The year 2016 introduced stirring technologies, be it digital technology or wearable; they have made our life easier and even luxurious. While 2016 couldn’t meet few of our expectations too, there is a number of sparkling advancements that is expected in the coming year instead.

We’ve tried to put some incredibly cool stuff together which will give an insight of a year rich in technological advancements. These technologies will unveil and will possibly step into the commercial world in 2017.

  1. Machine Learning Technology

Wouldn’t it be cool to see machines learning by themselves without being programmed? Consider your sandwich maker talking to you or your mobile phone giving you suggestions about consumption of calories. Machine learning is a kind of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that makes computers able to learn.

Mark Zuckerberg has already made a custom AI for his home. At the same instant, experts refer to machine learning as the hottest thing in Silicon Valley right now. So there is a lot of room for the quest of innovative solutions through machine learning.Machine Learning

  1. Prosthetic Arm which can sense touch

Prosthetics have been bringing hope for disabled individuals in the past. Revolution in prosthetics occurred when it was first interfaced with the brain. There has already been done a lot of research on the bionic arm, however, there is yet much to discover.

2017 might bring a great good news for people who have lost their arm/arms. Technology will take over human problems and eventually supply the best solution to them. Although a prosthetic arm interfaced with a brain is really expensive, it is indeed a revolution that will continue to explore the horizons of innovation until it reaches to perfection.

  1. Biometric Security

Biometric technology has made swift progress for presenting a solution to digital security related problems. Fraud and theft can be reduced to a significantly low level if biometric security is incorporated in banking systems.

Face recognition and fingerprint recognition are being used commercially, however, there is a lot of scope for a retina scan. Retina scan has not been very successful in the past when some mobile phone companies introduced it. Retina scan being one of many unexplored biometric identification schemes offers vast research opportunities. Who knows? We might be having these security systems in the coming years.


  1. DNA App Store

Like other play stores carry applications and games, DNA app store carries biological information of people. An online store carrying information about your genes will not only give health benefits but it will make health cheaper.

This app store will connect people with respective experts of genetics. These companies/experts will give information based on the genetic material obtained. Experts consider this Helix DNA App Store as the first step towards a new direction with unlimited health benefits just a tap away.

  1. Charging through Wi-Fi

The revolutionary technology of charging devices through WiFi signals is being worked upon. The idea has made enough progress that it may enter the market very soon. The mechanism of this technology is that the signals received from WiFi are converted into signals which would then charge your camera, mobile phone, or any small gadget.

The idea may be expanded to bigger devices once the power consumption issue is resolved. Nevertheless, it is going to be one of the biggest innovations in technology once able to be introduced in the market.

Technology will take several bigger and smaller steps but will continue to evolve every day. Greater expectations lead to more effort; it may work otherwise where more efforts lead to greater expectations. However, the result is always the same – something supremely innovative.
