Get ready to be astonished with these future technologies – Amazing new inventions.
More than ever, the period of 2011-2015 will determine the success of thr world’s economic models. As we strive to reinvent activities and find innovative strategies, technology is constantly changing and developing. In this digital metamorphosis, one thing is certain – speed is essential. We must be able to anticipate the future, be receptive to opportunities, and avoid threats.
Featured below are “The 5 future technologies for 2015”:
1 The 3D Printer
In the digital age, the world of printing has come a long way. From an iphone printer that can be used in a mobile way to produce receipts, labels, and medical documents, to the wonders of 3D printing. 3D printing is a new rapid prototyping technique. Taken from the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), it produces a real object from a CAD file by cutting it into slices and dropping or solidifying the material layer by layer and in the end, you get the whole piece.
It is quite close to a conventional 2D printer: nozzles used, depositing glue, are also identical to office printers. It is the stack of the layers which creates the volume.
For the decoration of your house, it will be possible to “print” furniture, fashion accessories, boxes, jewelry, and handbags. The 3D printer will facilitate the establishment of mini factories and work on different materials such as plastic and metal.
2 The Internet of things
Vinton Cerf, co-inventor of the TCP / IP protocol is considered as one of the founding fathers of the Internet, and said the following: «They say a year in the Internet business is like a dog year… Equivalent to seven years in a regular person’s life. In other words, it’s evolving fast and faster.”
In the 2000s, the Internet has spread around the globe, reaching 1.59 billion of connected people in March 2009. Following the advent of the information age, the New Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) has created a new kind of society that continues to surprise us with its ability of evolving continually. Between 2010 and 2020, the web must be prepared to receive a new type of users that will land in numbers: inanimate objects.
The Internet of Things, was predicted within the end of the last century, and it is about to become a reality, our whole everyday life is about to be changed by the arrival of these new technologies. Communicate and generate content via the internet will soon no longer be reserved only for individuals with computers, more and more elements of our environment will be able to do the same.
3 Intelligent Walls
Smart walls can take many forms. Their surface is transformed into a gigantic multifunction display screen .Just like in the Total Recall movie, these type of wall can display TV, landscapes, wallpaper, computer data, video conferencing, etc. It can even be loaded with sensors to direct robotic cleaners in companies, mail robots or pharmaceutical drugs transporting robots.
For example, the Schematic TouchWall Company is a giant multitasking, multi-user and intelligent Touch wall. It recognizes users through RFID badges and offers them a personalized workspace in efforts of increasing work productivity, for more advantages of touch screens for work processes take a look into the benefits of the interactive screen when considering the efficiency and ease of use of such tech equipment. These types of screens are also capable of displaying 3D maps and to provide access to a social network where users can leave their messages. The major interest is its multi-user capability which allows people to work alongside each other and share information. In another area, the intelligent walls will be able to detect changes in heat and adjust the heating or cooling system as needed.
4 3D And Augmented Reality
The 3D, after invading theaters and homes, it walks now into the world of PC and mobile phones. Several manufacturers have announced the arrival of desktop and laptop computers that are able to display images and videos relief, with special glasses. But soon, the screens won’t need these glasses. Even mobile phones will be equipped with a 3D screen.
The National Institute of Advanced Science and Technology of Japan announced on last August 25, the “i3Space”, a system that gives the sensation of touching 3D images. By attaching a device to a finger, it gives its wearer the feeling of touching a 3D object on a screen and manipulating it.
The concept of augmented reality is about a system that makes it possible to overlay a virtual 3D model or 2D to our perception of reality and, of course, this is according to real time. This system can also be applied to visual perception as proprioceptive perceptions such as tactile or auditory perceptions. Technology can insert synthetic images in real world through the camera of a mobile phone or special video glasses.
5 The Intelligent Fabric
The primary objectives of these intelligent fabrics are related to everyday life, thermoregulatory and insulating. Many innovative materials like Gore Tex, Windstopper or Coldwinner are invading markets. Technologies that are primarily for outdoor sports clothing such as sailing, mountaineering, winter sports. If these materials protect and isolate the body, other materials under development will have the effect of restoring the stored body heat.
This technology development concerns the clothing but it can concern the bed linen such as duvets and blankets. Other tissues have a shape memory so that they can get back to their original shape. Widespread in the metal industry, this technology invests the textile sector with innovative creations. Non-deform able hats and shoes whose soles memorize the imprint of the feet .
