An industry expert says the internet is about to hit a wall, and it’s up to technology companies to break through.
Tech companies are struggling to innovate and get their products into people’s hands.
As technology continues to evolve, the challenge of getting people to use technology is only going to get more challenging, said Matthew Hurd, a cofounder of the company FutureTense.
“We are on the verge of a massive technological collapse.
It’s just the time when we need to start looking at ways to accelerate innovation and make the technology more accessible to all.”
Hurd told Newsweek that tech companies are currently struggling to keep up with the pace of innovation.
Hurd said he believes the internet was built by and for the masses.
He said that it was created for everyone.
The future for tech companies isn’t so bright.
Even if technology companies can get people to adopt their products, the rest of us will have to wait until the end of the year to get our hands on them.
For now, the best advice Hurd could offer is to start investing in new ideas, said Hurd.
“Start thinking about the next 10 years.”

But even as it’s become more popular, there are still challenges for companies like Google and Facebook, which both have a lot of money.
And the Internet of Things (IoT) is already on the horizon.
Hurd, who is also the cofounder and CEO of FutureTek, told Newsweek he hopes the internet and IoT will help make tech more accessible.
But he cautioned against thinking of the IoT as a replacement for smartphones.
Instead, it should be viewed as a bridge that connects technology with the world around us, he said.
