Technology is booming. In fact, we’re incredibly lucky to be living in a time where technological advancements are continually coming our way as we’re being exposed to some remarkable innovations. It’s a golden age, really.
With 2020 firmly underway, the year ahead will undoubtedly throw up some new technology we can’t wait to get our hands-on. The usual innovations in the gaming world, for example, will always be there, where new games will be released, be it PlayStation 4 creations or various mobile casino games like the premium European roulette at casino in Canada and the like, but cars, televisions, tablets and everything else in the space will surely be on the end of a technological spruce up too. It’s just the way the world is now.
So, with that in mind, we felt it was necessary to go through some of the cool new gadgets of 2020 so far.
Mercedes-Benz – VISION AVTR
Teaming up with movie director James Cameron and the rest of the Avatar team, Mercedes-Benz aimed to create a car that was both stylish and earth-friendly. Subsequently, the Mercedes-Benz – VISION AVTR is born. It’s unlikely that it’ll be on the market anytime soon, but it certainly looks like it could be one day. The car has shedloads of remarkable features, with the fact that it has no steering wheel certainly one of the standouts. It is also hugely efficient with an electric battery to neurons that flow around the vehicle to sense a passengers’ energy. On top of that, the car can also roll sideways like a crab on rotating wheels, with the back also being covered in solar panels, alongside the frankly ridiculous fact that it can also recognise the driver’s breathing patterns. Amazing, really.
Samsung Sero TV
Everyone enjoys settling down in front of the television after a hard day at work, right? Well the Samsung Sero TV promises to make those occasions that little bit better. Going beyond both 4K and LED, the Samsung Sero TV can transition from a horizontal plane to a vertical one. The word Sero means “vertical” in Korean, with the TV already proving to be a huge hit in South Korea. Expected to be available in stores in the coming months, this television – which can essentially mimic a 43-inch phone screen – will be in high demand.
Alienware Concept UFO
The Alienware Concept UFO has been hogging many tech news headlines for a while now, and it’s understandable as to why. Seen as the Nintendo Switch of PC gaming, this handheld device not only looks the part but it packs one hell of a punch too. It has detachable cons, with a bridge available to connect them to make one big controller, and a kickstand to help prop up the eight-inch display. Its power is quite remarkable too, with its makers claiming it’s just as powerful as a PC. When it comes to rollout, though, that remains a mystery.
LG Signature OLED TV R
Expected to go on sale sometime this year, the LG Signature OLED TV R is rumoured to cost around $60,000. Yes, that’s right, $60,000 for a television. What do you get for your $60,000 you may ask? Well, it’s a 65-inch TV that rolls down into its base when it’s not needed. It essentially can be hidden away when you don’t want to use it, all by the touch of a button as it folds into the base. How we watch television is changing, although considering it costs $60,000, we can’t be sure how well this particular innovation will go down.
