The Post Truth

No hoverboards, no flying cars and the things that are actually going to be real  are still years ahead of being considered the future.

What is our future?

We called it the Digital Age. Yes it was for a time. Yes we have advanced when it comes to technology and information. But hardly reminiscent of how we label such a period.

Sadly, this is The Post-Truth Period. A period where despite hard facts made available via information and techology, people still opt to hear lies. Hoax. Bogus.

We are the future, but we are still far from it.

Brucal, Camielle M. ACT 181 The future perceived as shown in the eyes of the author is the truth about what we are now and what will happen in the future. Unfortunately, the truth about the future is disturbing given that technology and the new media is now everything. We tend to rely on the information shown in the internet and believe the lies shown on it. For me, the innovation that will set off a milestone are smartphones. Companies of smartphones never stops on innovating their technology and I guess it will set off a milestone. We can use… Read more »

FRANCES NICOLE GENETA BS ACT 181 The future perceived based on the bloggers perception is a knowledge and opinion about technologies not only in present but on how it will become in the future. Another is that, How does it affect us and how we people believed on it as if technologies are the ones who controls us. I think an innovative technology to set off a milestone is a smartphone because we people can’t just live without it anymore. Apparently it is already part of someones daily lives, because it can do a lot of things, like being your… Read more »

Since smartphone is the most accessible technology in today’s generation, I must say that innovation for a smartphone would set off a milestone.

The future perceived by the author is ambiguous well in fact we live in an ever-connected world where every information can be shared in less than one second. The rise of new technology enhanced the communication of people around the world. Technically, this allowed them to express through different user-generated media such as websites and blogs.

For me the innovation that would set off a milestone is the flying cars. Why? Because it will be convenient to us when we want to go to the other places. There will be no traffic and no hassle. Flying cars requires much smaller parking space and it is more convenient than a car. It has the structures of cara and airplanes so that theres a little possibility that the flying cars will be popular.
