The moment we start thinking ‘enough for now’, technology finds a way to sneak into our lives with some bold innovations. In 2014, a remarkably large list of innovations was introduced to the world, right from a furious self-driving car to some groundbreaking apps. Now in 2015, the tech-world has something superior in its bag. Here are top five picks for 2015 – innovations that changed the world.
1. Tesla Autopilot
Cutting-edge software that converts your Model S into an autonomous car, the Tesla Autopilot is groundbreaking for a few reasons. Most important being – it’s actually available and it costs mere $2,500. However, YouTubers have already shown it can be dangerous, with some people complaining it’s not as good as the Google Car. I agree, but can you actually afford the Google Car? No. So think about the lighter version.
2. Dropbox Paper
Dropbox Paper made into this list not only because it’s a tough competition for Google Docs, but also because it allows you to collaborate on code snippets. In fact, Paper is so clean and user-friendly interface that it catches your eyes right away. Introduced by a company that desires to be something more than just a file storage space, DropBox Paper can be the next big thing in the industry.
3. Facebook M
Facebook M, an advanced application to combine Al and real-world people is the latest talk in Silicon Valley. Let’s understand the tool this way – when you chat with your online friend and speak about an action, Facebook M is there to execute it in the real world. If you mention booking a venue for your dinner or looking out for a parking spot, Facebook M will do it for you. Hopefully, the robot will soon start answering your emails.
