72 stunning things in the future that will be common ten years from now that don’t exist today... Trends AppearingandDisappearing. The Top 10 Emerging Technologies of 2016. Sometimes the world is not yet ready for a new technology to enter the fray.
Virtual reality, for example, sat on the sidelines for many years. The industry went into hibernation around the time of the Dot Com Bust, and it has only recently re-emerged with promise. It is only today that big companies like Microsoft, Google, Samsung, HTC, and Facebook have the infrastructure, peripheral technologies, and capital in place to properly commercialize the technology. Now, instead of using primitive 300 x 200 pixel LCD displays that were prohibitively expensive in the 90s, we are looking at a world where display will be in beautiful 4k quality.
Meanwhile, accelerometers and gyroscopes can measure head movement, and modern computing power can reduce lag and latency. Like virtual reality, there are 10 other emerging technologies that are finally ready for prime time. Pokémon Go and the marketing agencies of the augmented world.

Google’s Vision of the Future: Convenience With a Cost. Top 20 Cell Phones With The Highest And Lowest Radiation. The ability to communicate is important in today’s mobile society.
One communication option is a cell or mobile phone. This offers you different features and opportunities that have been incorporated and evolved in everyday living for most individuals. But in a world where more people have access to a cell phone than a toilet, we have to question: could our phones also be harming us? According to research from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, certain cell phones or mobile devices may be exposing us to harmful levels of electromagnetic radiation. Published in the Biochemical Journal, the study found that a single use of certain cell phones for just 15 minutes can trigger brain cell changes associated with cancerous cell division.
CNET presents the five phones with the highest radiation. The FCC mandates that all cell phones must be tested for their specific absorption rate (SAR) – the rate of which radiation from the phone is absorbed into your body. Uk.businessinsider.
