New technologies 2021

Cool new tech for 2021

When we think of new technologies for the coming year, the next models of smartphones and other electronic devices come to mind. But although the consumer offer in digital technologies is undoubtedly the one that sets the major market trends, technology is not only digital, nor are the products that we will see appear this year the vanguard, but rather the commercial exploitation of innovations from previous years.

With that being said, let us take a look at some of the cool new tech consumers will be able to use in the year 2021.

Edge computing

Edge computing cloud technology

Edge Computing is one of the technologies that will define and revolutionize the way in which humans and devices connect to the internet. It will affect industries and sectors such as the connected car, video games, Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. It will make other technologies such as the cloud or the internet of things even better than they are now.

The best definition to understand what Edge Computing is is the following: it consists of bringing the processing power as close as possible to where the data is being generated. In other words, it is about bringing the cloud closer to the user, to the very edge of the network.

What matters when we talk about the edge of the network is that we bring the ability to process and store data closer to the users. Because of this, with edge computing, we can virtualize the server capabilities and enable the processing power to occur on those edge devices.

This makes it possible to move capabilities that were previously “far away”, in a cloud server, much closer to the devices. It’s a paradigm shift that changes everything. The functions are similar, but because the processing happens much closer, the speed soars, the latency is reduced and the possibilities multiply. So you can enjoy the best of both worlds: the quality, security, and reduced latency of processing on your PC, along with the flexibility, availability, scalability, and efficiency offered by the cloud.

5G technology

5G technology

5G is the fifth generation of cell phone technology. It is a new wireless broadband standard that will surpass 4G (or LTE) in speed, coverage, and performance. The 3GPP, a consortium of mobile communications-related organizations and authority on the subject, has approved 2018 the final specifications for 5G in the coming years.

This standard promises to be 10 to 20 times faster than current connections, with a decrease in latency, which can be as low as 1 millisecond. At the user level, this means much more than being able to download a movie in a few seconds. In practice, you will notice that phone interactions with the cloud take so little time that they become imperceptible: imagine clicking on a photo or a video that opens instantly, as if you already had them in local memory

NuraLoop headphones

NuralLoop headphones

Nuraloop earphones are the first intelligent in-ear devices that automatically learn and adapt to the characteristics of your hearing to provide you with a personalized, high-level sound experience.

While the overall consumer market is moving in the direction of true wireless devices, Nura is doing things its own way. The company has launched its second pair of headphones, NuraLoop, which is a pair of connected wireless devices. ears that feature customized sound capabilities.

With the promise of sound that is ideally suited to each individual, a price that is not too high, and strong battery performance, could this be the only pair of headphones you need?

Almost all headphones and earbuds come with a distinctive sound profile. Bass, midrange, and treble are blended in a way that the manufacturers think sounds best. Some let you adjust those frequencies with an equalizer built into the app, others don’t. Nura is quite different from that approach. It customizes the sound to match your ear’s responses to the sound.

Nura’s argument is that, like a pair of shoes, while common sizes offer a fairly close representation of what fits you well, it will never accurately fit your foot unless you map it and get a pair of shoes that match all the contours and bumps of your feet perfectly. It’s the same with sound, or more specifically, it’s the same with how your individual ears react to the sound you hear in them.
