The future of typing

  • Predictive text reinforces certain speech and serves as a reminder that no one is that original.
  • The future of typing may involve fewer misspellings and slightly less work.
  • In a few years, computers could play an even more active role in how we write. Eventually, we may not even need a keyboard to type, and could instead pantomime the movements.
  • Or maybe a neural implant like the one Elon Musk is pushing will usher in “think-to-type” technology. Depending on how such technologies are adapted, and by whom, typing itself may ultimately become obsolete.
