Atlanta 2040: What life will look like in the city’s third century

We’ll be on iPhone 27

I think people will have rocket boosters on their cars. Traffic will go way faster, and cars will hover instead of use wheels. The jobs people will work at will be complicated with very hard math and technology. Maybe there will be ovens that make your breakfast when you say “make pancakes” and beds that put on your pajamas and get you a pillow. The buildings on the skyline will be taller than they are right now. I don’t think people will use airplanes much. The airplanes will have wheels, and the cars will fly. We’ll be on the iPhone 27. Kids will still study at schools, but they’ll have better technology. It will be very complex.
