With the advancement in technology, there is always scope for inventing new gadgets. Technological advancements made it possible to build devices that were not possible 5 years go. Technology has changed the way we purchase products, the way we live, the way we communicate, the way we travel, and the way we learn. As people’s demand and lifestyle change, the demand for advancing technology is high. Almost everything we use has been innovated to better versions.
Technological advancements have helped businesses to save time and cost of production which helped them to gain a competitive advantage.
Here are some gadgets you will likely be able to see in the year 2020:
1. 5G smartphones and networks: Industry groups and wireless carriers are already eyeing the transition to 5G technology, which will be deployed in 2020. 5G is faster and consumes less energy than 4G. 5G smartphones will experience much lower latency than comparing to 4G, which would mean faster-loading apps and websites, plus high-speed downloads of videos. 5G makes virtual reality useful in professional settings.
2. Virtual reality headsets: While only a few got the opportunity to try out a virtual reality headset, many manufacturers and investors think that these are going to be the next big thing in entertainment and communication. They offer compelling 3D experiences and will change the technology way smartphones did.
3. Augmented reality headsets: Augmented reality, which doesn’t offer a true version of holograms- will be the technology that will pave the way for shows and games to project characters and environments onto your living room and create immersive virtual a world that blends with your surroundings.
4. Devices that run intelligent assistants locally: The current intelligent assistants – Siri, Cortana, and Google Now – need an internet connection and lots of data to answer your question and respond to your query. But in the future, we will have smartphones, tablets, and wearables equipped with assistants that enable your device to complete complex AI tasks without being connected to the Internet. This not only saves the battery but also alleviate privacy concerns inherent with assistants.
5. Completely wireless smart home gadgets: Computers, smartphones, wearable devices – they all have to be plugged into a power source to be charged. University of Washington researchers have developed a technology that enables gadgets to work and communicate using only energy harvested from nearby Wi-Fi signals. Within a few years, this will result in battery-free gadgets, including security cameras, smoke alarms that never have to be charged.
