Five Highly Anticipated Gadgets and Software of 2010
(Page 1 of 4 )
Technology companies canít afford to rest on their laurels. Itís sink or swim in the fast-paced world of technology; new products and the new year must always be kept in mind. Just think of gadget developers as sharks: if theyíre not moving, they die -- and that can occur quite literally in this economy. Now, I know it seems as if summer has just passed us by, but there are already a number of extremely cool gadgets that should make 2010 a great year for tech lovers.
Some of the technology currently being developed in hopes of being released by Christmas of 2010 is so amazing it's almost unbelievable. Take for example the incredibly intelligent digital cameras supposedly being developed in Hewlett Packard labs as we speak. The company is in the process of creating a digital camera capable of translating what's pictured into different languages.
This would obviously be the ultimate gift for anyone who travels abroad often. Don't know what that street sign says that's located in the center of a busy Parisian intersection? Simply take a picture of it and hit the camera's translate button. In just a few seconds you'll know whether cars are supposed to be yielding, stopping, or avoiding u-turns.
Technically, it's impossible to compile a list of the best gadgets for 2010. Though many companies already have their product development lines set in stone, there's no telling which gadgets will appear seemingly out of the blue and take the world by storm. So instead, let's discuss the most anticipated gadgets of 2010. Brace yourself; it's a pretty amazing and eclectic group of gadgets with cell phones apparently being the biggest innovators.
1. Personal Theaters by Motorola
Many of us thought we were as cutting edge as cutting edge got when we emptied out our bank accounts and purchased cell phones that doubled as MP3 players. A lot has changed since the inception of MP3 cell phones. It's almost as if being able to make calls is now an afterthought, as our cell phones can do just about anything these days. Just think of everything your iPhone is capable of; it's almost scary.
Well, according to Padmasree Warrior, former Motorola chief technology officer and current company executive vice president, in 2010 Motorola will offer cell phones that are capable of delivering a complete surround-sound home theater experience. According to Warrior, Motorola's new cell phones will be able to download high-definition movies and would come equipped with a micro-projector, which would enable them to show movies on any flat surface. Reportedly, state of the art headphones will deliver theater-like sound.
The problem with some new gadgets is that though cool, they're not very useful. You would be able to project a movie on a living room wall for all of your friends to see, but would they get to experience the "theater-like sound" without headphones of their own? Obviously, it's unfair to make judgments before the product is released, but hopefully Motorola will take these problems into account and tackle them during production. We'll just have to wait and see.
