Latest Tech Breakthroughs – Are They Viable Or Not?

23 Aug

When it comes to latest tech breakthroughs and advancements, Soteria Cloud like to keep our finger to the pulse of emerging technologies on the market. We couldn’t help but notice some of the latest advancements over the last year and would love to know what you think of them. Are they viable? Or are they deemed to be simply “usable” in the future but not quite what they were initially cracked up to be?

Let’s take a look at the top 4 that caught out eye:

Nano architecture – this was created by Caltech scientist Julia Greer who showed the world that strong and durable materials don’t necessarily need to be heavy and difficult to work with. Greer has dedicated her time to designing materials at a nanoscale. The result is a variety of materials including ceramic and similar which are lightweight and certainly not brittle. In fact, it’s considered one of the lightest, strongest substances ever made.

Car to car communication – this technology is already in production and is said to be seen incorporated in new car models in just a few years. It’s a type of wireless technology that allows cars to broadcast their position, speed, brake status etc to other vehicles. The hope is that this system will deter accidents and help drivers feel and be safer on the road.

Helium balloons carrying cell phone connectivity technology – for years, people living in rural areas or away from cell phone towers have struggled to get online! With project Loon, helium filled balloons packed with electronics (solar powered) make it possible to link a radio to telecommunication networks on the ground. These balloons will be sent into the sky – making it possible for smartphone users below to connect to the internet, in areas where the service was previously not available. This technology may be available in the next 1 to 2 years.

Internet of DNA – this concept is something that is currently being worked on where genetic information will be indexed and shared via its very own internet network. The system will make it much easier for medical facilities to trade genetic information. This technology should also be available within the next 1 to 2 years.

There you have it! Let us know what you think. How do you think that these technologies will change our lives?
