A Day in the Life of 2025

6.45 A.M.

A beeping bedside alarm awakens you. Sunlight peeks in through the glass window, temporarily blinding your unadjusted eyes, but with a quick swipe of your hand, the glass becomes opaque, simultaneously turning on a dim bedroom light. In the kitchen, you hear the coffeemaker spring to life, perfectly synced with the alarm clock.

7:30 A.M.

Your electric car hummed on 10 minutes ago, pre-programmed to cool the interior, check the weather, and update the GPS before your trip. Today, you’re heading into the city for an important meeting with a client. Your car alerts you that traffic is rather congested, so you opt for the Metro transit. Finding your destination on the vehicle GPS, you allow the car to drive while you extract your tablet computer and view last-minute notes and details. News flashes on the dashboard TV, displaying recent development on the Mars colony.

8:00 A.M.

Parking in the lot just outside the Metro station, you arrive 5 minutes ahead of the next departure. Walking through the lobby, you swipe your phone past the Near Field Communication scanner, which accepts your virtual ticket, and allows you to proceed towards the train platform. You barely hear the hybrid carriage as it glides into the station, right on time.

11:30 A.M.

Your meeting with the client complete, you plan for the next event on your schedule; visiting company headquarters in the United Kingdom. You explore the GPS for the nearest ET3 Transatlantic Station in New York, and program the car to that destination. In the years since Tube travel replaced airplanes as primary long-distance transports, you have found this futuristic experience to be both time-saving and enjoyable.

1:15 P.M.

A robotic porter greets you upon arrival and takes your bags, concurrently informing you that a taxi is waiting outside the station. It’s a busy day in the London Heathrow lobby, but with your frequent traveller pass, you skip through security and quickly find the taxi. The automatic voice of the driverless vehicle queries your destination, and you swipe your phone to pay the toll.

6:00 P.M.

After a long day of work, you’re ready to return home and relax before another big day tomorrow; renovations on your newly purchased South Carolina residence. The 3D Construction Corp. is scheduled to arrive in the morning with their massive Home Builder 3D printer, which assembles infrastructures in a matter of days. It’s the fastest method you have time for, since handcrafted construction takes weeks. You ride the taxi back to Heathrow station, and hop on the Tube.

9:45 P.M.

Disembarking at your flat, you park the car and walk into the house. The newly installed sliding-door opens once it detects your phone’s GPS signal, and welcomes you home. Just as in the morning, your appliances have been scheduled for different tasks in the evening. Classical music starts playing, the TV comes on, and your voicemail reads both text messages and missed calls. Rather than sit through the nightly news, you decide to crash for the evening. With a simple press of a button, your home shuts down, and you fall into bed, another day accomplished.
