Technology Has Been Synonyms With Minimalism But The Recent Tech Trends Prove We Are The Epitome Of The Same.

Maitri Panchal

There might be an instance that very few of us still think of buying a calculator. But the probability of the same is rare. When it comes to the essential pieces of equipment that arrives packed in our smartphones they were once different devices. We had to carry around these devices separately. It was a necessity that one could not ignore or it would have directly hampered the productivity level. Technology has been constantly evolving to maximize human efficiency and minimize human labour. Moreover, it is all about packing everything in one place in one single unit to eliminate the hassle. The latest tech devices, be it a computer, laptop, or a smartphone, they have all matured into compact devices. These devices have taken over their other multiple halves and created a prominent position in our lives. Besides communication technology, even the technology of the financial world has all being squeezed into one tiny card, which is also now targeted towards smartphones.

When Steve Jobs envisioned technology, his major target was to not carry an obsolete piece of a technology which is deteriorating at a rocket speed. He wanted to create technology which always had a scope for development in terms of technology and its design, especially its mobility. He took his vision and materialised it when the first computer was introduced. For those who are unaware of the computers we use now, they were humongous back in the day and the tasks performed on it were limited to mundane tasks. Not that the first computer by Apple could do any futuristic tasks which other computers of that era could do, but the design and the perfection it offered was what hit it off. After the computer, the smartphone was envisioned to bring the modern day laptop into the pockets of every man. Keeping the idea intact the trends which followed were practically involving the leading specs of a modern computer and has the potential to be a strong contender in the same arena.

IN-GAME VEHICLES WE WISH WERE REAL

Videogames never fail to transport us to a world that is far beyond our reach, yet controllable by the tips of our fingers (quite literally). While open-world games offer a vast, new lifestyle to explore, they also give us a taste of some unique vehicles. Well, calling them vehicles would be an understatement as these perform so many more tasks than just commute, but they’re some uber-cool pieces of machinery nevertheless. That said, here are some of the coolest in-game vehicles that we would love to test-ride!
