With more users willing to adapt to the latest advancements in technology, companies are pushing the boundaries of human imagination and innovation. Companies are constantly in pursuit of the next big idea. iPhone, iPad, Kindle, etc… Gadgets that once only seemed to exist in Hollywood fantasies, are now available at every local electronics store around the world.
The world around us is changing at the speed of light. So it is perfectly normal for someone to pause for a second and ask: Is this the beginning or the end?
Well, it depends on how you look at it: Glass Empty or Glass Half-Full.
Since I’m a born optimist, I look at everything Glass Half-Full. I believe this is just the beginning, and given the decreasing costs of production due to economies of large scale, the days of micro-chips in the human brain aren’t too far. As of this writing, the coolest piece of technology available on the market right now is the Google Glass. The Google Glass is classified under the Wearable Devices category. I believe moving forward, this is the future of mobile devices: Wearable. From smart-watches to smart-lenses, companies are moving towards creating devices that the users can actually wear on them 24/7. Google recently introduced the Android Wear platform that enables app developers to create apps for wearable devices like the Samsung Smartwatch and the Google Glass.
With this huge push by Google towards wearable devices, don’t be surprised if heavy-weights like Apple, Microsoft, Dell, etc… jump in and start introducing cheaper and better devices. From what I know, Apple is expected to release at least one new product this year (2014); I strongly believe that it will be a wearable device something along the lines of the Samsung Smartwatch.
In conclusion, I’ll just say this:
Now is a really exciting time to be a Tech-Nerd. Instead of fighting technology, we should embrace it.
May The Force Be With You.
