Where is Technology going in 2018 and what kind of Electronics could we start to see in the coming future? Here is a look at some interesting new developments in Technology and Electronics of the coming year.
How far will Technology go in”AI”in 2018
Artificial intelligence is going to be huge in 2018! We already have Alexia, Siri, Ozlo and too many more to list, there is even “Olive” which is an on board healthcare atomized consultant. By 2019 there will be over 64 million voice activated “AI” devices ready to be at your service. One thing I know for sure “AI” is going to change the way you think about voice dubbing and recognition. “AI” is getting so good at sounding like the real thing we may not know what is real anymore. What looks like a world leader or Celebrity saying something derogatory or inaccurate online may be the works of “AI”.
I must say in 2018 Technology and Electronics will make lives easier thanks to “AI”. One of the benefits will be, that “AI” will enable us to do more speaking than texting, this is a more normal way to communicate. As humans, we would rather talk, take Echo and Alexa they are integrated in our personal devices, cars, home automation services as well as factories and large companies. Another integrated piece of technology with “AI” is Elon Musk’s self driving car. Somebody say Jetson’s?!
Will “AR”become significant?
I think there will definitely be a significance in the Technology of “AR” in 2018, everything to electronics like our phones for playing Pokemon go! or shopping to see your correct size. “AR” was also used in the Air Force, so it has many applications. Believe me we are going to see a lot more from Augmented Reality in the coming future. There are even phones specifically made for AR like the “Asus ZenFone”, a smart phone built just for AR.
There are 3D devices available now for an Augmented reality in which you can play a game and actually feel like you are there. In my child hood this is just something I wish I had. I never thought I would see the things that are happening in my lifetime. More and more people are purchasing item’s and electronics over there phones these days. Augmented reality ” AR ” will help you try on that shoe by looking through your phone and using the camera. There are Apps allowing the user to take a picture of themselves and then through Augmented reality they can see what they might look like with different hair, glasses, maybe a color of makeup. Artificial intelligence already allows you to see what your furniture might look like through your phone by the use of “AR”. You can have an informative and visual idea of you would like with the representation of “AR”, and then you can make your purchase. Here is a look at a pair of Google Glasses
What New Electronics will we see in 2018
What do we have to look forward too in 2018? I have a feeling it’s going to be a lot. There are so many cool thing’s to buy in the form of an electronic that it is really hard to begin. Well this year we will see more wearable electronics, like the fit bit. There will probably be more robotic devices sold, whether it be a device which is non-mobile or fully-mobile. iPhone is making some huge leaps and bounds with the “iPhone X” but it’s not just that, iPhone has invested in future “AR” by building there phones the “iPhone 8 and iPhone X” with super-fast Bionic A11 processors.
- Oculus Go VR
- HERO6 Black GO PRO
- i Phone X
- Galaxy S8
- Fit Bit Ionic
- Google Pixel Buds
- Home Pod
- Google Home Max
These are just a few of some of the coolest electronics and gadgets in 2018.
Technology and Wearables
In this year to come we will see new technology in the advancements of wearable’s, to health, sports, military or police, wearables are everywhere. There is also the RFID chip which is a wearable and has lots of controversy attached to it. Technology and wearables are going towards the direction of sports clothing in the foreseeable future like integrated sensors, but much more advanced and technical. Companies like “Nike” & “Under Armor” have produced integrated senor clothing all the way back to 2006. This is a cool one I found, Fitness SHIRT, it contains sensors to monitor cardiac activity, but looks like a normal shirt.
To put it simply, the technology sector of wearables are non-stop growing and advancing to new and exciting achievements. From clothing to implants, to fit bits and healthcare devices like ” Google Glass” which has the ability to give doctors the access to preload X-Rays and “CT” scans to Google Glass. Now you do not have to leave the operating room during an emergency, giving the Doctors the ability to have the patients full attention. Here is something new, it’s a wearable patch that a patient can wear home. It is called BioPatch, and it tells the hospital if there is any trouble, it will report on the patients progress at home. If the Patient is not doing well, the hospital will be notified and can be ready in advance when the patient gets there. Quite an achievement in the modern world.
We have Learned that “AI” is going to help us communicate better, drive in a whole new way, and answer all the questions we have simply by calling out to a “AI” personality like “Siri”. We will see “AR” helping us shop differently and in a more home friendly manner, playing games differently and experiencing VR ” Virtual Reality”. There are so many new gadgets out there in the electronic market and really cool thing to come this year. And the wearable technology is amazing with everything from “Fit-Bit” to help you stay in shape and count your calories. And then there is the “BioPatch” which could help keep you alive by wearing a patch embedded with technology which could inform the hospital if whether you are in need of medical attention while at home. Seems like we have a lot to look forward too! stay tuned and stay informed as to what is the latest in Technology and Electronics.
