What alternatives are viable for delivery of technology to the public in the near future? Well, by discussing all the benefits of the product, customers increase their interest and look into purchasing or upgrading. Another alternative way to deliver technology is to create a product unique in its own class. Everyone is looking into tablets and Smartphones, but no one is looking into new technology for cooking, or cars. It’s a leap in a unique direction, but it goes against the norms. Distance learning has a long way to develop. It integrates video communication, expanding on features like Skype, but for purposes not yet examined. Video conferencing in classrooms with guest speakers that could explain things via computer. Or teachers teaching in other locations. We already have a virtual keyboard. What’s stopping us from creating a platform that pops out of a small box with every computer application at the imaginary touch of our hand. Looking at the bigger picture and seeing what we need to improve on instead of upgrading things that already exist. Water purification machines, medicinal machines, security needs could all use new looks on technology.
Making your products in a way that is attractive to businesses can give you a strong competitive advantage over the competition. - This opens up a market for you that allows you to sell large quantities of your product to a single buyer…the company.
- Technology that can make the job of people in the business world easier and more efficient without losing effectiveness is a what businesses will be attracted to Internet has linked the world together and people could communicate across the world from the computer on their desk.Now you can do it from mobile devices at anytime, from anywhereBusinesses love it and if you can convince businesses that your product can give them a competitive advantage over their competition, it will create a competitive advantage for you as well
Future Processor Growth
Future Processor Growth Moore’s law How its held true How computers have advanced in recent years Speed Power Size
Have we reached the smallestusable footprint?? No, of course not
So many possibilitiesWithin today’s fast growing world of technology products are constantly getting smaller and smaller so it is easier to travel with, carry and manage. Two products that we will touch on are: Cell Phones Computers
Nanotechnology The engineering of functional systems at a molecular scale Deals with objects smaller than 100 nanometers. 1 Nanometer = 1 billionth of a meter (Comparable to avg. human hair which equals 100,000 nanometers)
Nanotechnology Desktop computers transformed to the size of a watch Cell phones could become the size of dimes and attached to an individual’s collar Car engines smaller than the tip of your finger, but operates 10 times longer than current ones
Nanotechnology cont’d The development and research of Nanotechnology would create possibilities that would allow devices to take up less space and operate on a level exceeding any existing product. It has the capabilities of change the capabilities of chemistry, mathematics, biology, physics and computer science.
