Technology is progressing at an amazing pace. Every day there are a number of scientific innovations being made in different parts of the world and advancement is being made in every existing field. In the year of 2012, there have been a great many creative ideas and products. Here are the five top innovations of 2012 that have made a mark.
1. Touch Computing
With the implementation of graphical user interface (GUI), normal desktop computers is now being upgraded with touch screens. The technology here is similar to the touch screen concept of iPhones. So far, there have been two types of approaches, the use of resistive screens and capacitive screens, the latter of which is being used more often recently. This technology has really brought out a new age of PC paradigms.
Many people are familiar with the best known tech gadgets such as the iPod and iPhone, but here are several technology inventions that you may not have heard about yet.
The Tri Brand Phone made by Chinavision is a Touchscreen cellular phone with a built in projector. It allows you to project videos, pictures, address and phone data and many other things onto a wall. The Tri Brand Phone is already selling like mad. One reason for the interest is the affordable pricing of only $365. The Tri Brand Phone also includes multimedia functions like a digital camera for picture taking and video recording, mp3 and mp4 player functions, an eBook reader, and a special battery for long usage.
Once upon a time, when our parent century was barely forty, highly powered future computers were imagined to be technological titans. To be effective, each computational colossus would need to be the size of a skyscraper, or so scientists speculated.
Today, at the dawn of a brave new century, those would-be prophets have capitulated their claims. Computers, like everything else, are getting more powerful as they get smaller…
There are a number of educational training opportunities for those looking to pursue a career in medical technology. Accredited vocational schools and colleges are available to provide students with the training they need to enter into successful careers in the field. Students can gain the skills needed to enter into the career field prepared for an exciting new career. Professionals are trained to analyze various fluids in order to help diagnose and treat patients. Training is available to students at a variety of levels including certificate and bachelor degree levels.
Certificates in medical technology can be obtained by enrolling in an accredited vocational school or college. Training at this level can require students to complete anywhere from one to one and a half years study. Coursework will vary by program but may consist of course subjects such as:
Telecommute is fast becoming a buzzword nowadays. The routine 8-5 office jobs are fast becoming a thing of the past as the work environment, job descriptions, and methods of doing work are evolving. People who work these days are no longer confined to physical offices because technological innovations have enabled the phenomenon that we now call telecommuting — which means, in the simplest terms, working remotely.
Of course, there are certain things we have now that make telecommuting possible, and if it weren’t for these innovations, we would all still be stuck in the caveman days of work. Here are some of the technological innovations of recent history that makes collaboration possible.
No matter what innovations your organization has decided to pursue, and regardless of the innovation strategy you’re following, there will always come a point where innovators need to deal with their information technology cousins.
Technology is at the center of most production and productivity in many industries, from those dominated by industrial age economics to the emerging innovation economy companies that are presently leading the charge to recovery.
Any technology innovation program may face many problems; from legal problems including inhibiting rules and regulations, competition from fellow and sometimes bigger, more experienced innovators, lack of adequate skills and experience, inadequate market research and lack of proper management. Funding however is the biggest and most common problem that any entrepreneur may face. Any business needs money to operate and research and development programs need even more money. Equipment needed in research and science labs is not cheap. Neither is the labor required to do the actual research. Apart from equipment and research being very expensive, there are other money intensive services like transport and advertising.
For many entrepreneurs running a technology innovation program, funding is an issue. This is because technology innovation is a high risk money gobbling business with no guarantees of success. Hence, many credit lending institutions shy away from loaning to innovators and especially young innovators who are yet to make a mark in the innovation industry. If at all the loan is granted, it comes with high rates of interest and the stringiest rules possible. This is because the loan is viewed as high risk with little chance of it being repaid in time if it is even repaid at all.
Technology is everywhere and bearing this in mind, more and more people are using different types of technology in several ways.
A recent survey conducted by the Intelligence Group suggests that kids increasingly prefer technology gadgets, such as mobile phones, tablets, iPads, computer games and so on, over the more traditional toys.
Two-thirds of the 800 children surveyed stated that they would prefer to have a gadget bought for them instead of toys to play with. Around 35% of the children surveyed, owned a mobile phone and 28% owned a computer tablet, which incredibly had risen from 5% just two years ago.
