Every has a that eureka moment? That instance where you weren’t aware of something and then suddenly you were? Well, prepare yourself because you are about to have a few more. As you might not be aware of the gadgets below, but once you are you will definitely need them in your life.
Are you still vacuuming by hand, the traditional way? If so, it’s really time to stop, because that is the past. The future is the robot vacuum, a clever device that roams your home under its own steam, sucking up dust and dirt as it goes.
These vacuums are fairly small, round, and set low to the ground. They can be programmed to your needs, and you can even let them loose when you are out, so you come back to a perfectly vacuum home every day. How good is that?
Digital recorders are something that are getting smaller and smaller these days. You can even get secret recorders that are hidden inside pens, or small enough to be worn on your wrist and look like a fitness tracker.
By why might you want such a device? Well, actually for quite a few reasons. One could be to record a colleague being verbally abusive or bullying. So it’s not just your work against their when you take it to your boss.
Another may be to use it to record your business meetings without drawing attention to the fact that you are doing so. This can really free you up to be at the moment and pay attention to the person that you are negotiating with. The good thing about this is because it’s recorded you can then have a copy to refer back to or to have typed up so you can keep written record of what occurred too.
A super new development in tech right now is iris reading security for our smartphones. While it sounds like something out of a sci-fi film its actually happening, and progress in security for these devices on which we hold so much of our life can only be a good thing.
Yes, there are passcodes and fingerprint readers, but of course as anyone that has seen a Mission Impossible knows this can be got around. But iris recognition technology is much more accurate and much harder to crack.
That means your personal data stays private unless you choose to share it, which is exactly as it should be.
You may think that VR or virtual reality as tech that is a little luxurious, and you may have a point right now, as most of the systems out there are running games. Pretty amazing games, but entertainment nonetheless.
However, stop for a minute and think about the future applications of this tech. You can hold meetings face to face from wherever you are. You can speak to family across the world and be in the same room. You can learn complex procedures like assembling machines, or even surgery in a totally safe environment.
It is this that is the true jewel of VR, and it could actually completely transform the way in which we live our lives. That is why it’s a good idea to get in at the ground level now, as a user and even as a programmer because this tech will end up being an essential part of the day to day life.
Home hubs are another piece of clever tech that you may not realize you need now, but you will soon some to rely on. It’s sort of like the transition from gas to electric, it seems revolutionary at the time, but gets is so normal that we would expect nothing less.
Home hubs are digital control boxes for all of the tech directly related to managing your living environment. This can include lights, temperature, water consumption, electric consumption, opening and closing of blinds and windows, as well as access to your music and the internet.
The thing about the home hub is that it can be voice activated meaning you have the power to control all of these items with just a word. This is revolutionizing the way that we live, and over the next 10 easy we can expect these to become commonplace.
Their true advantage comes from the fact that they not only make our lives easier but can help us be more economical and ecologically sound. As things don’t need to be left on when they aren’t being used, resulting in larger savings on power.
