ABOUT  TECHNOLOGY

Predicting successful new technologies is a risky business – for every iPad or lightbulb, there’s also a portable travel hammock or an Apple Newton. With that caveat in mind, we’ve collected together a list of the technologies that we think will make a splash next year, and even, in a few cases, change the way we live and these technologies nearly come in few years.

1} Solar panel phone screens

I’ve been predicting that these will be A Big Deal for over a year, and have partly included them because I just think they’re really cool. But as with many new technologies, several sets of researchers are currently working to make transparent solar panels better and cheaper, which means that next year could be the year consumers finally get hold of them. Once on the market, they could invisibly collect solar power on phone and computer screens, and even on windows.

2} A robot to schedule your meetings

Artificial Intelligence still can’t have a totally convincing chat with us, but it’s now sophisticated enough to carry out online customer service, and, as it turns out, be your personal assistant. New app x.ai lets you email “Amy” about a meeting you want to set up, and she liases with you and the other person to find a time that works.

3} A hotel in space

Russian company Orbital Technologies reckons it’ll be sending tourists into space as early as next year. Guests would zoom up to the Commercial Space Station on a rocket, then spend their time in one of the station’s four cabins enjoying zero gravity and watching earth through the ship’s giant portholes. And this is only the beginning: Mashable has totted up nine commercial companies planning to send normal people into space over the next decade or so.

4} Self-driving cars

Yes, they’ve been around for ages, but now we have on-the-road testing and the beginnings of a legislative framework for the cars, they could soon be an everyday reality. Google has announced it’s teaming up with Ford to build self-driving vehicles, hinting at large-scale commercial production in the near future.

5}  language barriers

Messaging and voice call service Skype recently released a live translation tool, Japan is trialling a live translation megaphone to use during the 2020 Olympics, and Google’s Translate app translates street signs and real-time conversations. It looks like technology may finally be breaking down the final barrier in worldwide communication.
