Robots will roam your home doing I’m-not-quite-sure what except scaring your pets, but that’s okay because you’ll be gleefully tracking how much activity that fear is generating. You’ll be printing your food and replacement body parts. When you look up, the sky will be crammed with flying cameras. And there’ll be TV screens everywhere, curved, transparent and rolled up in your bag.
