What will the tech landscape of 2026 look like?

A decade from now, enough time would have elapsed that the tech landscape should look quite different from what it does today. I predict that by 2026, VR and AR technologies would have completely overtaken most major current tech markets, such as TVs, PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones, video game consoles, etc. Smartglasses and other AR technologies will be as commonplace as smartphones and laptops are today and most people will no longer own the latter. 4K, 8K and OLED technologies will be standard features of nearly all electronic displays and newer screen technologies such as volumetric displays, holography and telepresence might be on the market at this time although they will still be quite expensive and not yet mainstream. However, AR and VR technologies would have disrupted so many markets by now that volumetric displays and holographic displays will be mostly marketed towards businesses so that they could be used as signs for advertisements and the like. IoT (or whatever it will be called in 2026) will be a concept that is now understood by most of the general public and its importance will be recognized. IoT technologies will become embedded in the fabric of everyday living and will make the Internet seem to “disappear” as it becomes so ubiquitous that people will, “no longer think about going online, they just are.” IoT and cognitive computing has started to change the world in so many different ways, such as how the World Wide Web changed the world after its conception. 3D printers will have matured enough so that they are now relatively inexpensive and useful for the average consumer. By now, 3DPs might actually become a common household product that could be in nearly a quarter of homes across the developed world and in many businesses and factories. Drone delivery services will exist in most cities by now as the technology has advanced enough to avoid almost all obstacles and the FAA has finally introduced new regulations in regards to drones. Fully automated vehicles will exist by now and you’ll occasionally see them on the roads with the newest models along with many partially automated vehicles. Fully automated aircraft will most likely also exist by now as well. Automation technology in general has taken over a sizeable portion of basic rote jobs such as delivery services, driving (taxis, freight, etc.), janitors, chefs, fast food employees, dishwashers, etc. Along with automation, household robots will have progressed quite significantly and there will be an entire thriving market of new appliances based on these technologies. Legitimate hoverboards and automated skycars might actually be on the market too but they will certainly be expensive and not something that the average consumer could afford. So what else do you guys think will happen to the tech landscape by 2026? Any thoughts?
