In today’s fast-paced society, technology is constantly being developed and improved. Technology that was considered popular just a few years ago may be completely obsolete in 2015. This makes it difficult to decide on what to invest in when buying new gadgets or investing in brands.
Below are 4 technology trends to look out for in 2015 that may be here to stay and develop over the years.
3D printing has become increasingly popular and the technology for it will only continue to improve. There is no doubt that in the future, it will be common to have a 3D printing machine in your home. The projected date for this will be in the next five years, but in 2015 there will be more awareness, prices dropping, and start-up companies using 3D printing to develop highly specialized and unique products. There are unlimited boundaries to this and we will continue to see the benefits to the 3D printing technology.
Companies will continue to produce products for the “smart” home. What this means for the average person is you will soon be able to control all your appliances in your house from a smartphone. This is something that larger software companies such as Apple, Google and Samsung are picking up on, and in 2015 we will most likely see some of this start happening. From the smart washing machines to wall ovens, connected appliances have already emerged on the market and will continue throughout the year.
This will change how we interact with our household items and completely transform how we live our lives. Even the most simplest things such as this Verbarius Digital Clock, changes how we view the normal clock by allowing you to tell time through words and phrases in five different languages.
For those that follow the news, you will know that Bitcoin did not do well in 2014. However, this has not and will not stop technology from attempting to change how we use money. In 2015, we will most likely continue to see companies push on financial technology space, meaning that in a few years we may no longer need to carry around money with us at all. The development of digital security has also played into this. As of now though, we will still need to carry our wallets.
Identity access through fingerprint and biometric technology has transformed from serious issues such as government security and crossing international borders to something as simple as accessing your phone. As technology has advanced so that users now do so much more online, including secure payments and information, biometrics continue to play a large part in the digital world. Digital security will continue to develop and issues of privacy and abuse of this will still be a topic of large debate.
