The Apple watch wasn’t welcomed with so much excitement but it did cause a positive impact on the company’s revenue. Competitors like Huawei, Nixon and Vector are also working on upgrading their products. In 5 to 10 years, we will have cheaper, more advanced smart watches available for everyone.
Tesla has given us electric cars, but we are looking at $25,000 to $80,000 for one of these. Predictions note that the market for these marvellous cars will take up 35% of the new car sale market by 2040. There is a high chance that almost every car will be electric or electrified in 5 to 10 years.
Entry of the Oculus Rift was a major win for virtual reality this year. The price tag is still on the high side but still affordable. The price is set to come down within a few years and this also means more time for more development. We predict that this will not only be for gaming but movies too.
Life just keeps dealing us some fascinating hands and technology is on a steady rise on the bright side. Our lives will be getting easier and more technologically dependent on these innovations. Our thoughts on the matter might be different, but they sure are coming.
