Technology That Trended In 2015
2015 was an exciting year for technology. The world witnessed many leaps and bounds in the field of technological advancement. We are living in an age where science develops every day and allows mankind to use new and high-end technology to make life convenient and simpler.
Magic Leap is a start-up that is going to be the next best thing in 3D imagery. In-fact, Google has spent close to half a billion dollars as an initial investment in this start-up company. They promise a device that will make virtual objects appear in real life. The technology could open new opportunities for the film, gaming, travel, and telecommunications industries. Magic Leap wants to bring the fun and games to the world you’re already in. And in order for its fantasy monsters to appear on your desk alongside real pencils, Magic Leap had to come up with an alternative to stereoscopic 3-D—something that doesn’t disrupt the way you normally see things. Essentially, it has developed an itty-bitty projector that shines light into your eyes—light that blends in extremely well with the light you’re receiving from the real world.
Car to Car Communication
As ridiculous as it sounds, this is ground breaking technology which trended in 2015. It started off as a safety measure to reduce the number of accidents caused due to vehicular situations. The technology will ensure that cars are developed in a way where they can talk to each other to avoid crashes. More than a million people are killed on roads worldwide every year and this technological experiment will try and reduce that number. Creating a car-to-car network is still a complex challenge. The computers aboard each car process the various readings being broadcast by other vehicles 10 times every second, each time calculating the chance of an impending collision. More than five million crashes occur on U.S. roads alone every year, and more than 30,000 of those are fatal. The prospect of preventing many such accidents will provide significant impetus for networking technology. We can all look forward to safer roads and fewer accidents as well. This will definitely go a long way and will become a story to look out for in 2016.
As mobile computing and cloud computing meet, coordinated applications that can be delivered to any device will continue to grow. Apps that can use intelligence and storage effectively will see lesser bandwidth costs. Expect to be able to use applications simultaneously on multiple devices. Cloud computing is an essential phenomena for smartphone users. It enables them to store data and recover it any time. This technology has come a long way in 2015 and made the news on several occasions. Cloud is the new style of scalable, self-service computing, and both internal and external applications will be built on this new style. Users will be able to multi-task and effectively ensure co-ordination and management of their smartphone usage.
