( — July 3, 2017) —  Technology doesn’t always advance at the pace we would like or expect. We don’t have the flying cars that we expected to have back in the 50s and 60s. We don’t have jet packs, we don’t have, well, we don’t have a lot of things. But the world of tech still moves at a great pace and all industries are affected by this.

 Here are a few of the biggest changes that are happening underneath our noses, changes that will greatly impact on a number of industries all over the world.

  • A New Direction in Online Gaming: E-sports like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are changing the way we game, the way we gamble and the way we watch live streams, and this is having a significant impact on many different industries, not least of which is the gaming industry itself. The sports stars of the future will not be the super-fit soccer players and basketball players. They will be hard-working teens who are skilled at a particular game and play on the biggest stages around the world.
  • Tech for All Indutries: A lot of processes that once relied on salaried workers can now be done by machines, some of which are incredibly simple. Everything from accountancy to legal professions are being automated and for anyone involved with these sectors its frightening to think how far this has come. Everyone from criminal defense lawyers to admin staff could see their careers changed by the introduced of automated processes.
  • Faster Fast Food: Fast food companies don’t want to pay a living wage, no matter how much customers and unions argue that they should. The profit margins are slight, because those same customers want cheap food and to make cheap food, you need cheap employees. As a result, a lot of money is being spent on automating this process. In Japan there are already robot servers that remove the need for human employees, and while this are primitive right now, it could be a matter of a few years before they get to the point where robots will be sourcing, prepping, cooking and then serving our food.
  • Electric Cars: This is something we have had for some time, but something that has yet to truly take off. To date you have needed a lot of money to buy and run an electric car, and it hasn’t been very convenient. But that’s changing. All major manufacturers are getting onboard and if things continue as they have been going then we could all be driving electric or hybrid cars by 2020. In fact, if the self-driving tech is anything to go by then we might not need to drive them at all.
  • Internet of Things: The IoT is one of the most exciting technologies out there right now. It has already made the world of advertising a lot of interesting and the potential it has for customer interaction, health and more will make this one of the technologies to watch in the near future. The IoT, as the name suggests, is basically a way of connecing everything to a global system, a way of making everything from clothes to product labels interactive and responsive. It is as every bit amazing as it sounds.
