The technological revolution has altered many aspects of life. Television, mobile phones, and computers are all commonplace. Being without these technologies is unimaginable, but there are new technologies that may have even greater impact on our futures. The advantages of technology are clear: improved efficiency and productivity, enhanced communication and collaboration, quicker access to information, better analysis, and decreased dependence on manual labor and human errors. In the medical field, technological advancements have greatly improved the quality of healthcare, boosted life expectancy and reduced disease.

Future technologies include augmented reality, virtual reality, 5G, blockchain, quantum computers, and biotechnology. These technologies will dramatically alter our worlds and make previously impossible things possible.

Augmented and virtual reality merge the digital and physical worlds by bringing our imaginations to life. They are a great tool for many purposes, ranging from entertainment to virtual office visits and even education. They will also allow us to meet with friends and colleagues from around the globe and to interact with 3-D objects.

The Internet of Things is a network of devices that are connected to the Internet that can exchange and receive data. IoT transforms industries, such as manufacturing, agriculture and transportation. By 2025 it is believed that the IoT could encompass more than 30 million devices across the world.
