The Internet is already available on our PCs, laptops, games consoles, PDAs (Personal Data Assistants) and mobile phones.<br />Computer scientists have developed new uses for the internet, for example:<br />Internet TV<br />Internet in Cars<br />Internet Fridges<br />Virtual Reality<br />
  4. 4. Internet Television<br />In the future will we need both television and internet?<br />It is likely that TV and internet <br /> will be combined together. <br />Why should we have to wait until 6 o’clock to watch our favourite TV show? Go to a TV website, click on the show, and enjoy your TV program whenever you have time.<br />
  5. 5. Internet Television<br />Internet TV may be more interactive.<br />The viewer can respond and reply to the “TV”. For example, you can immediately vote for your favourite singer on The Star. No more waiting for phone results.<br />You may be able to take part in game shows, quizzes, surveys and competitions through your interactive TV.<br />
  6. 6. Internet Fridges<br />Internet fridges are in the stores already.<br />In the future these fridges will probably be able to order your food when you run out, tell you if your food has gone bad and suggest recipes. <br />Or you could just use Hi5 while you make dinner....<br />
  7. 7. Internet in Cars<br />Already available in some models. <br />Can receive up to the minute traffic news, directions, as well as local information.<br />Feeling tired and need a hotel? Log on to the internet and locate the nearest one.<br />If your car is approaching a red light or police checkpoint, maybe the Internet will tell you to slow down.<br />
  8. 8. Virtual Reality<br />Virtual - not real, but created by a computer to seem real and lifelike. <br />Games like World of Warcraft and The Sims have already created online virtual communities.<br />Scientists and writers have always believed in the future we will be able to create interactive virtual worlds. <br />
  9. 9. Virtual Reality<br />What is the future?<br />How lifelike will virtual reality be?<br />Imagine plugging yourself into the Internet and finding yourself skiing in Switzerland, playing tennis with your friend from England, driving a Formula 1 car at Monte Carlo or having coffee with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie...<br />
  10. 10. Task Today<br />We have learnt about some new and future possible Internet technologies today.<br />Now it is your turn – you may work in pairs.<br />Use your imagination, try and think of other ways the Internet will change our lives, and the lives of future generations.<br />Create a blog and add it to the website. <br />
  11. 11. Task Today<br />The title of your blog should be:<br />The Future of Computing<br />Use the Internet for ideas and images, but please do not just cut and paste work from the net.<br />Try and write about 200 words.<br />
