Part A

Homes

<
individual work>


All of our homes are filled with a vast amount of technology. Most
of you have televisions,
DVD players, computers, telephone answering machines, washing machines, central heating
and burglar alarm systems.

New advances are being made all the time and what is currently considered as belonging to
the realm of science ficti
on may soon become the gadgets of tomorrow.


In this
project
,
you

will look at some technology which currently exists in homes, what
technology will be there in the future and what your ideal home would look like.


Watch the following video clip from Y
ouTube:

Future Technology can help us a lot in the future we could use it every day even now we
use technology every day for leisure we can use voice command computers all around the
house making life easy by just telling what you want for ex: a
temperature change in the
house. For work it would be much better with future technology you could work on the go
with simple devices that can hold your whole office in in the future I think that everything
will be done on a computer or a handheld device t
hat has friendly user interface. Family and
health can benefit from this technology with family everyone stays connected even if there
not close they can stay in contact with each other with health we would have better health
equipment in hospitals and for

use by everybody we would be pretty advanced.

W
rite a
paragraph

explaining how the future developments in the
field

of transport might
affect the way that we travel for leisure and work.

(minimum

80 words)

(15 marks)




Well in das future transportation will improve a lot because of the improvements we
have done for example the fancy flying machine (aeroplane) a manmade magical beast that
takes over the skies from the first
plane that flew which only carried one person and later
on carried guns which was used in the First World war after that the plane developed in to
bigger planes that carried many people which can the fly over countries and oceans and
now we have the jumbo
jets that carry cargo and people.


If we can advance from this I would say that the future of transportation can change
at a huge rate and eventually we will come up with better leisure

cars and planes we will
eventually come up with cars that you can sta
nd up in and move around freely without
opening a door to get out and back in and we would have planes with enough leg room for
people to sleep. So in the future or now even we can have developments that can change
how we work and have our leisure spent an
d maybe we will even have auto drive like auto
pilot.
