Technology is the foundation for the changes in the world, as it can open up the better future. Here are top 10 technologies that can change the world in the future.
Technology is the foundation for the changes in the world
- Space travel
You can fly to many different places in the world easily but still cannot see the earth from space. However, this will be resolved due to plans set by companies like Virgin Galatic, SpaceX and even Amazon’s Blue Origin. They want to someday take us into spaceships that orbit the Earth. For example, passengers on Amazon’s new Shepard will be brought up to 100 kilometers above sea level before parachuting to the earth.
- Electric / self-propelled vehicles
Electric cars are nothing new when it has appeared on the road for a long time. In the future, however, it will be better with longer battery life, a growing charging base infrastructure and more self-propelled technology.
Tesla has autopilot mode that can take on some of the driver’s duties, but one day car makers will help people just get in the car and let it run itself.
- Solar panels
Having been used for a while, solar panels are technologies, potential future of which is huge.
No longer stopping at solar panels on roofs, some manufacturers are integrating them into car roofs to bring technology to the car with longer battery life. That also reduces the environmental pollution.
The Ello Musk’s Hyperloop is a high-speed underground transport system which is being built and tested in the United States. The first scheduled route will be from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Another route is expected to go from New York to Washington DC in 29 minutes instead of the 2 hours and 56 minutes needed at this time.
- Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality (AR) has great potential. It has been developed over a period of time as various applications that can overlay information around you.
This technology is different from virtual reality (VR) because it fills information rather than simply putting you into a virtual reality environment. This is achieved thanks to the support of ARKit in iOS 11. With AR, you can place virtual furniture in the room to see how it is, play virtual games on the coffee table and receive information about the buildings around when you go out.
- Self-propelled truck
Transports Research Laboratory (TRL) is planning on unmanned vans traveling on roads in the UK in the near future. This idea is a combination of three trucks in the convoy, with a vehicle which controls the speed and two rear cars. The truck still needs a driver to lead.
- 5G network
After 4G, the 5G network continues to be the future technology to deliver faster download speeds. It is believed that 5G delivers fast connection speeds without the congestion. Therefore, 5G opens up a lot of possibilities for Internet of things devices, from home appliances to cars and other unexplored devices.
Qualcomm is one of the big companies that put 5G into the global market with the X50 chip. This chip is capable of delivering download speeds of up to 5 Gbps. 5G network is expected to be included in some leading phones in 2018 or 2019.
- Robot framework
The robot framework has been used by the military to give soldiers more strength and ability and make their work easier.
It can also help the disabled, especially those who cannot walk. Prosthetics have appeared in the real world, but for a better body, the robotic frame is a good choice.
- 3D printing technology
3D printing technology is gradually advancing into everyday life, including aircraft parts and vehicles. The materials used to create 3D prints are growing.
- Artificial intelligence
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being used a lot in life. It is taken into the systems of machines, robots and even smartphones.
Voice assistants such as Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant in smartphones are products developed from the AI platform.
10 technologies listed above are believed to be going to change the world. Let hope a better life in the future.
