New technology predictions for the future

New technology predictions for the future

In a previous blog I ended it with the exciting new venture with self driving cars. Well, in this blog, i have some more exciting news about that subject. I also have some more new up and coming technologies that are sure to blow your mind (in a good way).

 

  • The new Audi Q7 SUV making the headlines
    Self driving cars have definitely grabbed many headlines but, new technology is also bringing exciting new gadgets in your normal cars too! The all new Audi Q7 SUV has been said to be able to brake on behalf of the driver of the car and if you veer off the correct lane it will nudge you back again.
     
  • Going to a foreign country?
    Don’t worry about a thing. With new technology coming available, we will soon be able to translate anything! Technology may be the future of breaking down the language barrier, all over the world.

    The Google app will be able to translate conversations and even translate street signs for you. You will be able to go to a foreign country knowing that you can understand anything they may throw at you. This is also a huge breakthrough for allergy sufferers too as menus shouldn’t be too hard to go through!
  • Who needs sunscreen?
    Not us! Well, maybe for a few years yet but, not forever! Scientists are making a huge breakthrough with sunscreen and could potentially cut down the risk of skin cancer and sunburn too.

    For the around five years now, scientists have been doing some exciting research and experiments. Using both fish and coral (which both include a compound that protects them both from the sun), scientists are making a pill that will protect us from the sun like the fish and coral.

 

 

With these exciting new technologies coming in the future, I think the world is starting to become a better, safer place!

The best electric fireplaces for your new 2017 home

The best electric fireplaces for your new 2017 home

I thought i would write this blog on whether or not an electric fireplace is better than your standard old fashioned style fireplace. The reason I am writing this blog is because I recently purchased an electric fireplace from an online fireplace store. I was unsure about buying one as I had heard good reviews but a few bad reviews too so i was eager to review it for myself.

I can honestly say, I absolutely love it. It has been a great feature to our living room and has really modernised the place. As i was unsure at first, i thought i would write a blog about the different pros of having an electric fireplace, so you can then decide for yourself.

 

What are the pros of having an electric fireplace

 

 

  • Decor – As an electric fireplace can come in all shapes and sizes, the fireplace can be a beautiful new feature to your home. With different colours and a choice of coal or wood fires, you can have it as a more modern feature or a more homely, classic one.
  • Convenience – Electric fireplaces are known to have a much bigger life span than your average fireplace, this makes them more value for money.
  • Easy – Taking the fireplace out of its packaging, fixing it to your desired location and then plugging it in, is really all there is to it… it’s that simple.
  • Heat – Instead of some of the heat being lost through the chimney, an electric fireplace does not require any vent or chimney so it gives you heat directly into the room it is fixed into.
  • Safe – As an electric fireplace does not give off any harmful gases like carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide, they make it a lot safer to use in your home and they also leave a much smaller carbon footprint.

 

 

What changes can we expect by 2020?

What changes can we expect by 2020?

So, i have done some research and have found some pretty exciting new technology that are predicted to make an appearance in 2020. I have listed the most exciting ones below for you to have a read through, I hope you find them interesting!

Using gestures to control your computer
Earlier this year, Apple decided to set up a motion sensor computer and make the new found technology patent. They had this idea and were swift to get it patented so no one else could steal their idea.

The idea was to control your computer through hand movements. Although motion sensor technology has been around since 2012, this is way more advanced and can bring more potential to the table.

 

Fancy a romantic getaway to the stars?
Well you may just get that, literally. Orbital Technologies have said they reckon they will be sending tourists up into space to a Commercial Space Station. A rocket will take guests up to the space station where they will spend time in a cabin.

Enjoying zero gravity, guests will be able to experience what it is like whilst enjoying the magnificent views of space through the ship’s portholes. The Russia company have hinted that this could even happen as early as next year!

 

Car… take me to the shops please!

So, the talks of a self driving car have been going on for a long time but now, they are finally testing them on the road! If things carry on, they could soon be part of our everyday reality. What is even more exciting is that Google have now announced that they have decided to team up with Ford to build these self driving cars. This would then be huge!!
