Technology and technological change could soon make a lot of jobs and physical things disappear.

Steve Sammartino, Author and Futurist spoke with 3AW’s Tom Elliott about the dematerialisation of our society.

‘If we have enough information we can replace physical things with the virtual version of it,’ says Steve.

Tom and Steve made a list of things that are/or soon will be no longer physical:

  • Calendar

  • Compass
  • Calculator
  • Spirit Level
  • Newspaper
  • Diary
  • Video Camera
  • Clock
  • TV
