When someone talks about helpful technology, there are a lot of good candidates out there! However, there are only a few that can get you out of a difficult situation or make your life significantly easier. Here are a few of the best types of technology that has become part of people’s lives, and are guaranteed to make life easier.
Home Smart Hubs
The smart hub has become not just a gimmick that has a few tricks up its sleeves, to something that is evolving into the next best thing since the remote control. The secret is not only how the smart hub has evolved, but also how many other gadgets have now come onto the market that can interact with them. For example, many of the kitchen appliance manufacturers are now starting to make products that can be controlled by Alexa, Google or whatever smart hub you have. They are also so easy to ask instead of having to search on your phone or laptop. For example, it’s easy to ask for the weather or to set a timer, which makes these home hubs useful for that reason alone.
A Portable Battery
How many times in the past have you been out somewhere and your phone battery has dwindled to only a few percent? It is usually the time that you need to call someone, or you want to take a picture! Then, the portable battery charger was developed, and things became a little easier. They are essentially a large version of your phone’s battery, which you can plug into your phone when it needs to be boosted. Early versions were only powerful enough to charge one phone, but they can now charge a phone multiple times before needed to be recharged themselves.
The Internet has to be one of the most useful things in the world right now, or at least after the mobile phone! The invisible network can link anyone to anything in the world in seconds and can bring families closer together with video chat. There are many ways that it makes your life easier; it can help you buy things, store documents and photos, connect with people and also connect you with others that can help you. For example, if you need your taxes completing, then you can search online for a company like Tax Return and ask them to help you.
If you are the type of person that is always losing your keys or your phone, then the Bluetooth tracker will certainly make your life easier. They are designed to be attached to something like your keys, and then if you lose them, your phone can send it a signal so that you can find them. The tracker is good up to 100 meters, but also has a ‘community’ setting that can extend that range.
These are only a few of the many things making our lives easier every day. What will the next few years bring?
