Some of the electronic trends we are presenting here in this post are not new. They have been developed since past years and even have a great success right now. However it is expected that 2016 will be a great year to exploit popularity and use of some specific technologies and products.
So, here are the six trends that are going to exploit this 2016:
1. Virtual reality
Facebook recently bought Oculus Rift, a company that developes virtual 3D glasses. They are not the only ones interested on a technology that makes playing videogames much more real. But not just videogames are going to be more realistic. Virtual reality pretends to be something more and to be a very important actor in the entertainment industry, including movies or live streaming shows (something that happens to be really exciting).
One of the electronic trends that it is expected to become very popular is the wearables development. Smart watches, intelligent clothes and bracelets with electronic chips that measure our constants, effort and are connected to the Internet so the data collected can be shared, read and being used by other apps on the cloud or our smartphones, tablets or other connected objects. These devices will be really important for fields such as healthcare or sports, helping people and professionals. It is expected that this objects will be also very helpful when trying to understand emotional processes while people watch movies or goes shopping. This information could be extraordinarily important for marketers, for example.
3. Battery chargers
Nowadays, one of our big problems (talking about connectivity and electronics) is the limitation of the batteries capacity in our devices. custom USB power banks and USB gadgets, are the most common way to bring energy to your phone or tablet. Though, to make charging easier and not to be necessarily aware of the lack of battery of our device, some people have started to design intelligent systems that automatically recharge smartphones or tablets, even wirelessly. Bluetooth is one of the technologies tested for this purpose.
4. 3D printing
The revolutionary 3D printing is going to be even more revolutionary in this 2016. New materials including metals, carbon fiber, pane or even biological compounds are going to be essential for fields such as medicine, engineering and many other more. It is now possible to print skin and some organs tissues, opening a door to really important advances on medicine, for example.
Protecting websites and online platforms from hackers and other attacks or failures is one the main challenges for security architectures developers. E-commerce and payments on the Internet are gaining more and more presence in our daily life, so it is necessary to take actions against online fraud and online criminals, but also it is necessary to strengthen platforms due to provide safe environments for shopping or managing our money in online banking.
These flying machines with cameras are becoming incredibly popular not only for entertainment but also for professional uses. Shooting movie clips from the air in an easy way results incredible images with a reduced cost of production. Furthermore, drones are not only used to shoot images. Drones can also transport objects, so they are expected to be an alternative of transport when designing logistic strategies for companies, like Amazon has starting to do.
So, now that you know what lies ahead in the coming months. What are the electronic trends that makes you feel most excited about?
