The effect of this technological evolution is quite evident. As much as we adore the young video game savior MARIO, ever thought how would Mario survive the “Clash of Clans” attacks? Wondered how could you have ever played a board game like snakes and ladders while commuting, or while waiting in queue for that matter!
New technologies and evolutions have sure shot added a value in terms of goodwill, recognition, net worth, and market share for the organizations. Below are the few trends that could really become a rage in 2017.
- 3-D Printing: With the 3-D vision, the quality of the picture has already improved. These days the printing also is 3-D enabled. Although the technique was developed back in the late 19th century and has upgraded since then, 2017 can be a milestone year in this journey for the HSS machine is about to be launched. This will not only multiply the speed to 10 times but will also have the potential to revolutionize mass manufacturing.
Another factor in the predicted growth is Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology, a start-up group that has already accrued $50 million (€44 million) in investment capital. The technology uses light and oxygen to cure, and inhibit the curing of, a photosensitive resin, enabling the printing of objects at speeds from 25 to 100 times that of current 3D printers on the market.
- Artificial Intelligence: This is the most commonly used and most widely adopted technique these days to ensure the security of high-end clients, classified documents and confidential reports. This concept is all about technology taking over humans in the tasks that normally require a full-time human effort. For instance, visual perception, voice recognition, and fingerprints etc. This will become a rage in 2017 since it is pretty accurate and less prone to error. And that fact that it has an individual connect is like “A cherry on the cake”. Imagine entries to offices, our homes would be through our biometrics. This will be amazing as it will promote safety and security keeping the graph of technological strategy and up-gradation really high.
- Virtual and Augmented Reality: Does your mother, or sister, or girlfriend poke you for being a Tech Nazi? If yes, then congratulations, you are a product of cybernetics and technical science. Imagine a life without Pokémon GO or Clash of Clans or Candy Crush maybe. These have become our lifelines in tough times of loneliness and depression. With virtual reality coming to market, a whole new level of gaming was introduced to the youth. Being able to virtually experience a place, an event, a game would apparently be the best way to acknowledge its worth. By 2017, VR will capture the healthcare, real estate, education, and even the defense affairs industry. By this time next year, the market value is expected to inch towards USD 2 million. From its current valuation of a tick over USD 3 million, it will grow to USD 4.8 million by 2017 – and a whopping USD 16 million by 2020.
So the road ahead isn’t that bumpy but sure shot the journey would be similar to a roller coaster ride; for technology is only meant to change and transform into something better and better.
