We have seen great leaps in digital technology in the past the past five years. Smartphones, cloud computing, multi-touch tablets, these are all innovations that revolutionized the way we live and work. However, unbelievably, we are just getting started. Technology will get even better. In the future, we could live like how people in science fiction movies did.
List of Top 10 Most Amazing Technologies in the world in 2017
10. COWAROBOT Smart suitcase
COWAROBOT R1 senses your movement and follows you on its own. It is designed to completely free your hands, allowing you to enjoy life even when you are on the go fully. Moving at a speed of 4.5mph, the suitcase goes up and down slopes of 15° and runs for 12.5 endless miles when fully charged. The R1 can see and feel the world around it. R1 is continuously collecting and sending data back to the CO-MOVE autonomous following system.
9. Cicret Bracelet
With the Cicret bracelet, do whatever you want on your arm. The bracelet can use social networks, check the weather, read your emails, and find your way. Over the last months, they have built a working prototype. They also successfully managed a motion sensing system on the forearm to work. The distorted the picture from the pico projector they put these two key features all together and sourced all the components needed.
Sense is the beautifully connected camera and smart home hub we have all been waiting for! In the country or away, Sense is there to help you monitor the things that matter most: your home and your family. See your home from anywhere, securely. Watch a live feed or recorded video of your home and know that it’s completely secure. Utilizing the Sense app and a unique encrypted connection to your smartphone, no one else will be able to access your video. Sense keeps your moments safe and within the family. Sense’s camera recognizes particular people in your home as well as their comings and goings. When Sense sees someone it does not acknowledge, it will ask you if you would like to identify them via the Sense app. Sense can tell you when your daughter comes home from school, if she is running late, or if she comes back with a friend. Sense brings peace of mind to your daily routine.
7. Robot chef that can cook any of 2,000 meals at tap of a button
Stirring, adjusting the temperature, pouring and adding ingredients are all necessary skills for a chef but they are slightly harder to achieve for a robot. However, that is not the case for this pair of robotic hands, which could be set to revolutionize cooking and kitchen operations. At present, it’s able to knock up a crab bisque, which it creates by replicating the exact movements of a professional chef. Creator Moley Robotics says that when the commercial version launches in 2017 users will be able to select one of 2,000 dishes from their phone and the robotic hands in the automated kitchen will make it.
Meet sweep, the scanning LiDAR for everyone. It’s an ideal sensor for detecting obstacles. Be it in air or on land, robots need to understand their surroundings to navigate safely. The need for intelligent sensors becomes critical when robotic vehicles are tasked with navigating near people or high-value objects. Sweep provides long and accurate range data to objects even in noisy sunlit environments. This provides higher resolution and accurate data.
5. Ultra-Ever Dry
Ultra-Ever Dry is a superhydrophobic and oleophobic coating that will repel most water-based and some oil-based liquids. Ultra-Ever Dry uses proprietary homophobic technology to coat an object and create a surface chemistry and texture with patterns of geometric shapes that have “peaks” or “high points.” These high points repel water, some oils, wet concrete, and other liquids, unlike any other coating. Ultra-Ever Dry has vastly improved adhesion and abrasion resistance, compared to previous superhydrophobic technologies. It will be used in applications where greater durability is required. This is one among the Top 10 Most Amazing Technologies 2017.
4. Volvo’s commercial production self-driving car
Imagine being able to switch your vehicle to autopilot, just like a plane, and then simply sit back and relax. Sounds impossible or it is not: soon, your Volvo will be able to steer, accelerate and brake itself, taking you safely and efficiently to your destination. By 2017, real-world customers will be using 100 self-driving Volvos on public roads. These will be world’s first large-scale autonomous drive project, and is endorsed by the Swedish Government. It’s all part of Volvo Cars’ IntelliSafe approach, helping reduce stress for you and congestion on our roads
3. Surgeon plans first human head transplant in 2017
Modern medical technology has granted doctors the ability to transplant many of the body’s organs, extending the life of people suffering from chronic diseases. Nevertheless, what about replacing all the organs at once along with the body they are in. That’s science fiction right now, but Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero plans to do the first human head transplant next year and even got a volunteer to operate on. This is not the first time he has made this claim, but now he’s got a volunteer lined up and has explained in more detail how he thinks the procedure will go. It is amazing.
2. SAMSUNG GALAXY X folding smartphone
You might think the Samsung Edge display is crisp, but something cooler is coming very soon. Samsung has been working on foldable displays for many years now, and the Korean giant might be ready to launch its first foldable smartphone in 2017. The smartphone has been dubbed the Galaxy X and is expected for release in 2017
Oceanspere is a massive highly automated fish farm that will grow 1,000 tons of ahi and bluefin tuna from eggs to harvest size at a depth of 1,300 feet a few miles off the coast of Hawaii.
There is lots to say here about the technology, which includes an automatic feeding system, water quality sensors, and thrusters that keep the sphere stationary, but let’s all just marvel at the fact that the Fish Matrix is real and set to begin installation by the end of the year. This first sphere is mostly about refining the technology, but that after installation and testing the earliest harvest could occur in late 2017.
These above are the Top 10 Most Amazing Technologies 2017. Surely 2017 has much to offer in technological advancements and the above is what to look out for.
