So many technologies have come and gone.
Some of them are good, others are extremely bad and so many others are in-between good and bad.
When God created man, he didn’t create man with anything other than the things in the garden of Eden, but he gave us the brain that we’ve used to idealize the technologies of today and make them come alive.
Over the centuries, man has been thinking, coming up with ideas and bringing it out into reality to help make our life on earth better.
Most of the technologies we’ve come up with had the intentions of taking away human life and destroying properties (referring to the technologies that are used to influence war). While others have the intention of making life on earth a little bit better than before. The latter; they are the ones I am referring to on this post.
Here is a list of the technologies developed throughout our modern age that is destined to change our entire world.
While so many of our new technologies will not stay long before they will be replaced by newer technologies, this 10 are meant to stick around for a very long time.
Although, Some of them are not yet out, while some are still in the production stage. I believe it is not a bad idea to let you know that the world will soon be a better place with the help of these new technologies.
New Technologies That Will Entirely Change The World
You might think a self-driving car is a thing that only exists in our sci-fi Hollywood movies, but they are making their way into reality, and even into our tractor and trailers.
Imagine a truck driving all by itself without a human being behind the wheels.
This will actually leave so many truck drivers employments
While Google and other companies have been focusing and sweating on self-driving cars, one company, Daimler is putting all into making a driverless truck reality.
Daimler is a German multinational automotive co-operation. headquartered in Stuggart. Daimler owns shares in a number of automobile brands including our almighty Mercedes-Benz.
Daimler’s Freightliner inspiration truck has already been officially licensed to operate on the public highways of Nevada, Italy. Although, this is still a test truck but the first semi-autonomous trucks will soon see their time on our roads by 2025.
Paying with Your Face
Very soon, you will have no need to take your wallet or purse around to pay your bills.
We’ve enjoyed the debit card system a lot and it will also be a thing of the past very soon.
The future of cashless pay may be good, but how about using your face instead of the debit card or your phone.
In China, Facial-detecting systems now authorize payments, provide access to facilities, and track down criminals. Other countries will soon follow.
This offers hope to people with spinal injuries. Scientists are making remarkable progress here. It involves using brain implants to restore the freedom of movement that spinal cord injuries took away.
This technology works by installing a recording device beneath the patient’s skull, in a way that it will be touching the motor cortex and a pad of flexible electrodes will be sutured around the patient’s spinal cord, just below the injured area. Then a wireless connection joins the two electronic devices.
The resulting mechanism is that when the patients intend to move the part of his body controlled by the injured spot, the system reads his intentions and transmits a burst of electrical stimulation to the spine.
The 360-Degree Selfie
This totally revolutionized the world of photography. Cameras that make spherical images and changing the way people share stories.
You can entirely see inside the room a picture was taken just by scrolling the sphere.
Hot Solar Cells
We all know about solar powers right?
By converting heat to focused beams of light, a new solar device could create cheap and continuous power.
The traditional solar cell is mostly made from silicon. But it has also been known that there are some possible ways to increase that overall efficiency, such as by using multiple layers of cells, a method that is being widely studied, or by converting the sunlight first to heat before generating electrical power or using devices known as solar thermophotovoltaics, or STPVs.
Gene Therapy 2.0
Science and technology make the impossible so possible. Over the years, scientists have used technology to solve fundamental problems that were holding back cures for rare hereditary disorders. Gene therapy is one of them and it involves a technique whereby doctors to treat a disorder by inserting a gene into a patient’s cells instead of using drugs or surgery.
We’ll are currently trying to see if the same approach can take on cancer, heart disease, and other common illnesses.
The Cell Atlas
It is still believed that there are some internal parts of the human body that we are still yet to find out they exist.
The cell Atlas is a program trying to build a community of biologists, clinicians, software engineers, technologists, physicists, computational scientists, and mathematicians.
This community of scientists with diverse expertise shares the common goal of creating a comprehensive reference map of all human cells as a basis for understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring, and treating disease. hopes to find out what we’re really made of.
Botnets of Things
As the world breeze heavily towards the internet. Online security becomes a problem.
One of the ways hackers use in getting hold of your system is via botnets which are made up of computers that have been remotely accessed without the owners’ knowledge and set up to forward transmissions to other computers on the Internet.
Internet of Things (IoT) is the name given to describe the relatively new technology that connects everyday objects and devices to the web to transmit, equipped with IP addresses and provide additional data or functionality.
A botnet of things refers to a situation where other devices that make up the internet of things are also enslaved alongside computers and phones and used to carry out the perpetrator’s illicit deeds. The botnet of things can involve smartTVs, other than phones and computers.
The relentless push to add connectivity to home gadgets is creating dangerous side effects that figure to get even worse.
How can I mention new technologies that are going to change the world and fail to mention reinforcement learning?
Reinforcement Learning is a type of Machine Learning whereby computers are figuring out how to do things that no programmer could teach them, all by themselves.
This could be one of the best things that may have happened in the technological field so far.
All thanks to the scientists all over the world trying to better this technology.
Also known as Addictive manufacturing. This technology has simplified the work in so many companies.
It is used to create a physical object from a digital design.
Objects can be of almost any shape or geometry and are produced using digital model data from a 3D model or another electronic data source such as an Additive Manufacturing File (AMF) file
This technology is being implemented in the manufacturing industries and also in medical care to create cloned body parts and organs that should be replaced.
- This technology came like a joke and snatched the tech world by force. Using virtual reality headsets to add more fun to our smartphone imaging by simulating a user’s physical presence in a virtual or imaginary environment.
With Virtual reality, you can be able to “look around” the artificial world, initiate moves in it and interact with virtual features or items.
It is now a big market for so many industries especially the gaming industry.
VR technologies are being used in clinical therapy, and the results are so significant. VR devices are being used in the hospital for anxiety treatments and pain managements.
Finally, we should know that technology is fast evolving. You have to evolve with it as not to be left behind. Read and follow tech blog so as to get updated and stay updated always.
