In the advanced era of 21st century, men are becoming more lethargic than ever before and technological development is one of the main reasons for that. We are purely dependent on machines for home or office works because it gives us more convenient life style and fulfill all possible needs without even leaving our home. I believe that in the future with the development in technology, we will completely rely on machines for majority of our work loads and will have more leisure time than any past generation.
Firstly, people who work in offices or factories prefer to do less physical tasks and like to rely on computers or other machines to do their jobs. For example: computers or machinery nowadays perform so many tasks that people used to do manually. Online shopping, food home delivery, recreational stuffs on TV, payment of bills and quality time on social media, all can be done without leaving the sofa. Transport is another example of technological development, which has decreased the distance, and people use vehicles even for short distance, and avoid walking. In one sense they are making people lazy. However in another sense, this is enabling people to have more free time to spend with friends and family members.
Again, female no longer need to be spend all day to take care of their kids and doing other household duties. They rely on washing machines, vacuum cleaners, cooking range machines and these devices and that have enabled them to have more free time than past generation would ever imagine. Undoubtedly, technology will advance in the future more rapidly and we will rely on them for more works. Thus a future is waiting for us when we will have machines and robots do our tasks.
In the future with the more advancement of technology, like self-driven car and robotic systems people will engross in less physical activities and will rely on machines to do our jobs. Artificial intelligent e.g. robotic system will play a role of servants in order to serve humanity. They will take care of new born baby and old sick person, which will facilitate us to have more leisure time but intimacy, pettiness, loyalty and sympathy would reduce among us.
