Technology has advanced at an unprecedented rate. Inventions that were considered groundbreaking once are becoming obsolete. However, this wasn’t the case just a few decades ago, because back in the day, people were satisfied by the things they had. Now, people are becoming tech-savvy. They want the latest devices as soon as they come out. That is why we are seeing an influx of newer gadgets every day. You might have observed how people flock to stores when Apple releases the new iPhone every year or whenever there is a new gaming console released by Sony or Microsoft. Due to advancements in technology, there is a surplus amount of new products and gadgets being launched every year.
Need is the mother of invention. This is especially true in this case since technological evolvement is partly responsible for this influx of new inventions, while the major driving force is the demand from users every year to get newer products and better technologies. There are quite a few reasons behind this systematic change of consumer patterns. Users have come to like these kinds of products due to increased awareness about the latest technologies. This awareness has recently developed into consumers and the core component behind it is the internet. Internet connectivity is the catalyst behind technological innovation. It makes the users aware of all the happenings going around in terms of new devices, gadgets, and technologies.
Technological Revolution and the Internet
The internet has been a major milestone in our technological advancement, so much so that many people consider it at par with the invention of the wheel. Because the wheel ushered the ancient humans into a new age of urbanization due to the advancement in measures of transportation, similarly, the internet has ushered mankind into a new age of technological revolution by providing mankind such a vast library of knowledge, a perfect tool of communication and so far, the most cost-effective entertainment medium. These are just a few benefits that humans have achieved because of the internet. The internet itself has been through a lot of stages of evolution before reaching the form it is found in today. Because, back in the day, it was considered a luxury item instead of a necessity and was restricted to a few entities.
With the passage of time, the global footprint of the internet increased along with its areas of applications, and future technological advancements made it cheaper, and now almost everyone has the access to it. The influence of the internet has reached such a pinnacle state that now there are almost 4.66 billion active users, which makes almost half the population. Plus the costs have significantly lowered like if you take the example of Cox internet, which is one of the best services out there, you will find speeds up to 1 Gig offered at very economical prices. This easy access to the internet has paved way for many indie developers and small organizations to come up with unique inventions of their own, and on the basis of these gadgets, make a name in the industry.
Top Tech Gadgets in 2021
A lot of new devices have come into the market over the past couple of years. Even though the pandemic slowed down the pace of these advancements quite a bit, but still, there have been many breakout technologies that seem like they’ve come straight out of a sci-fi film. Here we are going to discuss some of those gadgets and technologies that have been the stars of the current year.
Galaxy Z Flip 3
Smartphones have come a long way from their earlier forms. There was a time when we used to carry heavy blocks in the name of mobile phones, which were strong enough to break through a concrete wall. Remember the Nokia 3310? Now, smartphones have mind-blowing hardware that can give any high-powered laptop a run for its money. If that was not all, Samsung decided to “flip” the smartphone game on its head by introducing flexible touch screens. Although there are other companies in a competition like Motorola, Samsung has mastered this craft after initial failures like Galaxy Fold.
The flip phones are back in fashion all thanks to the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The best feature is that the complete screen is foldable making the device a perfect pocket fit. Plus this flip hasn’t come at the cost of low performance, as Galaxy Z Flip 3 is packed with industry-leading hardware and cameras, all this with an exciting twist, or should we say, an exciting flip.
Just like smartphones, quite a few advancements have been made in audio devices. We’re all familiar with the AirPods and their remarkable sound quality, noise-canceling, and spatial audio features. All this high-tech stuff with portability options and no wires makes it a mind-blowing gadget. What if we tell you that there are earphones, which don’t need to be plugged into the ears? Yes, you heard that right and Aftershkoz Aeropex is the product that has achieved that feat. These earphones work like every other listening device but without covering your ears as they sit on top of your ears and produce sound by vibrating your ear bones and canals. This allows users to have crystal clear audio quality along with awareness of surroundings – a thing which was a major safety issue with traditional earpieces. Yes, this might sound futuristic, but this technology is being used by other manufactures as well.
Ray-Ban Smart Glasses
This is a piece of equipment that you might have seen in a lot of sci-fi films. It is a gadget that mixes fashion with technology. Made by the famous sunglass company, Ray-Ban, these smart glasses have a front-mounted camera to record in first-person perspective and that too in HD quality. Along with this, we have an inbuilt speaker close to the ear that plays all your favorite tracks by synching with your smartphones. With all of this, there is a mic as well that allows you to take calls using these glasses. This gadget truly feels like something from the future.
Technological advancements are on a rise and they are evolving at an unprecedented pace with no signs of stopping. The gadgets that we are getting in 2021 are already things that the mind couldn’t have fathomed a few years ago. Most of these gadgets that we have mentioned in this list were only seen in movies but now they are our reality and it is expected to only proceed further from here and soon we are going to witness even more mind-bending gadgets.
