Updations in computer technology
Generation of computer has been changing everyday that is very difficult for a person to be updated in all the technologies at the same time. First starting with a computer of a room size to a palm sized computer, the world has changed in terms of technology a lot. We have come a long way to be sure, but when it comes to the field of user interface and their is a lot more to come in future.
This is the era of touchscreens that is Touchscreen smartphones began entering the market around that time as well, introducing a range of other tactile command prompts like the poke (to simulate pressing a button), the pinch (to zoom in and out), the press, hold and drag (to skip between programs, usually).
These tactile commands gained traction quickly among the public for a number of reasons: They were new. All the cool (famous) kids were doing it. Touchscreen technology became cheap and mainstream. But most of all, the movements felt natural, intuitive.
some of the upcoming latest technologies that would change the whole future of these computers are:
- gesture controls
- 3D interface
- virtual reality
- Augmented reality
Gesture controls are similar to the touch screen controls. Right from a long time we have been using this feature in our day-to-day life but to move this in a further direction the engineers have been working on air control which have been a great attraction to the gamers all over the world. This technology is mostly used in PlayStations .
Using this technology, you will one day sit or stand in front of a large display and use various hand gestures to command your computer. It looks really cool , but as you might guess, hand gestures might be great for skipping TV channels, pointing/clicking on links, or designing three-dimensional models, but they won’t work so well when writing long essays.
Holograms have been a great attraction to many users out their in the real world ,this technology is also called as 4 D technology that is we can see the audio or the video from all the directions.
Virtual reality is the best technology in the market now a days , we best call this as VR , using this technology many mobile companies have released VR glasses. The VR is computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way by a person using special electronic equipment, such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors.
Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented(or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data
Upto the are the already existing technologies in the market but coming to the augmented reality is upcoming technology which is used very rarely by big professional people. To know about them specifically please tap on the name to know more about them in my linked articles.
