Technology is always changing and its inability to stand still is something that captivates our interest and means that there is always something new for us to fixate on. However, whilst a lot of technology makes big headlines and is splashed all over the media; there are certain things that you won’t even be aware of. This is not to say that they are not as exciting, interesting or life changing as the products which receive plenty of tech PR though, as there are sure to be many things on this list that will delight any technology fan.
The Vertical Ship:
Most people would see the bow of a ship poking out of the ocean and immediately assume a tragic accident had occurred. However that would be a conclusion too quickly jumped to if the ship in question was this remarkable ship that is being used by the US navy. The best thing about this is that it has been in action for over 50 years now and I’m willing to bet that most people reading this would have never heard of it. The ship is built to be fully functional in both a vertical and horizontal position and can easily switch between the two.
Printable Body Parts:
It seems that everything these days is getting an upgrade to a ‘Smart’ version of itself. We’ve had Smartphones, Smart TVs and we’ve just discovered Smartwatches, but now we also have Smart Glass. In the wake of new environmental regulations; it is now more important than ever to try and build homes that are eco-friendly, and this new kind of glass is the latest revelation. It is coated with a layer of indium tin oxide and can block out heat and light when an electric current is passed through it. Homeowners spend hundreds of pounds a year on heating and cooling their properties and this new development could make things a lot cheaper and easier. Although this is good news for fans of technology and energy efficiency; it could be curtains for blind makers.
