Latest Technology Gadgets That Are Inspired

Laser guns. Light sabers. Time machine. In case you want to add to a list of high tech but definitely fictional gadgets we can all make a long list of it. A Japanese anime even featured a future space city that resides thousands of people with artificial night and day. Science can bring out the crazy imaginations that we have in us if we’re asked to name a futuristic gadget. But there are a few innovations that were a total rip off from sci fi movies.

Latest technology gadgets you never thought would really exist

In a case of a nagging wife, husbands would always want to have a remote control (like the one in Adam Sandler’s Click) working for humans and just press on that mute button. But the Japanese have a different thing in mind. They have made a special gun that suppresses human speech. It has a simple process. At a distance of about 100 feet, the directional mic installed on the gun picks everything that a target would say, and with a 0.2 second delay the speech suppressing gun plays back what the target has said. Because of that immediate pick up, the brain is being interrupted resulting to the target being speechless. They have designed it for a better mob control purpose.

Throwing up is inevitable after a reckless night of drinking, or overeating, or seeing your ex with an ugly (whatever word you insert). But Invocon, with a contract from the U.S. Navy, built a device with flashy and fancy lights. This device emits the lights with rapidity, and on a target’s eyes it causes dizziness and headache with a good chance of vomiting.

The U.S. Military, apparently, has a device that can cast the popular Harry Potter curse Crucio! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, although there has never been a direct link to HP and the U.S. Military. But the Active Denial System, or more known as the pain ray, causes an excruciating pain by emitting waves similar to what we have on our ovens. It’s not a wand, but the device is a huge disk that’s mounted on an armored vehicle. The ADS has been deployed to Afghanistan but was never used on a real battle. It was tested and went for more than 10,000 trial exposures with a few people included. It was a burning experience, as the test subjects has stated, but the pain vanishes away once they’re out of the beam.

Accessories for Your Latest Technology Gadgets

Most of us are clinging into our new and expensive Apple gadgets; the new iPad, the latest iPhone, and iTouch with insane memory space. We all enjoy its features and we benefit from it every single day. Apple has seen a number of competitions in the market, but a lot would agree that the titan in technology companies still stands atop.

It’s a growing obsession and an expensive hobby for someone to have a collection of Apple gadgets. For one, these devices have an average price of more or less $400, depending on the GB of memory space that it would have. But despite of the emergence of similar and more affordable gadgets in town, a lot would still prefer Apple simply because it’s not chasing the standards for advanced technology; they setup the standards. Not to mention Apple is the forerunner of the touch technology that revolutionized and changed the game totally.

Apple’s latest technology gadgets accessories

Because of the fact that Apple is widely popular among consumers, may it be businessmen, students, professionals, or the average citizen, a few have ventured into making accessories for Apple devices. It’s a good idea knowing that the consumer’s obsession with these devices would also include how to preserve them and add accessories to make it look better.

Gone are the days when iPad cases were those boring black leather cases, rough bags, and sturdy plastic cases that only absorb and trap too much heat. In Japan, the macotakara.jp made a creative accessory for your latest technology gadgets. It’s not just a plain iPad case that you can use for your gadget, but it also comes with a built in keyboard that makes it more convenient to use. With this accessory, you can turn your iPad into a MacBook Pro. This accessory is reported to work fully for iPad 2, and still needs confirmation if it will work on the latest iPad.

This keyboard case connects to the device via Bluetooth, and it features a USB port and a mini USB port. It also has a built-in Lithium Polymer battery that charges the iPad while you’re using it. Now that’s pure convenience. This case is priced $75, but is still in distribution within Japan. But it won’t take much time before it hits the U.S. shores.

Must Have Technological Gadgets

Technological gadgets are designed to offer lots of convenience in life. Mobile phones including smartphones for instance, not only make it easier for people to stay in touch through communication, but they can also perform other computer functionalities. This means that it is possible for users to undertake other duties on the go and without having to carry along their laptops to make it possible. Laptops, on the other hand still offer a degree of convenience over desktop computers. Their portability and feature to be used in any given place and time gives them an edge over desktop computers.

In the modern world, most people have more than one device all in the name of making life more enjoyable. The devices come with accessories such as Bluetooth speakers. The speakers make it possible for the user to enjoy great music output at home or on the go. They are some of the most popular technological gadgets and they offer easy operation be it an iPhone, iPad or other mobile phones. They can also be used for home entertainment, car music and in other outdoor settings to match the needs of the individual user. The ease of use, wireless nature and the listening convenience they offer are some of the high points making the speakers a must-have.

Another must-have gadget is the power bank. Considering how many devices one person can simultaneously, powering is definitely necessary especially on the go. The power bank is a power storage unit that makes it possible for users to charge their devices when they are in places they cannot plug them in for charging. These banks are quite powerful and can charge a number of devices at the same time. They come with basic connectors to make it all possible to do. They simply supply you with power when you need it the most and save you the need to carry different chargers to accommodate the number of important gadgets you wish to carry with you. The credit card power bank is a popular choice since it is well-shaped making it very easy to carry along to serve all your power needs.

Buying the Best

When looking for technological devices that you find most helpful and beneficial to your life, it is important to start with a comparison. Comparing between the different brands and models makes sure that you eventually buy a gadget that you can rely on in serving the needs it is intended for. The fact is that some will be stronger and better than others and it is important to make an informed decision.

Apart from the brand and model, it is also important to check on the affordability of the gadget you are buying in relation to the value it is going to add to your life. It is most advisable to buy a gadget only when you feel it is absolutely necessary in making your life better and more convenient.

Technology Gadgets Versus Traditional Toys

Technology is everywhere and bearing this in mind, more and more people are using different types of technology in several ways.

A recent survey conducted by the Intelligence Group suggests that kids increasingly prefer technology gadgets, such as mobile phones, tablets, iPads, computer games and so on, over the more traditional toys.

Two-thirds of the 800 children surveyed stated that they would prefer to have a gadget bought for them instead of toys to play with. Around 35% of the children surveyed, owned a mobile phone and 28% owned a computer tablet, which incredibly had risen from 5% just two years ago.

Whatever happened to just playing outside with friends making dens, playing hide and seek etc till meal time? I’m not saying that kids shouldn’t use technology, but it’s the fact that there’s way too much influence and pressure for them to own the latest gadget and therefore, don’t want to do things that kids should be.

What The Experts Say

Experts within the IT industry hold the opinion of these findings being good as children between 7 and 13 are now able to have access to increasing amounts of information and be able to tap into their ‘entrepreneur’ skills. Is this a good thing though? Should children have access to information that can be disturbing for them to read about? On the other hand could information that is accessed by children online be censored better, not only by parents but by authorities to make internet browsing safer for children?

How does a survey manage to illustrate these results? They simply can’t, unless they carry out extensive research on the kids themselves and I highly doubt this.

The ‘experts’ may think that this is the case, however, they can’t say for certain that kids using technology gadgets from an early age will give the kids that use them, more chance of owning their own business or being more creative etc. Nobody knows yet, but I don’t think it’s very healthy for kids, especially aged 12 and under, to own technology gadgets.

Children Browsing Online

Most websites are fine for everyone to go on, despite age, however, sometimes even the innocent sites, such as Facebook can have un-precedential consequences for anybody, not just young children; though children are much more vulnerable. There have been cases where people on Facebook have caused much hurt and pain to families and individuals; Facebook is an easy way for sexual predators for example to prey on vulnerable groups of people, children being one of them.

New Technology Gadgets To Look

One of the new technology gadgets anticipations is the Apple iPhone 5 which is rumored to have face recognition and a 64 GB memory. This is a cool phone which is expected to be more user-friendly while maximizing the level of security. Sure it was rumoured to appear in the last few months, in line with normal one-year space between new launches, but Apple is not in a hurry to get it to market as the iPhone 4 is doing just fine in sales. But now new rumours are pointing towards a late 2011 official release.

The iPhone 5 is said to support video chatting, GPS navigation and as usual it will allow users to sync it with their iTunes the same as other tech gadgets. The screen will be scratch protected and which is more, users will be able to watch local television channels. This might even give way for users being able to subscribe to cable channels if any service for iPhone is available. This will be one of the best gadgets so far, never mind the best smartphone.

One of the features of the new iPhone is its PICO projector (rumoured) which will allow presentations to be projected on to a flat surface or a wall. This is good for people who buy movies and cannot carry their humongous television. They can just play their favorite movie and projected on to the wall for better sharing. The projector is useful for school projects or for business meetings. Plus why get a large Plasma TV when you can use that projector to turn each wall into a small cinema. Don’t expect stellar performance, but at night you can get decent images out of the iPhone 5.

It is certain that the newest iPhone will run on iOS 5 which has been an update on the old operating system of Apple. This is also the first iOS version supporting the new iCloud service that keeps all your data in sync with Apple’s own servers. And the basic service is free, but you’ll have to purchase more space if you have more than 5GB of files. This is the same as other latest gizmos of Apple such as the iPad.
