It is no secret that the world of technology is constantly evolving. Each year we’re seeing some amazing bits of technology and gadgets being produced that are just blowing out mind. Who knows where we will be in the next 10 years. But let’s focus on the now and what 2018 is going to bring with it. There are also some setbacks that we want to talk to you about that come with such advancements. So, if we’ve caught your attention, have a look at the 2018 gadgets you should be looking out for.
Phones & Laptops
Phones and laptops are dominating the gadget advancements at the minute. Let’s talk about laptops first, and we want to point out one downside to both laptops and phones. We know they’re amazing and year on year the tech included in them is massively improving. But boy do they seem to break so often! Companies such as Alpha Omega Tech Repairs are seeing more and more people come in with phone repairs, simply because dropping them has destroyed them. With that being said, we wouldn’t be doing this article justice without talking about the new Samsung S9 that’s just been released. The specs on it are looking amazing. It now boasts some of the best low light performance ever seen, the camera now has a slow motion picture option, and the display is clearer than ever. As for laptops, Macs pretty much dominate the market with their popularity, and the Macbook Pro 2018 is definitely one to watch out for. Make no mistake however, for both of these you’re going to be paying through the nose.
CES has not long come and gone, and one of the coolest gadgets by far that they displayed was the Linksqaure. It allows you to scan in pretty much every time, from food to clothes, it will use an infrared scanning device to work out what the material you’re scanning is made out of. How useful it would be on a daily basis, who knows, but it is super cool that it can do something like that! Secondly we’ve got the Electron wheel. It replaces the front wheel of your bike, instantly turning it electric. It’s a pretty cool device if you’re not happy with your current non electrical bike. Finally, we’ve got the all new racing drone. Not that there’s a competition somewhere that involves drone racing, but it does allow you to have a high powered drone at your disposal to take some of the best cinematic shots.
Gaming is really advancing in the technological world at the minute, but VR gaming is one area that is really improving at the minute. 2018 has saw the release of the Oculus touch VR controllers, which makes the real experience of VR even more real. These aren’t as expensive as some of the things we have listed today, but they’re definitely one of the coolest due to their ability to create such realness.
If you’ve not got your hands on some of these gadgets so far, we highly recommend you so very soon!
