Keeping Up with New Technology
I always love to see how technology works together. If you walked into my house you would see cords running everywhere. All of those cords are connected to a slew of different devices. None of it’s the newest or greatest, but I’ve been able to piece it all together in the past few years. I’m always dreaming about new ways to connect and interact so I get really excited when new devices are announced. In recent months there have been a few big device announcements that have really peaked my interest.
Have you ever seen the movie Minority Report with Tom Cruise where he is using the computer with the wave of his hands? This little device is aiming to do just that.
The Leap can fit in the palm of your hand and once connected to your computer via USB, it creates a four-cubic-foot virtual workspace. The developers have released a few stats on how the device can read all ten of your fingers simultaneously to within 1/100 of a millimeter or even your hands holding a small pen. New technology is usually introduced with a price range out of the normal consumer. The Leap aims to take on that battle with a starting pricetag of $70.

In our fast-paced world being able to multitask has become a priority. Google has taken a new route with their Google Glasses project.
Sure they look ridiculous and anyone wearing them looks like they are from the future, but the ability to be able to take photos without getting out your phone or receiving driving directions without having to look down at the GPS your phone is extremely practical. They have not yet released any technical specifications or a release date. For now it will live on as a dream, but knowing Google, it will quickly become a reality.
Here is Google’s concept for how the product will work.
What new technology are you looking forward to?
