Quora Answer : What would be the major consumer product(s) of the next 50 years?
Robots are the one area where there is a lot of technological development going on. Not least with custom neural-net and AI chips and boards that are coming out : eg. from Google's Edge / Coral TPUs to Nvidia's Jetson.
But the consumer product side of things is still very embryonic. Consumer drones have done OK-ish. But other consumer robots are still basically toys or gimmicks that don't do enough. And the market really hasn't done well at all : Consumer Robots Had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Year
We haven't quite figured it out yet. But we will. And then robots are going to be big.
