We are slaves to cyber hive. We humans love our tech, perhaps even a little too much. The Matrix itself is starting to feel the strain of our unquenchable thirst. Since the days of the invention of the wheel, our species has been dependent on ever more complicated and sophisticated levels of technology. Throughout the years, especially those of the twentieth century, technology has exploded into our lives and changed our civilization in a far greater way than any era prior to it. A person from today would probably appear to be a sorcerer to our ancestors in the Middle Ages. Flash a smart phone before their eyes and they would doubtlessly think it was the tool of a witch or a device of Satan! Just imagine what a human even a century ago could be capable of!
Computers are everywhere, from our TVs and desktops and even now in our pockets and on our wrists. There is a principle known as Moore’s Law, which dictates that computer power will double every two years. So far, Moore’s Law has shown no sign of letting up in any way, and it appears that it'll continue into the foreseeable future. Yet supply remains often many steps behind demand for the public's consumption. Every one of us yearns for faster internet, greater battery power, enhanced memory and processing power for computers, phones and other devices... 4K will never stay as the leading standard of visual innovation and with this in mind, at the beginning of a new year, let’s examine the tech rumors and upcoming details and hints of what the ravenous tech hordes will have in store for them in 2016.
10 Virtual Reality
9 Self-Driving Automobiles
7 Artificial Intelligence
6 5D Data
4 Quantum Computing
3 Interactive Online Shopping
2 Foldable Screens
1 Completely Connected Homes
Once upon a time computers were chunky, sluggish machines. Not too long ago, a generation ago really, the internet was a thing to be more endured than enjoyed. The harping wails of dial up connections and the ‘speed’ offered by 56K modems are pains anyone 30 and over will easily recall with dread! However, technology has spared consumers the ignominy of such agonizing online lag (mostly) and internet awaits, a mere swipe away. It has integrated into our televisions, meaning Netflix (and chill...) can happen in any room in the house! As computer chips become ever cheaper, this ability to live in an e-house is growing more realized. Imagine a refrigerator that orders food on consumption and need algorithms? Ovens where recipes and cooking techniques can be downloaded? This may become a reality. There was a time in the not too distant past when the notion of, say, Skype, would have been unthinkable to the average layman. The day may soon come where property becomes a meta-brain accustomed to it’s owner’s needs.
