As we wind down the 2019 and the previous decade and look ahead to the New Year and the start of the next decade, technology is moving at a faster pace than ever before. Some changes have already started to occur and are built on previous technologies. Other technologies will just be emerging thanks to other advances.
1. IoT (Internet of Things): As IoT continues to improve, expect to find it on more than just personal assistant, thermostat and refrigerator. Pretty soon you can use IoT for your garage door opener, to start your washing machine or dishwasher, or start preheating the oven to cook your dinner.
2. Robots: You will start to see a wide array of robots designed to perform various tasks and functions. From sweeping and mopping floors to working on assembly lines in factories, robots will make our lives easier.
3. 3D Printing for Everyone: Up to know, 3D printing has been rather expensive and limited to businesses with deep pockets. As we moving into 2020, the costs for 3D printing technologies will continue to decline and make it affordable for everyone to own a 3D printer.
4. Disc-less Devices: Say goodbye to SATA hard drives as they will become obsolete. Future storage devices will use SSD and other digital storage methods that have no moving parts. CD/DVD/Blu-ray Disc drives will also become less standard with cloud-based downloads.
5. Nano and Bio-Technology: Expect to see more advances in Nano and Bio-technology in 2020. By the end of the decade, it wouldn’t be too farfetched to be printing replacement body parts, like heart valves and bones or even artificial skin for skin grafts.
6. Competitive Social Media Sites: Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites are aging. To stay competitive with the rise of new social sites they will need to incorporate technologies like AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality).
7. Paperless Newspapers and Magazines: Print media will slowly and gradually switch to a new electronic digital form of paper where users can still have the sensation of touching and feeling the pages. The digital paper will automatically update with new content as it is released on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
8. Death of Cable TV: Expect more big-name networks to start offering streaming services as cable subscriptions continue to decline. By the end of the decade, cable and satellite TV will be a thing of the past.
9. Wireless Electricity: There are already wireless charging stations for smartphones, earbuds, and tablets. Expect this technology to further advance to the point where wireless electricity will be powering our homes and businesses.
10.Autonomous Vehicles: 2020 might be the year that we start to see the release of the first fully-autonomous vehicles.
