We have seen tremendous leaps in technological innovations in the past few years and has brought forth amazing tools and resources, placing a great amount of information at our fingertips. From smartphones, cloud computing to VR gaming has all revolutionized the way we live. However, this is just the beginning as there’s so much to explore in the field of technology and yet more to come. Technology is getting better and smarter day by day and in the near future, we could have all the tech innovations we see in science fiction movies.
This article is about 8 upcoming, real-life tech innovations that are set to reshape our lives, whether you realize it or not. Here’s our list of technologies that will shortly change our lives forever in the next few years:

Electric and Self Driving Cars
Although we have already experienced electronic cars on roads they are now becoming even better. Both Google and Tesla are aiming to introduce self-driving cars within a few years. Moreover, Uber recently founded an R&D center in Pittsburgh paving our ways into a driverless future. Autonomous transport is expected to be much safer and easier than human-driven ones.
The trend of SmartThings and wearable technology is already gaining hype nowadays. These are electronics that can be worn on the body, either as an accessory or as part of the material used in clothing or smart gadgets that can be controlled through the internet or smartphones. For example Apple Watches, Fitbits, Google glasses, etc.
3D printers could forge your digital design into a solid real-life product. Imagine having a personal 3D printer that could print real-life food for you. Many fashion companies like Nike and Adidas are already using this innovative technology to produce light and durable footwear. Moreover, companies like Aprecia Pharmaceuticals have adopted 3D printing techniques to create fully printed body organs. Not only this, but it has also dug its roots in the realms of architecture, allowing companies to work on projects like building 3D printed homes that could possibly end homelessness. How cool is that? In a few years, we would be able to get 3D printed anything, from food to parts of any vehicle or even a spacecraft, whatever one could wish for.
Hyperloop is the underground transport system proving to be a futuristic transportation method pitched by well known US entrepreneur Elon Musk and will soon revolutionize the public as well as international travel. This form of transport is based on reduced-pressure tubes that transmit pressurized capsules in an air cushion driven by air compression or motors. This hyper fast transport will let people travel a distance of thousands of kilometers in a few minutes.
5G is rapidly becoming a reality and could offer prompt download speed wherever you are. As you can imagine, fast connection speeds without overcrowding will usher “connected devices” including from home appliances to cars and gadgets. You can just turn on and off the lights just by a click from your smartphone. (You can look at our article “How 5G will change the world” for more information.)
Artificial Intelligence/ Robotics
Artificial Intelligence in getting “smarter” and being widely accepted for completion of complex tasks. It has the power to change the whole world, the way we live from the medical world to farming. It has already come in our lives as seen from the Voice assistants such as Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant and soon it could eventually find its way into things like robot servants or butlers. We just hope they don’t replace humans.
Technology is advancing at such a pace that in no time, people will start traveling in the Outer space and even begin colonization on Mars. This might have been a dream for a long time but soon it will become a reality as companies such as Virgin Galactic, SpaceX, and even Amazon’s Blue Origin are working to take us into orbit through the spaceship.
AR and VR
Companies are exploring new tech innovations using both augmented reality and virtual reality devices. They can be used in a variety of ways including visual representations of blueprints, real-time gaming to virtual meetings that seem too real to believe. Virtual Reality is one of the amazing inventions of science, allowing people to visit places that might not be physically possible and we can predict its importance in the future world.
