Tech in 2020 that will change users’ behavior
Tuesday, February 18, 2020
It seems like 2020 just started, but there are already plenty of tech trends that are starting to prevail this year. Brands are already competing to push their products as the leaders of these trends.
Do you think that all these trends will improve your life or will just “hook” you to the internet and electronics a lot more without getting a good “deal” out of it?
In this post, you can find the top five trends we chose that will change the way we live, we sleep, we communicate, and even the way we connect with other humans in 2020. Keep on reading to find out whether you will like what tech trends in 2020 have in store for you!
5G: The Fastest Internet Browsing Ever
5G was announced a while ago, and while some people are eagerly waiting to connect to the internet using the fastest speeds ever achieved — others are not so keen at accepting 5G.
Even though 5G is the fifth-generation wireless technology — it may generate harmful radiofrequency radiation.
However, most manufacturers such as Samsung or Lenovo are incorporating 5G into their laptops and mobile phones, which means we are going to use 5G or be around it pretty soon — whether we like it or not.
On the bright side, 5G will provide internet speeds of up to 100 Gbps, which is about 410 times faster than 4G.
If you thought 4G was fast, you’ll think twice after using 5G. This improvement in internet speeds will be a game-changer for a lot of industries and individual internet users.
We are only a couple clicks away from purchasing that one item we’ve been eyeing for a long time.
In the store, you might even give up and leave the store without parting with your hard-earned money. However, online shopping is already tempting enough, and in most situations, it’s an instinct that pushes us to shop without thinking twice.
In 2020, a “shopping revolution” is going to combine a couple of things. Not only you will have to start listening to the advertisements on virtual assistant gadgets you’ve purchased with your own money — but you will also never have trouble paying online.
You might have been used to paying through PayPal, Google Wallet, or Apple Pay. But with the advancements in mobile commerce, we will start living in a cashless world where financial apps will prevail.
This is already a big thing in China, where the use of mobile paying apps such as WeChat or AliPay manage almost every purchase, even down to the simplest market purchase.
Not having to bring your wallet every time you go outside is already comfortable for us — but will our mobile phone batteries give us problems with these mobile commerce advancements?
Internet of Everywhere
Depending on your age, you might have been used to physical advertising — or at least the kind you can see in person, whether it’s in the newspapers or at the bus stop.
The internet is getting involved in every industry — and it is getting involved in advertising.
Even though advertising is only a small piece of world, have you started noticing the lack of physical advertisements? They’ve been replaced by digital screens that are controlled with the help of the internet.
The internet is everywhere — and by everywhere we actually mean that we live in the age where the internet connects everything and everyone in an ecosphere that knows no national or international borders.
Take a second to think of ways how the internet incorporates into your life. It may look scary, doesn’t it? That’s just the tip of the iceberg!
Not only does technology change the way we do business, communicate, or even live — but it also changes or at least affects the way we entertain ourselves.
If you’re an avid gamer, we’re sure you will love this trend. With the biggest trend of 2020 among laptops being foldability features, gamers now have a special trend called “notebook gaming.”
This means that a couple of brands have taken gaming to another level by crafting ultrathin and fairly light gaming laptops that increase the places gaming reaches.
Remember the old school times when you had to carry a heavy gaming rig to a local LAN or eSports tournament?
With gaming compactness in 2020, all you will need is a backpack to carry your precious gaming machine.
Sleep Tech is Getting Actively Involved in our Lives
At one point or another, you decided to check the way you sleep and improve it. Why not, right? You want to feel better, have more energy, and enjoy your sleep without any pain at all.
Other than finding a mattress that suits you better, changing your pillow, or going to sleep earlier — there are a couple of different ways to improve your sleep.
This involves the technology of sleep. One of the biggest trends in 2020 is sleep technology —from a Fitbit watch that can track your sleep throughout the night to sleep gadgets that can improve your sleep on all levels.
Some of the best-known tools are smart sleep masks such as the Dreamlight Pro sleep mask. However, there are even technological sleep pods and dream boxes that are crafted only to help one improve their sleep.
Is technology changing your behavior or is it helping how you function, do your daily activities, and entertain yourself?
We are all blinded by the next shiny thing, but how do we know when technology is the technology overstepping and reaching?
It’s up to us to allow a comfortable amount of technological involvement into our lives — so what are some of the tech trends you can’t live without, but also what are some of the trends you would like to incorporate into your life?
Some tech trends are harder to keep out of our lives, such as the 5G network. Still, the choice is ours.
What do you think of the tech trends in 2020 that could possibly change the way we behave?
