In today’s age, technology keeps the world functioning at an alarming rate. But, every so often, there is a device/technology that is unveiled that blows everything else that proceeded it away. Truly, it is glorious to live in this age but it can be difficult to find the money to invest in every unique device that you see. The ultimate key is to choose the technology that interests you the most. If you are looking for your newest toy, then take the time to consider some of the following.
The Nintendo Switch
Nintendo is famous for creating innovative and unique video game systems. They did so with the Nintendo 64 (perfecting the art of the 3D platformer), Nintendo Wii (spearheading the dominance of motion control), and just recently with the Nintendo Switch. In case you have been living under a rock, this is the first console that can be transformed into a handheld. Thus, all the amazing games you can play on your television screen, such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you can take with you on the go. Consider this a combination of the Wii U and the 2DS.
A 3D Printer
By now, you probably have heard of 3D printing. It is truly an amazing innovation and it is one that is hard to fathom. If you can get your hands on one, which will require a serious amount of cash, the options at your display are nearly infinite. 3D printers can be used to create all sorts of handy equipment, such as headphone holders, signs, jar handles, and bottle openers. When the moment comes where your imagination runs dry, look up some more ideas as there are a plethora of them that await. Again, 3D printers are not cheap and may require you to save up money over time to eventually invest in one. But, that is not preventing you from doing a little research on them beforehand. Thankfully, Lady 3D has cut that part out of the equation and has all the information you need.
The Amazon Echo
Smart technology has already begun to dominate the world and in a few years, it could completely take it over. One of the catalysts to this domination is the Amazon Echo; which is a smart speaker that is capable of playing various forms of audio, voice interaction, setting alarms, providing real-time information, and controlling other smart devices. In other words, it is the virtual assistant that you have always craved to possess. With this technology comes shortcomings, unfortunately, and sometimes the Amazon Echo will misinterpret your requests. But, it is still a worthwhile device that comes in handy when you are busy with other activities.
A Robot Vacuum Cleaner
Yet another device that is operated with smart technology, but this one is specifically designed to assist you in cleaning your home. As it sounds a robot vacuum cleaner is an automated version, but it typically comes in a circular design. It holds many advantages over traditional models, including the time it saves as it does the work itself, the ability to clean when you are not present, and the minimal maintenance that is required on your part.
Virtual Reality Devices
In ten years, the world of video gaming could be vastly different. Virtual reality has just begun its dominance and do not expect that to end anytime soon. The overwhelming thrill of being able to fully immerse yourself in a video game is second to none. In addition, video game developers will continue to improve the experience as they become more accustomed to creating them. It is not all about video games when it comes to virtual reality devices, though. Simply pop on a Samsung Gear VR to enjoy virtual reality on a mobile platform. As time goes on more and more will continue to be developed, but as of now, you could get a Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, among others.
By this time next year, this list could end up being entirely different. That is how technology is wired, as companies worldwide continue to push the envelope for future innovations. For now, you can take the time to enjoy all the above devices.
