New Technologies that Will Have Impact in 2022
Having barely learned to live in the world of computers, humanity immediately moved to the world of smartphones, and from it to virtual reality, drones and 3D printing. In this article, we will talk about the technologies of the future, which will have a breakthrough in medicine, education, business and other industries.
Unlike AR, VR does not complement reality but simulates it completely. In addition to VR headsets, there are pilot training simulators, relaxation apps, museums and galleries. Virtual reality has great potential. It can be useful in gaming, and many people already understand that.
According to The Boston Consulting Group, the use of self-driving cars will reduce the city’s car fleet by 60%, which will reduce the number of accidents by 90% and the amount of exhaust gases by 80%.
Unmanned vehicles are not only cars but also public transport. Autonomous trains run in Dubai, Singapore, Vancouver, Paris, and Tokyo.
NFT and Blockchain
Blockchain and cryptocurrencies are no longer a novelty in the world, but they can be still improvised. In any industry, the Blockchain network is used widely as well as cryptocurrencies. They make everything faster, safer and more catered to users’ needs. In any industry, you will discover that the importance of Blockchain and cryptocurrencies is rising at lightning speed.
One of the most important industries that will probably see the rise of cryptocurrencies is online gambling. You can already see a lot of Bitcoin casinos offering their customers the possibility to play crypto slots and deposit money via digital coins. One of the best examples is PlayAmo – the casino that has entered the industry with the following innovation. No wonder, in 2022 the number of such casinos will only grow and the Blockchain network will become pivotal.
Internet of Things
This is the interconnection of different devices that work with each other without human intervention, forming a single system. The technology is more often used in industry, where not only individual conveyors are automated, but also entire plants.
The Internet of Things provides opportunities for many industries: logistics, restaurants, agriculture, and energy. Here, systems and sensors will analyze the current demand for goods or services and automatically adjust to it.
There is a lot of space for everyday life: monitoring the consumption of water, electricity, heating, combining smart houses into smart areas.
StarLink is not yet a technology, but the idea of high-speed Internet via space satellites around the earth from SpaceX. It will help to provide Internet to hard-to-reach regions without wires and radio communication towers.
Contrary to rumors, StarLink will not be a free service. But its coverage will allow you to occupy niches with low competition and use the Internet high in the mountains or in a distant forest at the same speeds as in the city.
3D printers print small items, car parts and even entire houses. But the future of 3D technologies lies in the creation of artificial biological tissues. Now they are already printing 3D implants to restore the skull and bones, human skin directly on the patient, noses, ears and eye prostheses.
Eternal Hard Drive
Cloud storage needs updates and regular backups. Eternal hard drive can reduce the cost of maintaining such systems. It is made of quartz glass, a material resistant to fire, water and radioactive radiation. Such a disk can store information for a hundred thousand years.
This is one of the most practical trends in the field of wearable gadgets. For example, Omnifocals from the Israeli company DeepOptics themselves determine the distance to the object and adjust the focus.
The Smart City concept will unite all information units into a common system. These are transport facilities, social institutions, cultural venues, residential buildings (not necessarily “smart”), communication networks, law enforcement agencies and social services.
Fast communication will help you instantly respond to the situation: fill the demand for services, provide prompt assistance, control traffic congestion, prevent crime, dispose of waste, etc.
There are examples of “city of the future” segments in Amsterdam, Milton Keynes, Stockholm, Barcelona, Moscow, and Tel Aviv, but the launch of a full-size system is still far away.
