A Free And Open World

We’ve all heard the dream of “creating an open world”, usually spoken during tech conferences or plastered on smartphone and laptop boxes. But do we know what it really means?

In this segment, much like the Day In The Life Of 2025 article, we’ll provide an insight into what an open world will look like.

Picture this: You walk into a museum with your family and friends. You admire the beautiful display of paintings and sculptures, but you don’t notice any writing around them describing what you’re seeing. Why? Because your augmented reality glasses display the information around you.

The HUD (Heads Up Display) tells you that you’re looking at ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch, created in between 1893 and 1910.

After the museum, you and your friends decide to go out to lunch. Since you’re in downtown New York City, you opt for the taxi. Pulling up an app on your phone, Google Glass, or smartwatch, you page for a taxi. A yellow, automatic cab drives up to the curb. You hop in, tap your phone to the NFC chip and pay the fare.

Later that day, you decide to blog about your adventure.

You and your friend’s pull up their tablets and cloud-based laptops and you create a document using Google Docs. You share the document and allow your friends to contribute to your blog. After blogging, you decide to download the newest Spielberg film from a file-sharing website, and watch it with your friends.

Once you return home, your smartphone communicates with your residence and electronics around the house come to life. This is just a taste of what an open world will soon provide.

Information such as scientific journals will be freely available to the public, and using an amalgamation of computer devices, you can view this information anywhere you are. File-sharing will no longer be illegal, and songs, movies, and computer software won’t be locked into copyright laws. Artists and entertainers will create their work for free, and they’ll make their money during concerts and merchandise purchases.

An open world is a very promising concept.

If all our electronics communicate together, we’ll be able to use sensors in cities to detect pollution and radiation, stop crime before it happens, get rid of annoying wires and cables that pile up in landfills, and create a better planet where technology and nature coexist.
