Infographic: What Will The Internet Look Like In 100 Years?

We live in interesting times. In an age where there Internet is always available and accessible for many people. From connecting via dialup connections to having multiple devices in homes and offices that are constantly connected to the web.

All that in a matter of a decade, and some.

But thinking what form the Internet will be in the next century is very much beyond anyone’s vision. Sure, the devices will be mobile, and much more powerful, but what form the connected world will take in say a 100 years from now, that is hard to guess.

This infographic tries to answer this question:

“Wearable technology and augmented reality are coming to a year near you. Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies are tipping into the mainstream. Internet-giving balloons and delivery drones will soon be battling for air space. Dog translation hardware is close to reality.”

More than predictions, it focuses on current technologies that will probably be expanded and refined upon in the years to come, including new forms of connectivity (Project Loon), the so called Internet of Everything, and also touches upon topics like online security and privacy.

Forget 100 years, where do you see the Internet in the next 20?

Is it going to be a simple evolution of currently available technologies, or do you believe something revolutionary is just around the corner? Leave your prophetic thoughts in the comments!

  • It’s almost impossible to fathom. As this infographic illustrates however, there will be crazy things coming relatively soon and quickly that will continue to blow all of our minds. I can’t believe we’ve made it this far.

  • Incredible. My brain can’t even comprehend drones delivering items to the doorstep within hours of ordering. Absolutely mind-blowing. I’m just going to trying and adapt with the times.

    • I’ve been waiting for this to become a reality. Great for consumers, very bad for business storefronts. Online shopping will only become more popular. Smart to jump onboard now!

  • Real time translation is something I never really thought much about, but will be a huge advancement. As technology grows, the world shrinks. Connecting with anyone in the world will continue to get easier and easier.

  • Nice graphic. I’m especially curious to see how good and complex wearable technology can get. We have only scratched the surface thus far.

    • Agree with you. A long ways to go in that aspect. I’ve never really been able to enjoy wearable technology without getting a headache. I hope that changes in the future. I expect it will.
