Technology: past, present and future

Technology: past, present and future

Technology has come a long way in the last two decades. Some devices that were in use in the late 20th century and early 2000s are now outdated.

In general, the technological products of the past focused on a few functions that they did well, and today’s innovations focus on offering more possibilities.

For example, older mobiles or “dumb phones” were only good for making calls, sending SMS and, at most, playing fairly simple games. Today, smartphones can do everything.

Pagers, also known as pagers or ‘pagers‘, were telecommunications devices that received short messages and coexisted with analogue mobile phones. Today they have been replaced by apps on smartphones.

In entertainment, items such as VHS, vinyl, cassette tapes and video games have also been replaced by free and subscription-based entertainment apps for smartphones and other devices.

If we make a compilation of these developments, we can find technological products that did not exist two decades ago and that we can hardly live without right now:

New technologies of the future

The new technologies of the future are living with us in our present. The technological changes that have taken place in recent years have revolutionised various sectors, from the productive to the domestic.

The future is not predicted, but created with today’s technologies. The technologies that are creating that future are Blockchain technology, smart contracts, cryptocurrencies, web 3, artificial intelligence (AI)…

A few years ago we imagined a future full of holograms, robots with their own identity, hyperconnectivity and houses controlled by voice commands… and so it has happened! And so it has happened! In fact, it has probably happened faster than we expected.

We are in a constant acceleration of innovation and technology where we must be prepared and walk in that direction. Are you ready?

The new technologies of the future are living with us in our present. The technological changes that have taken place in the last few years have revolutionised various sectors, from the productive to the domestic. The future starts NOW.
