The technology is getting advanced day by day and we daily see new inventions, discoveries and such related every time. The reason behind all these inventions and new things is the solutions of the problems we face in our daily life. Let suppose, we connect with our people thousands of miles away just with a small piece of a device which is the smartphone. Same way, if we think and observe our daily lifestyle we see a lot of problems that haven’t yet been solved but we need to get them solved.
These inventions make our life easier, efficient and stress-free. The reason is we always expect something new and new from those who invent and develop. Also, these all things have a negative impact on our lives too, but that can be limited to how we use these services and technologies. In this list, I’ll be explaining all those cool devices that can make our life easier, efficient and creative.
1. Driver-less Cars
More than a year, Google introduced they are working on self-driving cars and yeah, it’s one of the great things done by Google X. The car uses radars, cameras, sensors and Google maps to drive thru the streets and roads and can sense objects around it. The project is pretty cool and awesome but still it’s all the way in testing mode and not yet officially announced to public so we can buy it. The self-driving car will be a great addition to our daily lifestyle, will make our daily usage of the car more easy and convenient. People would be able to pick and drop where they want even if they can’t drive. We can only expect to make it fully stable and get hands on any.
A few days back, Rolls Royce announced a fully autonomous car which will be launched by 2020. The car has a unique design and look. The car is currently named as “Rolls-Royce 103EX”. It has one door which can be opened upward having attached with the top of the car. Having no specific dashboard unlike the other cars, it is packed with a full-screen panel in front of the seat which can be controlled via voice commands.
2. Microsoft Hololens
A few months back Microsoft announced an advanced technology based Holographic device named as “Hololens“. The main purpose of this device is to bring the objects from the computer for you into the real world so you can see it in your Hololens device and you will be also able to interact with them. The device is using a camera, sensors and other motion instruments via which a user can easily interact with the Holographic objects seeing thru the device. This is one of the coolest devices we have ever seen. Users are also able to play games in the real world by having the Hololens. Hololens received a highly praised critical response as it will help in different various activities we do i.e. learning, virtual reality, working and much more. Check the below video and you can easily understand how it can help us. Currently, the developer edition of the device is available at a price of $3000. If you are a developer you can grab it, Click here
3. Modular Phones ( Google’s Project Ara )
Google has been working on a modular phone which is named as “Project Ara”. The main purpose of the modular phone is to create a smartphone which has been combined and put into function just by attaching various modules to the main frame. These modules are i.e. camera, CPU, ram, battery and such related. The main and greatest feature of the phone is you can easily swipe modules or change the way you want. It would need just to connect it your main frame. The middle or main frame is a panel where at one side you can attach the screen and the other side it has specific spaces for modules. Let’s say if you have less camera and want to go for a tour, you can easily swipe up the greater camera with the bigger battery and the solution is solved without change the whole smartphone as the way we do now. Below is the video you can easily understand the whole idea behind Project Ara.
A short history of Project Ara: The idea was brought up by a guy named “Dave Hakkens” and he named it “PhoneBloks“. He got a great response and personally I was also impressed with the idea. Sooner or later one had to come and turn this thing into action. Google came in and started work on this named as “Project Ara”.
4. Artificial Intelligence
The industry of Artificial Intelligence has been gone upwards dramatically as it has importance in our life. Things that humans handle such as calculations, analysis, actions and more a lot can be now handled by Artificial Intelligence. The worth of Artificial Intelligence comes in that it can do all the actions which are done by several human beings and it can do it in a very short time.
In the recent news, IBM has created an artificial intelligence lawyer named as “Ross“. Now, a Law firm Baker & Hostetler has announced that they hired the IBM’s Ross lawyer to handle their lot of work. The Ross can analyze, look into the case, check the past records and much more work to sort out the problem. This makes the legal system easier and the cases will be solved seamlessly if all of the law firms deployed the AI.
You may have seen shipping your goods to your home via different delivery services such as DHL, UPS, and more a lot. Also, you can get deliveries in your local area just by shipping the products over local transport or cargo. The delivery method is now getting into next level which is announced by Amazon. Amazon announced their new delivery/shipping source named as “Amazon Prime Air” via which your products will be delivered via drones right on your address. Probably, these drones will be advanced and have some high tech so they can be controlled by Amazon over long distances. This can easily solve the shipping problems such as waiting for shipping and the problems faced by the local transport, the delivery timing as Amazon demonstrated very less timing for the delivering of products. These drones will be off the streets and easily ship all of your products. The future delivery system has not yet been started but it will be started soon.

6. Payment Systems ( Samsung Pay )
Years ago, we were making our transactions with cash holding in our wallets. Then, we changed this and in the recent time, we make our transactions through our credit & debit cards. Now, it gives some sort of security from theft and someone just gets your credit card from you at serious situations so the thief won’t be able to withdraw money due to ATM security. In the most recent time, payment system has been upgraded to next level as the first player is Samsung. Samsung created a new payment gateway named as “Samsung Pay“. Samsung Pay supports all the major credit cards such as VISA, MasterCard etc. The process is somehow very secured and authenticated, you will have to add your any credit card in the Samsung Pay application after that you will need to verify you purchase through fingerprint authentication which is another security layer for making secured transactions and then just tap your device to the terminal, Congo! your transaction has been made. Actually, it’s one of the most secured payment methods I can say, you don’t need to hold your credit cards all the way in your wallet. Save it your device and make payments anywhere anytime. Currently, it’s been launched in few countries and Samsung is working on to make it available on a Global scale.
7. 3D Printing
The 3D printing is now becoming a trend or can call it the efficient way of creating cool things. We have been far ahead of that old 2D printing where we have just to put our paper in the printer and get some sort of text printed on it. Now, you can easily print objects with using the 3D printer and that objects are exactly as you designed. The best thing about the 3D printer is it can get you real time objects without hassles. Let’s say if you are designing a product so you can easily create the prototypes for first before making the final, and the prototype can be easily made with the help of 3D printer easily and seamlessly. The process of the creation is quite simple, you will need to design your element through any designing software which is supported by the printer. Use the print functionality and the printer are using some sort of material to make objects from. This will enhance our productivity, even more, users will be easily getting their objects made by 3D printer instead of going to market to consult someone else. There are various qualities and sizes of 3D printers available on the market.
The classic times, when you was wearing an expensive watch over your wrist and it was only able to tell you the time & date but people would likely admire or like your style with it. It was also a fashion trend. Now, the things have been changed dramatically. Having that big sized wristwatches are replaced with Smart Watches, these watches give you a smartphone functionality in that small piece of a device on your wrist. Smart watches are now having the great tech to give you the ability to make calls, send msgs, locate the maps, check your health, track your exercise and much more. The watch will be connected with your smartphone and all those calls and msgs can be easily handled from your smart watch via touch compatibility or voice control commands. The top brands are Samsung Gear S, Moto 360, Pebble, Apple iWatch and much more.
9. Gesture Control ( Project Soli )
Google is working on a gesture control project named as “Project Soli”. The main purpose of Project Soli is to control your most of the electronic devices with making gestures without touching the device or doing something else. Currently, we are seeing something similar from Samsung such as Air Gestures and such related via which we can only make certain actions. The Project Soli is far ahead and useful than that, you will be able to make actions with your daily life gestures. The work is performed by a sensor which emits electromagnetic waves and the action can be done. Best part of this technology is, you will just make your simple gestures to perform the action such as clicking, moving, volume up/down, scrolling and much more else.

10. Interactive Clothing ( Project Jacquard )
Google is not only working on advanced technologies to make living more better and easy but it is now going to a next level where Google is working on interactive clothing named as “Project Jacquard“. This might seem very weird to you but yeah, Google is onto it. The main idea and purpose of creating interactive clothing is to integrate the technology in clothing so the users can control their most of the electronic devices just by making some gestures over their own dress. The technology made possible in the textile by using some sort of conductive yarns which makes the possibility to enable the gestures that is connected to your electronic device.
