Trending Gadgets is a fabulous book that presents a paradigm shift in the way we think about technology and our place in the world. In this book, author Rick Schmidt tells us that technology is now our friend and we are its masters. He starts by explaining that new technologies can be an aid to human health care, where advances in technology can help to improve the life of the human race.
The book begins with a discussion of tablets which he introduces as “trending gadgets” in this chapter. A tablet is something that any of us can have, even kids can use one and make it do almost anything. They are great for time management, for homework, for playing games, for movie watching, for shopping online, for consuming media and for games.
Prepare To Witness The New Era
In the second chapter, I was surprised to learn that in the future, we will not live in homes that are powered by electricity, but will live in spaceships and water-based places. These will be better spaceships than homes, but we will not dwell in them because of the fact that they are powered by magic crystals. We will not even have televisions because they will be crystal ball-shaped and in them, the technology will be built. There will be no television set, no radio, no computers.
In the third chapter, I was surprised to learn that there will be no more “hearts”, there will be no more “you know what they say” and that we will be able to survive the extinction of the human race because we will have candles for light and no need for artificial light sources. We will have a fire on our hands and they will not turn into sticks of wood.
Reading glasses will allow us to see better. We will not have to stare into a television or movie screen when it comes on. We will not have to read the words on the pages of a book. Reading glasses will do this for us.
Memory chips are used to store data. The things we want to remember and the things we want to explore will be stored there. In the fourth chapter, I am surprised to learn that we will have ice cream machines. No more car washes, no more frozen yogurt shops, we will have pet dogs, cats and dolphins, parakeets, rats, and other pets. There will be no more hospitals and no more doctors, nurses, patients, surgeries, and so on.
There will be no more newsprint, newspapers, TV and radio, gossip websites, television stations, car washes, washing machines, etc. We will not have any of these things in the future because they are “trending gadgets”.
Well, let’s talk about the word “trending” for a moment. For me, it means that we have seen something that changes things. It also means that we are in the know and that we are not stuck in the rut that society and other things like cars and so on have created for us. If you ask me, it is our very essence, our individuality, our character, that has to be innovated into something that we can all benefit from, or else, what we have has no value whatsoever.
Advancement In Technology
Gadgets are supposed to be in constant motion. They are supposed to have higher quality, which they can now achieve because of the advancement in technology. Gadgets can now keep us up-to-date with the latest news and information. So we can decide what to do with that information, and what we should do with the information. We can learn and choose what we learn, which has always been impossible before.
Gadgets can now be free. We no longer have to pay a monthly fee to have access to it, like we used to. They are free because technology has made it possible.
We no longer have to rely on gifts, say with a gift card, or something to that effect. That stuff doesn’t cost much or do very much good anyway, so why spend a lot of money on something that might do a little good?
We have the tools and the means to change things and do things, through the technology of gadgets. That is exactly why the gadgets have to become a thing of the past. Hence, the future will be a more exciting place to live in.
