I remember using a Television as my first peice of technology.
I think there will be somthing like 8g internet!
It would be super fast.
For phones I think there would be something like skype.
Finally T. V.
I imagine a voice activated T. V.

All of these are possible and likely to happen.
I hope all of these wishes come true

The first piece of technology I remember using was a Nintendo Gameboy when I was four years old.
I think technology is going to be like robots doing all my chores, flying cars that 14 year olds can drive, water proof touch screen 3-d tvs that I can watch in the bath tub, and just a lot of cool stuff in 5 years.

My first piece of technology was an apple computer. My Dad was a web programmer and I used to sit on his lap while he was working and drool all over his keyboard.
I think technology will improve to make life easier. For instance, jet pack belts that everyone will use to get around. There will be magnetic roads with floating cars so there is no more pollution. In 5 years, there will be a robotic teddy bear that can babysit. Yes, I think life will be a whole lot easier in 5 years.

The first piece of technology I remember using was the tv. I remember whathing it when I was very young.

In five years I think that technology will look much more different the it is now .I picture that there would be a mchine that would do all of your chores. There might be flying cars that would not have to run on gas.

My first piece of technology I think was a baby toy and a computer. I used to always go on the computer and see how it works and see it for myself. Baby toys were actually the first pieces because my parents wanted me to play with them and have a lot of fun. I think that we might have new iphones and new ipads and maybe someone will invent something new that is super cool!

omar cordy said...

The first piece of technology I remember using was my television.I always watch television first on xmas.I think in five years from now on the cell phone they will have something called 9g.On the computer you don't have to use a mouse you have touch screen.

I think technology is great. It will advance more and more as we get into the future. The first piece of technology I think I used was a T.V. I always watched T.V. But a couple years later I used a computer. Then I used a DS. Then I used a wii. Technology is the future. If we didn't have technolgy we would lose many things in life. In 5 years we might get 5g. Maybe people will have an ipad 3 or 4. The world is changing in many ways.

My first technology I remember touching was my fathers cell phone.I used to play with it by pressing buttons even though I didnt know what they did.
What I believe technology will look like in 5 year is that cell phone will be only ear phone and cars will drive on its own.

Mr. Casal said...

Great comments, everyone.

Keep up the good work.

The fist technology I ever used was whwn I was a young todler age 2, and it was telivision.
In a couple more years or decades technology will increase aggrisively unlike the time period today. Hyperthayically, in my head and in my imagination instead of the popular technoloy today known as an ipad, in my head in a couple more years and time period insetead of ipad it will chage tremodously. My opinion is that technology in a couple of years will make humans more lazy and technology will do all human work and needs so that humans don't have to do alot of arons.

And for this Christmas my dad bought me and my sisters the Wii. i Like it a lot because we dance and have the super Mario brow new game

The first piece of technology that I used was the computer and my dsi game. I think technology is great because without it I wouldn't be able to watch t.v. It is also cool because if it weren't for technology we would be living life in the olden days right now, and we would have to write, put the mail in an envalope, go outside to the post office, and wait like 2 days to get a responce. That's why I love technology.

Kate R. said...

I think my first piece of technology would be a ipod touch because I never got to touch my mom's iphone.I think the technology will look and be like in five years.It would look like on a phone here would be a bunch of buttons and controls.I think it would be like so confusing with all of the buttons and controls on the phone.

Gus said...

The first piece of technology I used was a nebulizer; it helped me when I had asthma.

I think technology will use some Star Wars technology because they made a robo arm and a laser cutter. So why can't they make the laser cutter have a limited amount of distance? So why can't they make a DC-15 blaster pistol or a DC-15 blaster rifle or a DC-17 pistol or a E-5 blaster rifle? Why can't they have a scientific experiment to create the force, although in five years it will still probably rely on special effects?

Mckenzie R said...

I dont quite remember the first technology I used, but my mom told me that when I was around 3 or 4 years old I used to enjoy learning to type on the computer. I do remember getting a DS for my birthday though.
I think that in 5 years technology will be really different. I think televisions would be voice activated to make it easier for both regular and disabled people to use. Which would be really cool.

steven J. said...

The first piece of technology I used was my game boy . Then I met a game cube. I think there are going to make more crazy stuff for games. And the last is Ipod touch with camera and my ps3.

IzayahO said...

I think my first piece of technology was my mom's sidekick that i used to call people.I think technology is cool because if there was no technology we would have to send letter's to people.I think in five years a phone would look like a screan with alot of bottons it would be really hard to do anything on the phone.It's not like that here that'swhy i love technology

Alex W. said...

The first piece of technology that I remembered using was the rear projection television. I watched kid’s shows most of the time. I looked at many different channels to see what shows I liked the most. Now, Sony has produced 3D televisions and glasses for us to feel more realistic whenever we watch any show.
In the next 5 years for our technology, I think all the drawers will be voice activated and controlled by the computers. So, it can open and close whenever we say, “Open!” Or “Close!”. Also, the televisions will turn on or change the channels depending on the voice commands.

Jennifer A. said...

My first piece of technology (high tech technology) was my sisters ipod touch. I was so amazed at what i could do at the touch of a finger. i used to think it was magic until my sister explained to me that its a "touch screen" and it works by a sensor reacting to the heat of your fingertips.

It was really awesome and I was glad she told me how the "touch screens" works

In 5 years we might possibly have "pop up light technology" like in the movie avatar where they show the pop up light model of pandora except in real life it would be part of the ipad and you can watch stuff in 4 D.

That is what i think technology will be like in 5 years.

My first piece of technology was my brother David"s gameboy and a Gateway computer. I was about 3 years old. I thought it was great.I really love the technology now. I have a camera connected to my computer so I can talk to my aunt Ive who lives in Florida. I can also see her while we are writing to each other.

Jake L said...

The first piece of technology that I remember using was a TV. I used to watch baby shows on it all the time. So did my sister. We would stay there for minutes without blinking. We loved it! I think in 5 years phones will sense brain waves and scientists will find a way to travel through time. We have already discovered a theory about time travel, we just need to find certain materials to build a machine to do it for us. I remember seeing Back to the Future 2, where these people traveled to 2015. There were hover boards, holograms (etc...). But I don't think we'll have all that stuff. Maybe in 2020 we'll have that.

Sophia L. said...

My first piece of technology was the TV. My eyes was glued on to the TV. and I was only 2! I think.......

I think TV will look like holograms and there won't be any cars any more. You will just think where you want to go and POOF, you're there.

Ruby G. said...

The first peace of technology was a toy computer.It was amazing to me at first and I did not know what to do.But I slowly learned what to do.

I think in 5 years someone will invent telling the computer what you want to write instead of typing it and robot maids.

Andy L. said...

My first technology was when I had my game boy when I was 4 years old. In 5 years technology will be improved.I think it will be improved because things have changed like now we have ipods, ipads,computers,and smartphones.

Alyssa V. said...

Well the first piece of technology I remember using is a Fisher Price camera. I remember going around my house and taking pictures of everyone and everything.
I think that in 5 years technology will all be in 4g, also it might all be in 3D. Like pictures and home videos, that would be cool.

Anna C.H.B. said...

I remember that the first piece of technology I used was my family's old tv. It had huge antennae and was very big and old. I remember watching things like Thomas the Tank Engine and Bob the Builder on it.
I think that in five years, there will be machines that brush peoples hair and teeth, there will be mind reading machines, and homework machines that don't have other people in them and actually work! There will be a bunch of cool stuff like that.

Annie B. said...

The first piece of technology that I remember using was television. It might have been a baby toy that I don't remember. In 5 years I think that we might have 3d screens without glasses. Not only for computers, but also for i pod touches, i phones, and i pads. For even later in the future, I think that for Skype and Facetime,the computer or thing that you are using will show a 3d image of the person and put it in the room you are in with some sort of light and it will look like the person is in your room and they are talking to you.

Moira K. said...

The first technology that I used was a cell phone. What I think technology will be like in 5 years. You can say computer go to Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing. It will go thare and it continue your lesson and you can say computer exit and it will exit the program. And that is what I think technology in 5 years!

The first peice of technology I remember using is my old DS. It was bight pink and had stickers on the front. I only remember having my DS from kindergarten to 1st grade.
In five years, I think technology will be more complex. People will invent things and they wil probably be more autimatic. Things that can do more, but you do less to make it work.

Sabrina.T. said...

The first piece of technology i remember using is the T.V.I think technology will take over every classroom in five years.Maybe instead of using text books we are going to start using i pads.

Chaya G. said...

The first technology I remember using was a big mouth bass toy. When you walk by it, its head moves and its mouth opens and it sings. I think in 5 years technology will be different. You will have a remote. The remote will have two buttons. One will say food and the other will say drinks. If you press food, it will ask if you want chicken, fish, corn and ice cream. If you press chicken a robot will go get the chicken and hand it to you.

Emma H. said...

I think the very first piece of technology I used was probably a light-up toy that I used as a baby. I think technology will be very complex in five years. Like food copy machines, flying cars and all sorts of crazy stuff.

Sakura C. said...

The first technology items I remember using when I was little, around 3 or 4 years old, were a LeapFrog and my own pink princess television. A LeapFrog is a computer educational system that teaches math and reading.
In 5 years I think someone will make the internet faster. Maybe you will be able to use your cell phone anywhere in the subway system. There will probably be an iPhone 7 or 8 by then.

mohammad a said...

Technology is really important because it helps us in our daily days.
I think the first , technology piece i me Mohammad a used was maybe a toy, flash light or something that clicks and lights up because i was very curious i touch a lot of light up toys.

The first piece of technology i used was a electric remote control car. i think technology will be like play station7. and voice operated mini little toy people that do work for you .

Jahlia Hernandez said...

I think that the firt piece of technology I used was a book that sang. I had it when I was a baby. The book was a Winnie the Pooh bear sing along book. If you wanted the book to sing you would have to press a button at the begining of the book. I used to love that book when I was little.
I believe that in five years we will have more electronics such as faster computers.I also think that we will have more realistic toy such as walking toys.

Charles H. said...

The first piece of technology I touched was a phone. Though it was my dad’s old one, I still liked it. Plus, I was two years old. So even a broken one pleased me, and dad let me keep it, so I was happy.
In 5 years I think technology will be like more iPads that are more powerful and easier to control. Maybe add the ability to do what you want it to just by thinking. Just talking doesn’t always work, but in your mind, you always get your way.

Gonzalez, Guadalupe said...

The first piece of technology I remember using first was a talking doll. It was a doll of a barbie kind. My older brother says that I never stopped playing it and never left the house without it until iIstarted school.
I think that technology will advance greatly in the future. there will probably be a cure to cancer or something more advanced thatn a 3dsi and smarter smartphones.

Jay T. said...

The first piece of technology that I remember using is a TV. I used to turn the switch on and off when I was little (and still do). In five years, I think that not much is going to change. Maybe there will be faster internet and better graphics in televisions, but I doubt there will be flying cars or voice activated televisions.

Infinity S.W said...

I think that the first piece of technology I had was a little Barbie labtop.I got it for my birthday, my third birthday.I think that technology has changed so much, in five years I think all phones will be ten times faster,cooler, and maybe in 3D but, I also think that now that Steve Jobs is not alive technology will change forever.

Jasmine Peralta class:4-411 said...

The first piece of technology that I remember using was a cell phone. I think in five years cars wouldn't pollute because there would be cars that would run on electricity instead of gas. I also think that in five years there would be refrigerators that would have ice inside of a little compartment that makes it cold.

The first piece of technology I used was a gameboy.I had a few games and I played with it a lot. I think technology 5 years from now will new and more useful.
It would be cool to see new phones and computers that look a little futuristic.

melissa rendon said...

The first piece of technology i remember using was a TV.I remember watching when i was very young about when i was 2years old.I think in five years technology will be different because in the past technology was really different.I also think that there could be a machine that could do your chores.

Brianna P. said...

The first piece of technology I remember using was "the PIRANHA PAD", PlayStation. I think that I was 3 years old. A few months later, I was using "the VIPER 2", PlayStation with the help of my uncle and sisters.

In 5 years from now, I think that technology will be a lot better. I think that it will be voice activated, with safety features like pupil and finger print recognition. That will be awesome to use.

keshanti said...

The first piece of technology I remember using was a gameboy.

In 5 years time i think technology will look like ,everything will be free and you can think it and it goes in your head,if you want to go somewhere but its to far then you press a button and it takes were you want to go.

Lucia F. said...

The first piece of technology I remember using was a camera and I was about 5 years old and very proud that i could take pictures and showed everyone i could. I think technology will be smaller and more portable and everything will have a much better lens.Also, I think people will invent a small button that you keep on a band around your finger and when you press it, it will automaticlly call your phone if you can't find it. And thats what i think.

Cornelius K. said...

It was either a phone of technology or a computer I used first.I think we wil a have a phone that is a hologram,so if we are talking to some one on the phone we haven't seen a while,we can see them on a hologram!It was make people very happy to see their best friend/sibling talk an see them at the same time.

Jennifer L said...

The first piece of technology i remember was my game boy and my phone.The second thing i remember was my lap top.

marc b said...

My first piece of technology was my gameboy express. I got really old games on it like tetress and pong. I also got some retro stuff like space invaders.

I think technology will be very advanced in 5 years. Like hand held will have 3D video cameras. Also everyone will have the fastest computers in the world in their house.
