Technology is ever evolving and ever changing. It's both a blessing and a curse! We're so fortunate to live in a world where scientists and startups are constantly revolutionizing the way we interact with each other and with the world; however, it's incredibly frustrating to save up for the latest computer and for it to be an outdated piece of junk only a year later.
There are several conventions and conferences every year designed to announce new patented technologies and gadgets that are soon to be released for public use. Some gadgets and tools they announce are fairly useless, like a portable eye massager (it massages my eyes? Ewww. Weird!). Some have a very limited scope of use, like a smart watch that constantly monitors body temperature (good for someone with particular medical conditions, perhaps) or a pregnancy test that syncs up with your phone (for the tech-savvy woman who should've been better about birth control). And some things are so cool and exciting, we know we'll be waiting in line to get them the day they're released (like some of those virtual reality gaming-systems we've all been dying for).
Here are some gadgets that are coming out this year that would make all of our lives easier, more social, more exciting, and generally better. Keep your eyes open for these gadgets that'll soon be hitting the shelves. These are 13 new tech devices we'll all need in 2016!
13 Foodini Natural Machines
You've heard of 3D printing, right? Scientists and engineers have found ways to make these printers make much more than small machine parts; they can now make Motherboards, prosthetic limbs, even working organs! And finally, they can make food.
One of the greatest hurdles in virtual reality gaming technology has been incorporating movement. If you walk while playing a virtual reality game, you might walk into your wall in your living room. They've toyed with different ideas but haven't wanted to withhold VR tech for just this one reason. This is why Immersit was originally developed.
11 Activeon Solar X
We all love our GoPros and active cameras. It's fun to be able to document the view from the top of a mountain, to show everybody how amazing it was to work that hard to reach the pinnacle of something beautiful! And it's a pain to reach the top of the mountain and realize your camera is dead and you have no way to charge it. It almost makes the hike seem like a waste of time.
10 Owlet Smart Sock
Every young parent spends most of their time worrying: "Am I doing something wrong?" "Does the baby look sick?" "Is she breathing normally, or does it seem fast to you?" Sometimes young parents' concerns are well-founded and genuine; other times, they're just nervous wrecks. And that's okay! But wouldn't it be great if they didn't have to worry?
9 Telescoping Bicycle
Have you ever used a bike-sharing service? Many cities have them throughout their urban centers; you pay a flat fee for a year and you can use the bikes at their stations as many times as you need to, all year long. It's a great idea, but can be frustrating. No two people fit the same bike! Bikes are constantly being custom made to fit peoples' frames, height, builds, butt-shapes, and postures. Wouldn't it be easier if we could just adjust the bikes to fit us?
We all have the ringtone on our phone that has acted as an alarm sound that we now hate. Finding a way to get up in the morning and not feel awful for the first half hour is hard; how are we supposed to wake up happy when our dreams were so nice?
Kids today are learning how to use iPads and computers faster than they're learning how to use complete sentences. Remember when people went to college to learn about HTML coding? We've moved way beyond that.
5 Intel 3D Replay Technology
It's a very frustrating moment when you turn away from the TV and a huge play happens in a game you've been attentive to for the last hour. It's an even more frustrating moment when the replay they show after the fact doesn't give nearly as good a view as you'd hoped for. Is that it? You just missed the play and there's nothing you can do about it?
4 DietSensor SCiO Food Scanner
We're all in a bit of a tracker fad right now; everyone wears FitBits and Jawbones and the like to track their pulse, their temperature, their water intake, their steps, all day every day. But fitness is only a part of our health; what about all that we eat? Why isn't there an easy and painless way to track what we're eating?
2 Family Hub Fridge
How many times have we hungrily stared into our open fridge for long periods of time, letting the cold out, searching for something we want to eat? How many times have we rummaged through all of the sticky notes and calendars stuck on the fridge with magnets, unable to find the reminders we were looking for? How many times have you wished your kitchen had a stereo for when you're cooking elaborate meals and need to be entertained?
If you're a wine drinker that gets finicky about how it's served, you'll swoon over DVine. It's your own, personal, counter-top sommelier. It will pour whatever wine you want, from merlot to champagne, and pour it just right, at the right temperature and oxygenation level. Because of how the wine must be packaged to go into the machine, it only works with the company's wine (go figure), but who cares? It's still amazing wine. Even if you don't think you'd care about the minute details of wine drinking, you'll really be able to taste the difference when DVine pours your glass. They've also designed an app to accompany the product, which will recommend what to drink next or food pairings for your wine.
