High-tech innovations in 2015
2015 marked itself with the emergence of several incredible high-tech innovations that brought humanity closer to the future, which is associated with films from the science fiction genre. From creating humanoids to flying cars, genetically engineering to create an unborn child in accordance with the selected parameters, growing the brain in a test tube, we offer to get acquainted with the 10 most interesting novelties that prove that humanity is moving forward towards an “ultra developed” society.
10. Magic Leap Device
The product of the American company Magic Leap, working under the auspices of Google, appeared in the form of a gadget for virtual games, simulating the conditions of the real world. Although the technology is at the stage of approbation, integration and synchronization with the human body, its significance for the future of humanity is finally understood. The company's management said that one day this mechanism will replace any monitor and screen. On the basis of this technology will work smartphones and laptops, as well as it will become indispensable in various areas of our life.
9. Humanoid Yan-Yan
After the announcement, Hiroshi Ishiguro, a Japanese expert in the field of robotics, became the enemy of all actors and pop stars. He said that humanoid robots in the future will be able to replace a person in his workplace. He also said that the humanoid will not feel tired and will be much better equipped than the man. In 2015, in support of his words, an engineer with the support of Shanghai Shenqing Industry presented a real humanoid robot Yang-Yang, capable of talking, shaking hands when meeting and even hugging. This invention can really be called a landmark event in the field of science, but replacing a living person with a robot causes a lot of controversy in the world.
8. Car Communicator / V2V technology
Wireless technology allows cars to share information regarding speed, brake system status, driving position and other data. It helps the car to track the state of the space around to be able to respond in a situation close to the emergency. The most sensitive sensors are not able to 100% ensure the safety of the car, as this technology.All car manufacturers today have joined forces in the creation of this technology (V2V), so in the near future, the accident rate on the roads will fall sharply, and in some cases it can even be avoided.
Inventors have long dreamed of creating a flying car, and there are also people among those who are tired of traffic jams who want to transfer to it. The company Aero Mobil has created a prototype of such a car, although apparently it looks more like a plane that can travel on the road. The steel frame is sheathed with carbon cloth, so the car has a small mass. He has successfully passed numerous tests and is on certification, the receipt of which will be a signal for mass production. The appearance of such a car will rejoice in those countries whose road conditions promise to be the best.
6. Loon project
Worldwide, about 60% of the population lack access to the Internet. Google has initiated a Loon project to reduce this percentage. The idea is to launch a whole fleet of balloons powered by solar-powered generators around the world at a height bordering with open space, 18 - 27 km.The balloons will be filled with helium, will provide access to the Internet for mankind in the most remote corners of the world, which will contribute to the fastest recovery in conditions of natural disasters. In 2015, Google launched several hundred of such balls over the United States.
5. Radio signals
Since humanity is still interested in alien life, the British physicist Stephen Hawking and manager Yuri Milner initiated the development of new technologies in the field of tracking radio signals in outer space, which is 50 times more sensitive and 10 times better than the previous ones. Scientists plan to get the first results in 10 years.
4. Car with autopilot
Another significant innovation in the field of road transport boasts Google - an electric car with autopilot. It is equipped with software, in particular digital maps, and sensors capable of assessing threats to the car’s environment in order to ensure safe movement on the highway. Already today, two cars with two passenger seats and a small trunk have been created, which are being tested by Google’s specialists in the town of Mountain View, California. Testing is expected to finish within 5 years.
This technology will allow you to influence the quality of sperm and egg cells, as well as create an embryo “to order”. Since 2015, scientists have begun to use the electroporation method to introduce enzymes directly into the cell under the influence of an electric field. Now children will be able to tell their parents that if they are not satisfied with something, then they themselves are to blame.
2. Liquid biopsy
This new supersensitive method is of great importance for the field of human health. Now such severe and deadly diseases like cancer can be easily identified even before the first symptoms appear. The diagnostic apparatus is small, like a mobile phone, but it can diagnose based on a few drops of blood. High-tech method greatly simplifies diagnosis, and, therefore, contributes to the fastest recovery in the very early stages of the disease.
1. Mini brain
The human brain remains a mystery to scientists. All experiments in this area are based on experiments performed on the brain of animals or dead people. As a result, many features of the brain, its functionality and capabilities have not yet been fully investigated.Scientists already know how to grow skin for plastic operations from cells; now they will have the opportunity to grow the brain thanks to genetic engineering.
