Four Things a Smartphone can Replace Today

Smartphones are, without a doubt, the gadgets of the 21st century. Since the launch of the first true smartphone as we know it, the iPhone back in 2007, these black mirrored gadgets have become an integral part of our everyday lives. This is an age when old and new coexist, but there are some indications that the new will win, rendering some of the traditional things obsolete. Here are some examples of everyday traditional items a smartphone can replace today.

1. Newspapers

Science fiction readers must remember the “electronic newspaper” in Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The astronauts on board the Discovery, en route to Jupiter, have used an iPad-like device to stay up to date with the latest news, transmitted by radio from Earth. The “Newspad” described by Clarke is surprisingly similar to smartphones and tablets used today, and the medium through which we can subscribe to the news of interest for us is the internet. Suddenly printed newspapers have become obsolete… and will disappear in a few decades at most.

2. Cheap Cameras

Small size, “soapbox” cameras were trendy a few days back, but now most smartphones can take better pictures than these, rendering them obsolete. Besides, smartphones also offer the possibility to store the photos taken in the cloud, or share them instantly with our friends and family over the internet. With the increasing penetration of these devices soapbox cameras will surely disappear in a few years time.

3. Television

There are fewer and fewer people watching television as they used to each year. Keeping both eyes on the “idiot’s lantern” is slowly becoming obsolete, as more and more people have access to internet streams and video sharing services. I, for one, haven’t watched TV for years – I find out the news on the internet, and use online media streaming services if I want to watch movies or series. And the device I usually use for this is my smartphone or tablet. Slowly the television as we know it will disappear, being replaced by smart devices that fit in our pockets.

4. GPS, maps, compasses

I have a Nokia smartphone. Not a new one, but one that has been released over a year ago. Still, it has features like a compass, a GPS / Glonass received and a free Maps app that was bundled with it. Whenever I’m lost, all I have to do is take it out of my pocket, search for my destination through the app and follow the directions to get “un-lost” in no time.

As long as these smart devices have their batteries full, they can provide us with replacements for a series of everyday habits and items, simply rendering them obsolete. Besides, they offer so much more – access to information, connections and even games – red flush online casino is my favorite – and ways to entertain ourselves. I wonder what the future brings?

Smart TV

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. offers TV Samsung Smart TV series almost every year. Actually now its catalog currently includes over 3.5 million licensed feature and animated films from leading international film studios, including Sony Pictures, Disney, Warner Bros. and FOX, Universal.

First pilotless F-16

The US air force has test flown an F-16 fighter jet without a pilot on board for the first time in the latest sign of the military’s increasing reliance on drones.

The robotic F-16 flew for 55 minutes with an empty cockpit from a Florida base last week as part of a programme that would see the converted fighter jet used as a target for pilots in training, manufacturer Boeing said.

“It was really amazing to see an F-16 take off with nobody in it,” said Michelle Shelhamer from Boeing, which has adapted the plane for the US military.

The aircraft is one of six “retired” F-16 jets that would be used as aerial targets for fighter pilots training for air-to-air combat, she said.

“They’re basically built to be shot down,” she said. “It’s full-scale, real world, real life, combat training – not with a simulator or anything else.”

Will space tourism ever take off?

We live in fantastic times of fast growing high technologies, incredible scientific achievements and new space findings. Things that seemed completely impossible just a short while ago have turned into reality today, such as all these stunning pieces of new technology being infiltrated into our everyday lives changed instantly everything.

So, it’s extraordinary how far humanity has come as a species in a relatively short period of time! No doubt, the world has been changed dramatically but there is always more to discover, right?

Have you ever thought what’s the next or you do not like to think so far ahead? The next big step is space tourism of course, and then settlements of ordinary people are not so far as well. Space tourism is almost here.

Dennis Tito, a 61-year-old California millionaire and former NASA engineer, became the world’s first space tourist paying $20 million to Russian space agency for the fly in space. Now Dennis Tito is financing a new space project – mission to Mars by a two-person, an American man and woman, in 2018. Obivously space tourism is increasingly recognized as an important future market and there is good business plan behind it because millions of people want to go to space.

Reportedly that Kiwis booked on world’s first commercial space flight, a ticket on this flight costs over $234,000. Virgin Galactic hopes to be taking commercial flights outside of the earth’s atmosphere by 2014.

NASA awards grant for 3-D food printer

Thtat’s just fantastic age we’re living on! “One of the major advantages of a 3-D printer is that it provides personalized nutrition,” Contractor told. “If you’re male, female, someone is sick—they all have different dietary needs. If you can program your needs into a 3-D printer, it can print exactly the nutrients that person requires.”

NASA is certainly a believer: The six-month grant comes to $125,000. The agency specifically interested in using the 3-D printer to feed astronauts on long space voyages.

“Long distance space travel requires 15-plus years of shelf life,” Contractor said to Quartz. “The way we are working on it is, all the carbs, proteins and macro and micro nutrients are in powder form. We take moisture out, and in that form it will last maybe 30 years.”

The home we’ve ever known

We succeeded taking that picture (Voyager 1, in 1990 (NASA)from deep space), and, if you look at it, you see a dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.

The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light.

Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity — in all this vastness — there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It’s been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.

From Dr. Sagan’s book Pale Blue Dot

Future Health Technology

Probably you’ve head a lot about biotechnology. What is it? In short, bio technology is the technology based on biology. For instance biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve people lives and the health or using the biological researches to make useful food products, such as bread and cheese, and to preserve dairy products.

Also progress in biotechnology is currently working on environmentally-friendly biodegradation processes for a cleaner, healthier planet, experimenting with until-now untapped energy sources, and devising useful consumer chemicals such as adhesives, detergents, dyes, flavors, perfumes, and plastics.

The predicted capabilities of biotechnology include
End of world hunger, global starvation
Foods that are better for you and last longer
Disease and pest resistant crops
Accurate delivery of precise amounts of drugs, e.g., targeting cancer cells without damaging nearby healthy cells
Regenerative medicine, replacement organs
Designer organisms
Slowing or stopping aging
Biological computing, wearable computers
Biological fabrication of clothing, plastics, and building materials
Environmentally friendly manufacturing processes that minimize waste
Microbial cleansers
Ultra-strength, lightweight materials
