Looking back in the past we could have never imagined technology will improve this much. Every year something new on the horizon appears, and people have become technologically anxious. We can’t wait to get our hands on new gadgets and try them out. Personally, we are amazed at how far we have reached. But, can we go further?
Smart home technology
It has become unbelievable that someday we could control all our equipment from one device that could fit our back pocket. But that day has come. In 2017 we can expect a huge improvement on this field. There is one question that has been troubling our readers, why don’t we all live in the smart home if this technology is so improved. The reason is that we now have a large number of applications, but unfortunately, none of them combines all the devices together. But, with the involvement of major IT giants like Google, Amazon, and Apple, in 2017 we can expect for things to change.
Virtual reality and augmented reality
We had a first glimpse of the game Pokémon Go and what augmented reality can do. People became obsessed with this game and more than 100 million of downloads followed. The new devices and tech still on an early phase of development managed to bring us a great experience. But, in 2017 we can expect for these things to take off.
Google has already implemented this feature, and we now have predictions on every step. It won’t take long for other applications and software to recognize this type of service. In the future, we will be able to rely more on machine learning. And they will be able to present us the best recommendation based on the previous history.
People will invest in software
Big companies will start spending money on high-end software because they will recognize the value and availability of as – a – service via cloud providers. On the other hand, hardware selling will decrease, mostly because the market is flooded with cheap devices arriving from small companies. The will rather choose different servers as storage space than investing in a new device.
Virtual world will become the dominant one
Many people experienced virtual reality last year, but 2017 is about to bring the big breakthrough. A few years back virtual reality started its course of development. But, so far it has been limited to big corporations which were producing expensive gear and software which average people couldn’t afford. Fortunately, many companies started producing new affordable devices which can support this technology. In 2017 we can expect to have more virtual gadget’s users, who will be ready to embrace this technology fully.
It is difficult to sum everything up and what will this year bring us. With innovations and new gadgets that appear every month it is hard to define what gadgets will mark 2017. But, based on the things we saw at CES, this year sound promising. I mean look the quadcopter drone with camera‘s that are now on the market!
