The year of 2017 had seen tremendous technological innovation. Looking ahead to 2018, the forecast looks brighter then ever! We can expect to see more advances in augmented and virtual reality, robots, drone delivery, and more voice activated gismos. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? However, not all new technology has been greeted with open arms!
There has been an ever growing anticipation for the arrival of robots in society. One of the first places to start using robots was no other than San Fransisco, California. The purpose of most of these are patrolling the street or corporate building. Many individuals who came into contact with these machines believed that it was an invasion of personal space. Just like with anything new, there will always be a learning curve and adjustments made. Drones are facing similar accusations. Drones have been gaining increasing popularity over the past few years. But similar to robots, people believe they are an invasion of personal space and privacy. Something coming in 2018, could help everyone feel more comfortable with drones. Electronic licenses plates are starting to be implemented to each individual drone. This way, everyone is accountable for the their drones activity.
Augmented and virtual reality, along with all the voice activated products on the market have not met the same resistance. Augmented and Virtual reality have set the world on fire. Of course, products like Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Home have become necessities in every home but, virtual and augmented reality is seen by many as the future! Personally, I couldn’t imagine not having my Amazon Echo waking me up every morning. Now that 2018 is here, billions have been poured into VR and technology. This trend is only going to continue to grow. Only one thing is for sure, the technological innovation coming in 2018 is going to be world changing! Thank you all for reading, I hope you are crushing your week!
