This is National Technology Day (May 11) in India. It is celebrated to honor the contributions of Indian scientists and scientists in the field.
Just a few decades ago, technology was something that seemed mysterious. We’re sure there are machines but the technology -driven world we have today and the way technology solutions have reached even the man on the street is something that wasn’t there before.
On National Technology Day 2022, let’s take a look at 5 things that have become commonplace and we can say we couldn’t do without these pieces of technology.
Smartphones started the first wave in our technology -dependent world. This gizmo makes many things unusable in one stroke. The phone is no longer something you use just to call your friends and family but it has become the center of entertainment, camera, cinema maker and more. Technology critics have often criticized smartphones by calling them ‘portable tracking devices that people are ready to take with them’.
But everything is said and done. Smartphones aren’t going anywhere.
When smartphones have become an inseparable part of our lives, wearables are making their big entry. It suddenly became a priority to complete 10,000 steps per day to achieve health goals. Do you think you are stressed? Check your blood pressure with the band you are wearing.
Trends come and go but if anyone maintains his position, we lappy. In the last two years when working from home has become a worldwide norm, laptops have gone through a renaissance of sorts. It was estimated a few years ago that laptops would soon be things of the past and lose the race against the rapid advancement of smartphones and tablets.
But there’s nothing like touching good keys physically when you’re killing your office project.
It is often said that technology makes us lazy. But asking Alexa, Siri or any other virtual assistant to play ANY song we want is one thing.
Virtual assistants will soon become a reality in thousands of homes around the world. Everything from bulbs, fans, air conditioners and more has become smart.
It seems like a very clear, simple sounding entry on this list but it should be nonetheless. All the wisdom of phones, cars etc will be lost when the internet stops working. It is rapidly becoming the blood of our entire world life. The Internet is not a new discovery. But it remains the backbone of everything we do and as such it will remain for a long time to come.
