What's new today that will be collectible in 50 years?

I'm thinking not nearly as much stuff as was made 50 - 100 years ago.

On the other hand, with a lot of fragile/disposable things of the past, surviving examples command high $$$ simply because most of them went into a landfill.

My buddies and I used to buy cheap dual-line stunt kites and blast them with shotguns until they wouldn't fly anymore. Maybe we made them more rare.

alot of non plastic things....

look at how technology affects our lives. You dont see many TVs in houses since people use their phone.... same with land lines. things like the rotary/phenolic phones are already collectable... then you have real manual typerwriters....pen/pencils....They are still used by less rich countries, but we may do away with them.

real currency may go by-by eventually.

Keys/padlocks will probably disappear...

belts, handbags/purses/wallets will become a thing of the past...and maybe a fashion statement....

50 years

Nothing made today, everything is disposable and mass produced.

High quality cutlery maybe . . .

. . . and other expensive non powered hand tools. Many people no longer 'tinker' on their appliances and home repair, having no inclination or knowledge to do so. They would rather hire out the work.

I also agree with the above - a lot of cheap disposable items manufactured. Often breaks with little use and is thrown out.
