Auntie Beeb covers the story of "a wide-ranging survey produced by the South Korean government to find out what consumers will want from future technologies." The survey also features long-range predictions gleaned from interviews carried out with about 3,500 of the country’s technology experts, including online smell-o-vision within a decade, a two-month duration for mobile phone batteries before they’ll need recharging, and routine robot surgery (that’s by robots, not on them) by 2018.
