5 technology trends that can change our lives


The world of contemporary science is developing with unimaginable speed. Each day humanity invents new devices, medicine, apps and programs; we discover planets, galaxies, unbelievable facts about the universe and ourselves. Technologies drastically change the reality we live in, it transforms the way we think, work, and go on with simple everyday tasks, as well as our dealings with more complex issues of the modern world.

So how exactly does technology affect each of us? In the following article, we will get acquainted with some of the technology trends and inventions that can alter the way people of the Earth live.

Quantum computers

Well, as we all know computers are not exactly new technologies in any way. They have been around for ages and have become a staple element of our everyday routine. In the recent years, they have become increasingly more powerful. And here we have quantum computers – one of the future technology trends that will certainly affect everyone. What’s so special about these computers? Their incredible capabilities! These machines are going to be times and times faster than the current ones and will be able to deal with issues and tasks beyond imaginable. The impact on science and other fields of human life will be tremendous, that’s for sure!

Artificial Intelligence

AI or artificial intelligence is certainly the one future technology that evokes hot debates. Some people believe that these advanced programs will help humanity grow, others, like the tech mogul Elon Musk, are totally against it. Generally speaking, we already encounter AI in the present-day reality. All the smartphones and computers have embedded elements of AI; think about Siri and Amazon’s Alexa. But we are talking about the much-evolved version of this technology, the one that is depicted in Sci-Fi movies and books. Think more towards the robotic type of AI that has many traits of human intelligence and logic. While it is quite exciting to think about the possibilities this invention can bring to the world, it is also able to cause other types of changes – the devastating ones. Many scientists believe that it is a dangerous road we should explore with an extremely cautious.

3D Printing

While this is one of the tech trends that are already in use, there are much more to it than meets the eye. Think not just toys, some tools or other everyday objects; we are talking about pretty much everything being 3-D printed. Spaceships, cars, medical machines – everything! Moreover, there are projects to print human organs and body parts from their own cells. Basically, you might not need to buy anything in the future – just the 3-D printer that will satisfy any demand you have. This technology can potentially change the whole consuming pattern that exists nowadays. In a few clicks, you will be able to download the desired layout from the Internet and print it at home. It is just as easy as visiting Australianwritings.com.au for getting help with any kind of assignment. Medical application is also impressive and can change the way we live greatly.

Self-driven Cars

Although technically it falls under the AI category, the immense change this invention can bring to the humanity is extensive. What once was just a fantasy of a creative writer, now is slowly becoming a reality. Driverless cars are not so distant invention that is being tested in the present days. This is one of the current technology trends that is almost available to the wide audience. But this path of development comes along with some troubles, as several of the first self-driven vehicles have gone out of the control and did some harm. The only one thing that is missing from this futuristic scenario is a flying option for cars. Let’s hope it will arrive soon!


This term might seem quite simple – it is a union between biology and cybernetics. However, it also includes genetic engineering and bionics. One side of this exciting scientific field is dedicated to creating robots inspired by the human forms and organisms. Another aspect of biorobotics is creating artificial body parts and organs to implant into real people. This technology brings uncountable possibilities as well as a potential transformation of the way human beings look and feel.

It is quite hard to imagine that 200 years ago people weren’t able to fly, watch TV, deal with simple illnesses, and couldn’t go to the movies. Scientific advancement brought all of the above and is still growing strong. All that is left for us, humans, is to watch the progress evolving and adapting to our ever-growing needs, and hope that it will not take any wrong turns.
