In the last few years we have observed some of the great innovative inventions that has completely changed the way of living life and performing the daily life activities. Realizing that the digital transformation is not only a technological shift, but an organizational change at the intersection of technology, business and people, such reflection must take into account countless possibilities.
From gadgets that make lives easier, to products that disrupt an entire industry, innovators, entrepreneurs and engineers are hard at work to create a better, smarter, and even more exciting world. It all happened in the year 2019.
Let’s have a look at some of the great inventions that took place in 2019
Voice Assiatance Makes your Work a Fun in Everyday Life
In four years, the majority of American households are expected to own a voice assistant device like an Amazon Echo or an Apple Homepod. Thanks to the power of artificial intelligence (AI), voice assistants will grow increasingly helpful.
Even today, Amazon releases regular updates to Echo in order to help owners get more from the technology. The company recently reported seeing larger-than-expected gains from its voice assistant, which is why Amazon is now doubling down on the technology.
Voice assistants are making a significant impact in markets across the globe, and some observers expect that in the future we will communicate with technology through voice rather than text.
Now Your Car Doesn’t Need a Driver to Move
Automakers like Tesla, General Motors and Volvo have already developed semi-autonomous vehicles. But self-driving technology is rapidly evolving. General Motors announced that it will launch a car that has no steering wheel or pedals by 2019.
Uber, meanwhile, is leading the push for pilotless flying vehicles, and has teamed up with NASA to develop an air-traffic-control system. Uber is also working with aircraft manufacturers to develop prototypes, with the intention of launching a beta program in 2020.
Give More Power to Your House with Smart Wind and Solar Power System
One barrier to mainstream use of renewables is integrating sustainable energy sources into the current power grid. Big data and artificial intelligence have made it easier to predict how much power wind turbines will produce. Anticipating power fluctuations is key to developing technologies for integrating wind and solar into the power grid.
Now Get your Work Done on Time With Robot Assistant
Companies like Boston Dynamics have already developed a wide variety of robot assistants that can be used in factories or on the battlefield. The company originally started as an arm of MIT and has since pioneered the development of intelligent robots that operate effectively in the real world.
Knightscope is another company working on a line of robot assistants for security applications. For example, its K5 robot features four cameras and can recognize 300 licenses plates per minute, per camera. It can also detect suspicious networks that may be operated by hackers.
Enjoy the More Nutrition in Your Meal with AGRICULTURAL DRONES
Farmers have begun to use agricultural drones adorned with cameras to improve the treatment of their crops. The drones allow farmers a unique perspective that previously-used satellite imagery could not provide. They help to expose issues with irrigation treatment, soil variation, and distressed plants at a much lower cost than methods like crop imaging with a manned aircraft.
The success of the drones is made possible by technological advances in GPS modules, digital radios, and small MEMS sensors. Together, these advances allow farmers to bring greater precision to their craft in order to reap greater rewards.
Have a Look Around the World on your Fingure Tips With Mobile Collaborations
The current infrastructure for collaborating in a professional environment can be counterproductive to getting work done. This problem is one that new apps like Quip aim to solve. The intent is to develop a system where every step of the collaboration process happens in the same digital space. It aims to create a more intimate experience by implementing chat features and a Facebook-style news feed, in turn creating a more collaborative experience. These new platforms aim to improve the efficiency and productivity of current workflows.
Build Your Dream Home Within a Month With 3-D Metal Printing
3-D printing has been in the talks around since many years, it has remained largely in the area of hobbyists and designers producing one-off prototypes. Printing objects with anything other than plastics—in particular, metal—has been expensive and painfully slow.
Through 3-d Printing manufacturers wouldn’t need to maintain large inventories—they could simply print an object with the help of these printers, such as a replacement part for an aging car, whenever someone needs it.
In the longer period of term, big scale factories that mass-produce a limited range of parts might got replaced by the smaller ones that make a wider variety, adapting to customers’ changing needs.
The innovation in technology can create lighter, stronger parts, and complex shapes that aren’t possible with conventional methods of metal fabrication. It might also provide much better control of the microstructure of metals. In 2017, researchers from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory announced they had developed a 3-D-printing method for creating stainless-steel parts twice as strong as traditionally made ones.
