Wearable tech 2016

There are plenty of interesting wearable devices scheduled to be released this year, and quite a few are sure to make the headlines.

Let’s take a look at some:

This very interesting smartwatch was the 10th most-funded Kickstarter project last year. It’s compatible with both iOS and Android, and comes with a few useful apps like a heart rate monitor and fingerprint ID. The most impressive part is, there’s going to be a range of modules in the form of watch strap links, which allow you to upgrade the device.

Saving animals using 3D printing technology

Saving animals using 3D printing technology

Out of all the latest technological breakthroughs during the past decade, 3D printing technology is one of the biggest game changers, if not the biggest.

With the way 3D tech is advancing these days, it’s not that hard to imagine a future where you’d never need to buy anything from stores or order online. All you’d have to do is choose something – anything – from your computer, click “print,” and have it materialize right in front of you, including food.

It goes much further beyond that, as well. In the medical industry, 3D tech is used to create highly precise prosthetics, and even bioprinted cells and tissues, helping combat disease, illness, and disability like never before.

3D technology is definitely the stuff of magic, and it’s not just for us humans, it’s helping millions of animals also.

And as we all know, during the late 20th century we finally created rockets powerful enough to overcome gravity, eventually getting us to the Moon.

Now new advances in technology have made it possible to set our sights on a destination more than 200 million kilometres (124 million miles) away: Mars

Let’s take a look at some of the puzzle pieces coming together to make a trip to Mars a reality:

Why Apple made antivirus iOS apps unavailable

Why Apple made antivirus iOS apps unavailable

In March 2015, Apple cracked down on antivirus apps, pulling a huge number of them from the App Store. Many believe the reason behind this move is to eliminate concerns about whether or not iOS devices are susceptible to virus and malware attacks.

One of the apps removed from the App Store indicated it was a virus barrier. Apple informed them that the app’s description was “misleading” and could potentially lead customers to believe that viruses are present in iOS.

Why is Apple so confident in their ability to protect against vulnerabilities?
