A new report shows what life might be like 100 years now. It describes skyscrapers that are much taller than today's buildings, underwater 'bubble' cities, and holidays space. The report is Samsung's SmartThings. It asked experts space, architecture, and city planners to give their ideas life 2116. They said the way we live, work and play will be totally different to how we do these things today. The experts said that 25 years ago, people could not imagine how the Internet and smartphones would change our lives. The Internet has revolutionised the way we communicate, learn and do daily things. The experts said the changes the next century would be even more unbelievable.

Researchers questioned 2,000 adults the predictions they thought were most likely to happen the future. They predicted that the future, few people will go to an office but will work home and have virtual work meetings. People will have advanced 3D printers that will let you download a design furniture or a food recipe and then 'print' the sofa, table or pizza home. There will also be less need visits to the doctor. We will all have a home health capsule that will tell us what the problem is and give us treatment. We will also be going space holidays and to get resources that we have used on Earth. A prediction that was missing was whether people would still need to study English.
