In the past few years technology has had many new innovations and products come out that have revolutionized the way people interact with the world. In 2015 the apple watch was released which changed how many people used the common invention of the watch. It also added a whole new way people could interact with each other because of the new message type that was released with it. Now, people could communicate with each other on their watches by sending things such as artwork, their heart rate, and animated pictures called GIFs. Because of this revolutionary invention, the field of wearable technology is increasing at a huge rate and is now a common sight.

Another huge advance in technology that we have seen in the past few years and even still going on today is the field of virtual reality. Virtual reality is a form of entertainment which is created by computers that allows you to experience and interact with a 3D world that isn’t real by putting on a head-mounted system. Although this has been around for a while, people have not been able to buy common devices like the Samsung Gear VR which gives virtual reality to anyone who has one of their smartphones. Other companies are trying to hop on the bandwagon recently so a few other versions of this such as the Oculus Rift, Sony PlayStation VR, and Google Daydream View have been released.

Another area where technology is advancing is in the video games industry. The Nintendo Switch is currently being advertised which will bring a whole new way to play video games that has never before been seen. Their concept is that the console you play your video games on will now also be the portable gaming device so you can take your home video games wherever you go and even set it up as a TV and play with other people. These new advances in technology are changing the way people use technology at its core and will shape the way we use it in the future.
