If you’re looking for the biggest force that is changing the world right now, it’s not people. It’s tech. Tech is a huge driving force of the modern world. It affects everything. How we socialize, communicate, travel and even work. This year new technology mixed with some incredible ideas is leading to some very interesting developments.
Tech Of The Future
Did you ever think that holograms and virtual reality would be real? We’re not talking about the holograms that you see on stage of Elvis. Or, the virtual reality that requires massive computers and doesn’t look at all realistic. We mean the real, modern tech that you will soon be able to buy for your homes or see in the world around you. VR is about to hit the market in a big way and is expected to have a huge presence at this year’s E3 conference. But is it about to be overshadowed by another idea? Last year, developers eagerly announce that they were close to patenting a tech similar to the holodeck from Star Trek. For people who don’t remember, the holo tech allowed characters to enter and explore a virtual world that responded to them. It might be surprising that we’re this close to this type of advancement. But if you’ve been to a theme park recently, it shouldn’t. Many have been using holograms on their rides for years. This would just be the same idea on a greater platform.
Tech In Factories
As the digital age rapidly progresses, it seems like factories have been left in the dust. But actually, factories will be more reliant on tech compared to most other industries. They need it to find ways to make production cheaper and stay profitable in a swelling market. But making money isn’t the only issue. If you look at work accident statistics, you’ll find an alarming number occur on factory floors. Now, new tech mixed with an old idea is making factories safer for workers. A membrane keyboard provides absolute reliability in the hostile work environments found in most factories. Membrane keypads were once used on the first computers. Now, they are the perfect piece of equipment to use complex factory equipment safely.
You can bet that robots and androids are going to play a huge part in the future of technology. In fact, robotics already play a crucial part in our world. In factories, robots are making our cars, and they are doing it with very little human input. There’s been a huge shift towards automation in factories and every aspect of business. In the future, factories may be run by one person and a whole host of different machines and robots.
Last but not least, it’s worth thinking about what 3D printing has done for the world. Now, you can make and produce any product you like in the comfort of your home. If you have a 3D printer that is. It has led to some fascinating designs and developments from people with very little experience. It’s also opened up the manufacturing market in a way that has never been seen before.
