    “Email, computer keyboards, cash, handheld phones.”
    CLARA SHIH

    “The computer mouse will be replaced. Think touch, swipe, rich hand gestures. Owning a car in an urban environment.”
    REID HOFFMAN

    “Your charger. All of our devices should be able to wirelessly charge. Wireless power will also be a necessity in developing countries.”
    SUSAN WOJCICKI

    “Keys.”
    SEBASTIAN THRUN

    Smartphones. Instead, people will wear computers in the form of contact lenses, bracelets or clothing and “walk up to any wall and instantly have full access to all of your cloud data and services.”
