If you asked people in the 1980s what they thought the world would be like in the 2000s, they would probably have come up with a pretty lavish prediction of the world. Flying cars, tiny phones, and a whole myriad of gadgets attached to each person at any given time were the general view of the future a mere 30 years ago. So, what’s different? Well, cars don’t fly, and if anything it seems our cell phones are now getting bigger! But, we are still definitely living in the modern age, in more ways than one. If you are someone who embraces all things futuristic, you can probably appreciate how much modern technology has made our lives more useful. Here are some great ways you can modernize your life to make it run just that little bit smoother (and make it more fun too!).
Fancy making your home a ‘smart home’? This might be an alien term to you. But, it essentially means that you update your home so that nearly all your appliances are controlled by Wifi, via a company such as BlueSpeed AV. Okay, so it might sound scary at first – but, these could well be the homes of the future. A simple example is that you can now purchase WiFi powered thermostats. learn when you like your house to be warm, and when you don’t require any heating. Many of these systems can also adjust heat accordingly depending on what you like. Don’t worry if you’re not happy with what it’s done – you can simply reset it and enter your own commands if you need to. This kind of Wi-Fi powered system also stretches out to other aspects of the home – such as lighting and entertainment too.
Driving has now been transformed from a simple way to get from A to B into a fully immersive, luxury experience. New cars are coming with more features and gadgets than ever before – some more useful than others. But, there’s no denying that some of these new models have some truly impressive aspects to them. Never quite got the hang of the parallel park? Many new cars now have built-in cameras which show up on your dashboard screen, so you never bump your neighbor’s car again. Some other pretty impressive features include windscreen wipers that detect water, and even built-in massage chairs in the seats!
Beauty and technology aren’t the usual partnership. But, they are slowly becoming more intertwined than you might think. The technology market is cashing in on the everyday beauty struggles many women face and is creating products to help combat them. For example, have you ever tried to put body lotion or fake tan on without the help of your husband or a trusted friend? Yep, it’s hard! The ‘Do-My-Back‘ is a creative piece of modern technology that enables you to do it all on your own. Or, if your common beauty vice is finding a foundation to match your skin tone, simply download a mobile color match app onto your cell phone.
