Tech pundits spend a lot of time wondering about the next black rectangle — that is, the next touchscreen mobile or tablet computer. How many inches and pixels of screen will it have? How many cores? How thin and light will it be? But we all know those questions will only apply for a few more years at most.

If you observe the trends in sensors, networked objects, and AI, it begins to seem inevitable that, while they’re certainly the present, black rectangles are not the future. Computing can be much more intelligent and subtle than that. It can blend in and enhance our environment. Think visual or auditory signals triggered by the world around you, not navigating through apps on a screen.

In fact, the most innovative tech companies are already working on getting hardware and software out of our way entirely, so that we don’t have to really use them at all. They just happen.
