As technology continues to grow and develop, 2019 will show huge changes in the way we live and use technology. Here are some of the biggest changes to expect this year.
1. Delivery Robots
More and more people shop online every day, and this has caused companies to rethink the way delivery works in our society. The obvious next step is to automate deliveries using robots, but the technology is not quite fully developed. Dozens of brands, however, are racing to come up with the best new delivery robot. From designs that resemble office copiers, to adorable Wall-E-esce figures, start-ups all over the world are working to combine form and function to create the most affordable (and the sleekest) delivery bot.
2. Better Smart Homes
Smart homes aren’t new, but this year, home technology will become almost completely integrated meaning you’ll be able to access all your smart home technologies in one place – your smart phone. Also, more and more smart technologies will hit the market this year. You’ll be able to ask your mirrors what the weather will be like while you’re getting ready, have you’re toilet to tell you your itinerary for the day, and brush your teeth in hyper speed.
3. Autonomous Vehicles
We’ve been hearing about self-driving cars for a while now, but this year they will actually hit the road. Autonomous vehicles are set to make great journeys (like a coast-to-coast road trip and drives around cities as taxis).
4. Tech for Women
This year, technology for women will (finally) bloom. From birth-control apps to smart breast pumps, the year will see more and more devices aimed at improving the lives of women specifically.
5. Bendable Screens
Sending the kids off to college? Watch out, because instead of posters to decorate their dorms, they’ll be asking for bendable screens. TV screens that “roll up like posters” will hit the market this year, and Samsung is set to lead the way in innovation.
So, which of these new technologies will be your first purchase? Comment below with your favorite!
