4 Latest Technology Developments November 20, 2015

Technology is a global factor that keeps changing and developing on day to day basis. New technology ideas keep arising every day. Outlined are a few latest technology developments:

Machines Taking Over Peoples Jobs

The Bank of England recently revealed that in the next 10 – 20 years machines have the possibility of taking over 80 million Americans jobs and around 15 million British jobs. Andy Haldane, the chief economist to the Bank of England also revealed that these machines are quite different; this is because they have the ability to replace both the human hands as well as the human brains. This could result to the middle management losing their jobs hence leaving them with no other option that to go for low skilled or high skilled jobs. However, with the rate at which technology is developing globally, human skills with time will not be required. This is due to the fact that the more technology develops the more there will be the creation of better machines that have the ability to perform just like humans or better.

Quick-Charge Battery by Huawei

Huawei which is one of the world’s tech giant is at it again; Huawei has produced two epitome batteries that have the ability to recharge in just a few minutes. There is one battery that is a low capacity battery while as the other one is a high capacity battery. Both batteries are rechargeable by use of a bespoke charger, the low capacity battery can charge up to 68% in just 2 minutes and the high capacity battery can charge up to 48% in just 5 minutes. The firm also confirmed that, with 48% charge, the longer life battery can last for as long as 10 hours talk time. This idea came about as a result of poor battery performance when it comes to portable devices.

The Valkyrie Aircraft Series

The San Francisco based Aircraft Company, Cobalt has decided to take private flying to a whole new level. Cobalt has introduced a new aircraft series, the Valkyrie series, this design-centric aircraft is designed to be sleek and modern. It is also quite fast, easy to fly and safe as well. The Valkyrie series comes with two different types of engine classes and both of them have a five-seat capacity. It also comes with an interior and an exterior that is totally customized to fit modern travel requirements. This aircraft also has 480km/h speed ability. It has a small wing that is responsible for ensuring that the plane does not stall in the air and also provides the aircraft with extra control and stability. This gives the pilot easy and safe takes offs and landings.

Google Delivery Drones

Technology giant Google has finally announced its hopes and plans to revolutionize its consumer deliveries by use of a drone. The project which has the name Project Wing plans to deliver consumer packages by drone come 2017. David Vos, who is in charge of the entire project revealed that the Project Wing’s aircraft is intended to have a wingspan of around 4.9 feet which is equivalent to 1.5 meters and a height of 2.6 meters. It will also have four propellers all of which will be electrically driven. Google has also revealed that the drones will fly on a programmed route by a simple press of a button. As if that is not enough they will follow regulations to safely respond in case they run into totally unexpected situations like windflaws and rainfall. They are also said to have a 5 pound carrying capacity, as well as the ability of hovering over the specified delivery location while the package is still winched to the ground.

The Project Wing delivery service is expected to be in a position to deliver consumer products and goods from door to door in less than thirty minutes. Google still has some challenges when it comes to Project Wing since it still has to meet all the regulatory hurdles that are required, as well as prove how viable the delivery service will be on the USA soil. However, as much as the idea of having drone based deliveries still sounds like an unreal ambition, quite a number of well established companies are now more than determined to drive this idea forward, this is simply a suggestion that Google will also succeed in meeting its 2017 target date.
