The Takeover Is Here: The Rise Of SMART Technology
Not a day passes in our everyday lives where we don’t reap the benefits from the evolution of smart technology. Whether it’s using a smartphone or a tablet to discover new information or converse with friends, family or work colleagues, or to stream a movie to our TV screen, or even make use of a smartwatch to keep track of our everyday movements and work-out regimes somewhere along the line,s we find ourselves using some form of smart technology. The rise of smart technology has been astounding and before too long it will be part of each aspect of our lives.
IN THE HOME
The introduction of home-based Wi-Fi has quite literally opened the floodgates for smarter interconnected devices around our homes. Not only have sensors and voice activate devices given game consoles a whole new way in which to interact with a player, but smart technology has allowed a wealth of entertainment to come flooding into our homes. You can airplay movies, TV shows or music to your smart TV’s and enjoy them on bigger hi-def screens, and you can access libraries of films and shows through various apps such as Netflix or Amazon Prime.
But this new smart tech isn’t simply limited to the living room. You are now able to buy smart cookers that can assist you with recipes and controlling heat as you cook whilst smart fridges are able to track its contents each time you add or remove an item from it making that next trip to the shops all the more simple.
IN THE WORKPLACE
Well considered smart tech in the workplace can not only save employees’ time but more crucially can save your company money. Smarter payment kiosks and other more advanced payment methods such as Apple Pay have helped lead to even quicker transactions and fuss-free checkout experiences for customers and shop owners alike.
Workplaces that utilise smart solutions like environmental control that can adjust lighting and heat settings in relation to the number of people in the building at the time can not only benefit those paying the bills but is also great as a more eco-friendly solution. Wearable tech such as smart glasses can help provide workers with hands-free information if and when required which could work particularly well in the medical industry.
IN OUR PERSONAL LIVES
For some people smart tech and innovative devices such as this is exciting for fun rather than practical use. Mobile gaming has grown exponentially in the past few years and now with the introduction of the smartwatch gaming and playing your favourite games and on the best bingo sites around could be set to evolve even further.
Socially speaking the way in which we communicate with friends via social networks may also soon find their ways in to other technology. A smart TV that pops up a message received on your Facebook or Twitter account. Or simply being able to open and read a Tweet with a simple hand gesture could be the future for online networking.
