Recent technological innovations brought us self-driving vehicles and virtual reality that once were a fantasy of creative people. Cars powered by electricity and hydrogen are already in the streets making one’s journey absolutely safe and comfortable. We also started to use bitcoins and other online currencies to make payments online. But the technology develops in leaps and bounds, and we can face even more impressive novelties in the coming decade.
The internet of things has already come to the market, but few households use a lot of smart devices at the moment. We are expecting more devices to get connected to the Internet and each other to perform our daily functions. The prospect of smart devices taking care of the household for us is an exciting idea. And a household is just the most routine place to apply IoT.
3D printers are another great invention that is about to change our lives. They are capable of producing any item, from a car to a liver ready for transplantation. 3D printers are already sold worldwide and allow people to create small household items on demand. Nevertheless, we expect printers to become more powerful and complex.
The era of virtual reality has just begun, and over the next decade, the technology will spread dramatically. Google glasses are already available, but we expect them to become our primary means of communication with the outer world. The eyewear connected to the Internet, cell phone and other devices will soon make our routine perfectly structured.
