The developments in technology also show a variety of disruptions from a diverse school of thoughts. Many have been made to think that technology is an implication of the 21st century that rapidly trivializes our civilization, whereas others have taken an optimistic view of it as a way to bring the world closer together.
Have you ever imagined the future? Do you agree that all the right technology will be acquired by mankind for all the wrong reasons? Well, I believe in art that questions the creative inspiration of technology and technology. Ideally, rapid changes in the technological capabilities of mankind would dramatically turn the world into a state of utopia or dystopia. Only time will tell.
1. Perfect memory cameras to go ‘back in time.’
Soon, only by taping a pocket-size 12-megapixel wearable unit, we would be able to retroactively catch missing moments. What? How? The camera is in auto-edit mode for continuous recording, thus saving the footage from a fixed time frame. A time-lapse photograph would also be capable of shooting the brainy idea created by New York-based General streaming systems.
It will use Wi-Fi to wirelessly link to a smartphone to live-stream videos and images through the app. Murder Cases will easily be solved with this kind of technology, and you will never miss the magical moment your baby learned to call you ‘mom’ or ‘dad’!
2. Terahertz radiation device for reading closed books
The prototype device uses a band of electromagnetic radiation known as ‘terahertz radiation between microwaves and infrared light.’ The T-rays can make it possible to read closed books, to recognise letters written on paper stacks up to nine sheets high, as they can differentiate between ink and blank paper in a way that x-rays can not.
This technology can significantly assist researchers to scan ancient books that may be too brittle to open and also contribute to the development of office machines that can scan paper reams at once!
3. Handheld device to determine if the fruit is ripe
Have you ever bought fruit from your local fruit vendor, particularly Apple, thinking that it was ripe enough to find out that it wasn’t ripe for your demanding appetite? Ok, don’t think anymore. Thanks to technology, and more so to the minds of M.I.T, for curbing this common customer problem. To test the glow of chlorophyll in the fruit skin, the unit uses Ultra Violet light. As chlorophyll breaks down into other chemicals over time, the dimmer the light from the chlorophyll, the riper the fruit is.
The system will help farmers determine the best time to harvest their crops and also help Apple distributors who rely on guess work to decide where to send their stock, Because the ripest apples have to go to markets where they are expected to rapidly sell out.
4. ‘Slow Dance’ picture frame
Inspired by two of his friends who liked to dance, Lieberman created their wedding gifts as the first iteration of ‘slow dance.’ The wooden frame uses Strobe lights that blink at a pace that is too fast for the human eye to register, measuring 12.5 inches wide by 14.5 inches high. The pulsing lights flicker 80 times a second on and off and are synchronized within the frame to movements that animate whatever entity is suspended. Although the light flashes are too fast to see, they combine to vary the sequence of moving images imperceptibly with the high-speed acceleration, adjusting how they enter the eye and producing an illusion of motion that appears to happen more slowly than normal.
5. Detection of sarcasm by the computers
Machines experience a harder time instinctively identifying sarcasm since they are usually trained to read texts and access pictures based solely on what they see. In order to teach computers that people do not always mean what they say, computer scientists have begun to build a sarcasm-detection engine. This will allow advertisers to say whether their goods are celebrated or mocked and change their messages to sell you more things. Computers from Savvier could also help law enforcement agencies differentiate real threats from those that exaggerate or make fun of serious subjects, such as image-use posts from Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.
Automated customer service systems might also help find out whether you are frustrated and route you to a real person or allow politicians to sense whether their messages resonate with voters.
6. Use of squids to self-fix clothes
One day, as per the new report, we will wear clothing that can repair their rips with the help of coatings made of squid proteins. Importantly, damage may be a matter of life and death to things such as hazmat suits or biomedical implants. Scientists are going through sleepless nights to come up with self-repairing films that could improve the lifetimes of goods of these kinds. While the previous self-repairing films worked easily, under wet, dry conditions they cracked and a more flexible material had to be added for use. Under both wet and dry conditions, proteins from squid ring teeth were found to be cinematic and elastic.
Scientists created a coating containing proteins from the squid ring-teeth so that the proteins migrate into the holes and tears in the coating when the fabric is immersed in water, connecting coating segments and fabric together to allow repairs. However, before self-repairing clothes appear in our local shops, there is still a lot to be done as the cost of the material is still a problem and how to scale up the manufacturing process to meet planned commercial needs.
7. Creation of laser using Jelly fish’s fluorescent proteins
Scientists may build polaritone lasers that work at room temperatures powered by nanosecond pulses by repurposing the fluorescent proteins that have revolutionized biomedical imaging and fully within cells, thereby making these lasers more relevant. The invention of Jellyfish lasers represented a breakthrough in Polaritone lasers, according to researchers. It has been claimed that these lasers have the potential to be much more powerful and compact than traditional lasers and could pave the way for more research in Quantum Physics and optical computing.
Ideally, the fluorescent proteins used as markers in living cells have been explored to be used as components for their molecular structures, an aspect that makes it easier to convert them into lasers for activity under high brightness.
8. Establishment of the first programmable and re-programmable Quantum computers ever
The much-anticipated quantum computing technology, according to LiveScience, would allow scientists to run complex simulations and produce fast solutions to tricky calculations. Quantum computers are proposed to be able to perform more calculations simultaneously in one moment than atoms in the universe! They represent data as ‘qubits’ that are in superposition (on and off simultaneously) that allow two calculations to be performed simultaneously. This implies that cracking encryptions that would have taken standard computers longer than their lifespan to crack would be simpler.
