Every year sees the development of brand-new technologies and it seems that nothing is out of reach when it comes to amazing gadgets and devices.
Of course, we don’t need every single piece of new technology that is invented but it’s always nice to have up-to-date gadgets to make your life easier. From augmented reality glasses to smart home devices, technology can streamline your daily activities, and save you time and energy.
There is no shortage of new technology to get excited about so let’s talk about some of the latest gears and gadgets that you need to know about.
Vacuuming is one of those house chores that can take a lot of time and energy to complete, especially if you have a larger property. Spending an hour hoovering up the dust on your carpets is the last thing you want to do when you get home.
Robotic vacuums are a relatively new technology that takes care of the vacuuming for you so that you can relax in the evenings after work. They can be programmed to begin hoovering the floor at a certain time so you can arrive home to dust-free carpets at the end of the day.
Robotic vacuums use artificial intelligence to manoeuvre around your home while avoiding your furniture and belongings. You can pair it up to your smartphone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to control it from anywhere.
Augmented Reality (AR)
Augmented reality (AR) is one of the most rapidly growing areas of technology. It is infiltrating almost every industry and is becoming more accessible to the everyday person.
AR replicates reality and it reflects the things that we see in our everyday lives, such as people, trees and flowers, cars, and other objects. This has been particularly interesting for the gaming community as AR can transport players directly into a game to enhance their experience.
However, AR has a variety of applications. It can be used for the following:
To improve navigation systems by superimposing a travel route over a driver’s live view of the road.
During live sports games for broadcasters can illustrate and analyze the progress of the game.
In clothing and furniture stores for customers to try on clothes or try out household items before buying them.
To enhance the flying experience and safety for pilots by projecting a live view of their speed and altitude.
Smartwatches have been around for almost two decades now but they are getting more advanced by the year. They are a great piece of technology to help you stay fit and healthy, and they monitor metrics like your daily step count, physical exercise, calories burnt, heart rate, and sleep quality.
Smartwatches can sync up to an app and transfer all of the data from your watch to your 5G phone automatically. These fitness apps can create graphs and tables to display your vital signs and physical activity levels so you can easily track your progress.
