Following this as per industry experts voice recognition eyeball tracking and hand gestures will evolve. Though the trackpad and keypad will not disappear in the coming years a future with no keyboards cannot be ruled out. Such laptops will essentially contain high- definition cameras to make any surface a virtual keypad and one camera will track the hand movements. However this is an idea for the future.”
