Never more than now has technology been an intricate assimilation into the day to day lives of humans. Today we set out to explore the modern advances in graphic technology and note the biggest advantages they provide.
#4. Oculus rift– This new technology goes beyond just playing video games. It engages more of our senses and provide a window into the future of interacting with media. The implications with this technology are endless.
#3. Sketchup– This program brings basic modeling to the main stream allowing everyone the ability to visualize what their 3D creation. Although still popular today some of the industry standard modeling programs are extremely pricey, and difficult to learn. Sketchup does not quite provide the same level of freedom as these other bigger programs such as 3ds Max however the simplicity of it makes it very approachable for someone with some existing computer skills.
#2. Youtube/ Facebook 360 degree video– The release 3D panoramic images is nothing new however the integration of it in video allows the average person with a smart phone the ability to create their own VR headset with no additional hardware. The level of immersiveness in this type of video is unmatched. You can walk down a street and look at every sight and sound as though you are right there. In our opinion we think movies could start to incorporate this sort of experience where you become “there”
#1. 3D rendering– Due to advancements in graphic cards and 3d software the quality, accuracy and speed at which 3D renders can be created at a relatively low cost continue to create a shift in Real Estate to showing architectural visualizations rather than creating expensive show rooms or real life models
What are we without our cellphones these days. They provide us with the ability to communicate, learn and be entertained. But which apps can we no longer live without?
#5. Camera: The next generation of phone users has become obsessed with their own vanity and humble brags. The single most used function on a phone seems to be the camera. The number of selfies taken each year seems to grow exponentially with no sign of slowing down. Beyond vanity there are some really beneficial uses to this. From photographing prospective real estate to keeping important paper work in one place, the camera is one of the most critical aspects of a phone.
#4. Games: We have all become so consumed by modern technology that we can no longer sit still and enjoy a break. Now when we are left alone to our own thoughts we go a little nutty. As a result that awkward silence of sitting alone is now consumed by playing simple, mindless cellphone games. They generally require very little skill or attention however we are addicted to it and we’re not afraid to admit it by posting it on social media. Can we live without them? Maybe… but do we prefer to use our “brain break” to check if our farm is still thriving? Absolutely.
#3 Email, Text, Phones: Coming in at a meager number 3, those features our old “dumb” phones were capable almost seem like a feature that is often glossed over. There are so many ways to get into touch with someone these days the idea of not having the “big three” at our disposal doesn’t seem quite so daunting to me.
#2. Google Maps: I’m a little biased with this subject. Without google maps I personally would probably be stuck somewhere in the middle of the city right now spinning in circles weeping. The concept of heading somewhere new without the reassurance of a constantly updating, ever directing map is terrifying. Are we losing our ability to navigate and go through that moment of intense focus when the music is muted so you can put all brain power to use beginning to abandon us, I never had it so I can’t speak to that.
#1. Social Media: Depending who you are chances are you are completely intertwined with the use of social media. Facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat… the evolution of how we communicate and interact with each other is constantly evolving.
