Remember when smartphones, instant messaging, and video conferencing were ‘cool technologies and inventions’ and felt too futuristic to be true? Well, today we wear Fitbits on our wrists and talk to Alexa in our bedrooms; and while flying may have been unimaginable to most (other than the Wright brothers, of course), today the thought of being thousands of feet up in the air doesn’t give most of us vertigo.
Innovation is inspiring and some inventions are destined to change the world. At a time when the ‘latest technology’ is synonymous with Artificial Intelligence, Information Technology, Bio and Nano Technology, we are looking at altering life as we know it.
Being innovation and idea enthusiasts at Nordic Intent, we thought we’d round up a few of the top inventions of the last few years that promise to usher in a changed world.
While the world battles global warming, these solar panels that could be used to pave roads and driveways or programmed electronically to show specific markings on the road, are one of those cool inventions that can bring us closer to achieving our greener world goals, and may even be feasible in India if we overcome a few hurdles.
The future of mobile communications is right around the corner, and the central government of India has set mid-2020 as the tentative date for the commercial launch of 5G services. The next generation of Information Technology would mean an exchange of information at the blink of an eye and all the advantages that it implies. Want to know more?
Bioengineers are basically cooler Rubik Cube and Lego enthusiasts who have come up with myriad nanoscale objects and devices, including DNA origami (essentially utilizing DNA as building blocks for synthesis of nanoparticles) with applications in biosensing, drug delivery, biomolecular analysis, and molecular computation, and that’s just the beginning! If you’re up for more in-depth information on the applications of DNA Origami, go ahead and give this a read.
With the lightening speed at which technology is being cleverly utilised to revolutionise the use of tech and the world as we know it, the future most certainly has a stream of fun stuff in store. Have a cool invention or idea that needs help kicking off the ground? Get in touch with us.
