Where Music Is Headed Next
Electronics is taking over our lives. Every year consumer spending billions on electronics. Does electronic really simplify our lives or does it make it more complex?
The consumer electronics industry is expanding beyond its traditional borders as consumers start to adopt technologies that make use of ubiquitous computing power, sensors, and wearable product designs.
In 2014, Shawn Dubravac the chief economist of the Consumer Electronic Association had an epiphany and made this observation that among the trends escalating, customization is leading our technological world. He relates this to the new 3D printing companies like Bot.
He expect tablets ownership to reach record high of 50 percent of household once numbers from the holiday season are tallied up. Right now they are embracing new screens in their lives.
We’re starting to get innovations from hybrids of different technologies. You can make a car smarter by making use of sensors in a car to sense dangerous situations and then tie it to the control of the car through existing technologies such as cruise control. You can use “park assist” technologies to help you with parallel parking, so that you can take your hands off the wheel as your car parks itself, Dubravac said.
He noted that eye-tracking technology from Tobii enables companies to push technology closer to the human interface, allowing us to control devices directly with our eye movements.
He said innovations in radio technologies are also making all of the change possible, as it can be combined with sensors to gives smarts to devices that are far away from homes or businesses.
