The Future is Now
Approaching the worlds of tomorrow one advancement at a time. What's next? And what will it do?
A wooden box. Seeing this on Kickstarter rendered me speechless. I was simply stupefied at the sight of this box. The amount of its funding going past $200,000 was simply insane to me. Is this how people humor themselves now? Through boxes?
The Tech Yield Curve Inversion
We hear a great deal today about the "yield curve inversion"... and yes, it is a big deal! Why the yield curve inverting is such a "big deal" is the fact that historically (well, just since the end of the Civil War to present day, according to researchers), this occurrence has signaled that a recession was at hand. However, since the "dismal science" of economics is not exactly known for the precision and exactness over time, there is a debate ongoing as to whether this time, the inverting of the yield curve will be different, and not mark the end of the decade-long economic expansion.

Augmented and Virtual Reality: Leveraging and Monetizing the Technologies
This article will introduce both the technologies of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality to later discuss how businesses can leverage such technologies to strengthen their business, or harness their benefits as part of their business development strategy. Moreover, the article will share insights on how we can monetize such technologies to introduce new revenue streams for businesses.
Cashless Monetary Exchange Is Just About Taking Over!
Money has been advantageous in all areas of life. Yes, money is used to measure value, pay all debts and taxes, and also manage inventory. But are the paper notes and metal coins really relevant now? This is what most companies and consumers consider. Digitalization of money is the latest development trend. People have developed trends in electronic payment mechanisms, including cards (debit, credit, and contactless payments), mobile payments, digital wallets (Apple Pay), and so on. This payment system is growing rapidly in both developed and developing countries.
5 Interesting Innovations in Digital Dentistry
And although one cannot do without these attributes, in terms of technical equipment, modern dentistry has made a confident step forward: anesthesia without a syringe, 3D modeling for implants, AR, and much more. In this article, we will take a look at five interesting novelties in modern dentistry.
How Are 3D Printed Houses Shaping the Real Estate Industry
The real estate industry has seen many transformations in the recent past, the most recent being the emergence of 3D printed houses. Indeed, the words of former US President Barack Obama, that 3D technology will revolutionize the world as we know it, has come to pass.
6 Ways Digitisation Has Shaped the Future of the Housing Industry
In our technologically advanced world, it is perhaps inevitable that a “smart house” is joining the ranks of “smartphones,” and “smart cars.” True to its name, a “smart house” is a house that has been technologically optimized. This means a person can control all the technology in his or her house—from computers, and audio systems, to even stove tops, and ceiling lights—with a click of a button, or the tap of a screen.
Health Tech: To IoT & Beyond
It seems like every day there is some new and wildly impressive form of technological innovation on the market. These technologies often aim to make our lives more efficient, effortless, or straightforward. We are able to do more with the multitudes of information this technology is providing us.
Part 2: Today, the Equation Is Simple—Faster Internet Access Equals Greater Economic Opportunity!
In the first article in this series, "Part 1: Today, the Equation is Simple - Faster Internet Access Equals Greater Economic Opportunity," we looked at just how much the world or work—and our lives—has changed over the past decade or so. We saw how that "third place" that Howard Schultz envisioned has become oh so necessary in the way we get things done in the modern world. This is as people—following the classical "invisible hand" of economics have come to frequent—and in many, many cases to rely upon public spaces for their ability to consistently be able to access the internet at reasonably high speeds. The way we live, the way we communicate, and yes, the way we "work"—by whatever definition you choose to apply to that term—has become dependent on good and stable wifi! And so that is why we see so many folks huddled over a laptop and some papers at your local Starbucks, your local coffee house, or the McDonald's on the corner.

The Old-School Tech that Could Enable Fiber Optic Broadband Expansion
All around the world, private industry and government agencies are racing to expand the availability of high-speed internet access to as many communities as possible. They're doing it because they've recognized that in the digital age, broadband internet access is as valuable to an economy as steam power and electricity were to the economies of the industrial revolution. As we head further into a future that's certain to be filled with Internet of Things (IoT) devices and autonomous vehicles and the like, the need for a robust and reliable internet infrastructure will only become more acute.
