What are some future gadgets?
In 2050, solar panels will be the main source of energy. The mobile phones will no longer exist, instead we will have a watch with phone projection, which we can operate through commands. It will make us hands-free.Charging will be something of the past, because wireless charging and solar charging will be “in”. No more chords!
VR headsets will be used everywhere. E.g. Before booking a hotel room you can use it to see around the hotel, or before buying something you can have a 3D look at it. Artificial Intelligence is going to be super-duper smart. Google is working on a project which is so smart that it doesn’t need to be programmed. It can programme itself. It can do chores without our command.
Buildings will be super smart. They will be connected to all our gadgets. E.g. T.V, coffee machine etc. Buildings will be connected to each other too!
Security will be super safe. There will be robots which can camouflage and record and guard the house all day. There will be mini CCTV camera, which can detect heat, follow it and send message to the robots. The robots will receive the intruder alert and activate the house lockdown.
We, at ASPAM IIS, the reputed Sharjah Indian School, encourage our kids to stay updated about the upcoming technologies and learn more about them.

I think they will make a computer program to replace your favorite characters with those in a movie.
You could watch the "Terminator" with Bob Denver (Gilligan) as the terminator instead of Arnold.
You could dress the characters any way you want. You could have John Wick dressed as a cowboy or astronaut. You could replace the female lead in any movie with your favorite actress and have her wear a bikini.
This program will very likely be invented (if it hasn't already) because there would be big demand ($) for it.

With an ever increasing population riding on ever diminishing resources, the future is going to be one of raw survival, and "gadgets" will be a luxury of the past.
You are making the common mistake of looking at the steep rise of technology over the last part of last century and it's continued momentum into this century, largely propelled by hype and the profits of monstrously large companies, and then assuming this rise is an ever increasing, non stop, one way ticket, to a world of propellor-heads and unavoidable, intrusive, non-stop crappification of life through the glorification of technology. Sorry to disappoint, but every trend gets broken, and the upswing of tech is about to enter it's downswing phase.
Solar panels will not allow an increasing population to be sustained. They cannot even sustain the current population. The world has run on solar power for millions of years, thanks to plants being the premier harvesters of solar energy, and they never sustained a monoculture of primates numbering in the billions, so there is no reason to believe solar energy can do so today. However they can sustain a civilization of perhaps as much as half a billion, as solar energy did in the past before the population exploded based on the discovery and exploitation of fossil fuels.
Concentrating on gagetry to attempt to predict the future is a very poor substitute for a prediction based on a macroscopic view of the world, it's history, the poor performance of past civilizations, and the limits to science, technology, and financing. The "Club of Rome" takes a much wider view than gagetry, and have arrived at a very different view of the future to yours. I recommend you check out their predictions.

Maybe a future tech you could use would be a machine that identifies what a *question* is.

What does this have to do with astronomy and space?

I was 9 or 10 when we went to the Seattle World's Fair in 1962. At&T was touting their fabulous, futuristic video phone!! 50-60 years later it is slowly gaining in popularity. Certainly not in the ways they envisioned, but that's OK.

I can see us communicating with Extra Terrestials through Quantum Entanglement which is a real thing
We can have an Internet Highway throughout the Universe

Predicting the future is hard. One only needs to look at past predictions to know that. It's not just a matter of extrapolating the capabilities of future technology, it requires understanding the needs, wants and desires of humans. We can do that well enough in terms of our experience today. We have many examples of understanding future capabilities (like Moore's law predicting the future of computing capacity) , but we are pretty poor at imagining the intersection of future desires and future technology. As an example, if we go back 150 years the telegraph was the miracle of the ages. Enabling near instant communication across the globe. 50 years later it's asynchronous, text based model it is relegated to a secondary service with the proliferation of the telephone and it's real time, live voice communication. 50 years ago we imagined a future with video phone wired in every house, rather than a wireless smart phone in every pocket. And no one imagined that the number 1 communication by far mode of the smart phone would be the text message, not voice or video call. So imagine that Alexander Graham Bell dropped into the 21st century. He would be astonished that every person carries a personal, wireless telegraph station, but he would understand the use and need. Then it would blow his mind to find out you could talk face-to-face with them but few people bother.

I just want my flying car. I was supposed to have a flying car by the year 2000.
