Technology has developed a lot over the years. In fact, in the last decade alone we’ve seen a significant change in the advancement of tech. At the rate that we’re improving, who knows what kind of technological wonders we could have access to by 2030, or even 2020. While we love to dream about this, we can’t ignore some of the things we have already that go above and beyond what we ever thought was capable in the 20th century. These things are already blowing our minds.
Smart home devices
These bits of tech are slowly spreading across the world. If you don’t have one in your house already, it may only be a matter of time before you do. Companies like Amazon have been triumphant with their Echo devices, and we expect the marketplace will soon be filled with competitors trying to cash in on its success.
These technological wonders turn your home into one big computer, allowing you to do anything from turning on lights to locking doors. Now, most of the essential things you need to do at home require no effort on your part. Smart home devices make everything more connected than they’ve ever been before, and we don’t see any going back now.
Robot helpers seem like the stuff of a dystopian film, but a lot of what we do nowadays is thanks to these pieces of technology. While most of them might not look like the humanized counterparts we’re used to from the movies, they’re taking on our likeness more and more every year. Scientists are making great strides in the development of artificial intelligence, and the robots’ capabilities are growing stronger by the day. They’re already a huge help for many industries, and might soon become a part of our everyday lives.
Actually, they already have. Smart home devices use artificial intelligence to interpret and respond to your voice commands. Now they just need to be able to move around.
It might not be anything new, but 3D printing has come a long way over the years. It’s gone from being a useful tool for designers to create new plastic parts, to something that can now revolutionize the way that things are manufactured.
These devices are capable of printing all types of material, including metal, and have widespread benefits. The automotive industry, for instance, would benefit from being able to print off new car parts whenever they’re required, rather than having to order them in. Not only is this technology extremely useful, but it’s also capable of producing parts that are stronger than anything that’s already out there.
Artificial body parts
We all hurt ourselves at some point in our lifetime. For those of us who require a transplant of sorts to heal correctly, the world of technology is here to help. Alternative methods are being used every day to help out injured patients who need a surgical operation to live. While the standard procedure would be to replace the problematic organ with a new one, that isn’t always possible.
That’s why scientists have developed things like an artificial pancreas to help keep the body working in excellent condition. All manner of technology has been designed to aid people’s suffering, and no part of the body seems to be off limits. Devices have even been made to deal with issues in the brain. We are slowly becoming more robotic by the day.
The world is changing, and pretty soon it’ll be hard to imagine life without all these developments. While that might be a daunting thought to consider, it’s also exciting how much this technology can improve our quality of life.
