Anyone who has travelled or does travel regularly in the City of London knows how much of a nightmare is to get around. It’s challenging enough on the weekends and off-peak hours. When you work in London and you need to travel there during peak hours, it is no picnic.
Transport for London are bringing out a new scheme which will place traffic information and live updates on the back of busses.
The famous red double-decker bus will now be a way to see live traffic information so you can be kept up to date on road closures nearby or accidents which could hold you up.
For motorists this is a much safer alternative than to keep checking your phone for traffic updates, with traffic update on busses there is no need to look at your phone and you just keep your eye on the road thus making it less distracting when driving.
Trials of this new scheme have actually started between Liverpool Street and Clapham Junction, these trials will continue to run for the next six months to see how they perform and how they are going to be taken by the public and the motorists.
If you think things like the iPad or the iPhone are cutting edge amazing technology then you are seriously miss in formed. There have been some very good advancements in the technology world but this goes far beyond the reach of companies like Apple, Microsoft or Sony.
In this article we will be looking at some of the technology is inventions and creations that you probably haven’t heard of but now you have.
You may have heard of things like virtual reality and possibly even augmented reality. But mixed reality is a whole new different ballgame. Things like Microsoft hollow lens are actually taking this into the next level which is called mixed reality.
Mixed reality is almost in hybrid or a mix of virtual reality and all mentored reality and a little bit of reality reality thrown in. This is where you are able to put graphics in your real life environment, where ever you are.
Another technology that seems to be coming up is called robotic exoskeletons.
Exoskeletons which are robotic have been helping us humans for a while now.
They are meant for those of us who are injured in some way and have lost one of their body limbs. I actually think they look very cool as well because you can’t be part man, pop machine.
3-D mapping is another very nice technology used to give the user a much more realistic vision of what needs to be shown.
With 3-D mapping you can visualise yourself in a building so for people like estate agents or even museums for guided tours, this technology is actually groundbreaking.
Flying cars another tech which is actually quite cool and if it does kickoff it will be a life changer. Imagine flying yourself to wherever you want to go, in the whole wide world. This is another tech thats on the horizon which will be able to give you that power. One of the company which will be doing this is actually backed by Google’s Larry Page.
