Tech and science enthusiasts make predictions about the future of technology and new tech devices all the time. There is always something great to look forward to, and seeing new tech in 2021 is inevitable, all thanks to advancements in technology and life sciences. While 2020 was a great year for tech devices, 2021 is shaping up to be even better. If you’re looking to kit yourself up in some tech this year, here’s what you have to look forward to.
5G Smart Devices
The world is now waiting for the complete transition from 4G to 5G. A Chinese tech company, Huawei, has already completed the implementation of its 5G infrastructure, and other companies are working on developing a more advanced version of it.
5G will enable our smartphones to work more efficiently by increasing the speed at which we’re able to perform actions on the internet while lowering the latency at the same time. Plus, the sensors in smartphones will also be enabled to work better to give users the best experience possible.
Engineers at MIT have designed a small apartment that can easily be transformed into any setting the owner wants. For instance, it can transform from an office to a gym, a lounge, or a kitchen. The apartment, named ‘CityHome,’ comes with smart devices mounted on the wall designed to understand and implement commands.
Advanced Voice Translators
Most tourists have already started using pocket voice translators that translate various languages in real-time. People speak in their own language into the translator, and the message is automatically translated to the local language. This new technology translates up to 74 languages and has made traveling far easier for everyone.
Self-driving cars are already out in the streets in some countries; however, the advanced version of these automatic cars is yet to come, and it’s directly tied to the advancements in 5G. Self-driving cars in the future will be completely driverless, and they will be designed to change lanes, navigate, follow turns and curves on the roads, and much more. These cars will also be able to start and stop on their own without any human intervention. The cars will be supervised and controlled by humans, though.
LG Autonomous Robot
The LG autonomous robot is designed as a cleaning aid for restaurants, retail stores, education centers, and offices. This robot helps to keep the place clean and disinfected. This is an efficient solution to cleaning problems since the cleaning process takes time and is also not as effective with the current devices we use. This robot uses ultraviolet light to disinfect certain areas (a necessity in the time of a pandemic). It can easily move around various objects such as chairs and tables, and clean areas within 15 to 30 minutes.
The amazing Virtual treadmill is a gaming gadget and allows you to move around in your home in all 360 degrees. You can move up, down, or side by side easily through this virtual treadmill. Moreover, it has also been designed to detect different positions, for instance, if you kneel or bow. The VR treadmill is only 4 feet in diameter, so it won’t take up a lot of space in your room. You won’t even have to worry about tripping over or falling because you have to strap yourself into the vest before playing.
Ring Always Home Cam Drone
Security cameras are great but what’s even better is a home cam drone. The Ring Always Home Cam Drone is designed to protect your property by using a ring camera mounted on top of a drone that continues to fly around the house. The best part about this cool tech device is that it can move around and record images of the house from various angles. It can easily replace multiple outdoor cameras as it does a far better job. The drone is also designed to catch any noise through its sensors and move to the area where the noise emerged from.
This telescope is great for astronomy fans. It is compact and has a powerful view, and it is both a camera and a telescope. The telescope is only 15 inches tall and weighs only 10 pounds, so you can easily fit it into your backpack and carry it around.
Samsung Bot Care Robotic Assistant
The Samsung Bot Care Robotic Assistant is one of the latest innovations in the tech world. This robot uses artificial intelligence to recognize and respond to your behavior. It can easily memorize your schedule and daily habits and can even remind you of things you might miss out on. The robot comes with a digital screen and built-in wheels for easy movement. You can interact with it and even use it for video calls with friends and family.
Well, everything’s smart these days, so why not the tub?
The Kohler Smart bathtub offers light, fog, and aromatherapy features. It truly gives you a spa-like experience. It has been specifically designed to relax your mind and unwind after a long day. You can also add essential oils into your bath, which not only adds aroma, but also stimulates your senses.
With many of these devices either being out or set to launch in 2021, the future of tech looks really bright. Whether you’re looking for a way to make your bath time special or just want to gaze at the stars on a clear night, there’s a trendy tech device waiting for you in 2021.
