The backbone of technology is evolution. Every year we see new inventions and breakthroughs in technology. The tech stories which would qualify for the top slot this year would be
Companies like Pebble decided that the best use of the phone could be made by not taking it out of the pocket. With giants like Sony, Google and Samsung entering field, this sure has been the best bet of 2013. Smart watches help you to check data and manage your phone after synchronizing it.
INCREASED SOLAR EFFICIENCY
Nanotechnology has made it possible to double the efficiency of the Solar cell, thereby taking the management of renewable energy to a whole new level.
Theodore Berger, a neuroscientist and a biomedical engineer has cracked the code of enhancing your memory with the help of an electronic implant. Patients with memory loss tend to gain big time.
Getting more efficiency out of DC power has encouraged the development of a high power circuit breaker which has made the possibility of these Supergrids a reality.
SELF DESTRUCT SOCIAL MEDIA
Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy’s brainchild, Snapchat, the latest mobile app to be hot enables the sender to decide for how long his message or pic should be visible to the viewer. After that the text or pic vanishes, forever taking the privacy to a new level.
SMARTER ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Recognizing objects and the ability to translate speech are the next frontier which machines are conquering. High amounts of computational powers are enabling the machines to get smarter.
We all know the ability of machines these days to sequence DNA. The next frontier however is the ability to Sequence DNA inside the womb. California based Verinata, a startup has achieved this feat and has been taken over by Illumina, manufacturers of the most widely used DNA sequencing machines.
DATA GENERATION FROM CHEAP PHONES
Technology to generate data from ordinary phones is breakthrough which happened this year and has helped in analyzing the behavior patterns of the mass population.
Rodney Brooks has been successful in manufacturing a blue collared robot which performs complex functions which were not possible for artificial machines.
General Electronics has created 3 D printing technology which enables them to replace the metal casting and welding by simply printing the parts with laser.
As the technology grows day by day, sit, watch and enjoy!
