Whenever someone thinks of the future, incredible technologies, like flying cars, usually come to mind. While the ideas might not be correct, the unique and innovative technologies are usually close to reality. The next technology boom is right around the corner and these technologies will be at the forefront, leading the way to newer and greater heights. 

Voice Assistants

Voice assistants have slowly but surely invaded our homes and have established themselves as part of our lives. By 2022, it’s estimated that over half of U.S. households will own at least one. These assistants have grown increasingly helpful over the years by answering questions, ordering products, and so much more. Expect their capabilities to expand significantly and have a more global reach. 

Crispr

Thanks to this technological innovation, harmful genetic diseases could be entirely eliminated. No more cystic fibrosis or Huntington’s disease. This technology can identify genes that cause these diseases and effectively eliminate them. As more advances are made, Crispr will undoubtedly gain the capability to identify and eliminate more than just a handful of diseases and conditions. 

Robotic Assistants

They aren’t just children’s toys anymore. They might not be able to do everything you ask, but they have many practical and useful applications for homes and businesses. From added security to monitoring speed cameras to identifying hackers, these assistants will continue to go above and beyond while also finding new ways to entertain us and protect our data. 

Mixed Reality

Until recently, it was unclear whether mixed reality would ever fully take off and become the sensation so many hoped it could. Today, tech giants are investing billions of dollars into the technology and incorporating it into apps, devices, and games. Not many people know what forms this technology will transform into, but the possibilities are enough to keep trying new ways to use this. Expect a more global reach as well as more practical applications. 

Driverless Vehicles

Like most technology, these have been around for a while but have had a rocky start. Even the most successful tools we use today needed to have their limits tested and experience failures before the problems were corrected. Driverless vehicles will undoubtedly take off and newer, safer models will help increase road safety while reducing accidents. 

Artificial Intelligence

Automation is remaking the way the world manufactures products. A.I. is frequently used to battle cyber security. Machine learning is just beginning to reach new heights that are as of yet unpredictable. It’s just a matter of time before artificial intelligence is incorporated into every aspect of our lives and every industry we’ve created.
