If you want to feel like you are living in the future, a number of technological devices can help you to do just that. To help show your dedication to these amazing tech gadgets and the way that technology is headed, check out the following incredible devices:
A Credit Card Sized Computer
You have probably seen the photos of the computers from decades ago that filled entire rooms. Now, thanks to Intel, you can fit the entire thing in your wallet. Intel recently unveiled its Compute Card, a compute platform that is the size of a credit card. The Intel Compute Card has all of the features of a regular desktop or laptop, including Intel SoC, storage, memory and wireless connectivity. The Compute Card will also come with a number of processor options including the latest seventh generation Intel Core processors.
Virtual Reality on Your Phone
Not that long ago, if you wanted to pretend you were flying you could either close your eyes and use your imagination or maybe watch a YouTube video or two. Now, you can harness the power of your smartphone and a virtual reality device to figuratively soar above the clouds. When it comes to choosing a smartphone that can handle the VR technology and give you your best experience, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a great place to start. The Galaxy S8 has a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor designed for Gigabit Class connectivity, and you can purchase a Gear VR with a controller that works with the Galaxy S8 to give you thousands of amazing 360 degree experiences. The tech gadgets are also easy to use; the in-hand controller of the Gear VR is incredibly intuitive and has a small learning curve.
A Huge and Thin TV
Remember those giant wooden consoles that weighed about 200 pounds and held your grandma’s old television that had a crummy picture and got maybe three channels? The innovative team from LG wants us to eliminate this memory from our collective brains and replace it with the largest, flattest and lightest TV imaginable. Specifically, the LG Signature OLED 4K TV is a whopping 77 inches, and its Picture-On-Wall design means you can lay it flat on the wall, like a poster. Weighing in at 27 pounds, this television looks like a work of art, even when the power is off. Of course, when it’s on you will be blown away by its features, which include cinematic color, active HDR with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos — all of which will guarantee an experience like you are in a movie theater.
A Computer Mouse that Can Scan
Let your computer mouse multitask with the Zcan Wireless Scanner Mouse. You can use the Zcan mouse just like your regular computer mouse, but when you want to scan something, it can easily handle that too. Scan printed text from books, newspapers and magazines and put it into an MS Word document, and since it also “knows” 199 languages, you can scan to speech and scan to translate instantly on your iPhone or iPad. You can also scan documents, receipts, business cards, photos and anything else you wish to scan, all without damaging the originals; if you have a ton of receipts to organize for tax time, the Zcan can help you stay on top of things.
