If you walk into any of the remaining big box chains that are still alive that focus on electronics like Best Buy, you are fully expecting to see some of the newest tech innovations available to the public. You’ll find awesome computers, high-end smartphones, and the newest streaming entertainment hardware.
However, technology isn’t just making its push into all of the expected industries like digital entertainment and communication. It’s starting to leech into almost every aspect of American culture. If you don’t believe that, keep reading. You might be surprised to find juts how many different industries tech is invading.
You have probably started seeing some of the fancy new thermostats available for your home. They are just part of the Smart Home evolution. They are designed to allow you to control your home’s climate control from your phone. But, they are also designed to learn your patterns and begin to adjust settings automatically.
There’s much more to a smart home than climate control though. You can have technology assisted lighting, alarms, and more. And, as we move forward in time, more features are sure to become available.
Protecting our children is one of the most important things a society can do, and it’s also one of the strongest natural impulses humans have. It’s no surprise then that technology is beginning to influence how we approach baby safety in the home.
This actually isn’t a new trend. Audio baby monitors have been available for decades and are technically a technology aimed at helping keep your baby safe. But, they have become much more technologically advanced.
Instead of only relying on poor audio, baby monitors now include state of the art video feeds to either a proprietary device or to your smartphone. Some even incorporate movement monitoring.
This is definitely just the beginning of the tech innovations that will be entering this space.
It’s no surprise to see the car industry getting a huge interest from tech innovators all over. While tech and cars isn’t really a new thing, what is new is just how much major change is happening after decades of only incremental upgrades.
It’s hard to imaging that while you can still find a car less than 20 years old that has a standard cassette deck installed, you can also find a new car that runs entirely on electricity and uses cameras and GPS to drive itself.
Can you even imagine what companies like Tesla have in store for us over the next five to ten years?
Technology is mobbing faster and faster. While that may sound cliché, it doesn’t mean it isn’t true. It’s beginning to seep into all aspects our normal consumers lives. From the cars they drive to commute to work to how their homes function, it’s hard to escape the digital world. And with that, it’s hard to not get wrapped up in looking ahead to try and guess what is coming next.
It’s a brave new world out there. Are you ready?
