It is arguable that developments in technology over the past few years have come about at a rate far greater than in any comparable era. This is largely down to the rise of digital technology, driven by our continued and ubiquitous use of computers and other such gadgets, and the effect has been profound. It’s not only at work that we have been influenced by technology and gadgets, but in the home. Our lifestyle is very much governed by technology, although you may not realise it.
When we speak of gadgets, we are not talking of frivolous playthings, but of items that can be both fun and practical. For example, one of the must-have gifts last Christmas was the Virtual Reality headset. In conjunction with your smartphone, a VR headset allows you to view things remotely, and it’s not just great fun, but also hugely educational. It’s a prime example of combining more than one device plus using up to date software to provide something the market wants.
