5 BIG Technology Trends to Watch This Year
Remember the Ebola scare of 2014? That has really lit a fire for a rapid test in adverse environmental conditions. This new technology is emerging this year and will consist of a special paper that will identify specific proteins of potential pathogens not only for ebola but for four other types of especially lethal fevers as well.

A patent has recently been filed for using the heat from two lasers pointing at each other in front of a military vehicles . The idea is that in a split second as lasers collide the heat produced acts like a shield and bends around the close object temporarily. This would be protective against roadside explosions as it would move the energy away from the target.

In keeping up with our cell phone love affair especially when it comes to taking all of those pictures, a 200GB microSD has just been released. It can now store more now than ever and has incredible sharing speeds. Look out 4G/LTE, 5G is on the way and of course that will mean newer phones will be required. This will have to be ironed out by the techies in many countries to ensure communications are legal.

One of the big software companies has announced a wireless goggle that allows you to build holograms by wearing the device, operating with your gaze and opening the software tools. You use your hands to build your object as it floats through the air. This can then be converted to an actual prototype on a 3D printer. This will take holography into the room you are in allowing you to design around the objects in the room, anything from furniture design to creating your very own video game. You are limited only by your imagination.

Now imagine this; a group of protesters in Spain recently used holograms of themselves marching at night in the street before a government entity and television cameras. Why? It is illegal to protest and march physically in their county. They looked like a bunch of ghosts shouting oaths against that very law. No one could be arrested!
