Technology is constantly changing, with new innovations emerging all the time. While some of these aren’t as useful as they seem (like the recent hoverboard craze), others are truly life-changing, and it’s important to be aware of them before they hit the mainstream market. The following list includes five technologies that have recently been introduced but will likely stick around for a long time to come, because they solve real-world problems or offer real value to consumers and businesses alike. Read on to find out what these latest technologies are and why you should learn about them now!
1. Smart virtual assistants
1. Apple HomePod- This smart speaker is a cheaper alternative to the Amazon Echo and Google Home. It is a sleek looking device with excellent sound quality, but it doesn’t have as many features as its competitors.
2. HP Elite x3- This Windows 10 Mobile phone can be used as a desktop computer when connected to an external monitor, keyboard and mouse which makes it perfect for people who work from home or on the go. The price of this phone does not include the cost of these extras so it may not be worth the investment for some people.
2. Augmented Reality
Augmented reality (AR) is a type of technology that brings digital objects into the real world. This means that you can interact with a 3D object on your phone or computer screen and see it displayed in front of you as if it were really there.
There are many different ways in which AR can be used, from education and entertainment to engineering and medicine. One of the most exciting applications for augmented reality is within gaming, where gamers have the opportunity to play video games in their homes and see them come alive on their screens.
Augmented Reality has only been available for a few years, but it’s already showing signs of being one of the most transformative technologies since smartphones first came out.
3. Virtual reality
Virtual reality is the newest technology in which you can experience things without having to leave your house. With a headset, such as the Oculus Rift, people can now enter an entirely different world by immersing themselves in virtual worlds.
Virtual reality is not just for gaming; it is being used for education and therapy. For example, therapists are using VR experiences with patients who have experienced PTSD or other traumas. The patient will put on a VR headset and the therapist will guide them through their traumatic event while they are sitting safely in their chair.
4. Voice-activated devices
You can now talk to your computer, phone, and other devices without touching them! The newest version of Siri allows you to speak commands rather than type them in. Microsoft is working on a similar technology called Cortana. Google has a voice-activated device called Google Home that plugs into the wall and responds to voice commands. This is useful for those with disabilities or who don’t want to touch their screens while cooking. Amazon Echo looks like an air freshener and has been dubbed the hands-free room mate because it can answer questions, play music, turn off your lights, read the news and order groceries for you.
Today, we’re going to be talking about some of the most cutting-edge technologies that we can’t wait to see more of in the future. If you’re a fan of science fiction movies like I am, you’ll enjoy this post. Let’s start with the robots. Robots are coming on strong lately and there are many different kinds available for purchase now. Some are designed for specific tasks like picking up objects or performing surgery while others are designed for entertainment like entertaining children at birthday parties or providing a friendly face at an event where visitors might feel nervous or uncomfortable. But one thing is for sure: robots will eventually become a part of our daily lives, so it’s best not to be too freaked out by their sudden popularity.
