Gone are the days when people used to look at the clock to know the time or used to wait for a special TV show that will be telecast once a day and no chance for recording or re-watching. In 2016, people have smart watches, Gear VR for experiencing virtual reality, an Apple iPad or a tab performing nothing less than a personal computer! All that I have said so far is to give you a 360 degree opposite picture of how people used to live in the past and how they have enhanced that in the present era.
That technology has has a tremendous effect on us, especially on the youth all over the world – there is no doubt about it will continue to shape up our life with a strong influence. According to a survey in 2015, 80% of the young adults have smartphones which they can use for various purposes. Whether to watch a movie on YouTube, video conferencing via Skype or Viber, sending pictures or texts via Snapchat – you just need a smartphone and there you go! It was not like that back in the 90s when holding a mobile phone was tougher because it was heavy and not everyone could afford one. Not only in the South-Asian region, also in Europe and America a smart phone is the least expected tech product a person will have.
One of the spectacular innovations of the recent times the smart watch which is getting popular day by day. But why do we need a smart watch anyway? The world has become smarter and people are more into everything that is processed. Our food habit has also changed which leads to various types of diseases that you can keep in check with the smart watch. A smart watch can help you get an uninterrupted workout by keeping your stress level low. It can detect your heatbeat, can help you get a better night’s sleep and also improve your eating habits. Isn’t that enough for you to buy one if you have the money? I would say, why not? Give it a try and if you feel it is not worth to improve your lifestyle, sell it on Ebay.
Smartphones and smart watches are for both men and women. But you cannot deny the fact that women swear by fashion. Thus the best way to engage them in fashionable activities would be online shopping sites. Whether it is Amazon or Ebay, women invest a lot on online shopping that helps start up like businesses to expand. Live streaming of fashion shows and other programs has also been in vogue. Burberry, a long-time leader in applying technology to the fashion world – created its biggest splash yet by streaming its autumn catwalk show live on a 32-metre-long screen in Piccadilly Circus. The live streaming continued in 38 Burberry stores around the world, where top-tier clients could click to buy direct from iPads in its Runway to Reality offering.
One step ahead is the virtual reality world with VR gear. Considering the modern lifestyle, movies are a big part of people’s life and today’s world is all about 3D printing. Now you can go and watch Star Wars : The Force Awakens in 3D and can have the best experience ever. Samsung VR Gear, HTC Vive etc. are the latest additions to make your life more tech savvy.
In many ways you can implement technology in your life. But the best part of using it is to keep track of a healthy, better lifestyle. It may be called the choice of a ‘smart life’, a life that depends on technology with a most possible use of the internet in cooking, eating, learning and facilitating educational life with tech products.
