Now that we’ve covered the biggest moments in human history, it’s time to take a look into the future and imagine what the next great achievements will be. What will have changed by this time next year? What will have changed by 100 years from now? The only way to know for sure is to make some predictions, so here are some of mine.
Virtual Reality (VR)
A lot of virtual reality companies have emerged recently, but Oculus Rift is arguably one of, if not the, leading VR platform in terms of popularity and press coverage. Developers are already creating a multitude of games, simulations, and experiences for users to enjoy on their Oculus Rifts. So why has Virtual Reality been getting so much attention lately? Well, let’s start with how you use a VR headset: You either sit down at a computer (with or without an attached keyboard) or get up and walk around while wearing it. As mentioned before, there are two main types of headsets available; mobile VR units that work through your smartphone (like Google Cardboard), and tethered headsets that connect to a PC or game console (like Oculus Rift).
Augmented Reality (AR)
When most people think of AR, they often assume it’s just virtual reality (VR) without a headset. And while that’s sort of true, there are some key differences between VR and AR. First, unlike VR which immerses you completely in an artificial environment, AR adds information to your existing surroundings and enhances your perception of them. Take Pokémon Go for example; as you walk around in real life, nearby objects such as plants or public art are labeled with new information about these elements (based on your location). It makes everyday objects seem more interesting and gives users another reason to explore their environment beyond simply trying to catch Pokémon. Recent data shows that 25 percent of Americans have tried AR compared to just 8 percent who’ve used VR.
Blockchain is more than just a technology. It’s a concept that is changing how governments, organizations, and businesses manage their activities. For example, blockchain could let people make transactions without using banks to verify those transactions. It could also be used to track and verify medical records or even legal documents, such as deeds and wills. However, blockchain technology still isn’t perfect: Many technical issues need to be solved before it can be used at scale by mainstream companies or industries. If you want to learn more about blockchain technology or if you have an idea for a company that can use it well, read on! We’ll cover what blockchain is, why it matters and some of its potentials uses.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Artificial intelligence is on its way to revolutionizing every industry, from transportation to education and even healthcare. In a few years, AI could be driving your car and diagnosing your illnesses. Could AI be replacing you at work? It’s hard to say; while some researchers believe robots will replace humans in many industries, others believe machines are best suited for repetitive tasks or jobs that don’t require creative thinking. No matter how fast technology advances, it’s a safe bet that we haven’t seen anything yet. Stay tuned as new developments unfold—and get ready for an exciting future!
If you want to remain relevant in an increasingly digital world, there are several skills to focus on developing now. First and foremost is digital literacy: knowing how to use software programs such as email, browsers, and search engines effectively can make all the difference when applying for jobs online. It also helps to build strong communication skills so you can network with professionals online and translate technical information into plain language understandable by clients who may not be familiar with your industry. Finally, technological know-how gives professionals great career flexibility: knowledge gained today isn’t outdated tomorrow!
Technology changes our lives – Third Paragraph: On average, experts estimate tech tools change our lives about once every decade; however predictions vary depending on what skill sets they believe will become outdated over time.
Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency
The most significant way new technology and currency will change our world is through cryptocurrency. If you’re not familiar with bitcoin or altcoins, they are decentralized currencies or assets (depending on your definition) that have value and are transacted much like real money would be. However, these assets are not controlled by a centralized financial institution such as a bank or government. Instead, they’re distributed throughout an entire network of computers around the world that maintain a ledger recording every transaction in history. This ledger helps to keep bitcoin and altcoin transactions safe and secure—because no one person controls it all—and greatly reduces fraud risk because nothing can be spent without being recorded in history first. Cryptocurrency is still very new, but its potential for use in business is tremendous. For example, imagine if online shopping were built on top of a digital currency instead of credit cards. You could buy anything from anywhere at any time and instantly transfer funds back to your bank account. Or what if Amazon started accepting cryptocurrency as payment for their services? What if Apple Pay worked with crypto instead of just credit cards? These ideas may sound far-fetched now, but given how quickly crypto has taken off in recent years I wouldn’t bet against them becoming reality sooner than we think!
